The 1st Pagan Church of All Worlds
I've been a (somewhat inactive) member of this since 1991. I first visited the land where Oberon, Morning Glory, and some of the other founders lived in 1989. I remember dancing as the Green Man in the Lugnasad ritual down by the stream. The mission of the Church of All Worlds is 'to evolve a network of information, mythology and experience that provides a context and stimulus for re-awakening Gaea, and re-uniting her children through tribal community dedicated to responsible stewardship and evolving consciousness.' Sounds good enough to me.

Shamanism introductory article
A good 'find' on the web - a one page overview of 'an ancient tribal practice in a modern industrial world' - Shamanism. By Karen Berggren.

Leslie Kenton's Shamanic work
Leslie Kenton, bettter known for her work with health and beauty, has more recently undertaken in-depth training with the world authority on Shamanism, Dr Michael Harner and other experts in the field. She has developed her own Journey to Freedom workshops (there's also a great book by the same name) which uses ancient shamanic traditions to 'help people enhance health, creativity and personal power as well as to live more fully their individual truth.' They 'combine shamanism together with tools from mythology, leading-edge physics, biology, systems theory and the rapidly developing science of consciousness itself.'

The Order Of The Sacred Grove
The Order of the Sacred Grove 'is a Modern American Witchcraft Tradition dedicated to the practice of the Old Religion and to the establishment of the Temple of the Goddess. OSG consists of independent but cooperative covens or groves within the larger order. We are open to both men and women.' There is such a beautiful 'woody', Celtic, faery feeling to this website design.

Ancient Ways Bookstore, Berkeley CA
Thought I'd put in a plug for them, as this is the bookstore where I purchased my first Tarot deck (the Thoth deck) in 1988.

Zodiac Arts
A great site by a Hawaiaan couple, Sandra and David Mosley, who in particular promote the usefulness of aligning one's life to the eight phases of the Moon's cycle.
WiccaNet was born as Pagan Broadcasting Systems (PBS) on Beltaine 1985, when they became the world's first Wiccan/pagan BBS. The website is now a clearly set out resource, with good 'leading paragraphs' presented to interesting articles.
