Stepping Out of Religion into a Way of Life
What is the purpose of life? Life!
Do we dare to awaken, to open our senses and then open them again? Is it time to step out of religion and into a way of life?
What might it smell, look, feel, taste, and sound like if we chose to move through our days and nights daring to consciously live fully integrated lives? What would it be like if we chose to walk in a world where the mystical freely intermingles with the domestic? What would it be like to embrace the everyday magics of shaping-with, the multiversal secrets hidden in plain site, and the deep songs of life, death, and rebirth as if they were as plainly present in our lives as our own breath, the rhythm of our own beating hearts, the call of our own hungry bellies? What would it be like to live life as a fully conscious human being, celebrating ourselves as primal apes, as primates born of this sacred living planet, Eartha?
Let us explore these notions together through a Heathen lens using art, music, poetry, ritual, and conversation. Let us consciously choose to be informed by the lore, not ruled by lore.
May we all dare to dwell in beauty, balance, and delight!
Bless the Bees!
Bless the Bears!
Bless the Cherry Trees!
