An Introduction to Earth-Centered Religions
Joyce and River Higginbotham

The most comprehensive guide to one of humanity's oldest surviving faiths - study and rediscover the wonders of Paganism with this full resource in hand.


Product Description

Paganism, after thousands of years, is still one of the most popular religious traditions around the world today. Indeed, in many areas (like Northern Europe) it even appears to be undergoing a significant resurgence.

While there are many different forms and traditions within the umbrella of Paganism, there are a number of tentpoles that seem to ring true throughout the various forms: most notably, an intense connection between human beings and Earth.

If you’ve ever been curious about Paganism, or have been practicing for some time but would like to place your spirituality in a gerater context, Paganism: An Introduction to Earth-Centered Religions, written by Joyce and River Higginbotham, is the perfect place to start.

The guide is based on a Paganism course that the authors have taught for over 10 years. Paganism has become the quintessential book of its kind. Inside, you’ll find a number of exercises, meditations, and discussion questions for study.

As you turn each page, you’ll learn who Pagans are, how they live, what they believe, how they practice, what their ethical system is, and so much more.

The path to Paganism begins with this book

By Denise Patterson-Wells, Flint, MI

You know, there are a few kinds of books out there about Paganism. There are the books which detail rituals for any conceivable scenario you could run across and then there are great books like Paganism, an Introduction to Earth Centered Religions. What makes this book so great is that rather than providing stale, text book style, lists of pagan rituals, the authors have written a very warm and welcoming discussion of what it means to practice paganism. Joyce and River Higginbotham, provide the reader with exercises and journal entries, which really helped me as I first made my transition into Paganism. This book has changed the way I live my life and I always suggest it to friends who wants to learn more about Paganism, whether they're following the path of a Pagan or just curious.
