Heilsa One and All!
We Are Back. We have lots of stuff planned.
I will be attending the big 25th anniversary at Trothmoot June 7 through June 10. (Registration ends May 23.) Please feel free to say hi there. It's going to be a great blast with Kveldulf Gundarsson, Diana Paxson and many others.
We do plan on continuing our series on Rites of Life. I have a number of vict... er... volunteers to interview and talk to on the very subject. We would absolutely love to hear more questions and items to be answered via the 101 podcasts.
Thanks again for the warm words, thanks and support over the last few months. We do appreciate those.

This is raw and deliberately unedited. I hope this to be a series about the various Life rituals. So look forward to others on birth, marriage, etc.
Unfortunately, we're starting at the end as a result of some family tragedy. I hope folks to be informed and inspired by this and not just this to be a point for my emotional vomiting.

Your podcast was not hijacked just borrowed. With Chuck's permission at Raven Radio, we are sharing this debate that I took the Universalist position on. (And, again, for the record I think the whole debate sucks and divides Asatruar more then defines or describes what we do.)
Co-panelists included Randolf Millesson, Camille Klein, Cynthia Norris-Brooks and Mike Smith.
Considering the recent mess and embarrassing statement that the AFA drafted a few weeks ago, I do feel that unfortunately this stuff does need to be aired.
Sadly, I doubt that this is exactly the final word on this issue by any means. (Anyone up for a debate at the next ECT?)

This would be our preview of some of the things going down at ECT 2011.
With the East Coast Thing 2011 fast approaching Dave and I thought we would take some time to talk to Jon Cyr the founder of the Young Vikings Club. This year the Young Vikings Club is generously hosting several great events for children of all ages during the Thing. Naturally we wanted to find out more!

Dave and I discuss the far reaching topic of Wyrd. We discuss it's relevance in the past and it's use in the modern day, the idea of Fated Luck, as well as going over the question of whether you can change your luck.
So what does the tapestry of your Wyrd look like? Food for thought

Gary was kind enough to invite us to record his class on Asatru ritual in the lore. We were thrilled to do so and also was able to witness a very cool discussion after the class as well. The subject mostly focused upon the the sections within the saga about Blot and other formal ritual structures. The discussion was typical of having many heathen types with multiple opinions. On everything.
This is the second and companion part to Gary's ECT class. You will want to download the Gunnall paper and have that handy.
We also now have a Facebook page! Friend us and spread the virus... er... legend of Ravencast and our name everywhere.

We interviewed Vidar Andolfsson from the Wayfarers in Canada to talk about his music/meditation videos. To get a frame of reference, go listen to the track at Youtube.
We go all over about inspiration, creativity and music. Vidar also has more creative endeavors on the way with a project centering on Saga.
