Exploring Paganism

Exploring Paganism Perhaps one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented of all spiritual paths, paganism is the most ancient religious practice. The AIB Network shares stories of contemporary practitioners of the faith, some of whom cannot be shown because they feel they must remain "broom closeted" due to the nature of their jobs or family relationships. They relate deeply personal spiritual journey stories, as well as provide explanations of beliefs and rituals. To tell the story, the AIB Network was welcomed into the Willow Dragonstone Community, which is considered an open group, and spoke extensively with Lydia Crabtree, a pagan minister and the author of "Family Coven: Birthing Hereditary Witchcraft." Dia is also founder of Pagan Pro (www.paganpro.org)
