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

with Glenys Livingstone Ph.D.

or available on a per Seasonal Moment basis as each arises in your region.

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, expressed as She – within self, other and All.

The course is a ceremonial Journey into the significance of the Triple Spiral motif engraved at Bru-na-Boinne, but omnipresent. It is a Goddess and Cosmic journey expressed and summarised in every breath.

Triple Spiral

Ref: Michael Dames, Ireland, p.192.

With every inbreath I receive the Gift – I am Virgin ever-new.
With the peaking of every breath I am this dynamic Place of Being. I am Mother.
With every outbreath I become the Gift, the Old One – ever transformed.
***
With every breath in, I receive the Gift of All – the Transformations of the Ages, Old One.
With the peaking of every breath, I am the Sentient Place of Now, the Sacred Interchange, Mother.
With every breath out, I am the Gift to All – again renewed, Virgin. 

Glenys Livingstone, PaGaian Cosmology, p.261-262.

The course is a journey into the seamlessness and balance of the layers of self – personal, social and cosmic, and nurturing deep Creativity. The whole of Gaia’s cycle provides an wholistic eco-psychology  that can heal and create. It is a Poiesis: the making of a world.

For the Southern Hemisphere, the Introduction is best started by mid March-early April, so that Samhain/Deep Autumn material can be started by mid-April, depending on one’s own pace. 

For the Northern Hemisphere, the Introduction is best started by mid September-early October, so that Samhain/Deep Autumn material can be started by mid-October, depending on one’s own pace. 

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

On-line material includes instructive and informative e-notes, slideshows, and meditations. It is a lot of rich material, that will last you for years … you will be able to return to it, and graze as it suits you, follow the particular threads of your interest, and develop it in your own way.

Artemistress/facilitator: Glenys Livingstone Ph.D. (Social Ecology), author of PaGaian Cosmology: Re-inventing Earth-based Goddess Religion

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

From Douglas in Indiana, USA (2017): This course will take you to the very Heart of the Cosmos. You will never be the same!

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 AustraliaI 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, …

Brian Swimme and Thomas Berry describe ritual/ceremony:  a “ritual mode of expression” is from its beginning “the manner in which humans respond to the universe, just as birds respond by flying or as fish respond by swimming.”[i] It is a way in which we as humans, as a species, may respond to this awesome experience of being and becoming.

[i] Brian Swimme and Thomas Berry, The Universe Story, p.152.

Contemplating and celebrating the seasonal transitions is a method of getting with the essential plot of what it means to Be; and particularly what it means to be human – a storyteller with self-reflective consciousness; ceremony is a method of responding and conversing with the sentient Cosmos in which we live.

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)
