Almost all pantheons have divinities or supernatural beings who may be regarded as on the dark side and who primarily deal with sickness and death. In the North, we have Odin and the valkyries, as well as some of the elves, vettir, and the Underjordiske (Under-Earth Ones). Heading south, there are Charun, Pluto, Apollo, various demons, Set, and more. Christianity has Satan/Lucifer and a legion of various devils; Islam has Shaitan and Iblis. Judaism seems to have demons (lower case d) floating around, but no major Dark gods or goddesses. Tibet, China, Japan, India, and Africa have Dark Ones, as do the cultures in the New World. In this panel, we shall explore the nature of these Dark Ones, contrasting and comparing their attributes.
Please join Tchipakkan and Chris Kimball on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, 8-26-15, 8-9 p.m. est.
New to CTCW, but well known in the Connecticut Pagan Community, especially fans of CWPN Harvest Gathering, Chris Kimball will join Tchipakkan on the New Normal.
At the conference Chris will be presenting workshops on the heathen background to the Grimm fairy tales, how and why people can connect with the spirit of the forests, and the spirits that are even older than the gods. We will probably cover these subjects, and other topics as well.
Please call in with any stories or questions: 619-639-4606
