PaGaian Cosmology On-Line

A Celebration of Cosmogenesis in the Wheel of the Year

a course and mentoring

through eight Seasonal Moments (Sabbats) of Earth’s journey around Sun – the Solstices, Equinoxes and cross-quarter days

PaGaian Cosmology is an eco-spirituality grounded in the Pagan/Indigenous tradition of Old Europe, linked to story of the unfolding Universe, and Triple Goddess Poetry. It celebrates the Creativity of the Cosmos – within self, other and All.

The human emerges within the life systems of Earth as that being in whom the universe reflects on and celebrates itself in a special mode of conscious self-awareness (Thomas Berry, Evening Thoughts, p.146)

Contemplating and celebrating the seasonal transitions is a method of getting with the essential plot of what it means to be human, a method of responding and conversing with the sentient Cosmos in which we live.

The course is a journey into nurturing deep creativity, and sensing the seamlessness of the layers of self – personal, social and cosmic. The whole cycle provides an wholistic eco-psychology  that can heal and create. It is a Poiesis: the making of a world. The course may be done within the context of facilitating ceremony with others, or as an individual desiring more intimacy with self, Earth and Cosmos. There is a closed PaGaian Cosmology Facebook group where experience may be shared with past and current students if desired.

The Southern Hemisphere year begins late April with Deep Autumn/Samhain, so the Introduction needs to be started by late March/early April 2015.

The Introduction may also be done by itself at any time. 

The Northern Hemisphere year begins in late October with Deep Autumn/ Samhain, so the Introduction needs to be started by late September/early October 2015.

On-line material includes instructive and informative e-notes, images, meditations and Skype session. Meditations may be posted on CD if desired: and photocopied material is posted.

From Margaret in Tennessee, USA:  I have always been attracted to religions of Nature (i.e. paganism), but it has always been more of a mind thing then a heart thing.  As you emphasize, PaGaian Cosmology is a practice and so that is what I am mostly focusing on and I feel its magic blossoming in my heart.  Thank you for everything.

From Lyndell in Ballina NSW Australia: I have found it to re-generate so many of my principles and values around areas such as justice, integrity, ethics, that I have become increasingly aware I have buried and compromised in order to live within, survive within, a patriarchal world. AND: The course has been so powerful in supporting this process of the re-birth of myself, and of the re-generation of the strength to stand up for myself and my values, that I cannot express how profound the process has been, …

Glenys offers her scholarship and decades of experience in facilitating seasonal ceremony, with Earth/Cosmos and Goddess based expression: for the last several years these ceremonies have taken place in MoonCourt, Blue Mountains, Australia where she lives with her partner Taffy Seaborne.
