The Parliament of the World’s Religion wrapped up last Friday and by all Pagan accounts, of the event it was a resounding success.  This is the first article in a series covering the Parliament events from a Pagan point of view.

First, The Wild Hunt joins a chorus of Pagan voices congratulating Phyllis Curott, a Witch, attorney, author, and founder of the  Temple of Ara, who is a Trustee and was the Program Chair of the 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions.

“It was a wonderful & powerful Parliament!” said Rev. Selena Fox, senior minister and high priestess of Circle Sanctuary. Fox attended Parliament as a member of the Circle Sanctuary delegation.

Her colleague, Laura González added “As an Indigenous woman (Mexica), Chicagoan, and Pagan, it was truly an honor to lead the procession welcoming every person of all faiths represented at Parliament of the World’s Religions. My first in-person Parliament and it was truly a transformative experience. My eternal gratitude to Phyllis Curott for inviting me to be part of the procession and opening ceremony. Spiritual words were spoken in Nahuatl, Spanish, and English.”
