Gothic Language Book Recommendation

For those interested in Germanic Paganism, this is an excellent source for poetry and devotional hymns in the Gothic language.

This includes songs and invocations to archaic forms of Odin, Thor, Freyr, Frigga, and many other familiar divinities.

Although these are modern pieces, they hold within them a genuine love and respect for the Pagan faith, something old in spirit and reminiscent of days long gone.

It is important that we honor those who carry the torches of tradition and wisdom through the ages; those who sacrifice their time and effort to bring gifts like this to us.

Art, poetry, and song are ways to ensure that aspects of culture and religion are not completely lost to time, as so much of the Northern European religion has been lost since the days of Pagan dominance.

More people should take up poetry in this regard, as through poetry, art and music, the Northern religion will prevail once again and the Great Tree will continue to grow back to its glorious primordial heights.

May all beings benefit from devotion.

Ansuz Society

The Ansuz Society is a new expression of old traditions, focusing on re-establishing a connection between the East and West through various techniques such as sound, mantra/galdr, meditation, yoga, animistic philosophy, and devotion to the divine.

Although we emphasize a dominantly Germanic Pagan religious expression here, we feel that may different paths embody an identical framework towards the enlightenment of Self within all animated beings. Our main goal is to resurrect these deeper practices in the West, as much has been lost due to time and multiple cultural cataclysms. We seek to bridge these gaps by looking to our distantly related and more in-tact religious expressions that have persisted in India, Tibet, and Siberia.

Our mission is to establish community and organization for those who feel drawn to these spiritual paths through positive action, spiritual development, teaching and return to a simpler way of life.

New Book “Freyr’s Aett” Now Available!

This book is the first of a 3-part analysis of the deeper meanings hidden within the runes of the Elder Futhark. Through various avenues of mythology, language, and history, we will expand the scope and meanings present in each rune as it moves through time and culture. We will explore well known runic theories, as well as delve into uncharted and obscure territory that is meant to leave the reader with the sense of “vastness” present in each individual rune.

Throughout the project, we will examine common themes, philosophical musings, and an overall expansion of the deeper connotations that each rune encompasses. We will examine direct connections to the god Freyr and discuss many other deities present in this specific row of runes. Although the basics of rune theory are covered here as well, I don’t necessarily recommend this book to beginners or people new to Germanic Paganism. The reason being, is that this book may offer “too much information” and overwhelm someone without prior foundation in this esoteric system.

For beginners, I would recommend picking up my first rune book “Runes, Bindrunes and Hahalruna: European Sorcery and Divination”. That book will give you a good introduction to the runes while offering glimpses into cryptic aspects inherent in each one. It gives multiple angles one can view each rune from based on one’s experience and how one identifies with the initial word, shape, and sound of each rune. However, if dedicated and willing, this book can be approached first and may open many doors for your future research and practice.

Focus, Compassion, Development

How many cataclysms happen within the seed before it sprouts, how many obstacles before the flower blooms?

Keep your head up, focus on your goals.

Be kind to your fellow man.

We all struggle, we all experience suffering.

There’s no need to add to this Karmic weight.

The war is against ourselves, not the world.
