New Page & Call for Submissions

The Advanced Bonewits' Cult Danger Evaluation Frame has now been added to the site. There's been a lot of concern regarding abuse and questionable ethics in covens and groups in local communities lately. Isaac did a lot of fantastic work to help those of us in the Pagan and other religious communities to become educated and pay more attention to the groups we join. As minorities, it's easy for us to get so excited about a new or established group in our area that we ignore red flags and let concerns go for the sake of having a local network we can be a part of. Check out the Cult Danger page at the site for guidance in identifying potentially abusive, harmful, or cult-like groups before you join a group or to take a second look at groups you may already be a part of.

The winter solstice issue of the Newsletter is coming out over the next few weeks. We are still in need of submissions. The deadline for submissions is Monday, December 10th, 2012. The theme is "New Life." For so many of us, 2012 has been a year of some pretty big changes. Old relationships ended, new ones began, careers took turns for better or worse, spirituality shifted and then shifted again. Whether your life changes were a struggle or a long, wished-for blessing, share your stories!
