December Moot - a chat by the fire.
Thank you Mooties - another splendid moot had by all. For a bit of a change we put questions into a 'hat' and then discussed each item as it was pulled out. We looked at how some of us placed more importance on the stones in Avebury, whilst others favoured the trees and wildlife. We questioned whether Paganism was just another form of religious control, talked about the pros and cons of guided meditation, about climate 'change' and even probed into the Angelic Reiki scene. And if that was not enough we also looked at: God and how 'he' might be included into one's spiritual path, how one might work with the Faeries, about vegetarianism and even about the possibility of recording future talks into podcasts... and much more.
Thank you everyone for turning up and for contributing to this month's moot - a blinder!
Some Videos and Links sprung to mind on some of the topics talked about.
The Author of the Vegetarian Myth (a challenging read for veggies like myself) - check Lierre Keith's site and read the first 20 pages of her thought provoking book here.
Here's a quick vid of her speaking as well.
The Anti Terrorist gives his spiritual take on life - sparked by the talk of life being a game that should be Played Well.
This is the fist part of a two parter - sometimes these lock up when you try and view them - simply reload browser and skip the first minute.
We mentioned Podcasts and also Neil Kramer so I'll point you towards his blog here.
He talks a lot about awakening of consciousness, imagination and transcending conspiracy... you can check out the talk below which was aired on Red Ice Creations a while back. Now Red Ice are cheeky and try and charge you for 2nd parters but you can find the rest of the talk on youtube
Finally, a nod towards Botany in a Day by Thomas J Elpel - a fantastic resource for you budding foragers.
Frank Cook (in the below vid) talks a lot about Elpels work...
Watch this space for a breakdown of Avebury during the Yule period... there's a lot happening.
