SORT BY Relevancy
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."
RevKess shares some of his favorites from Pagan and Pagan-y artist who have released CDs in the first half of 2015. Featuring Damh the Bard, SJ Tucker, Mama Gin and more. With just over 60 minutes of music, you are sure to have an enjoyable listening experience.
This episode includes new music from Damh the Bard and his Sabbat album, SJ Tucker and her Stolen Season, Mama Gina's Solitaire, Chronilus with Threshold, and Celia with Letting Go. There's also to surprise pieces - not new for 2015, but recent from two groups you are sure to recognize.
The importance of ritual, how it connects us with the Pantheons, and how it shapes our souls. Plus music and alot more
With PantheaCon starting in less than 24 hours from broadcast, RevKess and KaliSara wanted to take the opportunity to talk about some of the upcoming festival events. Focusing primarily on the United States, there are many festivals and Pagan events taking place in 2015. ConVocation, Between the Worlds, Heartland, PSG (just to name a few). During the show your hosts will give highlights of some of these upcoming events in early 2015.
Be sure to tune in to Pagan-Musings on the 15th for a live segment feature Sharon Knight. She will be dialing in from P-Con to share about her new music and video project.
If you are hosting or know of an event in your area that you would like us to talk about, please let us know through our Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note: The hosts are purposefully leaving PPD events out of this broadcast, those will be addressed in more detail as that season get closer.)
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.

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.

Mike Nichols, the author of The Witches' Sabbats, is one of the first American Pagan broadcasters. He was broadcasting on regular radio in the 1970's. RevKess and KaliSara are very happy to host Mr Nichols in this episode to discuss a history of Pagan broadcasting as well as some of the history of Paganism in the United States and elsewhere around the modern world. Mr Nichols has been presenting workshops and discussions on a history of witchcraft and occultism in the United States for a number of years now.
A safe place for Pagans or the beginnings of a new cult...
There has been a new buzz worthy community making the rounds by way of facebook, their website and other internet outlets.
Join our host Lady Destiny and guest co-host in the 3rd part of this topic.
Hear her opinion on the good points, bad points and just how blurred the line of forming a Pagan community and extreme cult this particular idea might become.
It is June 26th, an important date in the history of the United States and the history of the LGBTQ rights movement. Three times on June 26th the Supreme Court of the United States has maded a ruling that has deeply effected the progress of that movement. In 2003 SCOTUS made a ruling that introduced the idea of "sexual privacy" as a constitutional issue. In 2013 SCOTUS overturned DOMA S3. And this year, SCOTUS rules in favor of marriage equality nation wide.
RevKess and KaliSara are both ordained ministers recognized by the State of Nebraska and elsewhere. They have been eagerly anticipating a favorable ruling from SCOTUS so that they can offer their services to gay and lesbian couples who wish to be legally bound in matrimony. As Pagans and supporters (or members) of the LGBTQ community both have been willing, ready, and able to perform non-legal ceremonies for their LGBTQ friens, family, or clients who have sought them out for such services. With this decision from SCOTUS hundreds, if not thousands, of Pagan clergy nationwide can now offer those services to those who seek them and for those weddings/marriages to be legally and fully recognized by the United States federal government and the individual states' governments.
The fight for LGBTQ rights if far from over. Some politicians are moving to take steps to protect their constituents from the "evil" of same-sex marriage. Tune in to this edition of PWN to learn more about the SCOTUS ruling and some of the politicians, pundits, and "religious zealots" who are still fighting against the tide of progess in the United States.
RevKess is pleased to get the opportunity to visit with Wendy Callahan, a Nebraskan author and steampunk novelist with an extensive background in Paganism and spirituality.
Note: The focus of the show went in a different direction at the request of Wendy. She wanted to talk about Pagan parenting, or more to the point, parenting as a Pagan. There is a difference. Tune in for the archive of the show to learn more about that. The topic of her writing came up towards the end of the show.
As her bio describes: "Wendy is a contemporary and steampunk fantasy author, co-author of "Steampunk for Simpletons," and a genealogical Nancy Drew in disguise. A college town New Englander turned one-horse town Nebraskan, she raises a cup of Dunkies to life among cornfields and coyotes. She is still pleasantly surprised that amber waves of grain exist, and has declared the Midwestern prairies "wicked cool."
"Her writing has been featured in “Witches & Pagans” (f.k.a. “newWitch”), “The Beltane Papers”, “If… A Journal of Spiritual Exploration” (f.k.a. “PagaNet News”), and many other publications."
RevKess first "met" Wendy over social networking a few years back and has devoured several of her fantasy novels and shared in conversations about writing. Adding her voice to the conversation, KaliSara will be talking parenting from a Pagan perspective with this multi-faceted guest.
