Pagan News Beagle: Watery Wednesday, December 16

Last minute ideas for Yuletide gifts arrive. A new Pagan community center opens in Santa Cruz. And a Polish activist is memorialized. It's Watery Wednesday, our weekly segment on news about the Pagan community from around the world! All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

Still looking for Yule gifts? Online Pagan journal The Wild Hunt has you covered if you are. You can find their detailed list of gift ideas here.

If you live in California you might be interesting in checking out a new community center that just opened up in Santa Cruz. The Santa Cruz Sentinel covers the opening of the Academy of Arcana, headed by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart and Anne Duther.

What does a Pagan theology look like? Heathen writer Galina Krasskova offers one attempt at composing a theological framework for her religion here.

Still in need of more gift ideas? If The Wild Hunt's list wasn't good enough, Patheos also has a list here you can check out.

Polish activist and wildlife enthusiast Simona Kossak is memorialized in a new book, The Extraordinary Life of Simona Kossak, which details her life in the remote woods of Poland and activism on behalf of the natural world. You can read a review of the book here, at

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
