Eco-Paganism

by Adrian Harris

  • What is Eco-Paganism?
  • Who are the Eco-Pagans?

    Ethnographic research has established that there is a distinct Eco-Pagan practice and sensibility (Clysdale, 2002; Harris, 1996 and 2001; Letcher 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005; Plows, 1998 and 2001; Westwood and Walbridge, n.d.) Eco-Paganism is a strand of Contemporary Paganism. Eco-Pagans partly express their spirituality through environmental activism and rituals of resistance. Most Eco-Pagans are environmental activists who were drawn to Paganism.

    In Eco-Pagan practice belief in the sacredness of nature becomes an embodiment of political commitment. As a result the sacred body is integrated in political strategies of resistance. Many Eco-Pagan beliefs are rooted in eco-philosophy, and elements of Deep Ecology and Eco-Feminism are especially evident. But Eco-Paganism is more than is an expression of a holistic belief system – it is a way of being-in-the-world. Eco-Pagan practice engenders subjective feelings of interconnectedness as well as inspiration to political activism. (Plows 1998b).
