The Red Kite: A modern allegory tale of our folk

The Red Kite: A modern allegory tale of our folk

By Rob M AOR

I am very lucky to now live in a very rural part of Britain having finally managed to escape the urban setting. Recently one day, as I lay outside in my garden with my eyes closed, I heard the familiar sound of a bird calling. It’s a sound I instantly recognise and immediately know all is well on Midgard. The distinctive pitch of the red kite.

Odin and Nietzsche: Will and Service to Folk

Odin and Nietzsche: Will and Service to Folk

By Taven Odinkaur AOR

I don’t wear a Hammer.

I am going to admit right now, Folks, I only wear a Valknut. I am an Odinist , literally. Nothing against Thor and his hallowing Hammer, the mighty weapon of the common farmers. I greatly respect the Friend of Man, and his personal devotees are good Folk, but Odin is where my affinity lies.

Why? Continue reading

UK Summer Folk Camp 2014

UK Summer Folk Camp 2014

By Sigbert OR

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!

Outpouring of the Folk Soul

Outpouring of the Folk Soul

By Redwald OR

The following verse came forth unexpectedly and quickly. It was written down faster than I could mentally process it, but upon reading it back I realise it is about a number of things; my recent consideration of meditation; a song which was written by my good friend Lee J, ‘Lost Between the Lines’; my constant frustration with the social constraints I endure daily but one day hope to see an end to and a desperate desire to encourage others of my folk to tune into their folk-soul and rediscover who they really are. Continue reading

Legacy of Blood

Legacy of Blood

By Ulfhethnar Odinsen AOR

The genetic roots of our people long predate the ancient civilisations and cultures of the Nordic North as well as those of Rome, Egypt and Sumer. They were outward manifestations of a people’s inherent drive to understand and create order in an otherwise chaotic world. A desire to emulate the Gods who set the Sun, Moon and Stars into motions and brought a semblance of order. Continue reading

Hail the Heathen Hammer

Hail the Heathen Hammer

By Anders B. AOR

It were at last year’s G.M, that Blutgeist OR gave a talk and meditation on the hammer and what it means to us that bit deep into me, to the point that I had this overwhelming feeling to make a hammer to be of a high enough standard to represent our faith. Continue reading

The River of Our Life

The River of Our Life

By Rory H. AOR

I read a while ago a quote about the Odinic Rite being as a rock in a rapidly flowing river, resisting those forces which are constantly trying to wash it away and lose our holy faith forever. I agree totally with this thought but I consider that there is more to this statement than initially meets the eye. Continue reading

A brief synopsis of the nine noble virtues in the modern world

A brief synopsis of the nine noble virtues in the modern world

By Rory H. AOR Courage A small word I am sure that everyone would agree, and not a word that is heard too much these days. Whether that is because of the current trend for people to be mindless, state … Continue reading

ORBriefing: A Lifeline for Lone Members

ORBriefing: A Lifeline for Lone Members

Look what the OR can do for me! Look what it offers! These comments I thought to myself many times, then it dawned on me, if nobody submitted articles to ORBriefing, if nobody took time to organize and work on things, then there would be nothing for the rest of us to enjoy and look forward to! Continue reading

What it means to be Folkish

What it means to be Folkish

Recently I was engaged in a rather heated and lengthy debate with some people close to me about my Folkish beliefs and the general Folkish stance of our organisation, the Odinic Rite. Continue reading
