Embracing the Divine Androgyne, by Sean-Thomas Gunnell with Many Paths CUUPS: The Triple Goddess and the Two-fold God have been part of the Pagan scene since the mid-twentieth century. But not all of us relate to these forms and seek to find aspects of Spirit with whom we can identify. Come join as we talk about personalities and aspects of the Divine that go beyond the hetero designation and are found all over the gender spectrum. We will discuss why these deities are important in the modern age, how they have always been with us, and how one coven sought to incorporate a third-gender deity into their practice and worship.
