Questions about marrying gods or spirits?

I haven’t talked about it because I’m a tad superstitious when it comes to talking about writing projects before a certain amount of work has gone into them, but Beth has talked about it, so why not?

We’re writing a book on Sacred Marriage.

(Most important to note: we’re writing a book on our experiences of being godspouses for the last decade and then some. We are writing the book we wish had been when we started upon this path. It is not meant to be an authoritative “this is how you must do it” book — anyone who reads our blogs or knows us online should hopefully know by now that that’s not how we roll. We are far more in the “this is what works for us,” camp.)

Part of the book will be addressing questions, so if you have any to ask, now’s your chance! I’m not saying we will cover all of them, but we are going to be address the most common ones. If you have questions, if you’re curious about this thing called Sacred Marriage, if there’s a topic you’d like to see addressed, let us know! If you are upon this path yourself and there are things you wish you’d known in the beginning, please share! Email me (bluedolfyn at g mail dot com) Please title the email “Questions about god-spousery” or something equivalent so it stands out. We may not answer them all, but I will try to answer the ones that we won’t cover in the book here on my blog. And thank you, in advance, for your help with this project!

(Oh my god the typos. I kan rite reel good.)

  1. I always have a ton of questions about being a godspouse, but there’s never any manual for this path? I find this a positive and informative book to make. I know I, as well, would have loved a book on this. It would have been helpful by far for me!

    So very yes!!! If you have any questions about god-spousery, whether they’re questions you had when starting out you wish there had been information on, or questions you have now that you’re just starting out, or you’re curious about god/spirit marriages, now is the time to ask!
    Jo and Beth are writing a book about god/spirit marriage!! Something very much needed as there has been a god/spirit marriage ‘splosion on the interwebs, and so little solid information.
    I think this is a fantastic idea by these two lovely ladies, and am very much looking forward to reading it!

    To my fellow godspouses/godlovers/spiritspouses/consorts/etc, my friends Beth and Jo are doing a book on the topic of godspousery. If you have any questions about the topic that you’d like to see addressed in the book, you can e-mail Jo and ask. I’m personally glad to see this project coming out – I myself considered writing a book on godspousery at one time (and I do address the topic a little bit in my book Walking Between Worlds, but it is not at all a comprehensive view on the subject) but I am adamantly not the right person to write a book on this topic for a lot of reasons (one of which being I am too full of sass and too irreverent and would be tempted to call the book “Spiritfuckers Inc.” or “Dancing With the Devil: The Horizontal Lambada” or something along those lines), so I’m glad people with better people skills are handling this topic. 😛 I’m really looking forward to the book when it comes out, and will be plugging it when it does. 😀

    This is a signal boost for a project I’m pleased is happening (there are multiple books in the works on the topic of sacred marriage, in fact). There is considerable misunderstanding on the topic of sacred marriage within a pagan and polytheist context despite (or hell, perhaps because of) historic and mythic precedent for such expression within our various traditions. This configuration is both a paradigm of relationship and a complex engine of spiritual development that has the potential to create both highly refined and very unexpected and unusual outcomes in one’s private religious life. It is both self-justified (existing for its own sake) and undertaken for reasons beyond the personal.

    No single volume will be able to capture the fullness of this particular spiritual expression because it is a phenomenon being currently practiced and furthered here, today, now. We are learning more and more about it simply because it is a practice emerging and being rediscovered. Though I strongly believe that devotional practices and expressions don’t need to have their value justified, an clear exploration of these topics is valuable to people seeking a greater understanding.

    You have questions? This is a good opportunity to ask them of people who are willing to answer.
