  • The article I was going to link for you has gone 404 not found (started a whole new question on that).  Found this chart on another site that might answer your question a little better.  It's not entirely accurate in every detail, but it's good enough in a general sense to serve as a jumping off point for you to look up more.

  • The Summerland isn't something that you have to get into. There are no prerequisites, no points taken, no brown nosing needed. What I was taught, and what I have gathered the idea is that when you have genuinely learned your last lesson here on Earth you die- passing or rising to the Summerland. The Summerland is where you go to evaluate your life, think about your last life's lesson, and rest your soul to be reborn so that you can use the knowledge from your last life in the next.

  • Paganism has many different varieties. There are the Asphodel Fields (a place of eternal boredom), Valhalla (a place of eternal battle....heaven for warriors), the Summerland (a paradise) among others.
