The Way of the Völva in Avalon

The Völva Training is practical and nature-based and much of it will be held outside on the land of Avalon. You will learn to find the wisdom that is held in the core of women, which is released when you come into contact with the web of all life. Connecting with that old power of women will bring you back to who you truly are. You will learn oneness with Her nature and the beings who dwell within Her nature, journeying in the Otherworlds through the magic of the Seidr. During the training you will make your own Rattle, Magic Bag and Staff, empowering them with your own energy. This training is about old forgotten knowledge and authenticity. The foundation of the training is Norse, but we will also look on the many similarities between Norse and British Goddesses.

Please do not take this training if you do not want your life to change.

Please note: becoming a daughter of Freya and meeting the Norse Goddesses can be very demanding as they want you to grow in strength and wisdom. It will involve you in personal change, psychological and spiritual development and the healing of your wounds. When personal issues arise which need extra help you may be required to seek additional psychotherapeutic support in order to continue with the second spiral.

Because of the transformative nature of this teaching the minimum age for students on this course is 23 years of age.
