Book Review By Valna Asterman
Have you Read???
Today I will share with you one of my favorite resources for the pagan community...Drawing Down the Moon by Margot Adler. The first edition came out in the late 1970s. The second edition was released in the mid 1980s and the latest edition was printed in the mid 2000s. What makes this book such a remarkable resource is the amazing lists of pagan leaders and groups in the USA. Our wonderful Judy Carrosone, who refused to let CMA fade away during our first decade, had a delightful article about her and CMA. There are stories about the “Radical Fairies”, “The Church of all Worlds” and many of the leaders who are no longer with us. Each edition was edited and the latest has information about the new groups and new pagan leaders. And guess who is the first group listed in the latest edition? That's correct...CMA is the first group listed in the resource for groups in the USA.
If you're new to Paganism or if you'd like to look up groups you can visit across the USA, this is the best reference you can get. I found it on Amazon.com!
May you have a blessed Season... I look forward to seeing you at Beltaine.
In service to the Goddess in all her many forms.
