From the Poetic Edda:
Three times burned, | and three times born,
Oft and again, | yet ever she lives.
Heith [Bright One] they named her | who sought their home,
The wide-seeing witch, | in magic wise
Winters Kiss draws us down deep and we are not alone. We dare to embrace Mystery...... Winter Witchcamp is a five-day intensive in the Reclaiming tradition that includes trance work, healing, drumming, dancing, chanting, storytelling, and powerful energy work. At Winter Witchcamp we seek to develop new magical skills while deepening our relationship to Mystery. We embrace the Reclaiming Principles of Unity. We honor the Reclaiming Tradition's core values, including caring for the environment and our families and communities, and embracing diversity of all kinds, including diversity of gender and sexual orientation. However, you must be at least 18 years of age to attend camp. Camp is held in Minnesota.
We honor the Runes and the Norse Mysteries. We are aware that some who honor those Mysteries are also white supremacist. We definitively do not align with those beliefs and work toward social justice as well as honoring diversity and multiplicity in all of its forms in our tradition. In alignment with these values we have published a statement denouncing white supremacy and racism which can be found here .
Our Camp Intention: From Freya's Hall, Winter Witchcamp seeks to deepen our connection to the land of the upper Mississippi River. We revere and revel in the beauty and wonder of winter. As a community, we are awakening to our skills as conscious co-creators of the multiverse in order to manifest more loving, beautiful, and joyful worlds, families, clans, and camps.
In selecting to work with Gullveig this year, our Continuity Committee was strongly inspired by an article by Maria Kvilhaug. Since the story we are working with comes from the Vǫluspá or Prophecy of the Seeress, the first poem of the Poetic Edda, we offer Gullveig: The Prophecy of the Witch as a title for this coming year's work.
*In our winter hall you will find many things. Here you can find the core that supports our intention.
