EMPA#0047: Yule, Community, and the Death of Baldur
Hail and welcome! It's Yule time on Eat My Pagan Ass. The trees are lit up with lights, gifts strewn below. The longest night approaches, and day is to be reborn. As we gather in with one another, fending off the winter blues and lonely, cold nights, we revel in the light of the human spirit, and find joy in one another's company. Now is the time of song and story telling, of promises and hope. A new day dawns, and we spiral inward to find the spark of light and carry it outward once more.
Death of Baldur
In this episode, I chat about community and the importance of coming together to honor ourselves and our spiritual path. I also give a reading of the the tale of the Death of Baldur, written by yours truly. In between I play some seasonal ROCKIN PAGAN MUSIC sung by Grailwood high priestess, Selkie Lyrazel ("The Snow Queen"). Brew yourself some mulled wine, or heat your spiked eggnog, pull up a chair by the fire, and let me carry you away back through time to an ancient place where ice and darkness ruled and where the gods and giants were very much alive.
