If you identify as "Wiccan" or another "Craft" participant, you'll be able to refresh your memory on a few basic points of Wiccan/WitchCraft belief in the Day 794 post . This post includes a Doreen Valiente version of "The Charge Of The Goddess" as adapted by "Starhawk."
Links to several articles exist in this Day 794 post, including:
- "We All Come From The Goddess" Chant
- "The New Moon" - A Witches Chant
- "The Earth is Our Mother" Chant
- "Spirits of Fire" - A Witches Chant
- "Aradia a Wiccan Goddess" Chant
- "The Leaves on The Trees" Chant
- "Earth, Air, Fire, Water - (The Elemental Chant)"
If you do not identify as Wiccan, as a Witch, or as Pagan, you are likely to still find the chants and articles very interesting. Just prepare yourself a little ahead of time - for open-mindedness - because thousands upon thousands of people worldwide adhere to Wiccan/Pagan beliefs and practices.
Some say that the various sects and denominations of Christendom and the practices of the same are simply practices and explanations structured atop "pagan" rituals, theories and philosophy. This will, no doubt, disturb many adamant and devout persons who identify as "Christian," but to my understanding, The 800 Days blog (and certainly THIS blog) is dedicated to voicing opinions and theories of all sorts, no matter what belief system is being displayed. I think it would be very short sighted and closed-minded to only read about and consider things already familiar to me and truly hope that readers will follow along regardless of what belief system they currently subscribe to.
The date of the Day 794 post is: Monday, October 18, 2010.
