Online Support for You

At the Pagan Federation we’ve been talking about what sorts of content we should be putting online for our communities, to help them out when they’re in isolation and unable to leave their homes. We already do online moots and festivals, in fact, do… Continue Reading “Online Support for You”

Autumn Equinox and the GLAD Study

The autumn equinox is a time for pause and reflection. It’s that moment of balance; darkness is about to take over, and before too long, the nights will noticeably outweigh the days.

Friday Feeling
