B. T. Newberg
B. T. Newberg founded HumanisticPaganism.com in 2011, and served as managing editor till 2013. His writings on naturalistic spirituality can be found at Patheos, Pagan Square, the Spiritual Naturalist Society, as well as right here on HP.
Since the year 2000, he has been practicing meditation and ritual from a naturalistic perspective. After leaving the Lutheranism of his raising, he experimented with Agnosticism, Buddhism, Contemporary Paganism, and Humanism. Currently he combines the latter two into a dynamic path embracing both science and myth.
In 2009, he completed a 365-day challenge recorded at One Good Deed Per Day. As a Pagan, he has published frequently at The Witch’s Voice as well as Oak Leaves and the podcast Tribeways, and has written a book on the ritual order of Druid organization Ar nDriocht Fein called Ancient Symbols, Modern Rites. He headed the Google Group Polytheist Charity, and organized the international interfaith event The Genocide Prevention Ritual. Currently, he is working with the Spiritual Naturalist Society to develop an online educational course on Spiritual Naturalism (of which Humanistic Paganism can be considered one variety).
Professionally, he teaches English as a Second Language. He also researches the relation between religion, psychology, and evolution in his spare time, with occasional posts at www.BTNewberg.com.
After living in Minnesota, England, Malaysia, Japan, and South Korea, B. T. Newberg currently resides in St Paul, Minnesota, with his wife and cat.

Join Our Staff
We’re looking for a few individuals to join the staff here at HP. First of all, we’re looking for a Science News editor. There is lots of exciting science being done, and we need someone who can help identify what would be of most interest to Naturalistic Pagans and include it in our content here.
We’re also looking for an HPedia editor who will move the project to a wiki format and then oversee it as it develops through open collaboration with other Naturalistic Pagans.
We’re also looking for an ebook editor who will bring together some of the work we have done here with some new content to produce a marketable product.
If you’re interested in any of these positions, email the managing editor, John Halstead, at humanisticpaganism [at] gmail.com.
