Dec 2, 2016

This month we’re joined by John Hijatt and Marci Barrett to talk about the Heathen hearth culture. Together we talk about the differences between what we’ve been saying all along (Norse) and the more accurate term (Heathen). We talk about the source of the hearth culture, the different cultures under the Heathen banner, and what little we know about the ancient cultures. We talk about the Deities in the ritual, Loki and the divisive nature Heathens take toward Him, and Jonathan asks a question about Vikings!

Some resources to check out are:

 

 

John also co-hosts Gifts of the Wyrd with his co-host Laine, and that can be found on iTunes or podbean. Contact John through giftsofthewyrd@gmail.com through Facebook, or on twitter @wyrdgifts
 

Our music today was: SJ Tucker - Firebird’s Child

Bonus Episode 6- Welcoming the Mighty Dead

Once again, Arin, Jonathan, and Ember, have come together to talk about leading the Welcoming the Mighty Dead ritual, what it entails, and how this unique ritual came to be. We all talk about our experiences in the ritual, and Arin reads a couple accounts from other Grove members who took both an “ancestor” role, and a “demon” role (if you’re confused, I guess that just means you’ll have to listen!) 

Kudo’s go out to everyone involved in this ritual, and to Drea and Mama Gaea/Christina for their written perspectives of the ritual.

Episode 9 “Roman Hearth Culture overview”

 

This month we explore the Roman Hearth Culture with Jonathan. We explore some Roman 101 with thanks to An Introduction to Roman Religion by John Scheid. We talk about the difference between the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, particularly when it comes to religion. We talk about the key concepts of the Roman Religion, and we define some important words within the Roman religion. This hearth culture overview is a little longer than the last episodes have been, so there is no interview this time, but stay tuned for next month, when we’ll be talking about the Norse Hearth Culture and hearing the interview with Kirk Thomas.

 

Our Deity of the episode today was Mars, god of war. Find out more at http://www.ancient.eu/Mars/.

 

We’re featuring some Roman music this month:

Synaulia - Oraculum

Synaulia - Prayer to Isis

Bonus Episode 5- Dionysus Fall Equinox

 

Arin, Jonathan, and Ember get together to talk about what it was like leading and taking parts in their Fall Equinox ritual honoring Dionysus. Jonathan talks about how, even though our Grove has multiple members who often take parts leading rituals, as Senior Druid he still often finds himself stepping up to help out when members are unable to do their part. Ember talks about some of the thought process that went into writing this ritual, and the surprise “modern” element of the ritual.

We also hear from some of our other Grove members, both old and new, about their own experiences at the festival, including Mama Gaea, without whom this festival would not have existed, and one of our newest members Coatney.

After that, listen to Arin’s interview with Phaedra Bonewits. It was such a blast, and an honor, to get to meet to Phaedra, to talk to her about her history in paganism, her theatrical take on ritual, and her relationship with Isaac. Of course, we could only capture a small fragment of time with Phaedra to bring to our listeners, but we hope that you enjoy it just as much as we did.

From S.J. Tucker, “Hymn to Herme”
