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 […]

Everyday Acts – the Bread of Life

In Summer Solstice ceremony we may remember that “the Creativity that pours forth from us is Divine, Sacred – is what the Cosmos is made of.” We remember “that it is the Sun that ripens in us, we are the Bread of Life – that our Passion released, may feed the world.” May there be […]

We Are Cosmic Dynamics

At the Solstices, in traditional PaGaian ceremony, we recognize and recall the sacred space (that is, “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” is ceremoniously invited and […]

PaGaian Poiesis

Participating in the sacred process of the Wheel of the Year … that is, Earth’s everyday sacred Journey around Sun – and therefore yours – is a Poiesis … the making of a world. It is to align one’s small self with the Creative Cosmos, expressed in Her everyday Creativity. And you may expect outcomes. […]

Beltaine/Samhain @ EarthGaia

Today I tried the Beltaine ribbons on the tree that we will dance around – because the tree has grown, and I began preparations for ceremony – getting the red fabrics out and the ribbons and rainbow streamers. I figure many of you have begun to feel the transition to Samhain or Beltaine. So it […]

Brigid-ine Dedications @ Imbolc

Our Brigid-ine commitments/dedications in Imbolc/Early Spring ceremony at PaGaian Cosmology’s MoonCourt  go like this in general … though each may choose to express it differently, these words are offered: I commit myself to my particular small self, understanding that I am She – Gaia – She who is All. I am connected to Her as the […]
