    in News

    KaliSara and RevKess tend to focus on North America and Western Europe during PWN. Understandable, as they live in the Midwest of the United States. This week they will broaden their discussion of current events and news to encompass much of the global Pagan community. News from Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and of course from North America will be touched upon.


    Due to a scheduling conflict, this week's edition is on Wednesday instead of Thursday. The hosts will try to share any other scheduling issues during broadcast, but will continue to post updates in show descriptions for those who prefer to listen live.

    PWN 2015.1.3: Controversy in the Pagan World

    in News

    As event season gets ready to kick off for the Pagan community there are any number of minor controversies that might crop up. In the passed there have been issues regarding gender in sacred space, certain notable presenters and their pasts, and other issues - both minor and major. This year seems to be no exception to that. With Covenant of the Goddess facing member resignations and turmoil over their public statement regarding racial issues and a first time out festival in direct conflict with a well established festival - in both timing and geographic location - there seems to be now shortage of controversies to address this year.


    RevKess and KaliSara will talk about some of those current issues and how they may play out in the near future. From Peter Dybing's strong stand on racial inclusivity in practice and language in regards to CoG to the Gathering of Pagan Souls festival being in direct conflict with Heartland Spirit Festival at the end of May. Along the way they may also address some of the past issues that have come in the Pagan world and how they were addressed and handled by those who could make a difference. They will also talk about other upcoming events in the Pagan world, including ConVocation and PantheaCon.

    Pagan Community

    in Spirituality

    Lady Destiny and Mistress Dax are taking a look at what the phrase Pagan Community means to them.


    What do we imagine when we think of a community in the pagan/witch/wiccan belief? What does the pagan community look like in real life vs. online? How does a coven or circle work? If you are a solitary does that mean you are missing out of the pagan community?


    These questions and more wil be looked and and discussed.

    Meet The Crunchy Pagan

    in Lifestyle

    It is assumed by many that by being a Pagan you MUST also be Crunchy. Not only that but blindly crunchy as if you formed a belief around living a natural life style. Well I am Pagan and I am Crunchy but it is not because of one I am the other.


     


    I will present to you the studies I have done on these topics to form my educated not simply faith driven, like people think, decisions on these issues.


     


    We will talk about many subjects within the a natural, homesteading, crunchy lifestyle. I will share with you my insight, DIY's, recipes, and how easy it is to take the baby steps towards having a more natural life.

    in Spirituality

    Join us as we talk about some of the various projects going on in the Pagan community, from music to videos, from books to movies. We'll give some details about where projects are at and what's been happening.


    Sharon will be joining RevKess and Kalisara for the second hour, Live from Pantheacon!, to talk about the details of her own album and music video project, Portals. From her FB Event Page: "Winter and I are embarking on our most ambitious project yet, which will draw on the talents of an entire community of musicians, filmmakers, and artists. We are creating a fully produced album AND music video. This is a real stretch for us, and we considered making the video a stretch goal. However, the video really is core to the project, and the reason we decided to do a crowd funding campaign."

    Pagan Religious Rights in the United States Military with Scott Stearns

    in Spirituality

    Scott Stearns started on the Pagan path when he was in the US Navy in 1996. He started working for the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2002 and in 2006 noticed that the VA did not recognize the Pentacle as an emblem of belief. There were several requests to have the Pentacle as an emblem of belief. So, he started a letter writing campaign. He was not alone in this venture and in 2007 their request was granted.


    Tune in as I interview Scott Stearns, Elder of Covenant of the Blue Moon Church, and learn about his journey of religious freedom in life and death.

    PWN 2015.4.4: Preservation & Environmentalism

    in News

    Wednesday April 22nd was Earth Day. For 45 years people around the world, especially in the United States, Canada, and Europe, have celebrated April 22nd as a day to remember the Earth and what She means to us. Often times those who participate in Earth Day celebrations go through the rest of the year not even thinking about the damage that they may be causing to the very planet they celebrate once a year. In this week's edition of PWN KaliSara and RevKess will be talking about Earth Day and how to celebrate it year round.


    In the beginning of the show one of the collaborators on "A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment", David Dashifen Kees, will be joining the hosts to talk about that Statement. David is a contributor to Pagan Activist. On Wednesday David shared the press release from EcoPagan announcing the statement's final draft - which was released in time for Earth Day. Many notable Pagans have already signed onto the Statement, which is open to any and all to sign. It is a statement from the Pagan community, but not the ultimate statement. Some will not agree with it in its entirety. Tune in to PWN and read the Statement to help decide for yourself.
