A “Valiant Attempt” to Bridge the Gap Between Pagans and Environmentalists

CNS-Bridge (1000x667)

“It is clear that Paganism and environmentalism are close allies in building a more sustainable future for the planet. It’s as if the two groups speak different languages, and “A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment” is a valiant attempt to appeal to both Pagans and environmentalists at once, to identify common ground and common cause.” [Read more...]

619-00821308

I’m brand new at environmental activism.  One thing I have learned over the past year is that it is easy to get discouraged.  There’s four myths that I think contribute to this.  They can affect anyone who is environmentally active, but they especially affect those new to earth activism.  And so I want to rebut [Read More...]

If It Doesn’t Help Me Save This World, I Don’t Want Your Polytheist Revolution

anotherearth-still1

It has become more clear to me than ever why I am opposed to the growth of a certain kind of Polytheism — other-worldly Polytheism — within the Pagan Umbrella.

Ha, Jon Stewart! Pagans can organize!

jon-stewart

I’ve heard “herding cats” analogies more times than I care to count, but the fact is that we can organize. We don’t need to all be of one mind or agreeing on every point in order to speak in harmony. Just as we attune ourselves to nature and the cycles of the Earth, we can “attune” to one another, temporarily setting aside our egos and prioritizing our individual disagreements, when a collective voice is urgently needed, as it is now. And “A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment” is proof of that. [Read more...]
