From Brother Chase: I will be getting started with another round of apprenticeships very soon. If you are interested, please fill out the questionnaire at the link below, and I will be sending out emails to those who have done so at the end of this week.
A few details – Brother Sphinx and I will be co-teaching this class, which will be done long-distance via video chat (most likely Skype or Google Hangout). Cost is on a sliding scale of $30-50 per class, with one class every two weeks. More details will be given during the first class, which is an orientation class. Looking forward to hearing from people!

In August 2016, the Unnamed Path signed onto the Pagan Statement of Solidarity with Standing Rock –
As Winter sets in, with some Water Protectors heading home while others brace for the season, we reaffirm our solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the words expressed in the Pagan Statement of Solidarity.
We encourage everyone, as they are called, to work on this important issue as well as the numerous similar issues they face in their communities.
Stone and Stang 2016 was a great success this year. We dove deep into our spirituality and also danced under the stars.
Mark your calendars for October 12 – 15, 2018 for the next Stone and Stang!
Friends, Brothers, and Allies,
John Ravenmoon, an initiate of the Unnamed Path was diagnosed with cancer a year ago. He has gone through treatment, but recently it was found that the cancer has spread to his lung. Within the last 2 weeks, John’s health put him in the hospital and now he and his husband Michael are facing enormous financial strain. Please help our dear brother with a donation so that Michael’s energy and focus can be on being by John’s side during this critical period.
Thank you for any amount you are able to give.
The Brothers of the Unnamed Path are excited to unveil the return of Stone and Stang, a spiritual gathering for Men Who Love Men. Come join us for a long weekend of empowering, participant-led presentations, camaraderie, and relaxation. Stone and Stang will convene from Friday October 7 to Monday October 10, 2016 in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains of Northern California.
This year’s theme is GUARDIANS OF THE GATES: Bridging the Physical and Spiritual Worlds, centering around the core of shamanism, the ability to reach into the spiritual world and bring lore and magic into the physical world. As Men Who Love Men, we have our own unique gifts we bring to this plane and to shamanic practice.
Registration and Presentation Submissions are expected to open on April 15, 2016. Stay tuned here or visit stoneandstang.com for additional information.
The Unnamed Path Brotherhood is outraged at the social injustice propagated against those in the Black Community in America. Further, the lack of justice in the cases where clear injustice has been done.
It is also clear that the insidious narratives about racial minorities in America that have led to this are alive and well. The Brotherhood stands in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter in order to uproot these narratives from ourselves and from our society.
Those in power will learn to use it with compassion or they will be replaced with those who will. There will be conversation; we will speak to this, we will remember. Our Ancestors and our Gods have stirred and will not rest until actions are taken.

Once again, we are hosting a spiritual gathering for men-who-love-men called Stone and Stang, this time in sunny Northern California. This event, while hosted by the brothers of the Unnamed Path, is open to men-who-love-men of all pagan and alternative spiritual paths. We want this event to be about YOU, not us, and we encourage each of you to submit ideas for presentations, workshops, rituals and performances, that we might all grown and enrich our spiritual lives together.

January 14th, 2014 was a day that none of us could have ever imagined nor will it be a day we will ever forget. Hyperion was our friend, brother, mentor, and teacher and his life was a shining example to all who knew him. He was the embodiment of what is possible through continued dedication to spiritual practice. He lived his life fearlessly, authentically and with a formidable passion for all that he did.
Hyperion has left a legacy and although nobody can replace him, we The Brotherhood recognize that we have a calling to continue this legacy and reach out to other Men-Who-Love-Men through the teachings of the Unnamed Path. His vision has become our vision and will continue to flourish despite his recent transition.
This path WILL continue for Hyperion and for our selves. Classes are continuously forming for Men-Who-Love-Men seeking apprenticeships that lead to initiation by wonderful teachers who have gone through teacher training under his loving and knowledgeable guidance.
Through our continued work, it is our hope that other lives are touched and transformed just as our lives have been and continue to be. So it is with a renewed vigor that we charge forth to the future. The torch has been passed and the flame continues to burn.
