11:18 am - Hi and Merry Meet :).. not sure if this is ok to post! please let me know if it's not.

My name is El and I wanted to invite you all to join in a brand new world wide pagan community project.

The Merry Meet!

1:58 am - [Pimping] Peat Moors Visitor Centre to be axed


On the 4th of Feb 2009 the Executive Committee of Somerset County Council resolved to close the Peat Moors Centre at the end of October 2009. The decision is due to be ratified by the full council on 18th February.

The Peat Moors Centre is a renowned 'hands-on' archaeology centre. An area like Glastonbury which is renowned for its prehistoric spiritual connections needs to keep its only attraction that showcases who their ancient inhabitants really were.
While I've never been there, it doesn't look like the kinda place that should be getting closed down any time soon.

Link to the megalithic.co.uk page; scroll down to the bottom of the page to read the comments.

10:54 pm - I hope this is allowed.
mocuirdhgalla Merry Meet!

I have been a solitary for the last 10 years. I occasionally host a ritual, or attend ritual with my friends. I am a mom, and am studying to become a spiritual counselor. I read tarot, and am an empath.

If it is appropriate, I would like to invite everyone to join a new community we started on MySpace about six years ago, called Pagans Against Abuse, the community here is called </a></b></a>pagansfiteabuse .  Our tenant and goal is to bring education to everyone concerning abuse of all sorts.  Including domestic violence, child abuse, animal and religious abuses.  We want to make sure that people understand that domestic violence occurs to men as well as women, and occurs in same sex relationships as well as straight relationships. 

I am also a member of the Cill of the Hearth, and Brighid is my patroness.  I write poetry, fiction and non-fiction and helped to write a pamphlet to help pastors minister to women in their congregations who have been abused.

Bright Blessings

9:06 am - What is 'worship'?

Now, afaic, I don't 'worship' any one, or any thing, however I've just been told that because of my love for Loki, "by giving him the worth you do, you absolutely worship him."

So now I'm wondering, what IS worship? Is it simply loving something/someone (in which case, do I 'worship' my friends and family because I love them), or is there more to it than that?

2:02 am - Sharing

Heritage at Risk is English Heritage's ground-breaking new programme. It seeks to identify the parts of the nation's historic environment that are endangered, and to get something done about them.

The West Midlands' .pdf is making for some interesting reading, so no doubt some of you might be interested in some of the others.

This'll probably get xposted lots btw, so apologies if you see it ten million times. :)

And thanks to Halla for sharing in the first place.

Feel free to share your thoughts on the issue. *smile*

9:34 pm - Some advice please...

Hi there, I'm The Druidess, I've had my psychic abilities since childhood and I'm a Reiki Healer.

As you can see I'm new to this community, I have joined you here today as I'm in dire need of some advice.

A couple of days ago my partner and I spent the night at a friends house, initially to lighten her spirits as she's going through a very difficult time. She's been having a lot of problems with ex partners, her health, money matters and energies in her home. (She has M.E. as well as other health troubles). She is 48, has 2 children, and is a highly experienced medium.

Under the cut is an unusual situation, I respectfully ask that you keep an open mind.

5:59 pm - More traditional then pagan, but I couldn't think where else to post this

I've been emailed this;

Traditional folklore dances in England since as far back as 1700s have been known to use props such as sticks and sword as part of their dances. Currently, the government does not recognize dance as either a Historical re-enactment or sporting activity and therefore dancers are not included within the exemption for the purchase & use of swords with regards to the VCR (Vilolent Crime reduction) bill. These dances are forms of art that are of great historical & cultural relevance, Banning the use of these swords will inevitably cause them to die out. It is crucial that they are preserved & allowed to continue. I have written a petition which is up on the home office website

Please show your support and sign my petition to get dance included so that we can continue preserving the beautiful art of sword dance.

Whether you are a dancer or not, we need your support!

We desperately need more signatures!

2:56 pm - Beltane Bash in London

Hallo all! Can't remember if I introduced myself, but I'm a pagan gal visiting from Toronto, Canada, here until June 11. I've been regularly hopping over to the local Moot in Bristol, where I'm staying through May 23.

I'm planning on going to Beltane Bash in London, and trying to figure out where I might go before or after, and I'm wondering if there are any folks traveling by car who might be interested in a passenger -- I'll happily pitch in for petrol.

Questions about Beltane Bash:
-if I were going to miss one day, which should it be -- Sunday or Monday?
-all the events listed on the website are labeled as free, yet there's an entrance fee. What gives?
-any recommendations for a hostel or cheap hotel that isn't too dodgy near the Beltane Bash event, or a short tube ride away?

current mood: hopeful

5:30 pm - WANTED:Coven Members

Hi all,
           I don't know if this has been done before, but I am looking for a group of people who would be interested in setting up a virtual coven, I would not classify myself as a Wiccan, more Pagan, but I do celebrate the sabbats and am an avid tarot reader.  I would like to set up an online community to discuss all things wiccan/pagan/new age, and perhaps this could eventually become a virtual coven tapping into the group psyche to perform spells/divinations etc.

If you are interested please post a comment, stating your age, location, sex, any special skills e.g. scrying/herbcraft etc and I will message you privately, Thanks.

2:46 pm - Help needed from Pagans for online research

Hello everyone!

I am posting this with hyzenflay's permission. I'm looking for Pagans who want to participate in online research about memory. Based on existing theory and literature, I anticipate that Pagans might differ from non-Pagans in the way they remember things. In my research, I will try to find out if this is the case by offering everyone sentences to remember, as well as having everyone fill out some background questions. This is for native English speakers only :)

The experiment consists of two separate parts. Two weeks after you finish the first part, I will email you a link to the second part. Your email address (as well as your personal information) will be used for research purposes only, and will be kept strictly confidential. In total you would have to invest approximately 40 minutes of your time.

This research is part of my Master’s degree in Psychology at the Radboud University in the Netherlands (I'm Dutch). I need as many people as possible so I would really appreciate it if you want to help me!

Please pick one of these links based on the first letter of your surname.

Thank you in advance!!

9:13 pm - Pagan events and Bristol

Hallo, all.

I'm visiting from Canada for the next eight weeks (six in Bristol, two in London). I'm looking for large pagan events worth traveling for, or small local ones. Also shops would be good, if there are any in the Bristol area (or must-visits for the time I'm in London).

Thanks in advance, and BB.

OMG, my book is finally in print!

Would love it if you checked it out and told all your friends about it, all those who might be interested in old European Craft.

Thanks much!


PS: Pardon me if I just had to gush a bit... (and do some jumping up and down!)
