Beltane Thanks

Image
Thank you to everyone who came to our Beltane event with Swansea Pagan Moot! We were blessed with wonderful weather in an enchanting location, cheerful community, much food and fire, and - of course - Swansea's particular brand of chaotic May Pole dancing...!   Thomas and Olivia were also Handfasted in the presence of community members, friends, landvaettir, ancestors, and the Gods. Thank you for being a part of it all!

Beltane Celebration, Camping (& Handfasting) May 2022

Image
On the 7th May 2022 we are hosting a moot Beltane celebration in a private wood near the Gower! This will involve a Beltane ceremony and camping for those who wish to stay the night. The Beltane ceremony will have heathen elements blended in with folk traditions (i.e. a May Pole). There will also be a Handfasting ceremony held between two of our community members, which will take place a short while after the Beltane ceremony. Beltane attendees aren't obliged to stay for this, but are welcome. For the purpose of safety, we won't advertise the location here, but please get in touch via the comment form at the bottom of this blog if you're interested, or apply to join the Swansea Pagan Moot FaceBook page.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Swyn Weavers Kindred! We are an inclusive Heathen community based in South-Wales (UK), though we also operate online and may host events further afield. Our group purpose is to foster frith and community with individuals who identify as Heathens or with the Northern traditions (i.e Norse Paganism, Asatru, Vanatru, Rokkatru, Anglo-Saxon Heathenry, Trolldom etc.) - and those who are interested in learning more. We want to provide opportunities for conversation, ceremony, pagan education, and connection to the ancestors and deities, which are not always accessible in many post-Christian societies. Our group is non-hierarchical and we aim to take it in turns to lead events and blots. Some of our members have had training in certain contemporary Pagan traditions, though none have yet been recognised by the community as fulfilling the role of gyðja, go ði, or völva. We firmly advocate for Inclusive Heathenry , valuing and inviting the involvement of all people, i
