Neo-Paganism is often described as an “earth religion” or “nature religion”. It has also been called “the Green Party at prayer.” Most Neo-Pagans practice an earth-centered spirituality, which means they perceive the divine as manifest in the physical world. This is the quintessential component of a Neo-Pagan religious identity. Neo-Pagans valorize physical space as a vital element of spirituality and maintain a this-worldly focus in their religious lives. Modern life has the tendency to cut us off from kinship with the world of living nature, until we feel as if we are a cog in a great machine. Neo-Pagans seek to restore a sense of our oneness with nature through ritual and environmentally sustainable living.
