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

Tales from the Road – Fingers, Horns, Bras and Beer

Well, it's been a while... I've just got back home from a two week tour on the European mainland. Starting with 5 days in the Czech Republic at the BMWC camp, then onto Vienna for a concert there, and finally to the Netherlands for the OBOD International

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

Story of the Song – Merlin am I

There are certain folk from the mythology of this little island that fill my heart. Taliesin, Arthur, Gwydion, Rhiannon to name just a few. Another is the figure of Merlin. I guess my first encounter with Merlin was in Disney's Sword in the Stone back when I

Story of the Song – The Cauldron Born

Many of us will remember that moment. We might have been walking through a woodland, standing on the top of a hill or mountain, seated beside a waterfall, or maybe simply walking in the centre of the city, but something changes. It can be like a second

Thinking About – What do people want from their Paganism?

Is/has what people want from their Paganism changing? If I look back to when I first began to explore my spiritual path it was magic I was looking for. I guess it came from my love of the paranormal and the occult as a teenager. So when

I open to the Dark Half of the Year

There are some who see Samhain as the beginning of Winter, just as they see Lughnasadh as the beginning of Autumn, but that has never worked for me. To me the Solstices and Equinoxes mark the very beginning of the associated season, with the Fire Festivals the

Thinking About – Samhain

"It's the most wonderful time of the year..." The voice sings during the Christmas TV advert I will doubtless see this coming week, but I know for many of my friends this is actually their favourite time. It's not mine, but I totally get why it is
