Sessions

Bat Watching with Bats Northwest

Body

Join Christina for a Bat Watch! Bats are everywhere and Fort Flagler is no exception. These fast flying insectivores can be hard to see but with the help of bat detectors that amplify bat feeding calls we’ll be able to see and hear our local bats come out to eat. There will be real bat specimens and a Q&A session.

Casting the Runes

Body

Many of us have been using runes for divination over the years, yet most of us do simple pulls and layouts. Have you ever considered casting them like lots? We will discuss a method to develop a system of casting runes that will work for you. By the end, you should have the confidence needed to take this next step.

Clergy Candidate Oral Examination

Body

The clergy candidates will submit themselves to oral examination. This is a closed session: only involved personnel may attend.

Clergy Meeting

Body

This meeting is open to all current members of the Troth’s Clergy Program, as well as everyone interested in joining.

Heathen History Podcast!

Body

Join us in the theater for a live recording of Lauren’s Heathen History Podcast—and who better to have on than former Steerswoman Diana L. Paxson and new-minted Elder Melodi “Sagadís” Grundy? Hear about the history of the current modern heathen revival from people who made it!

Heathenry & the Media: Shaping the Narrative

Body

How does the media see Heathenry? In this workshop we will explore common tropes and misconceptions presented by both Pagan and mainstream media, and how to effectively work to change them, including a case studies in effective reputation management and the proper care and feeding of your local journalists. This will be a crash course in public relations that can benefit you, your kindred, and any other public service work you do!

Loki’s Wager With The Dwarves (it’s a play!)

Body

Cascadia Freehold will put on a short play, titled Loki’s
Wager With The Dwarves
, dramatizing the story from Gylfaginning wherein Loki, having gotten himself into quite a fix by cutting off Sif’s golden hair, pits two famous families of dwarven smiths against one another to see whose gifts to the gods will win greatest praise! What’s at stake? Why, only Loki’s head, of course!!

Myth Embodiment Workshop: The Þrymskivða

Body

This workshop will focus on the Þrymskviða (aka, How Thor Got His Hammer Back). Myth embodiment is a depth psychology tool that has been used in healing families and communities, but it can also be a powerful tool for gaining a deeper insight into myths. After all, what are myths but stories about the dynamics of the families of the Gods? Through reenacting this myth, we will get an experiential view of the relationships between the different Powers That Be in Norse mythology. This activity is specifically not meant to be scripted, so as to allow space for as many opinions, point of views, and

Skepticism, Doubt, & Faith (and Lack Thereof)

Body

A round table discussion for atheists, doubters, skeptics, cynics and agnostics. It is said that belief is not required for the practice of Heathenry. Not everyone believes, or wants to believe in the gods and other spiritual entities customarily honored in modern Heathen observances. Some people have lots of questions or can’t decide on a regular practice or devotional path. Some are so solitary or unique in their practice that meaningful group ritual is nearly impossible. Others don’t care at all about any of the above, but just like to hang out with other Heathens. There’s room for all of

The Troth’s In-Reach Heathen Prison Services Program

Body

The Troth’s In-Reach Heathen Prison program answers correspondence from prisoners and works with chaplains to provide support for inclusive Heathenry within prisons, mostly in the US. White supremacists have long used Heathen religion as a recruiting and organizing tool within US prisons, and InReach works to counter that with academically rigorous alternatives and support. Come learn a bit about the terrain, the history of the program and how you might help as a volunteer.

Rituals

Clergy Candidate Showcase

Our Godfolk Candidates will each perform a short blót in
honor of the gods: Thor, the Vanir, and Frigg, respectively. Come support them!

Closing Blót, Taking Down the Glove

As the last official act of Trothmoot, we will toast the gods once more and take down the glove.

Devotional to Odin and Loki

This is a possessory rite in honor of Odin and Loki. If you have never attended a rite of this nature held in Hrafnar’s tradition (e.g. at previous Trothmoots), please see Lorrie before attending.

Grand Sumbel

This crowning moment of Trothmoot has been the setting for many stories, some of which you may have heard this weekend from habitual Trothmoot attendees!

This year, the leadership of the Troth turns to a new Steer, who will make their own interpretation of this evolving rite.

Iðunn Blót

Iðunn is the patron goddess of the Troth, her apples have brought new life to current modern reinvention of our faith. With waters gathered from everywhere our members might reach, with apples and song, we will join Troth members around the world.

In Idunna’s garden apples grow—
always in fruit and in flower.
Time cannot touch those who their sweetness know;
Blessings and bliss fill her bower.
Lady, but one portion give—
Like the holy gods we’ll live
Protected in peace by your power!

Land-Taking, Opening Blót, and Raising of the Glove

Trothmoot cannot begin without the Raising of the Glove, a traditional declaration that the event is being held within a frithstead. After this short ceremony and a blót to Holle, there will be a brief walk around the grounds to introduce ourselves to the land with which we will be sharing the weekend.

Loki Blót!

For the first time in many years, a Loki Blót will not only be held, not only be scheduled, but actually be in the program.
