Saturday 8th November

- Alexa Duir - An Honouring of Rivers
- Jenny Blain - Finding Ancestors in the local landscape
- Malcolm Campbell - Outsiders - how echoes of northern shamanism
survived in Scotland
Malcolm is our guest speaker. He is looking at hints of Scandanavian
shamanic traditions which can be found in Scottish culture and
folklore - from a personal experiential perspective. He says the
theme of the talk will be about how those who are a bit "different"
are always outsiders in Scotland.. and how these things survive in a
militantly christian environment.. He adds, 'I'll talk about the
Norsemen in Gaelic Scotland, and traditions and language I've
personally come across.. second sight, frithing, words like warlock,
argi, .. and what it means to someone trying to explore seidr in

The image on this page shows a small part of the Glasgow Eastern Necropolis: now in some disrepair, still holding the bones of many of Jenny's ancestors, just as the neighbouring area of the Forge (now a vast shopping and retail centre) still holds their memories. (Click image for a larger picture.)
