Thinking About – Where the Seasons Begin and End

I thought I'd open a can of worms today. Throw a hot potato in. You know, stir it up a bit. I don't normally go there but I think, in truth, there is no one correct answer to this so it really doesn't matter in the end

Thinking About – Doing Druidry/Being a Druid

When I put out the question to readers of the blog what would be the topics you would like me to write about it became obvious that this one was extremely popular. How you fit Druidic practices into daily life. This is a very important question and

Thinking About – Lughnasadh

Lughnasadh (aka Lammas) is one of the 8 festivals that are held within the modern Pagan Wheel of the Year. It marks the first harvest - that being the wheat and barley within the fields that has grown from the green of the Summer Solstice, to the

Thinking About – What and where is Home?

In a global world I'm an Earthling, a human being living upon a blue planet spinning through space. One of about 7.6 billion people who inhabit this wondrous place. I also live in Europe along with around 743 million other people. I live in Great Britain -

Thinking About – There is no separation, you are part of me

Firstly, let me wish you a happy and blessed Solstice. It may be that, like me, you are gazing at a clear blue sky here in the northern hemisphere noticing the clarity of the light on the day of the Summer Solstice. Or maybe you are heading

Thinking About – Belief and Experience

I was on a panel at the recent Pagan Federation Devon and Cornwall conference and said something that a number of people have mentioned to me since, so I thought maybe a blog article on it would be of value. Over the years I've heard some Pagans

Thinking About – What art will we leave behind?

Thinking About – Happiness and Meaning

For a number of years in the early 2000s I read hundreds of self-help books. Literally hundreds. I trained as a Stress Consultant, and qualified as an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioner. I even considered training to be a therapist and councillor. But in truth, looking back

Thinking About – A Moment that changed Modern Paganism

When the Pagan community comes together with an open heart amazing things can happen. I have witnessed it at the OBOD Summer and Winter Gatherings in Glastonbury each year, at many Pagan gatherings around the world, and I felt it again this past weekend at the Pagan

Thinking About – Gratitude

I'm currently reading Rupert Sheldrake's Science and Spiritual Practices and one of things I'll be doing more here on the blog is book and music reviews, so expect a full review in the next couple of weeks. In the mean time the book has inspired me to
