Class Description: The large umbrella of Pagan community* has no governing authority or universal standard of ethics. Co-existing requires tolerance, a fact predators enjoy using tho their advantage. However, we have tools to recognize and neutralize them. This workshop is intended as a discussion rather than lecture.
*An umbrella term is a collective term for specific and related things. Usually Pagan Umbrella simply suggests that there are a wide variety of polytheist, pantheist, duotheist, and other religions under it. Some polytheistic, nature-based religions do reject inclusion under the term, for example many Hindu, Indigenous American groups, Shinto, Heathens, and even some Witches are fairly firm that they are not “Pagan”. “Pagan” is usually defined as any religion “not of the book” (Abrahamic tradition) or “other than those of the main or recognized religions” is considered pagan. The image of a physical “pagan umbrella” is from the website https://www.hilarysvanity.com.
