PaGaian Cosmology Course On-Line

 PaGaian Cosmology On-Line

A Celebration of Goddess and Cosmogenesis in the Wheel of the Year

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

with Glenys Livingstone Ph.D.

… to strengthen the sense of belonging and connection to this Earth and Cosmos, in your particular place, and in your unique presence, through practices of relationship, Goddess images, meditations and ceremonial conversation with Her. To align with the magic and power of Her Creativity through ceremonial practice.

The year long course may be whatever you wish it to be for you: each self will develop the material in their own unique way. There is a lot of material and it will last you for years. The course is suitable for both the novice and the experienced. It is offered as a ceremonial journey into the Creativity of the Cosmos as it is expressed in the Seasonal Moments of our Planet, in your particular place, and with Goddess metaphor. The Triple Spiral motif engraved at Bru-na-Boinne (Newgrange) in Ireland is understood to express this cosmology. The year’s course 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.

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 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.

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 teaching, and centrally her experience in facilitating seasonal ceremony, with Earth/Cosmos and Goddess based expression.

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, …



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.
