STICKY: Common Questions for Polytheist Monastics
« on: February 28, 2019, 12:11:12 PM »
This is a short starter list of common questions I've received on polytheist monasticism. Feel free to start a thread addressing any of them, or add your own.

* Are polytheist monastics celibate?
* What kind of monastic vows do you take, if any?
* Do polytheist monastic orders have a monastic Rule, and if so, what is it?
* What does discipline mean in a polytheist-animist monastic context?
* Does your religious order practice obedience?
* Do you practice asceticism? What does that mean for you?
* What preexisting forms of monasticism are you most inspired by for your own practice?   
* How did you know you were called to become a nun or monk?
* I want to establish a monastery in my tradition. Where do I start?
