Kai Koumatos's Profile...
Trained in Anthropology and Feminist Studies, I am a public witch, an emotional healer, and a lifelong learner. I am a writer, a photographer, and a long time activist. I braved the world of liberal Christianity to earn a Master's degree in Divinity at the Pacific School of Religion, which was a very rewarding and enlightening experience. I also accidentally became a Buddhist when I was there. I'm an Interfaith Minister now, using the spiritual skills of paganism to provide tarot readings and spiritual direction to people of all faith traditions.
My own craft owes a great debt to the pragmatism of Scott Cunningham (bless his soul) . In the past I have worked primarily with Hindu and Pre-Hellenic / Mediterranean deities. I have incorporate a great deal of Taoism and Shinto into my theology and have been a practicing Zen Buddhist for about five years now. I sharply reject the male/female dualism that is prevalent in pagan communities and instead embrace deities and ritual forms that challenge and blend gender roles and identity.
In the early 2000's, my circle, The Rising Wind, created an online pagan magazine of the same name for a few years. Through my pagan education and adventures, I have pagan activist ties to Starhawk, lovely friends in the Reclaiming community (mostly North Bay these days) , and spent years in circles with Katrina and Eric Rasbold - founders of the CUSP tradition in the Sacramento Area. My earliest pagan education came through the The Mystic Moon in San Diego, run by the irreplaceable Scott Rhodes and Judith Wise Rhodes, whose example of community and craft leadership will forever guide my spiritual path.
