    PMP: Little Pagan Acorns and the Pagan homeschooling lifestyle

    in Spirituality

    With the many things going on in parts of the country that make certain school districts less friendly to Pagan children, children with learning disabilities and/or giftedness, and more, it is becoming much more common and accepted for parents to take on the task of schooling their children at home. In addition, homeschooling in the age of the internet and social media has become much more feasible and complex. Also, Pagan homeschooling is a viable alternative to the religious private schools available to Christians.


    Join RevKess and Kalisara in talking about Pagan homeschooling. We will be addressing some of the rules and regulations, providing some links to resources. We will talk about homeschooling vs. unschooling and other parent-directed learning techniques. Joining us is the group moderator for Little Pagan Acorns.


    Little Pagan Acorns is a webpage (http://www.littlepaganacorns.com/) and a group on facebook that describes itself as: "a community for Pagan homeschoolers, as well as anyone raising Pagan children. Focusing in printables, puzzles, worksheets and other resources." "Even if you’re not a Pagan homeschooling parent, you can use lots of these pages to keep your kids amused and to teach them a little bit about various Pagan paths and pantheons."

She is also currently a 2nd degree student with a more traditional Wiccan coven that focuses on family-based practice. She considers herself to be a Modern American Polytheist – a mixture of syncretistic polytheism, techno-Paganism, pop-culture magick, Wicca, and Unverified Personal Gnosis (UPG).


    Additionally, Ms. Callahan is the former Program Director of SpiralScouts International, an alternative Pagan-based scouting organization for children ages 3-18, and a former board member of several other Detroit area Pagan organizations."

Apr 2013, she became a ritualist with Prairie Star Circle and later became lead ritualist (Jun 2013) before taking over all leading aspects Dec 2013.


    Shanda has conducted workshops and classes, led group rituals, organized adult night-out events, ran a divination study group, presided over weddings, and taught a multiple-day seminar on Ritualist & Leadership training.

    After a move in 2014, Shanda is still co-organizer of RNWG with most work being behind the scenes and she has remained the Local Coordinator for Kearney Area Pagan Pride. She is Secretary for the Black Hat Society of Omaha, a member of the Pagan Pride Day Omaha planning committee, and attends rituals with a local Druid Group, Prairie Shadow Grove.
