While taking some time to reflect on 2011 Rowan Pendragon began to think about what 2012 would bring. During this meditative period guidance came toward doing something for the new year, but it took time to figure out what it was.
Ideas were coming in bits and pieces with each feeling incomplete, as though it had a friend it were trying to bring. This is how The Pagan Blog Project 2012 came about.
(The Short Answer) It is a way to spend a year dedicating time each week to studying, reflecting, and sharing your spiritual and magickal path.
The project consists of a single blog post each week posted on your blog each Friday for the year of 2012 that will involve a topic that relates to Paganism, Witchcraft, magick, spirituality, and so on.
Use your posts to share your views on a topic, to talk about your own personal experiences, or to act as a catalyst for research into a subject you want to learn more about then share what you learn and feel. Each week has a prompt from a letter of the alphabet to act as a common thread linking all participants.
Are there really Pagan-Buddhists (Pegabus)? Yes, anyone interested in the Earth and spirituality, the environment and the Dharma, fairies (devas) and reconnecting with our forests might be called to Buddhism and Paganism. Approached with the right intention, even Padmasambhava Guru Rinpoche, seen here in the mist, would bless it.
When? To build togetherness and community, we will all POST on the same day, Fridays, starting Jan. 6, 2012.
How do I know what to write about?
There is a structure to how the weekly blog posts will be done in order to help stay on track. The Pagan Blog Project is set up to keep posts and topics focused specifically on Paganism, Wicca, Witchcraft, Goddess spirituality, the occult, and so on. Rather than a specific topic to write about, we will be working with a letter each week. There are 26 letters and 52 weeks. That means using the same letter for two weeks. The first week could be about affirmations, altars, amulets, animism, Aradia, Alexandrian tradition, and so on. More
