All You Want to Know about Pan Society- Ask Cherie

All You Want to Know about Pan Society- Ask Cherie

June 19, 2019

Today we talk with Cherie Calvert, owner of The Dancing Magpie- a boutique for handcrafted natural bath, body, and health products, an animist since birth, and founding board member of Pan Society, LTD. Cherie answers listener questions.

Is Pan Society a cult?

Are you witches?

Why are so many hippies and polyamourous people attracted to paganism? Is that what Pan Society is about?

I am attracted to another culture that I lived in in a past life. How can I connect with those ancestors?

I am attracted to shamanism, but heard to stay away from Michael Harner's books. Is there a path that you would recommend instead?

A psychic told me that I am a shaman. How can I validate this?

Is everybody a shaman?

What's the Pan position on assisted suicide?

I would love to go to a moon circle, but there isn't one near me. Is there something else that is similar?

I live in the city. There isn't a lot of nature here. Can you tell me why you guys focus so much on nature and give me some ideas how to get that vibe when you live in the city?

How important is meditation to a spiritual practice? I don't find it easy. Is there something else I can do?

I am still not understanding what sovereignty means. Can you explain it?

How did Pan Society choose the holy days? What makes them special?

I am an empath. I want to be in community with other people, but I pick up their stuff and it just becomes too overwhelming. How can I be with my tribe when I can't tolerate people?

I like the ideas of Pan Society, but I realize I have a lot of religious baggage and am not comfortable with rituals. How important is this to being an animist?

Do you have any advice on how to choose a drum for ritual purposes?

Is it more powerful to do group rituals or solo ones?

What's a light worker? How do I know if I am one?

How do you feel about cursing and spirituality?

I am in love with someone who is not spiritual. He isn't against spirituality, but he doesn't support it either. Does this relationship have a chance?

What You Need to Know to Convert to Animism

May 22, 2019

We all are influenced by our culture. When you live in a Judeo-Christian society, you pick up Judeo-Christian values. That won't work in animism because things will get lost in translation and you won't really understand. Today we look at some examples of what this means.
