Description: Founded by Andras Corban Arthen and Deirdre Pulgram Arthen in 1980, EarthSpirit serves Boston's large community of Pagans and organizes seasonal religious observances which are open to the community at large. They publish EarthSpirit, a newsletter for members and for the Pagan community, and offer public seasonal celebrations, concerts and monthly full moon rituals.
Activities and Schedule: EarthSpirit also holds four large annual ecospiritual conferences in May, July, October, and January. Of these the Rites of Spring, a week-long conference in May, is one of the oldest and largest Pagan festivals in the country, drawing 500-700 participants. To educate the public about Paganism and Witchcraft, EarthSpirit offers a wide range of workshops, lectures and classes, including a monthly study group. EarthSpirit also produces MotherTongue, a thirty-member ritual performance ensemble which includes choral singers, musicians, dancers, storytellers, poets, stage musicians and visual arts. MotherTongue has produced several recordings and has performed nationally at various conferences and interfaith forums, including the Parliament of the World's Religions in Chicago.
