Meet a Steward
Marybeth is a devotional polytheist whose spiritual practices emphasize honoring her deities, mysticism, contemplation, and nature reverence. She has been a practicing Pagan of some kind or another since about 2005. She has a near-obsessive love of books, and a strong passion for earth-based skills that immerse her in nature and allow her to live a little more lightly on the earth, including foraging, gardening, and various crafts like spinning, weaving, knitting, and natural dyeing.
Contact Juno and Caitlin via Meetup or Discord if you have something you would like to share with the community and we will include it in the next newsletter.
