Pagan is the broad term used to describe any religion or belief that is not
Christian, Jewish or Muslim. Paganism can be traced back to Neolithic times

enough to erase it from existence. Paganism is an earth based religion
which lays emphasis on the worship of all aspects of nature. Paganism
appeared very early on in the history of the world. Examples of early
paganism, can be seen in ancient Greek and Roman religions, as well as in
ancient Goddess worship and Druidic religions.

of life, singer of Earth and Time, dancer of wholeness, she who weaves
breath: "As My priestess, you are charged with the care of hearts and
the guardianship of life-roads. To you I give the gift of the steady foot,
to walk the path of life with those who ask you to accompany them. I give
the gift of legs strong enough for the journey, and wise enough to know
when to sit down and talk with your fellow journeyers, and when to halt and
suggest that they reconsider their way, asking one another, their own
hearts and the path itself for direction."
