Trey Justice's Profile...
Raised a devout Christian from birth, began wandering away and asking questions at the age of 17. Serious break with Christianity in 1990-91.
Began studying Wicca, Asatru and other Relgious Paths in 1989, I still do study all religions as they all give reflection and some form of wisdom. The focus from the beginning was the God/desses of my ancestors.
Began self-initiation/practice in 1993 for Celtic/Teutonic neo-paganism.
Began earnest walking of my path on 1995, Celtic/Teutonic Solitaire. That is, "openly paracticing my faith and not hiding it from friends and a few family members.
1999- Began attending group rituals and Sabbats. Joined study groups, never joined a coven.
1999-Current + - Making contacts, joining online groups, hooking up with like minded fellows.
2002- Taught a student for a year and a day in Wicca with an emphasis on Celtic and Asatru. She did great and is following her path as a Solitaire.
Dec. 2005- Began revamping the Green Circle (a study group I joined in 1999) to start our study group again and to help others in our community network and learn, know of each other.
Was once a current chair of the Membership Committee for the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPs) based out of the Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church (HVUUC) . Now I'm just a regular member.
Over time I have become dillusioned with "Wicca" and see it as a "one-size fits all" form of neo-Paganism. I have drawn closer and closer to the Gods and Goddesses of my ancestors and now consider myself a Heathen. I follow Asatru but also study Celtic mythology- the Celts are my ancestors too.
I believe in continuing studies (all religions) , religious history (all) , military history, ongoing practice/living in your faith, and an open mind to other thoughts, belief systems, and philosophy. I find this in tune with Odin- he sacrificed to gain knowledge and I do the same. I recommend anything written by Ronald Hutton, The Troth, the late Alan Watts and for neo-paganism/Wicca, the late Scott Cunningham.
I am willing to help create a Kindred in my area. I think that Kindreds are sacred and must be handled with care, commitment and wisdom and must embrace the Thews of our ancestors. If I were to join an Kindred or help create one myself I would expect members to follow the Thews, continue to study and expand their knowledge, and to be committed to Asatru, the Kindred and the Asatru/Heathen community as well. "Wannabees" and "flighty" people need not apply (in my book) .
Bachelor of Science (Political Science/Sociology) , 1992 East Tennessee State University
Master of City Management, 1997 East Tennessee State University
Continuing Studies (university level) - 18 semester hours in Japanese
Enlisted in the TN Army National Guard in 1988, commissioned as an officer in 1992, spent my time at various locations throughout America (active duty and national guard duty) , fought in a 20 month active duty tour for Operation Iraqi Freedom III (2004-2005) , "I'm back from Iraq, baby!" (BIG quote from Dec. 2005) . Retired from the Army and TN Army National Guard in Dec. 2007.
If you're a Heathen/Asaturar and a combat vet, feel free to email me for anything.
If you live near the Tri-Cities area of TN/VA, and you are looking to meet other like minded folks or would like to continue your studies with others or just need help contacting someone, let me know, I know people and am a member of The Green Circle (no longer on witchvox.com) and am creating an Asatru study group which may form the nucleus of a Kindred. The email address for The Green Circle is: firstname.lastname@example.org (We've been together since the 90s, members have moved far away and kept their Green Circles going in Portland, OR) . For Asatru studies and kinship, contact me directly please.
I'm here to help those on the path get connected/re-connected to others in our community. My email address is: email@example.com if you don't want to email me via witchvox or email me on Facebook (Trey Justice) .
I stand by my words and actions.
