Spiral Circle 13 Step Recovery Group
The Universal Society of Ancient Ministry in cooperation with Crystal Pathways will holding their first Pagan 12 Step program on June 2nd, 2014
This event is a support group aimed at Pagans who may feel uncomfortable in traditional 12 step settings. The goals of this group range from support and healing to educating ourselves about the sickness that we are working to overcome. The doors are open to anyone who needs support in any area of addiction and there is no minimum clean time required. The group will be self guided and is by no means meant to replace professional help for those who feel they need it. Our initial meetings will be aimed at finding a system that feels comfortable for all those involved so please bring yourself and your ideas. Keeping with our traditions this group will be open to people of all paths but the focus will be Earth or Goddess based. It is also important to note that we will be respecting the anonymity of people involved so do not worry about reserving on meetup.

The White Goddess by Robert Graves
The White Goddess is a key book for modern Pagans and Wiccans. Subtitled ‘A Historical Grammar of Poetic Myth’, Robert Graves investigates the links between poetry, mythology and the worship of the Goddess. The White Goddess had a profound influence on Gerald Gardner, the modern reinventor of Paganism.
The White Goddess was one of the first widely available books which uncompromisingly advocated a Goddess-centered spirituality. It builds on Frazier’s Golden Bough, but written from the point of view of a working poet struggling to reconcile the ancient crafts of poetry and mythology with the brutality of the twentieth century. Although it is a ‘difficult book’ it will also prove very rewarding. It does not provide details of ancient rituals or try to reinvent them for a modern context; rather it gives details on the profound links between ancient runic alphabets, mysterious (and previously unexplained) Drudic and Bardic poetry and the Celtic lunar year. It bears the same relation to more practical books about Wicca as a theoretical physics textbook does to a users’ manual for a computer. Reading the White Goddess will enhance your understanding of Wicca by giving you deep background on the craft.

The Religion of the Ancient Celts
By J. A. MacCulloch
This book is one of the best scholarly treatments of the ancient Celtic religion. Written early in the 20th Century, Religion of the Ancient Celts includes extensive treatment of that perennially fascinating subject, the Druids.
MacCullough details the Celtic belief in reincarnation and a spectral otherworld; documents the enormous pantheon of now-obscure gods and goddesses, including many local deities; and describes totemistic and animistic beliefs. In addition, MacCulloch does not flinch (nor sensationalize) when describing the darker side of Celtic practices, including the famous ‘Burning Man’ human sacrifices, cannibalism and exogamous incest.
