How Sexual Was Your Beltane?

Many of us in Pagandom participate in several groups/circles/covens etc. My preference has always been to be a part of a small, intimate group (sometimes a full-fledged “coven,” sometimes not) along with a larger, more open circle. The small group becomes my place for serious work and instruction, and hopefully lives up to the idea [Read More...]

Making Light: Gods Bless Tennessee

TN was also the sit0000e of the famous 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, in which evolution VS. creation in curriculum was debated in open court.

Just this week, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, chose not to veto the so-called “Monkey Bill” that requires science teachers to “teach the controversy” about scientific theories such as evolution and climate change. The Wild Hunt has excellent coverage here. Some of what I have to say is repeated in the comments there, but I thought [Read More...]

Star Foster over on the Pantheon blog got me thinking with her two recent articles on  the feasibility of Pagan temples in the modern age.  ( first article : second article ).  Doing something like this would be a considerable undertaking by any group of Pagans in the community.

I’m a Facebooker, it’s a problem, and I know this.  I probably check it ten times a day, usually for just a couple of minutes, but sometimes my sessions run a little longer.  I try hard not to be obscene about it, I’m not a “friend collector” randomly friending people just because they happen to [Read More...]

Paganavebury

As I am nearing the end of my third degree studies, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into what it means to be a High Priest. What the roles and responsibilities that come with assuming this mantle are. The result? A series of questions for leaders to constantly ask themselves. Who do we serve? [Read More...]

Druid Thoughts: In Search of a Feminist Goddess

The Golden Bough by Jeroen van Valkenburg

I should begin by explaining that I am not a Wiccan, but have had close contact with Wiccans and the wider pagan community for more than a decade. Wiccans and those who draw heavily on them for inspiration, still represent the majority of pagans. In my experience, many folk who identify as ‘eclectic’ or ‘on [Read More...]

Leaving a Legacy

800px-Old_books_-_old_textures

In Paganism honoring the legacy left to you by those who come before you is important. The legacy they impart to you while they are alive and after they pass on is a great one, and one that needs to be treated with honor and humility. As Paganism  grows older and matures we will need [Read More...]
