First and foremost, we are a circle of women supporting one another’s spiritual practice comprised of scholars, artists, healers, seidkonas, volur, and leaders in our communities. We welcome all women and female-identified members of the LGBTQ community interested in practicing our faith. Together, we teach, guide, and provide assistance to women on the path of contemporary Heathenry, which is reconstructed and revitalized from the Norse-Germanic traditions of pre-Christian Europe. Moreover, we understand that in order to thrive, our faith must acknowledge that many are called to this path regardless of heritage. This is not a debatable point for us. It is part of our core value system, and as women who are spiritual adherents and listeners to the High Ones, we lay this truth at our foundation.
Our circle provides mentorship, yearly academic-focused conferences, and workshops hosted by HWU members around the world. We are also creating a series of tours to sacred sites that focus on retreat and practice. We utilize social media, website forums and other conference platforms in an effort to include even the most isolated women in our circle. If you’re a woman whose values align with ours, we hope you’ll join us.
