Status: Established Group

Group Overview: We are a Kindred that identifies as Universalist, meaning anyone is free to come to meet ups, gatherings and eventually blots. I say eventually because our blots take place at a private home and some vetting is required for privacy reasons.
A blot is basically a ritual where we call the Gods, pass the horn and drink to Them, and sometimes offer burnt offerings in a fire. It is similar to a Wiccan ritual but a circle is not cast and quarters are not called. The initial structure is different. There are a lot of different ways to create sacred space.
We focus as a group exclusively on the Aesir, Vanir, and their allies during blots. Many of our members have personal practices that include other pantheons and we have no restrictions on that. ( I do occasionally lead Wiccan ritual for some holidays for anyone in the group who is interested in attending. I've been practicing for 24 years. )
We currently have one open meet-up the first Wednesday of each month in Buffalo, NY at the Wegmans on Amherst St near Grant St. It starts approximately at 8pm and lasts a little over an hour. We do bring a book as a focus point for discussion but any topic is welcome. The book is mostly an ice breaker in case people don't come with questions.
Events are listed on the calendar in our Facebook group.
We are working on developing open blots, preferably at parks or public spaces in the future so people are free to come and see what we do.
And we will be developing Lore nights open to non Kindred members very soon, I hope.
I am elected Gythia currently. Feel free to contact me with questions or interest. I'd be happy to explain anything or offer reading suggestions for further study.
