The Lost Gods of Wonder
A journey into the Norse wisdom tradition and how these myths and stories can help us gain a deeper perception of our relationships, lives and society today.
In this evening we will ask: why study myth and story? What is a symbol? What is totemic power? During this evening Andreas will light an old fire of these lands to make ancestral stories come to life in a way that speaks directly to the heart and stirs the soul.
The mythical underpinnings of our current world predicament: mass extinction, climate change, and the loss of our own ancestral soul and how these are linked will also be openly investigated. Expect live music, drums and your full participation - come dive into the inner worlds of Runes, Goddesses and Gods and discover their initiations and stories that can guide us through turmoil and the ecological crisis.
All are welcome to join regardless of experience, sexuality, and cultural/spiritual background: the spirit is warm and enthusiastically inclusive.
