In a time when western culture has lost its sense of transcendence, dramatic rituals celebrating the turning of the season and the mysteries of sex, death and human existence provide deeply meaningful experiences to Pagans in Australia.
But there are great challenges inherent in practising this nature-based religion south of the equator.
Australia is Aboriginal sacred country. It is a vast continent with distinctly different seasons and ecosystems to those of the Northern Hemisphere.
In Under A Pagan Sky, Druids and Witches navigate these challenges to experience the sacredness of Mother Earth through community and ritual.
