Power Course in Old Norse


Want to read the Eddas and sagas in the original language? It's easy! Actually, we're kidding. It's not that easy. OK, sometimes it's rotten difficult. But with some tips and guidance from translator Ben Waggoner, you'll find that you can figure out more than you thought you could. We'll get an overview of Old Norse grammar and then start merrily bashing our merry way through some reading extracts.

Urglaawe 410: Die Deitsche Raane (The Pennsylvania Dutch Runes)


The heirloom healing Deitsch (Pennsylvania German) practice of Braucherei (also called Powwow in English) and the related magical practice of Hexerei serve as tremendous folk resources for the Heathen denomination of Urglaawe. Among a small group of Hexerei practitioners, remnants of a runic system of unknown age have been used in healing and in divination. This system has been picked up by the Urglaawe community, reconstructed as well as possible, and updated into a complex system of runes, elements, colors, mechanisms, and intentions. This workshop will provide the background to this rune

Viking Movie Night


Relax on Thursday night with Viking themed movies! We will play a few movies in the main hall and provide snacks and drinks. Join your fellow Heathens in mildly mocking the media representations of the ancient Norse.


Located in the heart of Arkansas, Black Bear Kindred is progressive kindred that focuses on the worth of the individual, and not their age, gender, sexuality, or ethnic identity. We practice inclusive Heathenry. Our practice is a hybrid of Ozark lore and Norse Mythology. Ozark folklore and magical practices are the descendant of Anglo-Saxon culture, a cousin to Norse
