Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry
Tribal Paganism, a Live Journal community, is very pleased to welcome Diana L. Paxson as a guest author on Thursday, November 16, 2006. She'll be available to answer your questions throughout the day regarding Heathenism, Asatru, and issues surrounding contemporary paganism.

Diana's latest book is Essential Asatru (Citadel Press, 2006). Last year, Taking Up the Runes: A Complete Guide to Using Runes in Spells, Rituals, Divination, and Magic was published by Red Wheel/Weiser.

"In the late 80’s Diana became interested in the Germanic heathen tradition, which has become her major focus. In 1994 she was confirmed as an Elder in the Troth. She served on its Board of Directors from 1996-2005, and served as Steerswoman (president) between 1999-2002. Since 1997 she has edited the Troth’s journal, IDUNNA. A major interest has been the recovery of the northern magical traditions, including rune magic and oracular seidh. In addition to establishing a group which performs seidh in the Bay Area, she has conducted seidh training workshops all over the U.S. and in Europe. On the local level, she runs an open heathen kindred, Hrafnar, and teaches classes in runelore, trance-work, and Germanic magic. As a representative of the heathen tradition, Diana is also involved in the United Religious Initiative, an international interfaith organization."
