new age radio panel

Posted on

Now that “radio” is no longer confined to the airwaves but we can access nearly infinite channels by our computers, our options are much greater, but at the same time, it can be like the proverbial needle in a hay-stack. How do you find the shows that have what YOU want to hear? How do you find the ones you want? What do you want to hear?

Spiritual Crafting Panel

Posted on Updated on

It’s very easy to enter a trance or highly intentional state when working on something beautiful and meaningful, and that makes both the object and the activity spiritually powerful.

Elders Panel

Posted on Updated on

For most of human history elders were the repositories of knowledge. Even after literacy was widespread, there are certain things that one can only learn from those who are experienced. But in the world of the internet, (and elders who sometimes are not as familiar with it as the young) the old are often seen as people with extra physical challenges, and little to offer the community. What new systems are beginning to be set in place? What makes one an Elder? Is it just chronological age? Experience? Can one be an Elder in some area and a youngster in others?

House Sharers Panel: elves, ghosts and others who share our homes

Posted on

There are many entities who attach themselves to our homes and families. Do you have someone who shares your house with you, or do you wish you did? Wouldn’t you love to have some hobs who helped you with your housework? Do you put out milk and honey at certain times to share with the little people? Do you have a ghost in your attic- or bathroom? What experiences have you had? Some of those who share our space are obnoxious, and not good room-mates and we have to encourage them (banish them) so they stop disrupting our lives. Some are protective and pleasant to have around. We hope for panelists who’ll share their experiences, or their knowledge of the history of these folk in cultures across the globe.

Leylines and Energy Pools Panel

Posted on

There are streams and gathering places of energy around the world. Some suggest they are in a regular geometrical pattern, others that they are as irregular as the physical topological features. Some have said that you can tell where ley lines are because birch trees tend to grow along them. Others suggest other plants have that affinity. Some people say they can see ley lines, as some people see auras. Dowsers say they can divert energy streams by pounding iron rods into the ground where they’re running. Many psychics feel the ability to pull energy from these currents. As a common activity among neo-pagans is raising cones of power, there are often pools of left over energy after a circle, and sometimes those pools can become stagnant and the energy can become “bad”, and needs to be removed. Is “grounding” negative energy the best thing you can do with it? Or, as with physical pollutants, is the human population now so large that the planet can no longer cleanse itself of our waste- whether farming, industrial or psychic? If we don’t ground it, how do we treat it ourselves?
