Who Are We?
|About EarthTides Pagan Network||The EarthTides Pagan Network was established in 1989 as a support resource for Maine’s Pagan community. This community is diverse, independent and geographically distant. We practice earth-based religions. Most of us express our faith in existing groups or as solitaries, but feel a need for contact and a shared forum to express opinions and concerns over issues bearing on the Pagan community.
EarthTides Pagan Network has worked hard on updating our website. We have created a place for sharing events, artwork, musings, photos ect. To connect, share and inspire the Maine Pagan Community.
We are always seeking Volunteers. to help at our events, to assist keeping our website running smoothly and creating connections for Pagans in the State of Maine!
We are undergoing some exciting changes, as we strengthen our healthy Connections as Maine Pagans. We are seeking volunteers, bloggers, artists and makers to create a hub here for Maine Pagans!
|Blog-Style Format||Maine is fortunate to have some amazing Pagan writers who regularly share their wisdom and ideas. We know there are many folks out there who would love to hear what they have to say. In order to widen our readership, we have decided to create a regularly updated blog on our website, and offer it free of charge.We are currently seeking Maine-based writers, Artists, Makers and Bloggers to contribute to the EarthTides website. Your contributions could be in the form of essays, reviews, poems, rituals, photos, links to existing blogs, and other terrific Pagan content. We hope you’ll check it out, and help us spread the word!|
|Maine Pagan Creators Wanted||We’re accepting Pagan-themed submissions of essays, art, fiction, poetry, rants, raves, reviews, existing blogs, and more. Please contact our webmaster, BlackLion, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Share your creativity with the Pagan community!|
|Statement of Ethics||The mission of the EarthTides Pagan Network is to provide opportunities for Pagan groups and solitaries in Maine to connect with each other in positive ways, to advocate for and educate about the Pagan religions, and to encourage and facilitate the ethical and honorable practice of those religions, without in any way limiting that freedom of choice which is so essential to our faiths.
This statement does not bind individuals to any living person, deity, pantheon, liturgy, expression of faith, or dogma. Rather, it signifies our wish to hold to a basic set of ethical behaviors.
EPN particularly respects the right of parents to direct the religious growth of minor children. Thus we support and encourage Pagan parents who choose to raise their children in our faiths. Out of respect for parents who are raising children in other faiths, EarthTides encourages members to directly consult with and seek written parental approval from a custodial parent when individuals under 18 years of age seek to attend Pagan gatherings or to study with members.
The following conduct will meet the standards for honest and fair practices of the EarthTides Pagan Network.
We are an Inclusive Organization, we welcome all!
