Food for the Gods: Sacred Offerings and Scents for Specific Deities
A Livestream Class with Ellen Evert Hopman
Sunday, March 5 at 12:15 pm in The Sun Solarium
Those of us who have been on the Pagan path for a while may eventually find ourselves “chosen” by a particular God or Goddess. I have met American Krishna devotees, Spanish Wiccans, and Japanese Druids, as well as cross-cultural devotees from many other nations, and I have found that our Pagan deities have large enough Spirits to encompass and welcome practitioners of all nationalities. This talk will cover specific deities from different traditions and give examples of food items and other offerings that are appropriate to honor them.
As we set up our altars to honor the deities that have chosen us, it is polite and respectful to give them the foods, herbs, scents, and other offerings they actually desire. Here are just a few of the deities that will be covered; Abellio, Afallach, Ahti, Áine, Airmid, Ajé Shaluga, Akka, Akuna, Amalur, Amaterasu Ōmikami, Amun Ra, Anath, Angus Óg, Annikki, Anubis, Apophis, Aphrodite, Apollo, Daghda, Danu, Demeter, Diana, Diancecht, Eostre, Erebus, Ereshkigal, Eris Discordia, Eriu, Esu, Eurynome, Faunus, Fenrir, Fenris, Flidais Foltchaín, Flora, Fortuna, Freya, Freyr, Frigg… and as many as I can cover in one hour and fifteen minutes. Learn to craft rituals that will be pleasing to the Gods you love!
