HI!! I'm Elena - the Secretary for Pagan Society. I'm going to just fill you all in on what's happened in the last month.
Intro Night - We had a great time, seeing old and new pagan soccers. All having a good laugh and a pint at the Bitter Suite ;P It was great fun, and I'm hoping that everyone else thought so too. But...that was about it...we sat there and talked, had a laugh and were merry. ^-^
Second Talk - this was done by Sandra from Shared Earth and it was a talk on Wicca. It was very interesting as she didn't do a stereotypical talk of 'this is wicca, blah, blah, blah' kind of thing. She actually shared her experiences and why she chose the path of Wicca. It was also great to see that she was so ecclectic when it came to the different deities. Many people told me after her talk, that it was interesting and had piqued their curiosity, as well as mine, which is always a good thing.
Third Talk - This talk was on Dreams, and was done by John. This, again, was very interesting. Having previously been to his talk on dreams, I liked to see the differences. Other people found it very interesting also, for example, one person told me that they had never considered that dreams. Pretty sure everyone took something interesting from the talk and will use it later on. Once again, we were down at the Moorbrook after that ;P
River Ramble - So instead of a talk, we had a guided walk along the River Ribble. Lorna very kindly guided us around the river with interesting snippets of history and pagan history. We were walking for about 5 hours, and all got covered in mud, but we came back with bright eyes and bushy tails. It was a fantastic day and the weather helped too xP
So far then, the first month of Pagan Society has been a success in my opinion, and am looking forward to what else we have in store for everyone ^-^
