By Hariulf OR For this article I will try to analyse the Myth of Odin and the Poetic Mead. I will focus particularly on the part where Odin goes in search of the Mead. I’m far from being a specialist on mythology but here are my thoughts…

by Dave Hobson AOR Every ritual object that we fashion for ourselves is charged with much more power than a purchased object could possible contain. This power, in turn, charges both the liquid that it will hold and the folk who will pass it in Sumble or in Blot. It is a very simple task to create your own drinking horn—don't be intimidated by the magical significance. Like all things, the result is far more impressive than the method.

By Mike P AOR I do not know the true figures, but I would hazard a guess that about 80% of the Odinic Rite membership celebrates its religion in a solitary manner. Which means that for the vast majority of us Blot and Sumbel are simply not going to happen – we have no-one with whom to share such occasions, no-one we can join in prayer or practice. Or have we?

Mead is mentioned frequently in Odinic myths and other bodies of writing related to Odinism, and as we know (and sometimes enjoy), it is also in evidence at Odinist gatherings etc. Many Odinists brew their own mead and in many ways it would be a fair observation to say that mead drinking has become a part of Odinist practice in some instances.

The 3rd UK Odinic Rite folk camp was held at Uffington in Oxfordshire. The campsite itself was just below White Horse Hill with its famous chalk carving of a horse. (more about that later) White Horse Hill, Dragon Hill and Uffington castle were literally 10 minutes walk from the campsite.
