Subject: RE: Pagan/Folk/Earth Music Reasearch Project
You may wish to search on the web for sites regarding Wicca, Celtic Shamanism, Druids, Water Worship, Fertility Ceremonies, Goddess Religions, Rites of the Norse and New World Religions (pre-christianity). Beware of any mention of heathens as most religions (especially the most dogmatic members) consider all others "heathens". Be also aware that some of the more authentic pagan rituals are a "bit" gruesome and not for kiddie bedtime tales or tunes. There is also interesting fare in the areas of myths regarding the orgins of earth and her people, hallucinogenic plants, core shamanism, and focal power points on earth.
