Community Notes; August 23-29

  • Isaac Bonewits passed from this plane on August 12. His influence will live on.


  • This year’s wonderful Sacred Harvest Fest had an attendance of 299 people, including 42 who came in Saturday for Ken Ra’s Grandfathering ritual (a truly moving experience for someone who deserves to be honored). Next year’s festival will be August 6-14, 2011, and the theme will be “Dreaming the Fae”.

  • *** THE NEXT BIG EVENT ***
    We’re coming up quickly on the No Need to Panic SPC Fund Raiser, Monday August 30. Last Year’s Sacred Paths Center fund raiser was such a success that they’re doing it again. There will be a silent auction, followed by a live auction for the items with the most bids. There will also be a Bowl Buy, and once you’ve bought the bowl you can fill it with yummy goodness. SPC is also accepting items for the auction and yummy things for the bowls (your best chili, soup, goulash, etc.)



  • The Upper Midwest Pagan Alliance will be getting a new stretch of Highway. As part of their mission, UMPA adopted a stretch of highway April 28th, 2008. This year they will be moving to a stretch of I35E which has more visibility, and will be easier to clean-up.


  • Grace Morgan is recovering well and will be hosting a free Intenders Seminar at the Sacred Paths Center, Wednesday August 25 at 7pm. “We understand that our desires are in us to be fulfilled and that our thoughts create our world. We support and help one another to become as clear as possible in our words and our thoughts so that we can live our lives to the fullest.”




  • There’s a new survey out attempting to understand Pagan attitudes toward health care. This survey is being conducted by Pagans for the sake of the American Public Health Association to, “help policy-makers and service providers understand our needs and beliefs.”  To take the survey, go here.
