“Kanagara: The permaculture-infused Japanese mythology of Ryan Hobbs”

Interview by Willi Paul Studio /

- excerpt -

Willi - Are you creating new rituals and traditions or modifying old ones?

Ryan - A little of both actually. My rites are simplified versions of older ones. The Grain God receives firstfruits of a new harvest, and then we eat it because waste is an act that leads to impurity. But the prayers are typically old ones repeated anew. I intend to hold festivals in the future to thank the Gods and our ancestors for the bounty we receive and for good health and happiness. These would be simple affairs of feasting, telling stories, and making offerings and prayers. In this regard, I draw from my family history and celebrations as well as from past history of my Norse ancestors who held such feasts. In all such things, I prefer simplicity over pomp.
