Are you one of the tens (hundreds?) of thousands of Pagans who did not attend Pantheacon? If so, the Wild Hunt has a helpful post to bring you up to speed. "What is Pantheacon?"

Pagan News Beagle Fiery Tuesday Feb 24

On Fiery Tuesdays the Pagan News Beagle highlights stories of activism as they affect Pagan culture. Today we highlight the recent Pantheacon conference, and on reactions to a specific incident that highlighted ongoing concerns over racism in our communities.

This year's Pantheacon festival had many wonderful events (covered by many PaganSquare bloggers) and one very notable controversy. This blog post describes the core of the controversy, (and is also the location of an apology by the authors of the document in question.)

PaganNewsBeagle Earthy Thursday Feb 12

Today's Earthy Thursday post supports solutions and inspirations for living. New cultural ideas including "forest bathing" from Japan; eco-art in the woods; saving Monarchs and getting paid for it; salt-water friendly potatoes and a multi-generational organic dairy.

Are you just "done in" with the Thanksgiving-until-Valentine's Day slog of commercial holidays? Maybe one of these ideas -- cultural concepts from outside North American culture -- will inspire you instead.

PaganNewsBeagle Fiery Tuesday Jan 27

Today's Pagan News Beagle concentrates on politics, activism, and how our Pagan culture connects (or doesn't) to issues of social justice. SCOTUS case on religious attire at work; civil marriage under attack; the Covenant of the Goddess under fire (from Pagans); are the gods moral?; how do we juggle social justice and our Pagan faiths?

US Supreme Court already decided one religious rights case this year. Another case pits Abercrombie & Fitch against the EEOC on a case involving the right to wear religiously-significant attire at the workplace.

PaganNewsBeagle Faithful Friday Jan 23

In today's Faithful Friday post, the Beagle brings you stories from many faith traditions. Next Monday, Jan 26, has been dubbed "Blue Monday" and is supposedly the most depressing day of the year, so in this Beagle installment we concentrate on the interaction of mental health and religion, especially in Paganism.

The Wild Hunt featured this well-written article on Paganism and depression last week, including perspectives from a wide variety of Pagan therapists, activists, and advocates.
