Pagan News Beagle: Watery Wednesday, August 17

The occult makes its way into the art world. Wiccans participate in a multifaith prayer circle. And A look at how to teach Heathenry to children. It's Watery Wednesday, our weekly segment on news about the Pagan community from around the world! All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

Inspiration can come from all kinds of places. For pandrogynous artist Genesis Bryer P-Orridge it is the occult and macabre that pushes h/er to make art. British newspaper The Guardian shares a profile of P-Orridge as well as h/er work which recently was shown off in New York.

Wicca has come a long way from being a fringe religion looked on with disdain by "polite society." Last month, at the Democratic National Convention, Wiccan High Priestess Karen Bruhin took part in an interfaith prayer circle.

Although Paganism comes in many forms, polytheism is certainly one of the most popular variations. But what are the foundations of polytheism? The Thracian describes his opinion of polytheism's core here.

Lammas has come and gone but that doesn't mean you can't still celebrate the harvest. At her blog for Patheos, Shinto-Pagan writer Megan Manson shares some food magic in celebration of the harvest, centered around "salt dough."

Most Pagans are adult or adolescent converts, either from another religion or secularism. But some are raised in the faith. If you're a Heathen parent though, how do you teach your children about your faith? Räv Skogsberg has some tips.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
