Resources & Links
Although our world has become more progressive in decades past, it can still be difficult to find professional services that are Pagan-friendly - people that are sensitive to our unique spiritual situations, experiences, and needs. Below are links to various businesses and services that our members have found to be open to and supportive of Pagan clients.
Also included are local Pagan clergy, as well as spiritual products and services.
Also also included is a Suggested Reading list, which we recently put together at the request of the Cohoes Public Library - we are always accepting suggestions to add to this list, so feel free to let us know what you think.
Do you know a business or individual who should be on this list? Contact us!
