The Great Moot… What a wonderful title to conjure with! And for someone who is still very much a newcomer to the OR, and in spite of the many posts on the forum which said everyone would be welcome and no one would be left alone, for me it was still something of a daunting prospect to attend a meeting in which I would come face to face with the very people who I regard as being the living breathing heroes of the Great Awakening.

Our Idaho Mid-Summer Moot started on Friday night with the arrival of Heimgest in Idaho. We had planned a dinner get together for the Idaho residents and Heimgest so knowing he navigated his way from BC in Canada to the correct place was a relief. He contacted Arinbjorn OR and said he was going to lie down for a bit and then shower before we picked him up for dinner. At the appointed time we arrived at the hotel, checked at the front desk and were directed to his room. Yes, not very secure but we live in a semi secure city still!

The Odinic Rite’s annual UK Folk Camp was a short but highly successful, enjoyable and rewarding weekend.
This year’s camp had a slightly different twist to it as we stayed in cabins instead of tents for the first time since we began holding the annual UK camp. We have seen reduced numbers at camp over the last couple of years due to the inclement weather we can have here in the UK, rarely extreme, yet the year before last saw thirty two hours of non stop rain over the camp weekend which was not a lot of fun!

Hengest, Fran and family have not only become trusted comrades to me over the last 10 years or so that I have been in the Rite, but close friends that I have grown to love. So After seeing on the OR Members Forum a few months before that Hengest and Fran had decided to “renew” the wedding vows that they had sworn twenty years previously by becoming handfasted, I made sure that I would be there Continue reading

I am honoured to be able to report on the Handfasting of Harry Slinn AOR to his partner Federica Toffoletto on the 21st Day of Hunting 2062 RE.
A grey and wet day in Eynsford, Kent could not dampen the spirits those who attended to witness and celebrate the joining of Harry and Federica. Members of Fylfot Hearth, close family and many other welcome members and guests made the walk to the site, a much loved wooded area in the heart of Eynsford to be part of the proceedings.

I started on my Odinic path about eight years ago. I was living in Redding when I found this path; a kinsman of mine gave me a pamphlet on the Runes. This pamphlet taught me about the Runes and then I learned more teaching myself about them through books and meditation. I think that, for me, this was a big steppingstone. Continue reading

The beautiful Derbyshire Peak district was once again the setting for this year’s UK Folk Camp. The area has an abundance of wonderful sites and its magical pull cannot be ignored, so once again the Rite returned to Birchover just below Stanton Moor for our fifth folk camp. Continue reading

What can I say….another ORV Moot in the pages of OR history.
It started as any other Moot, Donar’s Hearth members running ragged getting all the preparations in place, finishing our shirts, booklets, food prep, etc… I mark the beginning of Moot at the Portland Airport at 2:30 am picking up our OR Brother Andy from Ontario, Canada. It is was awesome to meet him and honored he made such a long trip to attend Moot! Continue reading

Over the first four days of Fallow members of the OR gathered at Birchover in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak district of England for the OR Folk Camp.
We returned once more to this beautiful area with its many interesting sites and rolling countryside. Few places can offer such a wealth of ancient history within such a relatively small area. Continue reading
