The Troth’s In-Reach Heathen Prison Services Program

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.

Myth Embodiment Workshop: The Þrymskivða

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.
