DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45478


Contemporary Paganism is often described as a “nature religion”, which emphasises a deep connection with the natural world, influenced by Romantic ideals. Pagans engage in environmental ethics, strive for harmony with the earth, and view nature as encompassing body, planetary and cosmic levels. This spiritual approach integrates environmental activism and personal expression through practices that align with natural cycles and the broader universe.
