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 – Samhain, Bones and the Ancestors

Samhain I still find it amazing how quickly after the Autumn Equinox the season takes hold. Maybe it's the angle of the Sun to the Earth but the shade of light blends with a touch of gold, whereas the Summer sunshine, to my eyes at least, sparkles

Y Mabinogi – The Blessing of Two Crows

Almost exactly a year ago I finished recording my last album Y Mabinogi - The First Branch. If you've heard it you'll know it was quite a different undertaking from my previous albums, and was both the culmination of one, and the beginning, of what would be

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

Do not seek to walk in the footsteps of the people of old…

At the end of April I wrote this post and told of a ritual me and Cerri participated in as part of our holiday. I did say that the ritual itself was worthy of its own article, but then my life was overtaken by the work on

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?

This article really continues the theme set by a recent post about a moment that changed modern Paganism. If the publication of Triumph of the Moon gave modern Pagans the permission to accept that our path was relatively new, that the stories we had been told of

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
