Its a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift which is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall begin to curse ourselves for having forgotten the use of the living machines given to us by [the] God[s].
We are a Guild of craftswo/men who use our Indo-European heritage of not only mastering our Indigenous Spiritual pursuits, but just as importantly for mastering material craftsmanship handed down through many generations to design and create Living Heathenry.
Our processes, our methods and mission is to keep these traditions, practices, rites, and crafts alive and well. In this high-tech age, our traditional Forn Sed craftsmanship is roaring back to life; as well as beginning to flourish.
We use our Ancestry, our history, our cultural heritages, and our hands to learn, master or re-create things that will live on through our descendants born into a strange new future. By telling our Ancestral stories and teaching Forn Sed, this knowledge becomes living Heathenry in the hands of the craftswo/men teaching these arts, but more importantly for the people who will come after us.
Each course that we within the Guild create, is born with proficient magic, useful energy and Old World personality set in modern days. I promise you, a love and care for the Old Ways will be felt by each seeker through our craftsman; and this resonance stems from the heart of Midgard.
Large followings are not our goal within this Guild. All of our courses are created by dedicated Norse Pagans who use equally traditional methods and techniques where located along side of modern methods where applicable. Each craftsman is working from his or her own Ve, located in her or his own homeland.
Our focus is on authenticity, personal uniqueness and quality, not quantity. We want to help 21st century people to remember how to tap into their own Indigenousness, to unite with the forces that make up life on Jord, to use their hands once again, and to re-relate to their own human energy to take their lives back to a more Holistic, sustainable path.
We seek to aid an apprentice or Guild member to achieve the true joy of Living Heathenry by reclaiming something from our Ancestral humble beginnings, just as we have.
In today’s throw-away society, we craftswo/men of The Guild of Forn Sed Hearthfire are building a way of life that needs reclaiming, and a way of Living Heathenry that will last and tell their stories about us long after we are gone.
Our traditions we teach within this Guild, from Seidr to Blacksmithing; -walk hand and hand together. We are uniting and preserving our history, traditions and craftsmanship on one platform – The Guild of Forn Sed Hearthfire.
