Altarproject.org is Up & Running [30 Jul 2007|01:48am]


Hey everyone,

I just wanted to drop a quick note to those who might be interested that the web domain for the 30 Day Altar Project is up and running (at about 80% live) at http://www.altarproject.org

The 30 Day Altar Project is a devotional art experiment dedicated to the Northern Gods & Elemental Deities. The way it works is that every contributor spends a few minutes every day meditating on a deity and one aspect of their influence and then looks around and collects owned, given, found, or nominal cost items that make up the items that will go on an altar to be erected in a public place. At the end of the 30 day period, the altar is set up, photos are taken, and the contributor records their experiences. Its both a creative and spiritual exercise, and by seeing others' altars it teaches us how others view the high ones. The project is intended to be international in scope, so if you don't see your country represented, please think about doing a piece. One of the goals is to increase mindfulness in worship and to expand practitioners' understanding of the High Ones through art. From July 2007-July 2008 altars to the Northern Gods will be erected in public all over the world.

We are actively seeking submissions from those who work with and honor the Gods of the North. All of the information for submitting projects can be found on the website or on our blog at http://altarproject.livejournal.com

A bunch of projects have been promised and the site will be updated frequently. Please set your bookmarks and check back often. The project is intended to represent a diversity of belief and is not relegated to the Heathen community.

Heathen Devotional Art Project Seeks Submissions [23 May 2007|11:19am]

Please Circulate Widely:

The Gods are Everywhere if only you look for Them.

The 30-Day Altar Project is seeking contributions. The goal is to create an international cross-representational series of altars displayed in public places all over the world dedicated to Norse/Germanic Gods and Elemental Deities. This will eventually be web based and viewable to all.

How it works. Focus on one trait or aspect of one of the Norse Gods or Elemental Deities that applies to or is needed in your life at the moment. Meditate on this charachteristic and God for a minimum for five minutes a day for thirty days. During this time, look around you for items you find in your day to day life that symbollize this charachteristic. Items used may be found, owned, or given and the only limits are your creativity. If you must buy something, it should be of nominal cost (less than about $10 USD). Collect the items. At the end of the 30 day period, you will install an altar in a public place of your choosing. Photographs and interviews will be shared on our pending website.

Anyone can do this. You don't need to be an artist. Challenge your kindred to all give it a go, involve your older kids and teens, post to your regional elists, print out this post and put it up in a local pagan shop or pass out at your next religious gathering. Forward this to all of your Northern Tradition friends. The idea is that it is diverse and represents a wide range of people's experiences living Heathen faith, so that we may enrich one another and give thought to the way that the Gods are part of our everyday lives.

Check the below site for submission guidelines.


Feel free to friend this account to your blog, as the blog will be used to announce project updates and additions.

Please direct any questions to altarproject@gmail.com

Thank You

And Her flesh became the earth and the heavens. [03 Jun 2005|06:02pm]

I am a Woman. I am complete. I am a whole, great circle. I need no man to fulfill me, as society tells me. The truth is, men need women. They are incomplete, so they project their sense of emptiness onto us, they tell us we need them so we will fill the hole in their souls. But what a woman really needs is Herself, her Sisters, and her Goddess. Hail Tiamat!

Right, hail Ladies.

Here is some of the grapics/art I have done with the Temple in mind. What do you think? Most are designed for a black background which I don't know how to change in LJ so please bear that in mind.

Grapics behind the cutCollapse )

Coments? Anyone?

I just stumbled across this group and was wondering what if any work is done with the Norse Goddess Hel within ToH?

Welcome to the Temple of Hel [11 Sep 2004|09:05pm]

Dark Sisters,

Thank you for joining me here. I'm excited about getting the temple moving and grooving again...wink.

I'd like to start by asking everyone to introduce themselves and tell us what's been going on in your life the last few months.

I have been super busy with school. I have a really good job that I enjoy thoroughly, so now I've become somewhat of a workaholic lol. My personal like has gotten much better. Things just seem to be working out all around.

Thanks again for joining TToH!

In Darkness,
