Hello All! I Am currently doing a long piece of research and i am in need of your help!

I am a student conducting a Ethnographic study on Contemporary Paganism in our world today and i am hoping to get valuable feedback from communities like this that i can put to use and learn from while finishing this piece of work.

Paganism has long been an interest of mine and i recently was tasked to create a Ethnographic The branch of anthropology that deals with the scientific description of specific human cultures. Survey covering the Pagan religion.:thup:

What i was looking for is answers to a couple of formulated questions, as well as any additions of your own that you think could assist me in my task.  Anything and Everything is Welcome! :D:

  • When were you introduced to Paganism? (or a branch within)
  • When did you realize your faith?
  • How long have you praticed Paganism?
  • How often do you practice your belief?
  • Did you convert from another religion?
  • What does the Pagan Belief system give you?
  • What is the common response from those around you about your beliefs?
  • Are you open about your religious beliefs with outs (even strangers)?
  • If you weren't Pagan, what Religion or Belief system could you most relate to?
  • Comments on how Pagans are commonly misconstrued in society?
  • What are some of the rituals/ceremonies you engage in?

You can also, like mentioned above, add on any Q/A's that you think i might have overlooked.  Any feedback is good feedback ;)

Thanks and look forward to your response!

...the Pagan religion...

What does the Pagan Belief system give you?

Others may correct me if I've gotten it wrong, but I think your survey is going to have a problem because there is no "the Pagan religion".  Paganism is an umbrella term for a whole slew of different religious practices and beliefs, and your questions approach Paganism like we all have the same basic tenets, or core beliefs (especially the question quoted).
