Punk Religion by Nina Lyon

March 9th, 2016 | by niriksha

On 3 March, Faber Social published Uprooted: On the Trail of the Green Man by Nina Lyon, a provocative, wry and searching investigation of the Green Man and our relationship with it today. Having completed the book, Nina here looks back at this ancient, complex symbol, in  the context of ritual and religion. It isn’t a solstice or an equinox, and there is nothing unusual going on with the moon  tonight, and it’s February and cold so there is no strong argument in favour of a bonfire. It is  a Sunday, though, and I have an insistent feeling that we must go for a walk. I feel this with a  religious sort of fervour; if asked to define it further I might say that it is necessary in order  to wake up physically, and that in an animated state it becomes possible to perceive things  more immediately and to think about them more clearly. But there’s a bit more to it than that and I only realised this recently. Over the course of a  conversation with non‐churchgoing friends about family and our religious heritage, every  atheist and agnostic at the table admitted to missing the ritual of church, the introspective  space that was set aside and unlike the rest of daily life. We came out, one by one, as serial  attenders of Christmas carol services: you can love the ritual without necessarily loving the  institution, and its ancient seasonal underpinnings pre‐date the Christian church anyway.  How do we fill that gap now? At some point in the process of writing Uprooted the walk zealotry began. I have dragged my  children, my partner and assorted family and friends on walks that show little concern for  weather or appropriate footwear, are over‐ambitious given time and light considerations,  ...
