Nature Religions?
By:
Post # 1
I understand that when most people think of 'nature based' religions, they think of wicca. However I am totally aware that wicca is not a nature based religion, but has a strong respect for it. What kinds of religions actually focus more on nature, that believe in nature? I've always been curious about that.

Nature is the driving force regarding Druidry. Though as said, there are few references available. There are few books on them as well. If you are interested in learning about their affinity for nature itself, I suggest a book called 'Lessons of Merlin'. Notice that this book has terrible reviews, but using that as an excuse to not read it is taking the word of many people who don't understand the true nature of magic itself, let alone the fact that each chapter ends with a summary, with pictures and references to help with comprehension.. Its a lovely story too.

are you looking for a religion that has a strong respect for nature and observes the seasons or a religion that prays to trees instead of Gods? most pagan paths like Wicca observe the changes and tries to live in balance with nature, but no Wiccan i know prays to grass for help. there are a number of religions that lean towards nature as being a key component of their path [wicca, shamanism, druidism, there's also those who work with nature spirits]

You might want to look into Animism. Animists believe that everything is alive and has a soul, even things such as trees, rocks, etc. Literally they see a soul in all of Creation and therefore all things partake of the Divine.

I agree with Lark.

Honestly, a good bit of pagan religions have some aspect of nature worship. Like in Norse polytheism, one could honor the land spirits, and sometimes the land spirits are involved in the rites. There are also deities in the pantheon involved with nature.

In Hellenic Polytheism, Nymphs (of all types) and other nature gods (such as satyrs) are worshiped as well as Gods involved in vegetation, animals, and fertility such as Demeter, Dionysus, Artemis, Pan, and Persephone. I'm sure there are others as well. And there are more than just these faiths.

It's whatever you decide to look into, and the way you structure your own religious practices and beliefs. If you'd like, just give small offerings to nature, anything biodegradable and non harmful to any wildlife (water is a great libation), or do devotions such as picking up liter or tending a garden.

@ Graywitch, is anyone attacking your views? you've said three times you worship nature as a pagan. i haven't seen anyone say you specifically are wrong. i don't personally know any Wiccans who work with nature spirits [unless fae count] but i have read a couple books and articles about people who work with nature spirits specific to their religion/heritage. it is possible, and if you do good for you. the thing is Wicca as a religion does not worship nature, it works in harmony with nature [as far as i'm aware anyway] should your Wiccan path include working with nature spirits, fine, you really don't have to defend yourself simply because people have mentioned other paths and views.
