Willamette Earth Based Spirituality Message Board › Local author and polytheist H. Jeremiah Lewis aka Sannion
Local author and polytheist H. Jeremiah Lewis will be reading selections from his latest book Ecstatic: For Dionysos at Metamorphosis Spirit on November 11th.Ecstatic is a unique collection of poetry, essays, short fiction and devotional writing honoring Dionysos (or Bacchus) – the ancient Greek god of wine, women, madness, drama and vegetation, among much else.
Afterwards there will be an open discussion and Mr. Lewis will field questions from the audience about the history, contemporary worship and paradoxical nature of this most fascinating of deities. Copies of Ecstatic will be available for purchase and can be personally signed by the author. There will also be complimentary refreshments served.
So come with a healthy appetite and a hunger to learn more about Dionysos, whom scholar Walter Otto described as “god of ecstasy and terror, of wildness and of the most blessed deliverance.”
