I am Vinland’s Volva, an honorary title of respect and recognition, gifted me by Sámi Noaide (‘shamans’; This does not make me a Sámi, just recognized by them). I have been a Heathen for 36+ years, of the Euro-tribe: Heithni. Currently, my tribe consists of some 200+ folk living mostly in the Southeastern United States.
I am a spiritual traveler and sacred pilgrim, visiting and honoring sacred sites across
continental Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia. I have lived in Europe and spent extensive
time in Ireland, Italy, Spain and Wales. In 2005, I lived and learned, laughed and loved,
with Sámi Noaide in Finland.
At all times, my overall focus is on the Folksoul of my people. Secondly, it is on education. My other interests include: the active monitoring of Ley-lines; the use of Galdr (chant/charm) to
re-tune and re-align sacred sites; aiding local Guardians with energy clean up; the
study and praxis of ancient energy healing techniques – or, Forn Þreifa; and the support of other cultural groups seeking to maintain their heritage and traditions.
Having never been Christian, my worldview is unique in that I have a deeply rooted
connectedness and profound sense of understanding to the seemingly impenetrable depths
of Heathen mysticism, Seiðr philosophy, and Female Mystery Traditions.
I am the founder of the Georgia Heathen Society and the Southlands Tribal Alliance; a
Brother within the Brotherhood of the Sacred Hunt (BOSH); a fellow of the American
Academy of Religion, and member of the World Congress of Religions. I have a masters
in Religious Studies and a doctorate in Philosophy. My book, _Völuspá - Seiðr as Wyrd
Consciousness_, is considered the “definitive??? guide on Seiðr study and praxis. http://tinyurl.com/h75d6
I am a full-time writer and lecturer, have just completed two more books, and maintain a blog here: http://vinlands-volva.blogspot.com/
My husband Tim and I are the proud Lord and Lady of Heimat Hof – the only 501 (c)
Heathen ‘church’ in the United States (located in Georgia).
