A wonderful group of people collaborated on a Paganism 101 post for the group blog the Slacktiverse. There’s a cool comment thread that’s active about it, and we’ll be updating and revising the post into a semi-static article to be hosted at the Slacktiverse. I might mirror parts of it here, as well, but for now, go check it out over there, and feel free to make comments or suggestions in either place. You might also want to take a look at the Wiccan glossary that I’m developing.
From the conclusion:
If you want to learn more about Paganism, we’ll be discussing recommended resources in the thread and will add them to this piece in its semi-stable form, but the biggest recommendation we can make is to go straight to the source! Go outside, get to know your corner of the world. Connect with plants and animals, with your land and sea and sky. Go inside: meditate, and reflect on your beliefs, feelings, and memories. Read mythology, remember old wives’ tales and good luck charms, and most of all, live in loving relationships with yourself, others, and your surroundings.
