    Welcome, Letter From the Assistant Editor

    During this past month, Pagan Pages received several emails on our myspace account from an employee seeking our assistance in boycotting a store.  She stated several reasons for her boycott, but only one reason was really true and it had nothing to do with wearing a pentagram. For legal reasons that is all I can say regarding that issue. It is our understanding that the comments were then posted on another forum and was left for discussion without the forum really knowing if the facts were true or not.  For those that knew of this situation, realize we have been in contact with the company there I can assure you…

    “BREAK IN THE CLOUDS” CD “Break In The Clouds” 2006, a collection of songs each telling a story about hope, renewal, love, finding one-self, being at peace with what you find, and the journey in between.  The instrumental music alone is extremely well worth taking the time to listen to.  There are a couple of songs one in particular Goddess of Mercy that I found easy to use while meditating and “Lullaby”, a easy simple soft tune one I use to ease myself with and I love the instrumentals in it.  The entire CD has several sections where the talents of the artist are proven over and over again.  While…

    CrossRoads by Jenna Greene

    “CrossRoads,” her debut cd and what a debut cd it is.   A collection of Celtic original songs each one telling a story clearly and beautifully written and sung so gloriously that it makes you want to stop and enjoy what you hear.  Keep in mind that these are not traditional Celtic songs which is why I am so thrilled with them.  They have the Celtic flair, they have the history but with a twist. Jenna is also currently working on her second CD, “Dance of the Goddess,” “ which explores the many aspects of the divine feminine.  It honors the spiritual teachers who have inspired her writings, including Joseph Campbell,…

    Review Dancing the Goddess Incarnate by Kristin Madden & Dorothy Morrison

    Dancing the Goddess Incarnate Authors Kristin Madden, and Dorothy Morrison ISBN  0738706361   $14.95 I have read several books with regard to the Maiden, Mother and the Crone and all gracious in their right.  But “Dancing the Goddess Incarnate” is one book I truly believe every Goddess out there should have in her collection.  While I am well versed on Goddesses I am far perfect on all Goddesses and I will admit there are times I am not so forth coming on being myself and I stay very reserved being an adult.  After the first chapter getting to know Tatiana, I am no longer shy, quiet, withdrawn and I DANCE!!!!!!

    Music Artists KIVA

    Kiva’s cd “Out of the Corner of the Eye” is their ninth recording since the bands birth in 1990.  The cd is a collaboration of songs based on fey folk and the world they dwell in.    The band, with talented guest and a specialized set of instruments (cello, guitar, flutes, didgeridoo, violin, bass, and mandolin) recreated a world many of us wondered about and wish we were actually living in.  With each song and story being told you can feel yourself being swept into the story as if Alice in Wonderland. While listening to the music and lyrics I am easily reminded of being back in the Renaissance perhaps of…

    Jack Montgomery

    Everywhere I Look by Jack Montgomery – a truly impressionable cd, the 1st song “ Next to You” quickly became my new love song. http://cdbaby.com/mp3lofi/jackmontgomery2-01.m3u This collaboration of songs contains every genre from country, Celtic, folk rock, the blues to even a love song.  You can’t help but even do a little toe tapping. I was very impressed with Mr. Montgomery’s Roots of Oak, and his song Reflection will definitely make you stop and think and appreciate what you have in life right now.  For those of you who enjoy folk music with a twist this is a must have.  He has a smooth voice that at first I couldn’t…
