Why We’re Reform Pagan

We draw profound inspiration from the vision of the Pagan Renewal: we think that Paganism has the power to transform ourselves and our world for the better, and we want to play an active role in bringing about that positive transformation.

We appreciate that people are social animals who come together whenever they want to accomplish something bigger than themselves—if we truly want to accomplish our ambitious mission of positive transformation, then we must not sequester ourselves as “solitaries” but join ourselves in fellowship. Our Paganism is not for ourselves alone.

And we believe that our shared labor toward positive transformation should include everyone, without requiring adherence to any specific metaphysical beliefs or spiritual practices.

While Reform Pagans generally find common ground in our Fifteen Theses and Five Elements, symbolized by our Shining Pentagram, we emphasize the open-minded cross-pollination of all traditions that serve to manifest our vision of positive transformation. The Unity Awen, a symbol of both the Pagan Reformation and the Pagan Restoration, together referred to as the Pagan Renewal, depicts Nature inspiring and unifying our diverse movement through one conviction, one vision, and one mission:

We affirm our conviction that all persons possess an innate spiritual capacity rooted in Nature.

We affirm our vision of humanity’s once and future faith, inspired by both ancient wisdom and modern learning, ever reforming for the present and the future.

We affirm our mission to promote the restoration of this timeless faith for the highest good of all.

By Power, Love, Truth, Life, and Divinity, may we be united in perfect peace and perfect trust.

So mote it be!
