When we started this project it often seemed that there was a lot more being publicized about Contemporary Pagan practices and how-to, rather than juicy discussions of how we live as Pagans outside of our ritual spaces and individual groups. If there were deep thoughtful posts or conversations it seemed as if they were buried in individual blogs or hidden inside various discussion groups or bulletin boards.
One of the delightful changes in our online Pagan culture of the last decade is that we now have a MUCH greater wealth of online postings and discussions about Pagan Values throughout the year!
In March of this year, Terence P Ward writing at The Wild Hunt explored the topic of Hospitality: a Pagan Value? with short discussions on Hospitality with a number of Pagan luminaries.
Our community has also started extending deep conversations across many different sites and through a spectrum of thought and experience.
Over at Gods & Radicals, just this may, Kadmus wrote a delightfully complex and deep post on Capitalist Leveling and the Problem of Pagan Values.
Writing a few days later at the Patheos blog A Sense of Place, James Lindenschmidt carried the same conversation both forward and an interesting new direction with his post On Place, Pagan Values, and Politicizing Paganism.
As we approach the official start of Summer, Cherry Hill Seminary and instructor Selina Rifkin are offering are offering the course Pagans and Permaculture: Bringing Our Values Down to Earth.
So what conversations or posts or episodes have you experienced or witnessed that you would like to share, or perhaps respond to?
