The gods are still around: that’s the refrain that sounds throughout each of these stories. Although the roots of the faith stretch back to ancient Greece, Hellenismos continues to grow and adapt, offering inspiration and answers to the perplexing questions of life’s mysteries for many individuals today.

And that is what these stories are about – what it’s like to practice Hellenismos today. What it feels like to recognize the presence of the gods around you. To discover the mystery of the divine, the power of love, the joy of life, the pangs of grief, the struggle with doubt, the loneliness that comes with belonging to a minority faith.

You can read all about ancient Greek religion in hundreds of academic tomes – but none of them will tell you what it’s really like, from the inside. The only way to do that is to hear our stories, in our own words. Stories of gods and mortals.
