Hyperion, founder of the Unnamed Path, is one of the featured speakers at the 5th Wiccan and Goddess Spirituality Conference in Brazil (through the magic of video conferencing) this Saturday June 15th at 3:30pm Brasilia time!
He will presenting a discussion called “The Magician or the High Priestess – an identity crisis in modern Wicca” where he will explore the bifurcated ancestry of Wicca and how we ultimately need to find our own path that reconciles the need to harmonize with nature (the High Priestess) versus the desire to dominate it (the Magician).
You can learn more about the conference on their website.
Pantheacon is a interdenominational pagan and alternative spirituality convention that takes place every year in San Jose, California at the DoubleTree Hotel.

The Circle of Bones Ritual
Join the Deathwalkers of the Unnamed Path in our holy ceremony to communicate with the Ancestors, to receive assistance and love from the spirits of the dead. Be prepared for an authentic spirit contact ritual including spirit possession of the presiding Deathwalkers. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions for the Ancestors to answer. The Unnamed Path is a shamanic path for Men-who-love-men. Our public rituals are ALWAYS open to all genders and orientations.
This ceremony is not recommended for children under 14 years old. Doors close once event starts.
Date: Sunday Feb. 17, 2013
Time: 10:30pm – 1am
Room: Room 206
Location: The DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, CA.
After our Circle of Bones Ritual, we’ll congregate at the Unnamed Path Hospitality Suite and decompress from our ritual. If the spirits want to continue speaking we’ll give them the space to. If we just want to have a light snack and come down from the high of our ritual we can do that too. Think of it as a second but more low-key party for the weekend, to gather, share feelings, space and get to know us better.
You can always look around the Pantheacon Event for posters advertising our events and our location. Look for our four-square logo to easily find us wherever we may be.

It’s that time of year again. The official apprenticeships for The Unnamed Path are starting in September. This is the official year-long training to learn the Unnamed Path and work toward initiation into our tradition.
The apprenticeship is a journey of self-discovery and relationship building. During the course of your year you’ll build relationships with our Gods and Goddesses, with the Ancestors of Men-who-love-men, with your personal guides and totems, but most importantly with your self. You’ll delve deeply into your own Shadow Self, and learn to connect all the parts of your self into a whole, self-aware individual. It’s about growing your personal power and aligning you with your true path in life.
The apprenticeship consists of 26 classes, held every other week. Classes are $30 to $50 per lesson on a sliding scale according to what you can afford. Lessons are taught on Skype. You’ll need a camera and a headset for your lessons but no membership to skype is necessary.
During the year of apprenticeship you’ll be learning proficiency in the Four Arts of the Unnamed Path: Magic & Prophecy, Deathwalking, Energy Healing and Shamanism. You’ll have regular homework requiring you to actively perform these skills and apply yourself. This is not a casual class – this is a serious apprenticeship. Additionally you’ll be required to attend two in-person workshop weekends during the class with your teacher to learn our techniques hands-on because some things just can’t be taught online.
We have five different class rounds starting up in the next few months. The schedule for class launches is as follows:
September 16th, 2012 – Brother Hyperion (Long Beach, CA)
September 16th, 2012 – Brother Sphinx (Beaumont, TX)
October, 2012 – Brother Chase (Houston, TX)
November, 2012 – Brother Rex (Long Beach, CA)
March, 2013 – Brother Ravenmoon (Sacramento, CA)
All classes will be taught online through Skype but we prefer if you contact the teacher closest to you as it will make travel easier for the in-person workshops when the time comes.
If you are interested in learning the Unnamed Path and working toward initiation, please contact the teacher above that you’d like to study with via email and they will arrange your class schedule with you. Class seating is limited so get in touch soon!
