Pagan Pride Day season is just about here. The official event season kicks off with Lammas and concludes with Samhain (1 August through 31 October). Every seasons since PWN launched the hosts have spent some time talking about PPD and related events. They plan to do the same this year as well.
RevKess and Zaracon will also give you a Pagan perspective on world news, health and science, and updates on stories previously covered on PWN. Pagan related music and book releases will also be shared.
Are you interested in the "pagan festival scene"? Perhaps you are new to the pagan path, and you would like to attend your first pagan festival. Tune in to the Sacred Oak Circle, and listen to Rev. Gary talk about his experience with pagan festivals. Our mission is to inspire, teach, and empower you on your spiritual path!
It is not uncommon to find Pagan high priestesses and celebrants wearing something on their heads, be it a full, face-covering veil, a headdress, a hair-covering scarf or shawl, or even a small, tiara-like circlet.
This week, Kalisara and RevKess are bringing you a panel discussion: Pagan women from many different paths and beliefs who share the practice of using veils and other head coverings in their ritual and/or daily lives.
While we have touched on this topic previously, this time we will hear from those women who practice veiling, discussing the why's, the how's, the when's, as well as the problems that can come from veiling. We will be hearing their stories, many of which embody a quiet strength reflective of the oft-veiled Matron Goddesses.
Paganism was the first religion and Christianity was born from Paganism. There is so many similarities between these two. For years, the two religions have fought the right to practice. In the 1800s, Christians believed that if yiu were Pagan, then you were a witch if I'm not mistaking. The practice of magic is nothing harmful, it is mostly healing. In Christians today, you never know who goes to church and who doesn't because you got ones today doing awful things and calling themselves Christians. So tell me, with all the hate between these two religions, where is God at?
All across the United States and aroun the world there are many Pagan community events every year. Some or big, some are small. All are structured with the initial intent of bringing the Pagan community together. In this edition of Pagan-Musings RevKess and KaliSara talk about some of the events in the United States and elsewhere around the globe for the 2014 calendar. PantheaCon and Convocation have already occured, as well as others, but there are many many more to come.
NOTE: Our apologies for the audio quality on RevKess's end. Seems the gremlns missed that MErcury went direct recently.....

We sometimes take our topic inspirations from odd places. Shauna Aura Knight's blog isn't al that odd, but the reblogged article she shared early in January might at least seem that way. Are You a Highly Sensitive Person? She shares some very personal aspects of her own hypersensitivity in the following post and also shares how the information may be valuable to people and to leaders. KaliSara and RevKess explore that topic in this edition. Shauna may join them for part or all of the discussion.
UPDATE: We apologizxe for the abrupt ending to the show, both Shauna and KaliSara lost ther connection at the same time. The conversation will continue on February 2nd.
SHOW NOTES available here.
KaliSara and RevKess are joined by authors Taylor Ellwood and Shauna Aura to talk about their upcoming anthology from Megalithica Books. Tune in live and join us in the chat room.
The anthology: "This anthology will explore leadership for real Pagans and real groups. We’re looking for essays and articles that detail leadership success stories, best practices, and ways you have worked through challenges and obstacles"
From Taylor's website:"I am the Managing Non-Fiction Editor of Megalithica Books, an imprint of Immanion Press. I first started working with Immanion press in 2004, when they published my first solo book Pop Culture Magick. As the managing non-fiction editor for Immanion Press, my vision for the non-fiction line is that Immanion Press publishes edgy, experimental, and controversial books about magic and the occult subculture"
From Shauna's website: "She is the author of the ritual facilitation book Spiritual Scents (Jupiter Gardens Press),[..] and Shauna’s writing also appears in the anthologies Calling to our Ancestors (Asphodel Press), Stepping in to Ourselves: An Anthology of Writings on Priestessing (Goddess Ink),and Mantle of Stars (Biblioteca Alexandrina)."
