Other Ideas for the Season
Our path is one of doing.
A living tradition practiced and evolved yet rooted in thousands of years of wisdom and direct experience, developed from relationships with the local Spirits of the Land, The Gods and Goddesses that dwell there and our Ancestors, our Bone Kin.
It's full of story myths and folklore of those ancestors, coming from the fabric of the very land we stand on..
For the blood and bone of our ancestors, become a part of the land, they become a part of the Story.. The Eddas and the Sagas.
