Date books

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this one, I wasn't able to read all the posts to see. One datebook I cannot live without is the We'moon calandar. Lets see about a link.....We'moon datebook

Wow, what an exciting resource list!

For children I love Celebrating the Great Mother: A Handbook of Earth Honoring Activities for Parents and Children by Cait Johnson and Maura Shaw.

I just got a new book from the library that has helped inspire me to rededicate myself to my spiritual path (I seemed to take a bit of a break to fall in love and become a mother) it's Starhawk/Hillary Valentine's The Twelve Wild Swans, and I am really enjoying it. If you haven't seen it and are interested, it's basically a guidebook to Reclaiming-style ritual craft, like attending Witchcamp in book form and it just came out pretty recently. You can work through it on one of three different paths, depending on your level of experience.

I am so excited to be back and to find such an awesome resource in all of you! Thank you!

Thanks for the review of 12 wild swans. I've seen it at the bookstore but never picked it up. I'll check it out next time I'm there :-)

glad someone grought up date books/almanacs. I really like The Witches' Almanac~ The Complete Guide to Lunar Harmoney By Elisabeth Pepper. Comes out yearly in Spring.

Calendar books..........

For years I always got Celebrating Women's Spirituality for my working calendar book. Each year I'd cull my favorite quotes and poems from the previous years' and add them in various places to the new year's datebook(along with the important phone numbers...)

Then when I couldn't find that one, for about 3-4 years I got whatever datebook containing Susan Seddon Boulet's artwork was published. Those had a different theme each year: Mysteries, Passages...

This year I got the Bev Doolittle Engagement Datebook...not as spiritual, but I like her artwork too.

If I could find Celebrating Womens' Spirituality again, I'd probably go back to it.

Can I ask a simple little question? How does one pronounce "athame" or as I have seen it elsewhere "athalme"? When I don't have any contacts in my daily world I often get hung up on these old words that I see in print but have never heard pronounced. Didn't find success in the dictionary with this one and didn't want to start a whole thread on it! Thanks!

I'm really bad at typing pronunciation, but I'll give it a try and hope you know what I mean. ath a may .....I've never seen the one with the L in it, so I have no idea on that one. ANd I'm not Wiccan, nor do I use an athame so I'm not claiming to be an expert of it's pronunciation :-) maybe some who is Wiccan will come by and give us an official opinion??? :-)

Thanks for the pronounciation help Arduinna, that's what I was imagining, but sometimes it's hard to know. I don't use an athame either, but I'd like to know how to say the word in case I get inspired to journey in that direction!

Hey, just wanted to add Scott Cunninghams rereleased "Encyclopedia of Wicca in the Kitchen" to the list of resources, what a great book. Nearly 400 pages of food/cooking herbs/drink correspondences.
post #54 of 259
Excellent listings of resources. Y'all know I am exploring my spiritual options these days :

I really like the Paganism describe in a page I just read. How it was the religion of the native americans. That right there jives with us since Mark is native american! Plus I am the earth and animal lover at our house, so that aspect fits as well. I am having trouble with the Gods/Godess thing though.

How do you believe in them? What makes them real to you? SOrry if I am off topic here. Just really interested.

Hi DD,

THose are excellent questions. In fact, I think that could be a whole new thread :-). We have had discussions on pagan conceptions of deity but I don't think we have really gotten into what makes them real for us.

I'll start a topic on that, and bump some similar threads :-)

Well, our libraries suck!

I found one book about Wicca, and that was to strange for me. Had nothing about Paganism. Tried finding books on Pagan celebrations etc, and nothing. We will have to buy these books, or download them. mark found out through IRC that you can download full books! So I am going to ask him to look up some titles for me!

Thanks for the resources.

I know you have a 2 yo, DD, but if you ever get a break, what I do is go to Barnes and Nobles or Borders, get a stack of books, and sit and read for free. Once in a while I buy something, but as someone said, if you weren't supposed to use a bookstore as a library, why then do they have the comfy chairs and yummy drinks?
