Restoring Her as Creative Triplicity: part 2, Place of Being By Glenys Livingstone Ph.D.

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. Author’s note: In this three part series of essays I continue to use the terms “Virgin, Mother, and Crone” as names for the qualities of the Triple Goddess, whom many have loved […]

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 […]

Celebrate Summer Solstice: Decolonise the Mind

To celebrate Summer Solstice in Summer, and indeed the Wheel of Earth’s orbit around Sun, the Seasonal Moments as they express themselves in your region, is an act of decolonising the mind. It is to set your self free of imposed arbitrary calendar, imposed by colonisers who have had an agenda of what constitutes a […]

December Solstice – Summer/Winter 2019 C.E.

The Season of Solstice celebrates the sacred Moment when Earth’s tilt leans both hemispheres, South and North, to the furthest point in relationship with Mother Sun: it is the Seasonal Moment when the hours of light or dark peak, come to fullness … and there is a turning, a re-turning, to the other again. Solstice […]
