A Pagan is someone who celebrates nature in his or her spirituality, in tune with their connection to the Earth, the elements, the cycle of the moon, and the turning of the seasons. Pagans see nature as sacred. They strive to live in harmony with natural forces, and to honor the sacredness of their fellow human beings as well.
Modern Pagan religions reach back to ancient times to reconstruct older models of spirituality. Paganism is generally polytheistic (having more than one god), and embraces feminine & masculine forms of deity. Sometimes called Neo-Paganism to emphasize its connections to as well as differences from pre-Christian religions.
Pagans generally believe in personal responsibility and autonomy. Thousands of groups exist with varying emphasis on scholarly research into indigenous religious traditions. Most Pagans abide by some form of “If it harms none, do what you will.”
