Mis deze unieke kans niet om Ingrid Kincaid, The Rune Woman, te ontmoeten, zij die zegt:
“Ik ben een Eigen-Wijze vrouw. Ik help mensen op ontdekkingstocht te gaan, hoe angstig dat soms ook kan zijn, door het stellen van vragen.
Ik nodig je uit je leven te leven vanuit het stellen van vragen en niet vanuit het idee dat er maar 1 juist antwoord bestaat.
Als je de moed hebt met mij samen te werken, spiritueel, persoonlijk, creatief of professioneel dan verzeker ik je dat je leven nooit meer hetzelfde zal zijn”

Ingrid en ik verheugen ons erop je op 1 van de evenementen te ontmoeten.
Je zult geen spijt hebben van dit nieuwe avontuur.

BESCHRIJVING EVENEMENTEN

1. Introduction Lost Teachings of the North, Saturday May 20th, 2pm-4pm, 15


Join Ingrid Kincaid as she provides the beneficial background and sets the scene for her upcoming in-depth workshop about the Norse Spirit Wheel. Ingrid will share how she has come upon her knowledge of the Wisdom of the North and provide the information that will allow you to sink into a deeper understanding and vibration for her later workshop on the Norse Spirit Wheel.

Ingrid Kincaid is an internationally known author, educator and spiritual elder. She carries in her bloodline an intriguing mixture of a Norse woman’s love of travel and adventure and the song of the bagpipes from the Scottish Highlands. Ingrid speaks passionately about the rich spiritual heritage of Old Europe, the earth wisdom that informed the life of our indigenous ancestors before Christianity and before the Romans and she reminds those of European descent of the need to know their own forgotten indigenous heritage.

In her teaching, writing and storytelling she invites people to bring their spirituality back down to earth, reconnect with their roots and heal inherited ancestral grief.

Ingrid will be visiting The Netherlands between the dates of May 18 through June 6, 2017. She will be giving presentations and leading workshops as well as offering private spiritual guidance sessions.

2. The Lost Teachings of the North, Sunday May 21st, 10am – 4pm (break for lunch), 60
Living Wisdom Of The Norse Spirit Wheel

This day-long workshop taught by Ingrid Kincaid is an interactive mixture of earth wisdom, rune lore, storytelling and guided meditation. Weaving together the ancient and the modern, she creates an experience where you can explore and reconnect with native wisdom and spirituality that is part of the forgotten indigenous, heritage of Old Europe.

There was a time in the past when the people of the earth lived in harmony with nature and the cycles and seasons of life.
They oriented themselves by stepping into the center of the Great Wheel, rooting themselves in the earth and looking to the horizon for the future and the past.
How can an understanding of the teachings of the Spirit Wheel benefit your life today?
Learn to use the Wisdom of the Wheel
reconnect with indigenous wisdom
find direction
regain balance
solve problems
resolve conflicts
reclaim a sense of joy and purpose
remember ancestral heritage

We will take a stand in the Center of the Spirit Wheel
We will listen to the speaking of the Winds that blow in the Four Directions
We will meet the creatures that dwell in the Wheel
We will call upon the Runes that hold the teachings

3. When Women Remember Their Names, Wednesday May 24th, 7:30pm-9:30pm, 15

What’s possible when you remember who you are?
What would you talk about if you weren’t afraid?
….afraid of being judged
….afraid of being criticized
….afraid of being embarrassed, made to feel stupid or even shamed
Who would you be?

Do you long to connect spiritually with the wisdom of the sacred feminine?
Are you hungry for a more passionate, meaningful life?
What secrets, desires or dreams have you hidden away?

For thousands of years our stories have been told by men, in their words, using their language, written in the margins of their books, if written about at all.  Our sacred wisdom has been denied and devalued in religious systems worldwide, systems that are patriarchal, misogynistic and female dishonoring.
It’s time we women reclaim our names and remember who we are.
When we remember who we are, we speak our Dark Moon Wisdom
through the Mystery of Our Creativity
through the Mystery of Our Sexuality
through the Mystery of Our Spirituality

4. The Missing Grandmother Of the North, Friday May 26th, 7:30-9:30pm, 15

We Europeans have wandered spiritually for many years.
We have sat at the Sacred Fires of many peoples, of many colors and many languages.
We have copied their practices and rituals.
We have adopted their symbols and art.
We have embraced their spiritual beliefs.
It’s time we returned home.
It time we remember our own sacred history.
It’s time we sit, once again. by the Sacred Fire, with our own grandmother, the Native Indigenous European Wise Woman.
She is not a woman of color.
She is not from the land of other.
She is our Grandmother.
We carry her memory in our bodies.
She sings to us through our bloodlines.
She is waiting to welcome us home.
She hasn’t really been missing.
We are the ones who have forgotten.

