Regional Lead Melanie Weed
Hail! My name is Melanie and I’ve been practicing Asatru for five years now, though I’ve been studying it closer to ten. I currently live in Meadville, Pennsylvania, where I work as an author full time. I’m currently undergoing TAC’s Clergy Training Program, and I’m looking forward to being able to further assist within the community as a Gothar. I’ve been keeping up with TAC for a few years now, though I’ve only been an official Charter Member since February. My goal is to help establish Asatru in my own and surrounding areas as something good and recognizable within the local pagan community.
Hello everyone! My name is Ella and I'm a curious soul who enjoys acquiring and sharing knowledge. I am a professional full time artist and business owner, drawing inspiration from fantasy and lore. I am also a full time student finishing up my BA in Clinical Psychology and will be moving onto my masters shortly after...
On a more personal note, I was born and raised Jewish yet found my way to paganism at a very young age. I've always loved to learn about other's cultures and faiths, shutting myself up in the library on the floor of the mythology section surrounded by myths and legends. For hours I would read about G-ds and heroes always questioning and challenging what lay before me. Transitioning to paganism was all very natural and sooner rather than later I found the Old ones. Or, perhaps they found me. Now I am on this beautiful journey with all of you, soaking in all I can and giving all I have back. This past year I have been studying under the wondrous Ivy Mulligan, learning about teutonic shamanism, the runes and everything else in between. I hope to be completing her Seidr course very soon!
In addition to being a Heathen I am also a Volva who runs an eclectic coven of witches known as Bacchans of Witchfest in the New York City area. Thus creating an open door policy for the magically inclined and allowing fellow curious beings to participate in a variety of Pagan activities. I'm always open to having discussions with all sorts of people for I believe there are many paths in the forest.
I look forward to serving TAC to the best of ability and meeting all of you in the near future!
