The individual is made up of various parts: thoughts, feelings, actions, dreams, memories, and physiology. You could also say the individual is the personality, the genetics, the environment, and the history of the person. However, the whole is always more than the sum of its parts and we are all social beings who seek to belong, to find our relationship with “the group." We are all active participants in our lives striving to feel positively about ourselves.

Come join us for another lively discussion when we explore the dance of our individual selves and our parts as we seek connection and identity within the larger Pagan community. How do our past stories of being/feeling like an outsider expand and contract within community. Can we give time and space for the first ripple of our anxiety or depression to react with community, allowing healing to occur or does it flood our cauldron with explosive results? Does our identification with other communities (GLBTQ, PoC, Poly, Kinkster etc) impede our sense of safety or our ability to be seen?
