Hail and well met, I’m Suzanne. Over the last twenty years, I have been learning and sharing knowledge about the Heathen faith. My study has been partly academic in the obtaining of a Masters degree in European Historical Archaeology, with a focus on the Scandinavian World, but also tempered with personal study, prayer and serving the community in a pastoral role. I continue to be a strong supporter of the local pagan and interfaith communities.
I have delivered workshops and lectures on aspects of modern Heathenism over the years, specialising in discourse on Heathen ethics and oracular runes. Additionally, I have performed public blot and ritual for the larger pagan community, together with private ceremony at the request of families and smaller groups. Since December 2016 and together with my wife, I have co-hosted the Frithcast fortnightly podcast, looking at modern heathenism – with a good dollop of humor, queerness and geekery thrown in.
The Heathen faith is detailed in historical sources, but it is a modern faith. My faith is valid to me now: I can look at the past for evidence of interactions, but I don’t hold that identical interactions are the only ones that someone can, or should, experience.
You are welcome to ask me heathen related stuff, if I don’t know it, I’ll do my best to find out! I’m on Facebook, Twitter @GythaInJeans or the other end of an email
I am an Active Duty SSgt (E-5) in the US Air Force and hit my 8 year mark in February 2020. I'm married with 4 cats and am currently stationed at Ramstein AFB, Germany until 2022.
I've so far spent my career overseas and have deployed twice to undisclosed locations in southwest Asia in 2014 and the middle east in 2017.
Like many, my family was Christian but for whatever reasons I was never christened/baptized. I found paganism in my "rebellious" teenage years but floated between different types until I joined the USAF in 2012.
It was then, in BMT one of the Circle leaders told me about Asatru. I spent the next few years reading and learning what I could from books, blogs, and people I came across before, for lack of a better word, experimenting. I finally knew where I fit in in the world; its been 7 years since that first encounter.
While deployed in 2017 I discovered TAC and knew I wanted to grow further in my faith and community.
I have previously been a Lay Leader and have worked with Chaplains across the globe; I hope that by becoming an Ambassador I can better assist my military and Asatru community.
Thank you for trusting in me and giving me this opportunity.
I look forward to working for and supporting TAC and its members.
