Samhain/Beltaine Moment @ EarthGaia May 2020

As our planet Earth, and we Her inhabitants, orbit Mother Sun in our everyday sacred journey[1], we move into the Seasonal Moment of Samhain/Beltaine, the cross-quarter between Equinox and Solstice: that is, into Deep Autumn towards the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, and into High Spring towards the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. The […]

Threads of Gold in the Compost

There are threads of gold in the compost, if one has the vision for it. And we may take the golden thread, exclaim the strongest natural fibre known – our creative selves, our imaginations – for the building of a new world made sacred, of our conceiving: yet beyond our knowings, across the vast Darkness between […]

This essay is the second part in a series of edited excerpts from Chapter 3 of the author’s book, PaGaian Cosmology: Re-inventing Earth-based Goddess Religion.

We Live in a Sentient Cosmos

We live in a sentient Cosmos. That is the premise of much of the Seasonal ceremonial celebration as it is done in the PaGaian tradition, the ceremonial marking of Her creative cycle: that is, with the understanding that ceremony is a conversation, a relationship with One who hears, as we listen also. This Cosmos is […]

Lammas/Imbolc Season Feb 2020 C.E.

In the Southern Hemisphere it is the season of the waxing dark, post-Summer Solstice; and in the Northern Hemisphere it is the season of the waxing light, post-Winter Solstice.  At this time in Earth’s annual orbit, which is our everyday sacred journey, Earth makes the post-Solstice transition, crossing the midpoint (the “cross-quarter”) between Solstice and […]

Lammas Breath Meditation

… from PaGaian Cosmology Lammas/Late Summer ceremony: “Breathe this breath that is yours, as if it were your first … do you remember that it was so? Breathe this breath that is yours, as if it were your last … do you remember that it will be so? Breathe it now, this breath that is […]

As we turn towards the Dark: the Season of Lammas

After the peaking of Summer Solstice, there is the turn into the dark. Traditionally in Pagan circles, where this Seasonal transition is celebrated as “Lughnasad”, a straw man is burned, representing the passing of the fulfillment of Summer: all is given over, the harvest of the light part of the cycle is set, as the […]

A PaGaian Breath Meditation

(from Chapter 8 PaGaian Cosmology) Going within for the moment and becoming aware of your breath,  feeling this cycle within. With your imagination, remember all the breathing happening right now on the planet – feel/sense it with each breath.  The entire planet is breathing. Remember the constant dawning and setting of the Sun – happening […]
