Meet the Rituals & Ceremonialist Team
Solskin Festival wouldn't be anything without the amazing team of Priestesses and Priest we have. They will be holding various rituals, ceremonies and workshops throughout the weekend.
All rituals and ceremonies will welcome all paths and faiths in whichever deities you follow including Norse Pagan.
Priestesses of The Myrkvidr Temple
Jenna & Tori
We have come together to create a pop up temple in which others can experience a true Norse temple. In visiting us you will be in the presence of the Norse Gods and Goddesses in a sacred space created by working Völvas. It's a place where you can make an offering to the Gods and Goddesses, sit in complementation, perhaps ask a question, and seek the answer.
We invite you to come meet us and be in our space, we welcome all to our space. An ethos of our temple is that it is open to all faiths, all genders and children. However, being mind-full that this is a quiet space, and we would ask that visitors respect each other and the space they are entering. Shoes are to be removed before entering the temple and at busy times you may be asked to wait outside a little until space is available. If you would like a one to one session to visit the temple and spend time with one of the priestesses for a reading or blessing this can be arranged on the day.
