Freyr joins the ranks of our pantheon.
At long last the project to recreate Idols of Odin, Thor and Freyr in a more medium scale for Blot has been realized. Freyr was completed today. The seated Idols are about 18" tall and Odin is a little over 2 feet.

These will be consecrated this weekend before approximately 120 witnesses.

Got back from Folkish Summer Hallowing a couple hours ago.

I feel refreshed, rejuvenated and cleansed of all my mundane stress and frustration.

And just like last year I already miss the company of all my folk. I got to catch up with so many excellent people from last year and met so many new friends.

Had the honor and pleasure of meeting those who enjoy my work. It's a very humbling experience to have a complete stranger approach you excited to shake your hand, get a book signed or take a picture with you.

The blót on Saturday night was magnificent. Mike performed a living statue rite reconstructed by @TheNorroenaSociety and it was hands down the most beautiful ceremony I've witnessed in person. There was a point where Thor was hailed and there was a booming rumble in the sky. No storms at all that day. Sent chills down my spine.

The activities were excellent and wholesome as always. My kids ran amok with the other kids and came back to the cabin completely filthy every night.

@Irminfolk lost access to their previous location, had several obstacles and cancellations and scrambled like maniacs the last few months to make FSH happen.

Despite all that, they managed to host the biggest and best heathen event on the east coast. And my personal favorite in the whole world.

I'll do a whole stream talking about my experience later this week.

The high holy Goðín are with us. The ancestors are with us. And we have a community that has love and fellowship that can be found nowhere else in modernity.

Blessings to you all. Hail.

TONIGHT 6pm EST

I will be joined by Michael Sagginario, leader of the @Irminfolk Odinist Community.

We will be showing a slideshow from the Folkish Summer Hallowing, discuss his organization, our time at the event and the future of the heathen nation on the east coast.

You don't want to miss it!
On Saturday evening we performed the Smyrja rite provided to us by Mark from the Norroena society to "awaken" three idols; Thor, Odin and Freyr.

The first sign that things were going right was that upon naming the God Thor, there was a loud "boom" sound in the distance. About as loud as a paint can full of Tannerite exploding.

It went something like this:  .... "and give you the name Thor; Hail Thor... Boommmmm"

And then today we noticed the apperition of a face in the smoke of the sacrficial ship that looks very similar to the Eyrarland Thor Idol.

Conclusion: the Rite works.
The Irminfolk will be represented at March for the Fallen at Fort Indiantown Gap Military Reservation on September 24th.

March for the Fallen is an annual ruck March and charity event honoring Fallen servicemembers of the United States armed forces. The Irminfolk treats it as a moot and team building effort.

This year will be the first year one of the Irminfolk core members returns to the event since suffering a catastrophic leg injury in Afghanistan 5 years ago! Come on down and show support!

We already set up a 14 mile team for team Irminfolk and we will have people in the 5k and 28 mile as well.

If you plan on joining us, reach out so we can coordinate.
