"A clear idea of the nature of the magical Egregore, or group form, should be built up in the mind in order that the aspirant may understand what part he plays in the whole complex scheme, and thereby may know how closely he is guided and aided in his chosen work."
But, in my experience, Paganism as it exists today in America (I can't rightly speak to any communities outside my own country so I won't), is not by and large a countercultural set of religions (I realize that there are traditions that have at their core a radical, progressive political agenda and I grok that, but I am talking about my impressions of Paganism as a whole …. the contemporary Egregore of the thing, if you will … and many won't agree, I recognize).
