What is Wyldwood?

Wyldwood is first and foremost a collection and celebration of traditional lore, customs and practices which herald from pre-Christian roots.

We feel that it is important to the human spirit to have a sense of belonging, and pride in our ancestry, but never to the exclusion of others.

My name is Rene and together with my lovely wife Antoinette we are running several shows here in Wyldwood Radio and help contacting bands for the station.

I am living living in The Netherlands,  and to pay for my hobby’s I am a full time Sysadmin. We have no children, but we do have a cat and lots of bats 😉

I ran into the pagan scene some years ago. When visiting the Pagan music festival Castlefest, and (we) felt surprisingly fast at home and fitted right in. I always knew i was somewhat different than the “normal” people around me. But never gave it any thought. The other “pagans” around me really opened my eyes. Being Pagan minded really helps me to see things in perspective. Being a Pagan for me is  collecting ideas and practises i see around me. And the ones i like i will add to my own little world. 😉  But always with nature in mind.

Other interests are Gaming, Watching movies, listening to music and going to concerts and (pagan) festivals as often as my wallet allows.

For the future, i am a person that does not likes to plan ahead. I live now and what the future brings i will deal with it when it arrives 😉


I am Antoinette and live in the Netherlands with my husband Rene.

My regular job is working at a secondary school for biology. There I prepare the experiments from the beginning to the end.

In my spare time I give gymnastics and acrobatic gymnastics. Just a few hours a week. Another hobby is bats. From searching for bats for organisations as help them. If they are wounded or too young to live on their own. In the end I want to see as much as possible flying again in the wild. The batcare is a small but official organisation. With volunteers we manage to rescue as much as possible animals.

And if there is time left, I like to draw. Trying out new things and of course keep practising the old technics.

Wyldwood is at this moment so new for me, that I don’t know what I can do and what I will do for it. Time will see. At least I can enjoy the music.

What is Paganism? A religion, a spirituality, an alternative belief system, nature worship? You can find support for all these definitions (and many more) in dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and text books of religion, but subscribe to any one and the truth will evade you. Above all Paganism is a creative pursuit, an encounter with reality, an exploration of meaning and an expression of the soul. Druids, Heathens, Wiccans and others, all contribute their insights and literary riches to the Pagan tradition. Moon Books invites you to begin or to deepen your own encounter, right here, right now. www.moon-books.net
