More Programme Suggestions

Some more programme suggestions have been made through our public Yahoogroups list, our alumni discussion board, and in the comments section of the blog:
  • The aging Pagan population. What does this mean for our communities?
  • Mental illness and Pagan communities: What to watch out for, how to respond to it
  • Festivals... festival nightmares and how to avoid them
  • Indigenous North American religions and their relation to pagan consciousness. Are we too different?
  • Uniformed Pagans: Here or in Afghanistan/overseas
  • Ethnicity and Paganism. Do our pagan immigrants teach their children the Old Ways or the New Ways?
  • Participatory comparative tradition workshop or roundtable
  • Dealing with family members who are not pagan; coming out to family and friends
  • Ethics
  • Dealing with the Christian "right" (ie, managing interactions)
  • Finding a mentor/teacher; what to look for (or avoid) in potential teachers and mentors

Keep the ideas coming! Also, please let us know which topics that have been suggested are of most interest to you! This helps us best plan the programme that you, the participants, want to see.
