PaganNewsBeagle Watery Wednesday Community News Sept 3
Watery Wednesday is time for news of our many communities, and this week is no exception.Three videos documenting the Witches High Tea held last week in Exeter, UK; a discussion of Pagan summer camp; Wandering Witch travels to D.C.; Z Budapest controversy; and the passing of ACE/Starwood festival founder Jeff Rosenbaum.
This video (and two more just like it on the same YouTube channel) follow the proceedings of last week's "Witches High Tea" and Guinness World Record attempt for "most Witches in the same place." Frankly, it's a lot less silly than it sounds and was held in commemoration of the anniversary of the deaths of the Bideford Witches, who were the last women in England to be hanged for witchcraft in 1682.
It's a bit late for this summer, but would you send your kids (or go yourself) to an explicitly Pagan summer camp? Cara Schultz ponders the possibilities in this article at the Wild Hunt.
"Wandering Witch" Natalie Zaman recently traveled to Washington D.C. and her fabulous report can be found online at her blog. (P.S. Natalie's travels in London and the UK will appear exclusively in the next issue of our Witches&Pagans magazine.)
Another Pagan elder passes: Starwood festival founder Jeff Rosenbaum is memorialized in this tribute by Ian Corrigan.
Feminist blogger Judith Laura reports on the growing controversy within the Dianic community over Z Budapest's recent ritual blessing/ordination of Brazilian Pagan leader Claudiney Prieto.
