Responsible Pagan Sex? Never Mind!

Ah, the subject of sex. I’m reminded of Emily Litella, the dear, sweet, hard of hearing “rebuttal” character on Saturday Night Live played by Gilda Radner. “What’s all this I hear about sax and violins on television?” poor Emily pondered, much to the obvious chagrin of “Weekend Update” host, Jane Curtin. “That’s sex and violence [Read More...]

Sexuality Among Pagans

Our Public Square topic on Patheos is is Sexuality. There’s an old joke that no matter how lofty a Pagan discussion begins, it always ends talking about food and sex! We’re a sensual, earthy people and sex is an important energy for all living things. Please check out the articles above and the upcoming blog [Read More...]

Thoughts On Sin

I have to admit this is a private topic of wondrous amusement to me, often causing me to bait Christians that from their replies I might glean insight into their mind. Every response adds to my research and aids my reflection of human nature, informing the way religion manipulates ordinary people in their everyday life. [Read More...]

The Dilemma of Alex Mar or How Long Shall We Be Afraid?

I am on pins and needles waiting for a chance to see Alex Mar’s documentary “American Mystic”. It features Native American, Spiritualist and Pagan mystics searching for the divine.

Spells Explained

Many non Pagans curiously ask me, “Do you cast spells?” To which replied “All the time.” Then they ask me “How can you believe in them and have faith that they will work.” To which I reply “Do you believe in prayer?” Personally I perceive prayer, ritual and spellcasting, as ways that the living, whilst [Read More...]

Sacred Endings

Candle lit, incense wafting, salt blessed and anointed in oil I step into the bath. Herbal flowers scent the water and steam rises languorously. I meditate on things I’ve put behind me, things in my past, and bid them to stay there. I want room for fresh beginnings and don’t desire to be visited by [Read More...]

Miracles and Magic

I recently reconnected with an old friend of mine. As we were talking, she posed an interesting question. She asked if I thought that, as Pagans, it was required that we believe in miracles, in the sense that things happen supernaturally and without explanation. The answer is a qualified “no.” I think I do need [Read More...]

Death-This Witch’s Perspective

Death when it visits is traumatic regardless of one’s chosen religion, however the way it resonates within the life of individuals is very much influenced by their faith and beliefs therein. Hence to venture comment with any degree of empathy is as difficult as commenting about pain, for one person simply cannot fathom anothers suffering. [Read More...]
