We Are Cosmic Dynamics

At the Solstices, in traditional PaGaian ceremony, we recognize and recall the sacred space (that is, in traditional Pagan language, “call the directions”), with recognition that we are Cosmic Dynamics of the elements, as poetically inspired by cosmologist Brian Thomas Swimme’s perception of water, fire, earth and air.[1] This recalling, and “creating of sacred space” […]

Mother Sun Ripens in Us: So May We Shine
