How many here are syncretic?

Syncretism is the syncretization or blending of different traditions for example I am a syncretist of Rodnovery(Slavic Neo-Pagan) and Heathenry(Germanic Neo-Pagan) so I am curious,

How many people here are syncretic?

If you are not syncretic what do you think of it?

That’s fine, since variety is the spice of life. I guess a lot of people are syncretic. We search through the doctrines and belief systems, and practice what suits us.

I am so glad that you provided a definition for syncretism as the "blending of different traditions". Without your definition, I would have had to look up the word.

I am a blend of so many traditions (I take the best from each tradition) that it would be difficult to enumerate them all.

Instead of choosing a path
Why not let the path choose us

That way, our receptivity is virgin

In this day and age we are all probably syncretic, even when we think we are following a traditional path, there are probably little things that have been added or deleted or replaced with something else along the way of taking on that path.
