A Light in the Darkness: The Light Personal Names Shed on Ancient Paganism
Date: 2011-12-19   By: K.M. Sheard
Names. We all have them. They are so integral to our society that few people ever pause to reflect on their cultural significance and what they reveal about our way of life. But even today, naming practices vary considerably across the world. And the naming practices of our ancestors were equally diverse. And, what’s more, they offer us a unique window through which to glimpse their lives, how they lived, and what they believed. What do the names of our Pagan predecessors reveal about their way of lif? K.M. Sheard, author of Llewellyn's Complete Book of Names, explains.
The Christian Witch Wheel of the Year
Date: 2010-07-05   By: Adelina St. Clair
The merging of Christianity and Paganism is a relatively new concept, one rarely talked about and one that stirs much controversy. As more and more people speak out about their love of both Christ and of the Goddess, it becomes apparent that the practice of Christian Witchcraft is no myth.

The feast days of the Christian and Wiccan calendars are closely linked both in date and meaning, which gives the Christian Witch the greatest of gifts: a way to honor her Christian tradition in the light of a Pagan practice. Adelina St. Clair, author of The Path of a Christian Witch, offers a little bit of history on the development of the feasts that Pagans and Christians both share and how these celebrations can become the focal point of a beautiful and loving spiritual practice.

Date: 2012-12-17   By: Lupa
Any animal species that has ever existed has a totem, and we're not limited to just one animal totem. But how do we find our animal totem(s)? What if dreaming or guided meditation don't work? Lupa, author of New Paths to Animal Totems, provides three ways to find your animal totem.

Today's world offers us many opportunities to create and live in stress; even though it has been many thousands of years since we have had to fear attack from wild animals, modern man has his fight-or-flight system turned on most days, and with no idea how to turn it off. Work, relationships, schedules, kids, media, and much more assist in... read this article
