Hi everybody. I was just given an opportunity to raise awareness of our community on the podcast Spiritual Wisdom with Jay Forrest. Jay is a published author, experienced podcaster, ex-pastor, and certified Humanist minister and meditation instructor – in short, an eminently interesting guy. I highly recommend you check out his podcast.
Also, FYI the next session of the course mentioned in the episode – which to my knowledge is the only online course designed specifically for naturalists, including Naturalistic Pagans – begins this March on the 6th.
Please share, like, and tweet this podcast episode widely. The more we publicly raise awareness of our community, the more we all reap the benefits. Thank you!

B. T. Newberg: Since the year 2000, B. T. has been practicing meditation and ritual from a naturalistic perspective. He currently volunteers as Education Director for the Spiritual Naturalist Society, where he created and now teaches an online course in naturalistic spirituality (including Naturalistic Paganism!). His writings can also be found at Patheos and Pagan Square, as well as right here at HP.
Professionally, he teaches English as a Second Language, and hopes to begin a PhD program in the psychology of religion soon. After living in Minnesota, England, Malaysia, Japan, and South Korea, he currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with his wife and cat.
After founding HumanisticPaganism.com in 2011 and serving as managing editor till 2013, he now serves as advising editor, and feels blessed to be a part of this community.
I enjoyed this, especially your comments about what a pagan might take from Homer or Buddhism that might be different from what a humanist or Buddhist might take.
