           ABOUT THE PAGAN FESTIVAL

           The Pagan Festival brings together brothers and sisters of ALL indigenous,
           Earth-based, and nature centered polytheistic beliefs in pride and celebra-
           tion, as well as those who support arts, music, ceremony, theater and dance
within the Interfaith Pagan Community. In doing so, we unite in our message to the
world that we must live together in love and tolerance, as opposed to fear and misun-
derstanding, as voices in the great choir of Spirit.


A LETTER FROM OUR DIRECTOR
Welcome to the Fifth Annual Pagan Festival and Parade. This year’s theme is Evolving Spirit-
how technology affects the way we connect with others and practice our spirituality. One of
our altarists, Rabbit, through her description of her gift of the East Altar, expresses this year’s
theme in the following:

  “The East is the direction of Air, breath, the rising sun and new beginnings. It
  is the spark of an idea and the creative communication that helps move that idea
  into reality. It is the direction of cutting edge technology and passionate dis-
  course about the ethics of technology as it develops. Today, there is much dis-
  cussion among the powers that be about who “owns” the airways, how many of
  our conversations may be listened to, how private our private communications
  really are. This argument is merely the continuation of an age-old debate about
  who owns the Earth, her body and atmosphere. As Pagans, we know that the
  Earth belongs to herself, and that we are her privileged stewards. It is easier for
  us to create a stewardship community if we know about one another’s individual
  efforts! So many Pagans who were formerly isolated in remote areas, or living
  as solitaries in urban areas for fear of being ridiculed or persecuted, have found
  community on the Internet. The developing means of online communication
  allow us to connect, to share, to challenge one another, and to ultimately know
  we are not alone. It is a great gift that begs the question, “How does cyberspace,
  with all its plastic and man-made circuitry, fit in with our dedication to caring
  for the Earth?”
Her altar is inspired by Richard Brautigan’s poem “All Watched Over By Machines
of Loving Grace” which, as she explains “is an exploration of the possibility that technology
and nature may peacefully co-exist as long as we all agree to detach from the
selfishness of ownership, and instead focus on how these tools may serve
us in our quest to care for the planet as we evolve.”

Our theme should inspire us to ask ourselves “How does technology allow us to be better
stewards of the Earth?” And “How do we integrate technology in creating ritual and living
magical lives? And “In what ways do we use technology to continue to connect with the Di-
vine? And “How does technology help us teach our children to live full and spiritual lives?”

Please take time today to experience the altars, participate in ritual, communicate with others,
learn from the speakers, appreciate the performers, and visit the vendors and information
booths to become inspired in new ways to continue on your path with the Divine.

Merry May and Beltane Blessings,
Arlynne Camire-Director
Pagan Festival & Pagan Alliance.
                                         ABOUT THE PAGAN ALLIANCE
The mission of the Pagan Alliance is to educate our communities and the general
public; to promote acceptance of our faiths and traditions; to connect our com-
munities; and to celebrate our spiritual diversity. We recognize the dire need to unite
based on concern for the current ecological crisis that faces our Mother Earth.

The Pagan Alliance began in 2001 as the Interfaith Pagan Pride Parade and Celebra-
tion. The original parade was modeled after the “Return of the Snakes” parades
seen in Ireland by one of the founders while vacationing on St. Patrick’s Day.

In 2004, the organization made some changes, including changing our name to The
Pagan Alliance. We want to further emphasize our collective mission to provide a
place for the Pagan community to come together to jointly, educate the public in
an attempt to change the public’s view of Paganism, as well as to make room in
our name for events beyond the annual
parade and festival.
                                               For More Information:
Today, the organization has evolved into       www.thepaganalliance.org
a bright and shining example of coop-          2410 Byron Avenue
eration and celebration of Earth-based;        Berkeley, CA 94702
nature and justice centered; and poly-         (510) 872-1188
theistic faiths and traditions. Endorsed
by the Interfaith Center at the Presidio,
the Alameda Green Party, San Francisco
LGBT Pride Parade and Celebration,
Council Members Kriss Worthington
and Dona Spring of Berkeley, Covenant
of the Goddess, and Reclaiming, this
event has become a blossoming new
tradition that brings together commu-
nity, family, friends, and neighbors to cel-
ebrate the ‘Spirit’ of all living beings and
Mother Earth.
                                                                                          www.thepaganalliance.org



