The Single Most Important Thing That You Can Do to Survive the Pandemic with Your Spiritual Life Intact

Is your spiritual life seeming a little flat lately?

Do your daily observances feel stale?

Zoom “rituals” don't quite do it for you?

Are you deeply missing festivals, the gatherings of the tribe that would usually be happening round about now?

Yeah, me too. Let me hasten to add that it isn't this way just for pagans. Anyone with any kind of spiritual life is feeling the same.

But there is a way to survive this.

Get out into “Nature.”

“Nature,” of course, is a conceptually problematic term, so—for the purposes of this post—let me define it here as “the non-human world.”

Get out of the city. Go to the woods, the hills, the river. Go join your life—for a while—to the life of the greater world.

Good pagan, go forth and walk with the gods.

I promise, you will come back renewed.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
