Gaian Times Initiatives. Gaian Times was conceived as more than just a Magazine. It’s been registered as a not for profit Company so that many initiatives can be channelled through it. Here are some of them.
All about Gaia- Goddess to Galactic Collective (part 1). From Homer’s poems, to being a minor deity in ancient mythology, Gaia has surfaced as postulate and then as theory of James Lovelock. If it is true, then we ask the question of how far the Gaian Collective will evolve.
Repealing of the Witchcraft Act. 60 years on, how has this changed the practise of Witchcraft? If movies and TV programmes are anything to go by, what can we expect? We give a nod towards the previous versions of Law that contained the Witchcraft Act in its many forms.
Spells Magic and Human Desperation. Vathani Navasothy is a professional Counsellor, Psychologist, Food Disorder therapist, Hypnotis and a published author. She is hired to give talks and training to School teachers & Hospital nurses. Here she gives her take on Human desperation of a magical kind.

The Work of Maureen Brown. Maureen Brown realised that psychology was and is one of the most powerful tools of the Craft and integral with it. She began her studies in Transpersonal Psychology, opening up for her *trainees the magical gates to the avenues to find our own sense of power. Hazel O’Flaherty who studied under and lived with Maureen in her final years, writes about Maureen’s work! [*Editor of Gaian Times, Mani, is also one of Maureen’s students].
Royal Wedding and the place of King in modern mythology (Social network discussion). Is it true that the land and the King are One? What about that old myth that someone must do a Hern-ritual in Windsor Park every year for the country to remain well? Is anyone doing it? Question, thought provoking debates and insights!
An Eco-Magical Questionnaire. Reggie has been so well known for asking speakers the type of questions that stops them dead in their track. These have come to be known as the `Reggie Questions’. Here, he asks not just one but a whole array of them! Dare you answer?
