Yggdrasil Odin or Woden's tree is where the Archangelic god hung for 9 days. The human being is a reverse tree; Head as root moving upward toward the limbs, the human Will. Knowing this, Woden reached beyond himself into spiritual worlds higher than the 8th hierarchy of the archangel to bring the symbols of that world to Middgahr.

For those seeking world and life truths, the meaning of existence, purpose and understanding of how we as human beings are related to the Earth and Cosmos, I invite you to consider study. Courses and lectures are presented along with practices to further one's personal progress.
Through individual tutoring and/or 6 week coursework in the knowledge of Esoteric Science, Anthroposophy and Mystery Wisdom of the ages, we arrive at higher awareness and in the process develop new soul forces for perceiving the world as it truly is.

Though labeled "pagan" by late-century christians, Vikingr-Scandinavian mythology of the gods is not separate from the higher realms of the Spiritual World - that which is the Cosmic Spirit, Sol-Spirit and Trinity. The gods of the pagans are in truth the Spiritual Hierarchies that are Nine in number, thus the sacred meaning of the number 9 to the Vikings, Danes and Celts. Only a Monotheistic view can make sense of this in that out of the One are created many many forms within kingdoms in the Cosmos and Earth.
