Welcome to Modern Pagan Spirituality! This site’s main goal is to provide a safe space to share information, inspiration, and instruction. You’ll find various pieces of collected information, original content, photographs, artwork, and more that I feel reflect my definition of a modern, spiritual Pagan. It is not a definitive path. It’s not even a straight, narrow, singular path. It is but one among many in a huge forest of paths. They may all lead in different directions. That’s okay. It’s not necessarily about the destination.
A Few Guidelines for this Blogsphere~

You’re welcome to present your ideas via comments in a scholarly way… no name calling or otherwise inflammatory commentary will be permitted. I reserve the right to delete comments as I see fit.
- Education. Educate yourself. Don’t look to this blog for the end-all-be-all information about Pagan Spirituality. You’ve got the world at your fingertips – use the internet, go to a library, find like-minded groups online or in your community. Talk to people (online and offline). If you find something you’re curious about – whether it’s related to Paganism or something completely outside the realm of religion… Educate yourself. You are your greatest teacher.
- Copying info directly from this site is not permitted. Please don’t lift entire posts and re-post them as your own. I work hard on these posts, and it’s disrespectful to copy or claim information here on this site as your own. That said, if you desperately feel the need to copy something or want to use something in your own blog, please message me for permission first.
If you type “Modern Paganism” into any web search engine, you’ll likely get thousands of articles, pictures, and videos describing various aspects of Paganism, Neo-Paganism, and Contemporary Paganism. You’ll see pages on Wicca, Druidism, Heathenism, and a bunch of other -isms. Most of these pages offer a wealth of information, some good and some not so good. The truth is this: there are so many different ways to celebrate a Pagan Spirituality that you don’t have to limit yourself to ONE singular “title” (or any title, for that matter). This is my “version” of Modern Pagan Spirituality. The material you find in this blog is my take on a few key elements: morality and ethics, energy & cosmic influences, magick* & the unknown, and our eternal selves – aka our souls….
You’re new to the path. You crave insight and understanding. You know the Earth, nay, the Universe, speaks to you. You feel a connection to all living creatures, to all natural elements around you. You fancy gemstones and river rocks alike. You love to garden. You speak to pets like they’re human.
Where do you go from here? How do you become Pagan?
So, what exactly is Paganism?
Modern Paganism, Paganism, or even Neo-Paganism (whatever term you want to use), is a general umbrella term that can encompass practitioners of many different traditions. However, Modern Paganism is unto itself, its own entity. That means yes, you can be Pagan and not adhere to any of the other spiritual or religious traditions that fall into the Pagan umbrella category.
