radical faerie spirituality

somebody asked on facebook about the spirituality of Faeries...

"Are RF's members of any certain Neo-Pagan tradition, or do they come from a variety of groups? I myself am a generic NP who doesn't do ritual per se. Wicca and Druidry attract me for various reasons, but not so sure about male-female polarity... If it were possible I'd join the Minoan Brotherhood, but alas they are not in my area."

here is a well thought out response...

"Some RF's might consider their spiritual beliefs to come from a Pagan or Neo Pagan perspective, as some might come from Buddhism, Hinduism, and even Christianity.

There is no particular religious (or secular) tradition that a RF must come from. Some are atheists or agnostic. Many pick and choose and self-create, sometimes on an ongoing basis.

With the possible exception of Christianity, I would say that the general attitude towards faith is pretty much live and let live.

Some places and times of gathering are more ritual oriented than others. Basically, it's a big old hodgepodge of spontaneous spiritual (and non-spiritual) expression and experimentation based on the intentions and proclivities of the individuals who happen to be around at the time."

If you have anything to add, please do so, pretend this is a heart circle, you have the talisman in your virtual hands...
