........I'm dedicating this weeks show to one of the Five Cardinal Elements, the Element of Air. It's a good topic for April because, by many traditions, Air is associated with Springtime and Day's Beginning.

Also, a quick look at some of the best known hoaxes in the history of the Western World (well, sort of, anyway)
And we'll hear some foolishness from today's Modern Trickster, Russell Brand. The English actor and commedian has, in my opinion, grown as…

...This week here on The Spiral Dance, we're Thinking About Deism.
Deism as an encompassing thought and philosophy had a major influence over those we in American call our Founding Fathers. Thus the shape of our Constitution is very much a product of Deism.
But what's the connection between Deism and Paganism? Well, in the Eighteenth Century many Deists spoke of a Creator God, or The God of Nature. They connected to the Devine through Rational Thought Processes, and by…

I can log into any other religious websites, except for ones that are spiritually "pagan" in nature. This is disturbing for me, despite the historical hypocrisy of "religious freedom" in my country of residence. And here I am, in the popular calendar year of 2015 experiencing this... intolerance. Well, I am thankful that this site is open, and that it has a live chat option that is not blocked either. It's comforting for me. This is a blessing, and I hope others will find WiccanNeoPagan.com…Continue

This is from his album, "Journey to the Center of the Heart", and the meditation is called "Beloved…Continue
