  • Vendor Highlight: The Oak and the Ivy Healing Services

    Vancouver Island Pagan Pride welcomes The Oak and the Ivy Healing Services!  

    We believe that what you create inside yourself, manifests outside yourself. With this in mind, we know that chronic stress is linked to the 6 top leading causes of death today, and affects all levels of health. In this age of constant pressure, self-care has never been more important.  We’d like to help you with that! With a combined 30 years of experience, we customize treatments Reiki, Sekhmet, and Crystal Therapy, can offer insight and also counselling. While we specialize in chronic pain issues, we can typically help in most situations. We also sell items that are complementary to healing, such as crystals, meditation aids, jewelry and more.

    You can visit Oak and Ivy Healing Services on Pagan Pride Day on August 11th and on the web at http://oakandivy.wixsite.com/oakandivy

  • Today is the Day! Hip, Hip, Hooray!

    This is it! It’s so exciting! We’ve been working for months, and the day is finally here.

    vippd poster 2016Vancouver Island Pagan Pride Day Gives Back to the Comox Valley – On Saturday, August 12th, Lewis Park will host the 13th Annual Vancouver Island Pagan Pride Day.

    Vendors, artisans, and spiritual groups from all over Vancouver Island will come together to celebrate diversity in spirituality. Pagan Pride Day is an international project that promotes tolerance and understanding between people with different belief systems through education, activism, charity and community.

    The time of year is carefully chosen to celebrate the harvest and share the fruits of our efforts with our community. Each year the Pagan Pride committee chooses charitable organizations that have a positive effect in the community and dedicates its hard work and energy towards raising donations for those organizations.  This year Pagan Pride is excited to be collecting donations and non-perishable food items for Greenways Land Trust and the Comox Valley Food Bank. Last year’s event saw $300 raised for both MARS Wildlife Rescue Society and the Comox Valley Food Bank. Vancouver Island Pride Day aims to show the public what Paganism is about through a daylong collection of workshops, rituals and demonstrations.

    It’s also a time for the Pagan community to come together and celebrate our diversity with live entertainment and vendor tables with goods and services from pagan or pagan friendly businesses and organizations. “It’s going to be challenging to top last year’s event, but we have a great team.”

    “We’re all looking forward to connecting with and contributing to the community,” says Mary Malinski, High Priestess of the Circle of the Sacred Muse and Maiden of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church of Canada.

    The 13th annual Vancouver Island Pagan Pride Day will be held on Saturday, August 12th at Lewis Park from 10 am to 4 pm. The event is open to everyone and admission is free, though donations for the Food Bank and Greenways Land Trust are highly encouraged.
