There are many important aspects to our spirituality, but some are more important than others. So many around us, on any spiritual path, focus so much on themselves that they neglect making the world a better place. 100 years from now, what impact will your spirituality show? Anything? Will it matter, in our real world? Here is an opportunity for us all!
Each of us can help make a brighter world for future generations by helping those around us learn, and that can be enhanced by either using, or contributing to, the many resources for teaching Atheopaganism (and Naturalistic Paganism)!
There is so much awesome and useful stuff here! From opening the door for kids to the awe and wonder of our incredible universe, to dealing with the reality of life and death, and so much more! Plus, it’s organized so you can find what you are looking for, using these categories:
The links are divided into four main topics:
- Knowledge and Discovery examines the sources of our knowledge and how we know what we know. Subjects under this topic include the scientific, critical thinking, debate and discussion, and more.
- The Universe studies the large body of knowledge about our planet and greater universe as discovered through scientific discovery. Subjects under this topic include physics, astronomy, mathematics, ecology, biology, and many more.
- Humanities looks to the products of human culture and imagination. Subjects under this topic include religion, archaeology, religion, art and more.
- The Self looks inward to understand and affect our minds and bodies. Subjects under this topic include neuroscience, psychology, self-reflection, meditation, ritual techniques and more.
From the announcement on the Atheopagan blog:
A new feature launched today at the Atheopagan Society website: a set of pages providing links to articles, videos, books, websites and other resources that may be useful to Atheopagans in developing their practices, homeschooling, research or simple reading interest. We are calling this collection, which will continue to grow over time, The Library.
The Library is an important step forward for our community because it offers a central repository for useful information that Atheopagans can draw on for years to come on subjects ranging from rituals to parenting to relationships to science and critical thinking curricula. It will offer creative opportunities to parents and teachers, serious works for study for adult students, and inspiration for us all.
Many thanks to Atheopagan Society Council member Robin C., who spearheaded this project and did hours of work developing the infrastructure for it, and to the whole Society Education Committee. Go check it out!
