In this guild you will find hands on, blow by blow systems to perform Heathen practices by mentors who will work with you along the way. It is our goal to provide a place to experience all the joy and wonder that Heathenry offers. As you take this journey you can expect to experience great growth and probably a few surprises! So let’s get started!

  • You have a firm understanding of Heathenry; what it is and what’s it not.
  • You have a understanding about the Norse Nine Worlds, our Gods and our Ancestors.
  • You honor and venerate the Earth as a living being, our Mother, Jord.
  • You understand this is a spiritual quest, not a historically accurate re-enactment (though that happens with authenticity) nor a spin off of monotheism.
  • ALL humans are welcome to learn Seidr. We DO NOT tolerate any sort of supremacy or elitism.
