Earth religion

Earth religion is a New Age term used mostly by believers in neo-paganism and similar faiths.

It is an umbrella phrase that is used to cover any religion that worships the Earth, Nature, or fertility gods, such as the various forms of goddess worship. Some find a connection between Earth-worship and the Gaia theory. By using the phrase, these believers seek to stress their continuity with older faiths that also worshipped nature or fertility gods, such as some forms of shamanism, Shinto, Hinduism, or Native American religions.
