Sapphire Moon is a circle of 6 different resource sites dedicated to the neoPagan community and includes the WebWeaver Pagan Search (“the largest human-edited, Pagan-oriented search engine on the net”).  It resembles the Yahoo home page in that categories for searching are broken into useful categories and subcategories, plus there is a search bar to find specific names or keywords. I have a listing in the Visual Arts section and you are invited to come and rate my site.

A long-running annual ritual retreat that focuses on serious inner and group magical work. Different from other festivals for this reason.  Attendance is kept low in order to "maintain a stronger sense of community and connectedness for everyone involved."

The Granddaddy of all (meta) Pagan festivals; presented by A.C.E. (Association for Consciousness Exploration). A mindblowing hedonistic, celebratory temporary autonomous zone with one of the biggest bonfires I ever saw (back in 1997)-- with thousands of people dancing around it. Still going, stronger than ever. Everyone into this scene should go at least once.

Francesca De Grandis, Feri shaman and author, sets forth a new vision calling the “Fey-touched” who are “awakening in greater numbers than ever” to come together in a new kind of unity: “a mystical global village” open to “...lovers, warriors, mere children and elders, cats in disguise and mixed-blood humans, wolves, bards, dragons, gardeners, herbalists, corporate executives, changelings, tricksters, moon-children, star-children, and techno-pagans, oh, and so many others....” Faery Nation publishes a magazine dedicated to creative change, fae madness, and positive conspiracy: check it out! Francesca’s vision is interactive and co-creative: if you feel touched by any part of it, reach out to your shaping touches into the dream. The very idea of magical tribe is being reborn.

"We are a Chicago-based collective of musicians, actors, dancers, poets, magicians, and fire performers; creating, producing, and performing experiential works of music, theatre, and performance art that are rooted in the Earth mysteries." The Myspace page has samples of original music from the 2008 Production, In Betwixt and In Between, of which the Hymn to Dionysus is my personal favorite.

Recently I was turned on to a new online publication called COREOPSIS: A Journal of Myth and Theatre, for which I may eventually become an artistic contributor and maybe even peer reviewer. Its founder and editor, Lezlie Kinyon, Ph. D., has created a broad-ranging and ambitious vehicle for *academic* peer-reviewed work... on myth and theater: some of its range can be grasped in the following excerpt from the submission guidelines:

"Articles, essays, and book, audio recording or performance reviews on any aspect of folk, mythic, and ritual theatre are accepted for peer review and eventual publication. Because this is a based publication, "any aspect" includes classic, modern, and folk theatre, other types of performance including music, dance, drama and comedy; theatrical-based research, musicology, faerie lore, folklore, historical and anthropological research, theological aspects, mythopoetic analysis, shamanic and dream research, art, artistic considerations, and the technical aspects of mounting productions through history and across cultures."

Not only that, but plans are in motion for "SpiritMasque: The 2009 - [2010 -ed.], 1st annual Ritual Theater Conference: Across Time and Culture presented by the Society for the Preservation and Understanding of Ritual Theater (SPURT)."