Join us for this rare opportunity to hear Ingrid Kincaid, speak about the Missing Grandmother of the North, a topic that is both challenging and provocative.

THE MISSING GRANDMOTHER

Sitting at the Well of Origin, that Pool of Wisdom, I ask: Where to find the Missing Grandmother.
Why is She missing in the world.
Why is She missing in my world.
I wrap myself around this question and listen and wait…..
What I hear is the sound of tinkling Ice, a Song so clear and still.
What I hear is the sound of tinkling Ice turning into the sound of melting Water. And the sound of melting Water is slowly changing into a soft Whispering, a Whispering that seems to come from all directions.
I wrap myself around the Whispers and wait….

Whispers of Water

I’m standing on a Path, the Woods behind me, Woods I just left after wandering around for years and years. Grandfather Oak stands in front of me and smiles at me.
“Welcome back”, he says.
“Come and sit with me and tell me about your adventures in the Woods”.
I sit down at his Foot leaning my back against his Trunk and a sigh is finding its way out before it allows words to come out.
“I have been wandering around for years and years, sitting at many Campfires of many Peoples. Meeting Grandmothers from different Cultures, from different Colors and different places. I heard a lot, I learned a lot. Stories, Songs and Dances. Ancient Wisdom seen through their Lenses. I learned a lot.
But while leaving the Woods all at the sudden I realized that I have missed one specific Fire, that I have missed one specific Grandmother, a Grandmother of the North, a white one. I didn’t found Her Sacred Fires. Did I miss it or don’t we have a Native Indigenous European Grandmother?”
Silence. “Grandfather, where is the Grandmother of the North, of my indigenous Heritage.”
“I cannot tell you where She is. You must find Her yourself. Rest a bit here and then continue your Journey. This Path will lead you into another Spiral of the Labyrinth of your Life. Only You can Walk that Spiral. Only You can Walk the Labyrinth of Your Life.”

tracks-in-the-snowAnd so after resting for a certain time I step back on the Path again, like a Cross-Country Skier stepping back in the Tracks again, to follow this Long and Winding Road, up and down and flat again, down and up and flat again, meandering like a river leaving debris on one side, showing erosion on the other side.
After a certain time I hear tinkling Ice again and the sound of melting Water. The Path widens and like a clearing in a forest there in front of me is an open space which sounds like a Cave, a large Cave.
Now I hear the sound of a burning Fire and a voice saying: “Welcome back. Welcome back. Come and sit with me by the Fire. Rest a bit and then tell me about your adventures in the Woods.”

And again I tell my story about my wandering around in the woods, sitting at many Sacred Fires, learning a lot and about missing one specific Fire, missing one specific Grandmother, She who dwells in the North.
How come that this Grandmother is missing in the world. How come that She is missing in my world.

“This Grandmother has never been missing in the world nor in yours. She has always been there. But many people are not looking into Her direction and so don’t see Her. She is not easy to find. She is not loud but silent. She is not spectacular but simple. She is hidden beyond Cultural Walls built from patriarchal Stones so one has to break down these Walls and has to dig really deep through snow and ice to get to Her. One has to reach beyond the war-like male dominant stories, songs, myths and legends to find Her, the Native European Grandmother, the white one. She belongs to the Circle of Indigenous Grandmothers but is mostly overlooked, forgotten, living so far away up in the very North. And who does like Cold and Darkness and is willing to set out on a Journey to find Her?”

“The Grandmother of the North has always been there.
Her Wisdom is Singing in your Blood, carved into your Bones, Woven into your Heart and Soul. She has been calling you and you finally heard Her and have followed Her Voice.
You can rest here as long as you wish and then I’ll send you back, back into the world. But before you go we will Sit by the Fire and I will Share the Secrets of the North with you. And I will offer you a Drink, the Mead of Memory, so that you will remember everything you’ve learned here when being back in the world. So it will be, so it will happen.”

I find myself back at the Well of Origin.
Do I still hear the sound of the burning Fire or is it the melting Water?
No, this sound is different.
What I hear is a Spinning Wheel.
Someone out there is Spinning the Threads and softly Singing a Song.
I listen and I hear a clear voice saying: “Good Morning, Granddaughter, welcome back” and a Spindle is laid in my hands.
