About Us

Joyce and River live in Missouri, where they are active in teaching and networking on both the local and national level. They are frequently interviewed about Paganism for television, radio, newspapers and magazines. They appear as guest speakers at universities, high schools, and Christian churches.

Joyce and River are the authors of Paganism: An Introduction to Earth-Centered Religions, and Pagan Spirituality: A Guide to Personal Transformation, both published by Llewellyn.

Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) has adopted their introductory book as a text for an adult religious education course on earth religions. Several universities use their writings as text or required reading for both graduate and undergraduate religious studies classes.

Joyce and River helped found the Council for Alternative Spiritual Traditions (CAST), which hosted public Pagan events in the Midwest, including the region’s largest free festival, the St. Louis Pagan Picnic. The Picnic continues to attract more than 2,000 each year.

River and Joyce also were annual participants in Diana’s Grove Mystery School, a program for spiritual, personal and leadership development. In 2007 River joined the staff of Diana’s Grove Mystery School and now helps facilitate events there.

This year at Diana’s Grove, River and Joyce will be facilitating a new weekend retreat focusing on concepts of group dynamics and how they can influence communities, especially spiritual communities. This event was called:

Evolving Spirituality: A Cultural Understanding
