Pagan Events, Trash, and Environmentalism

I just posted a bit about Pagan environmentalism and the connection to Pagan leadership. It was a bit philosophical, so I thought I'd follow up with a more concrete post on specific things you can do as a Pagan leader and event organizer to reduce your use of resources and reduce environmental destruction.

Have you ever been to a Pagan festival or other event where there was a ton of trash left behind at the end? Have you ever been to a Pagan ritual where people were using styrofoam cups, or using plastic plates that just got thrown out? Have you ever been to a Pagan event where the land was left in a far worse condition than when you arrived? Or where there weren't recycling options, or where, despite there being a recycling dumpster, Pagans failed to sort their trash?

    Thanks for bringing this important subject up again, Shauna. From my own experiences and others I have spoken with, I've come to b

Today I continue to honor the gods maligned by the atheists' graveyard.  Medeina is deity number 30 from that list and is a Lithuanian forest goddess.  I could not find out much about her so a short prayer is my offering.

ALL the Canadian Pagan Festivals!

It seems that festival season is upon us once again, and lots of other folks are listing Pagan festivals you can go to (thanks Jason Mankey and Heather Greene)!  Both of them mentioned some of the stuff going on up here north of the 49th Parallel, and I would like to thank them for that!  But this blog is about Canadian Paganism, so I'm giving you a list of ALL the Canadian Pagan festivals I know about, whether I've been there or not.  Contrary to popular belief there's lots going on and not all of it is in Ontario or Alberta!  If you know of a Canadian Pagan festival I'm missing, please let me know in the comments and I'll be happy to add it to the list, no matter how small.  Share the list around!

As you can see, I'm not committed to anything this year except Gaia Gathering, which is already passed. So if anyone wanted me to come . . . Just sayin'. ;)

Lover Meets Beloved

Step into the place of the lover, and the beloved will turn up. The Lover is here for you, has been here all along. Step into the place of the Beloved and sense Earth from this position. Gaia. She's here. She's more than ready to be your Lover. Open up to what starts happening in your life- today- as you step into this. Feel your cells responding. Feel your energy. So much wonder, magic and love right here, right now!

It becomes easier when you allow yourself to be the Beloved of Gaia first. You don't need to make the first move. Gaia is inviting you through every tree, every bird song, every flower. Will you stop and see? Allow your breath to quicken and your heart to miss a beat? Step into the place of the lover, and the beloved will turn up.

Pagan News Beagle: Faithful Friday, May 22

Change is inevitable. How we deal with it, however is another matter. This week's article of Faithful Friday takes a look at how the tapestry of religion is changing around the world, from the pluralization of religion in America to the rise of Hindu nationalism in India. Will tomorrow's religious landscape look the same as today's? If that's a question you think is worth asking, read on.

Fire the Tarot

It's been awhile since I've been here, and that's because things have been... mutable. I've decided to try to re-enter (because Mercury retrograde is always a good time to go back to something that's been previously started, right?) working with clay again. I believe I mentioned it previously, in my last article. I've been doing a lot of reflecting since then. 

You see, Tarot is such a part of my life that it is hard for me to isolate things. I see the cards in shapes throughout the day. I think about what card would represent what activity I'm doing at the time. I use the Tarot as a guide to activities, as a focal point for my art, and more. Between astrology (to which I've also returned over the last year), runes, stones, and the tarot, my life is pretty full of amazing shapes, themes and designs.
