RITUAL: Oracular Seidr

Speak now, seeress, ’till said thou hast. Answer the asker ’till all he knows. . .” says the leader.

This form of divinatory practice involves the participants taking a guided journey to the entrance to Hel, then one person (the Seidr Kona or Madr) crosses into Hel for purposes of allowing the participants to ask questions of our ancestors, our gods and goddesses, and other beings.

The Mid-Atlantic Spae team was formed in 2016, and consists of a series of experienced spae practitioners that offer Spae work throughout the mid-atlantic.   They have conducted rituals at past Sacred Space events, as well as Winter Finding and Vanir Fest at Thor’s Hollow in Virginia.

The leadership of the Mid-Atlantic Spae team consists of Laurel Mendes, Becky Sheehan, and Scott Mohnkern.   All three have been giving lectures on variety of topics at pagan festivals for a number of years.
