I am a Völva. Völva is Old Norse for “staff carrier,” the traveling spiritual guide learned in the ways of my European/Scandinavian Folk Soul. Like Thorbjorg from Eric the Red’s Saga, I am invited into communities to lead ceremony, share information, impart wisdom, and perpetuate the folk ways through song, story, and dance. I heal oorlag at it's source and read wyrd for individuals and groups.

New Site

As we finish the tiny edits on the Rune book and hand over the design of the site to a Huldre this May, I find myself in a constant state of herding.

Cow calling is a tradition in my mother's family. Usually it's just "yooo hooo" like that. Starting on A for the yooo to F# for the hooo.

You will hear me doing this at Powderhorn Park on May 6th. Someone may record it!

I will also be moving my blog to my site using wordpress. Lovely!

Until later,

More on the book!

Well, just a few more weeks and our book, "The Runes; A Human Journey" will be released for public consumption. I couldn't be more proud!

My mother's sisters, brothers, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends have all seen the editor's copy and have given me the most amazing thumbs up! Thank you all.

Of course, I am constantly creating and a second book begins to manifest out of my Staving work.

Right now it's a potential performance art piece surrounding the Brissengammen. That's all I'm saying for now...

I hope your Vernal Equinox saw you to your balance. If you need more help, join my staving session at the Eye of Horus on Saturday April 7th, or the next First Saturday of the Month!
