Jeff Hooded Wanderer Felty will present "Hidden Knowledge in Old Northern European Myths: The Importance of Women in Pre-Christian Europe": Many of the stories about the Norse gods, goddesses, and even the heroes are told from the man’s point of view. The goddesses and the everyday women tend to be left out. He will break some of these stories down and share the hidden knowledge about the goddesses, valkyries, and the everyday women in the lore.
For almost three and a half decades, Jeff has studied Native American traditions and Daoism. The last fifteen years, he has studied the pre-Christian folkways of Northern Europe; discovering and working with their Shamanic traditions and Spa craft brought a clarity to the other traditions he had studied. His focus for the last nine years has been on researching and writing on the Northern European spiritual traditions. He shares the results of my work, through writing blogs, spreading Northern European mythology by telling the traditional stories, as well as teaching workshops and classes. He is also the co-owner of Modern American Shamanism along with his wife Crow Spirit.
