Nine Sisters: Gods and Goddesses of the Northern Seas – Raven Kaldera
Today the oceans are threatened more than ever before in the history of the Earth. We tend to think that the seas are unimportant to us, but the Gods and Goddesses of the Oceans would disagree. In this workshop we’ll explore the ancient Norse deities of the cold northern seas, especially the Nine Sisters who are the daughters of Aegir and Ran, and who have begun to approach modern Pagans once again. Come and discover their magic, their danger, and their beauty – and learn more about the power of the seas, and how you can help. We’ll also have a short ritual to help heal the oceans.
Nine Maidens: Healing Goddesses of the North- Raven Kaldera
We could all use healing in our lives. In ancient times, folk made offerings to healing Gods and Goddesses when they were ill. This practice can still bring amazing results to our lives. In this workshop, we’ll learn about the healing goddesses of the Norse and Germanic peoples and how they can help us today. We’ll concentrate especially on Mengloth and her nine handmaiden/colleagues, each of which is a specialist in some area of health from surgery to pulled muscles to mood disorders. We’ll end with a short ritual for healing of all our bodies and minds. (Link Raven mentions)
