Wyrd

Wyrd—the etymological root of the word weird—is an ancient goddess, phenomenon, process, and concept that comes to us via animist, pagan Northern European. Wyrd is the interweaving of the mysteries of fate, destiny, nature, magic, soul and becoming. It may be hard to believe just how all of these mysteries and phenomena may weave together into one, but they do. This is the power, beauty and magic of Wyrd.

Wyrd--and all its facets--is a process with a purpose. One that is playing out within every domain of the Web: mind-body-relationship environment-soul-spirit. The more we welcome Wyrd into our awareness, the more Wyrd can return, bringing with it meaning, purpose, magic, revelation, healing, transformation, becoming, remembering, and re-membering.

 

Wyrdcraft

Though Wyrd is ultimately a mystery, Wyrd can be directly experienced and known by anyone. Wyrd can also be crafted. Fate, destiny, nature, soul, magic and becomingas manifest within the domains of mind-body-relationship-environment-soul-spiritcan be crafted. Much of this crafting has to do with Wyrd's purposeful processes of revelation, healing, transformation, and becoming. The implications of this process are profound, they are holistic, they are life-saving and world-saving.

There are different facets to this kaleidoscopic process of wyrdcraft. My book, Wyrdcraft: Healing Self and Nature Through the Mysteries of the Fates (Llewellyn Publications, 2023) walks the reader through them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every person’s wyrd—every person's mind-body-relationship-environment-soul-spirit fate, destiny, nature, soul, etc.—is unique, therefore, every person’s crafting will also be unique. I wonder what your wyrdcraft might look like? Let us explore this together. If you're interested in attuning to and exploring your wyrd and communing with the Wyrd, say hello. Let's inquire into your wyrd holisticaly—intellectually, phenomenologically, psychologically, relationally, ecologically, spiritually and magically. Let's see where your path into revelation, healing-transformation and becoming is going. What is your fate, your destiny? What is the nature of your soul? What is your purpose? And how will your healing-transformation, in turn, affect the fate, destiny and nature of your and our communities, ecosystems and world?
