Have you ever been to a Pagan Festival?
NeoPagan festivals have been going on for over 2 decades and continue to rise in both attendance and numbers of different festivals. If you have attended a fest, what did like best? If you have never been to Pagan festival, what do you think you would enjoy most? The community interaction? Meeting the Big Name Pagans? The Dancing? The Drumming? The Music? The large group rituals?

| I Attended This Year's Pagan Spirit Gathering. It Was A Spiritual Experience... ||Aug 11th. at 8:05:19 pm EDT|

I attended this year's Pagan Spirit Gathering. It was a Spiritual experience, to say the least. For the first time in my life I could truly be myself without second guessing a single thought, word, or deed.
The candlelit labyrinth was awesome, I walked it twice and had a distinctly different yet incredible experience each time.
Seeing Mists of Avalon early AND on the big screen, with hundreds of Pagans was very awesome, indeed! The best part of that was the Wicker Man ritual done in the movie: it looked just like the Wicker Man ritual WE had done only a couple hours before sitting down to watch the film!
The friendships I made in that week will last a lifetime.
To those that loved me and supported me at PSG, thank you! It was the best experience of my entire life.
(...and to those I lost touch with, e-mail me!)
| I'm A Young Witch. I Have Only Been To Two Festivals In... ||Aug 12th. at 7:57:28 pm EDT|

I'm a young Witch. I have only been to two festivals in my life--both Lughnasadh festivals in New Mexico, far far away from where I live. I am lucky enough to have an aunt who lives there, and will take me to her community's Sabbat events. All I can say is--they have changed my life. The culture of Paganism is like no other. I have met people at those festivals who will be my friends for years--even if I only see them come Lughnasadh time. People really do "walk the talk" of Paganism, and that was a very inspirational thing to see, as a teen solitary in a Southern town. The Goddess is alive, energy and magick are real and tangible. Believe it or not, but for many teenagers it takes an experience like this to transform witchcraft into the abstract knowledge you learn from a book into a way and a true experience for life.
Blessed Be--and thank you SWEFA/CASHEW, for all you have done for me.
