What is Keeper of Seasons Hall?

     Keeper of Seasons Hall is an independent religious group focused on honoring the Gods and Goddesses and studying the culture and religion of the Nordic/Germanic peoples. We gather to celebrate the blots of the ┴satr˙ faith, based on the general calendar below. Though we follow a general calendar, we follow most closely the natural seasons as they come here in New Mexico.

Disfest (Disablot)
Ostara (Ostara)
May Eve (Valpurgis)
Midsummer (Midsumarsblot)
Freysfest (Freysblot)
Fallfest (Haustblot)
Winter Nights (Vetrnaetr)

"Keeper of Seasons" is a modern kenning for "raven" derived from an ancient kenning found in Snorri Sturluson's Skaldskaparmal. The original kenning was "Year-Counter." As Albuquerque enjoys seasonal visits by ravens, we thought a raven a fitting symbol for us and our activities. Our blots are nothing if not seasonal, and in the way that we continue to celebrate the blots, we too are "Keepers of Seasons." Attendance of Keeper of Seasons Hall functions require advance invitation. Any interested parties should contact our Ritari at one of the addresses provided.

┴satr˙ is a living religion practiced by many people in various countries. "┴satr˙" literally means "faith in the Ăsir," however, ┴satr˙ implies a faith also in the Vanir and various other wights. The Ăsir and Vanir are widely know as the Gods and Goddesses of the Old Norse eddas and sagas.

Keeper of Seasons Hall is a non-discriminatory group created to provide an environment in which one can practice the ┴satr˙ faith and gain deeper understanding of the principles and practices of our re-awakened Heathen religion. We will not tolerate hatred, intolerance, or discrimination based on age, color, ethnicity, gender, language, national origin, race, sexual orientation, or any other decisive criteria. We welcome anyone who is truly interested in the religion.
