A warm welcome from the Pagan community. We at Swansea University celebrate diversity, and acknowledge the faiths of all pagans, however they define. Paganism is a broad term to cover nature-based faiths and practices which honour the cycles of the earth, the sun, moon and stars. These can include, but are not limited to:
Wicca; Druidism/Druidry; Shamanism; Heathenry; Kemeticism; Ritual Magick; Goddess Spirituality; Reconstructionism and any self-defined pagan paths.
We promote diversity and inclusivity for all and support people of all genders and sexualities in their spiritual and social lives.
