Hearthspace circles 2023

Through 2023 we open the doors to the exiles and edge-dwellers of Yggdrasil, the northern world tree. Giants, Vanir, monsters, dwarves, elves, gate-keepers and ancient beings forgotten under the layers of myth and story.  The introductory talk is broadcast live into the Hearthspace group and uploaded here for your convenience as a Hearthspace circle member. The live circles ase hosted on Zoom and then uploaded to your library so you can participate (or revisit) in your own time . 

We endeavour to upload recordings within 48 hours.
