Episode 19: What does it mean to practice Paganism as a naturalist? How can we reconcile the use of magic and polytheism with a reason-based naturalistic worldview? More importantly, why would we want to? Join us as we explore these and many other fascinating questions about Naturalistic Paganism with our guest, B.T. Newberg. B.T. Newberg is an author, editor, teacher, and husband. Since 2000, he has been practicing meditation and ritual from a naturalistic perspective. Upon leaving the Lutheranism of his raising, he experimented with Agnosticism, Buddhism, Contemporary Paganism, and Humanism. He now blends all these experiences into his life as a Spiritual Naturalist. He founded the community blog HumanisticPaganism.com and is former Education Director for the Spiritual Naturalist Society. B.T. holds a master’s degree in education and teaches English as a Second Language.