The Pagan Alliance is committed to edu-
cation of the general public with the in-
tention of changing public views, opinions and response to the Pagan Community.
We will present workshops and a ‘Speakers Series’, presenting different traditions.
We hope this will lead to the creation of increased acceptance and understanding,
and dispel common misconceptions. We are committed to justice and eliminating
prejudice and ignorance in all communities, including accepting all across ethnic
backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, age and class affiliations. We
are also committed to incorporating deep ecology into the ‘Speakers Series’. We
sponsor activities and events that reflect how our traditions are supportive and in
tune with Nature, and play a positive role in healing human’s relationship with the
Earth.

Eris Discordia Altar
By Ceilidh Chaos, and other Discordians, Erisians & Radical Faeries
Eris Discordia is the Graeco-Roman Goddess of Chaos. An apple of discord is a reference to the
Golden Apple of Discord which, according to Greek mythology, the goddess Eris had engraved
with the word ‘Kallisti” which means “to the fairest of them all” and threw into the crowd at the
wedding of Peleus and Thetis, a party which Eris crashed by the way, sparking a vanity-fueled
dispute between Hera, Pallas Athene and Aphrodite that eventually led to the Trojan War. 5 is
Eris’ Sacred Number, so this year, being the 5th Pagan Festival, we’d like to acknowledge her. Hail
Eris! Hail Discordia!

Kali
By SHARANYA is a unique 501(c)3 religious organization and devi mandir (goddess temple)
dedicated to an embodied and engaged spirituality that facilitates the life-affirming transforma-
tion of individuals, communities and our world. www.sharanya.org Our altar combines contem-
porary and traditional items and art that reflects the intersection of modern technology with
ancient spiritual practices. We seek to illustrate the many ways Kali manifests Herself in this
world, both past and present...Jai Maa!

SpiralScouts International
                            SpiralScouts International, a program for girls
                            and boys of minority faiths working, growing
                            and learning together debuted in February of
                            2001. SpiralScouts began as an organized chil-
                            dren’s program within the Aquarian Tabernacle
                            Church (ATC).

                            Word of the program spread and the ATC formal-
                            ized SpiralScouts into an expanded program now
                            available to anyone worldwide.The program has
                           a unique approach to youth programming. Each
group is led by both a male and a female adult, to achieve and teach the
balance that is so central to Earth-centered beliefs. While SpiralScouts was
developed on Pagan beliefs and practices, it is designed to be adaptable
by other minority faiths as well. In addition to traditional woodland lore,
camping and the outdoor living skills, the program includes teaching the
many mythologies of the ancient world. Uniquely, it includes a component
new to youth group programming - life strategies and skills for teens, to
help them learn early how to have good relationships with their peers and
adults, and interpersonal skills that will serve them throughout their adult
lives.

The Pagan Alliance is sponsoring a new East Bay-based circle. We are look-
ing for interested children/families, as well as a adult male co-leader. Please
contact johanna@thepaganalliance.org for more info!

The 8th Annual Ardenwood
Celtic Festival promises a full day
of fun for lovers of music, dance,
and the history and mythology
of Ireland through the ages. This
is an outing for the whole family
with plenty to entertain visitors
from eight to eighty!




Druid Sisters Tea Party will mesmerize audiences with a wide range of traditional
and tribal Celtic rock. Other groups such as Tinkers Damm, Celtic Junket, and San
Francisco Scottish Fiddlers offer traditional music from Ireland and Scotland. Ancient
Romans and Celts, Mary Queen of Scots, Highland Warrior sword fighting, Irish step
dancing, Belly dancing at the Gypsy camp, The Prince Charles Pipe Band, and Claude
the fire breathing dragon are only a few of the attractions and entertainments to be
enjoyed.

East Bay Regional Parks and Wee Hand Productions are once again joining forces
to bring this popular event to life at Ardenwood Historic Farms. Lively step dancers,
singers and musicians will provide continuous entertainment on four separate stages
located on Ardenwood’s extensive grounds. Living history reenactors inhabit a variety
of centuries in their various encampments and period clothing. The young at heart
will enjoy a Haggis Toss, face painting, story telling, and sword play.
