Call for submissions: “Death and Life”

Our late autumn theme is “Death and Life”.  

“Death and Life” by Gustav Klimt (1916)

Ernest Becker wrote in The Denial of Death:

“The idea of death, the fear of it, haunts the human animal like nothing else; it is a mainspring of human activity — designed largely to avoid the fatality of death, to overcome it by denying in some way that it is the final destiny of man.”

What place does death have in a Naturalistic Pagan practice?  What meaning does the fact of our mortality give to our lives?  What depth does it bring to our spirituality?

Send your writing and art to humanisticpaganism [at]  Submissions need to be received by November 6.
