Pagan Pride Day Hamilton

pagan Pride Day Hamilton Harvestfest's primary goal is to educate the public about Paganism. As such, the festival centres on a series of religious ceremonies. But that's not all that you will see! In addition to the ceremonies there will be workshops on a variety of subjects related to health and well-being, both spiritual and physical, vendors displaying their products, live entertainment and activities for the kids.

 

What is a Pagan?

The following definition is for the purposes of the Pagan Pride Project. Others may define themselves or their group in different ways, and that's OK. Some groups that fit the categories we list may not call themselves Pagan, and that's ok too - that's why we say that first and foremost the definition of a Pagan is someone who self-identifies as a Pagan.

But the following was created in order to have a functional definition to help educate the public about the spiritual paths we cover:



A Pagan or NeoPagan is someone who self-identifies as a Pagan, and whose spiritual or religious practice or belief fits into one or more of the following categories:

• Honoring, revering, or worshipping a Deity or Deities found in pre-Christian, classical, aboriginal, or tribal mythology; and/or

• Practicing religion or spirituality based upon shamanism, shamanic, or magickal practices; and/or

• Creating new religion based on past Pagan religions and/or futuristic views of society, community, and/or ecology; and/or

• Focusing religious or spiritual attention primarily on the Divine Feminine.
