Discussions of Heathen shamanic, magic, and divination practices in a modern context. GOTW promotes and welcomes inclusive Heathenry and stands against racist and bigoted ideals & practices. Instagram: @wyrdgifts1 Twitter: @wyrdgifts

Episode 3: This episode Jan and Laine discuss divination and the modern practice of gnosis. During the section on divination, we talk about using runes for ourselves and as part of reading for others. We also discuss Spae and Seidh and our experiences in learning and doing it.

This leads into a discussion of "gnosis" in today's practice. What is UPG (unverified personal gnosis), shared gnosis, and m.u.s (made up sh - er stuff)? Is UPG valid and useful today?
