The Gjallgard Kindred

Asatru/Northern Tradition Paganism


Let no man glory in the greatness of his mind,
but rather keep watch o'er his wits.
Cautious and silent let him enter a dwelling;
to the heedful comes seldom harm,
for none can find a more faithful friend
than the wealth of mother wit.

Call For Participants

Hello everyone! Our names are Lauren Ripley and Clive Baldwin.  We are researchers working from St. Thomas University in Fredericton, N.B. Canada. Clive is Professor of Social Work and Canada Research Chair in Narrative Studies (, and Lauren is an Honours student.  We are working on a research project focusing on spirituality, in particular people’s spiritual journeys and their spiritual identities.  We are interested in speaking with as many people as possible, from as wide a range of faiths, religions, and spiritualities as possible.
We are currently looking for participants who describe themselves as Pagan, Wicca, Druid, Asatru, Heathen, or adhering to any Earth religion.  
We are posting here today to invite you to participate in an interview for this research. Interviews usually last between 1 -1.5 hours, and are simply just a chance for us to learn about your story. If you would like more information about participating in an interview please get in touch with either of us by email, and we will be pleased to send you an information sheet, and consent form, so that you may look over the particulars. Alternatively, all this information can be found on our website ( or our Facebook group, which we have linked below]
If you would be interested in participating in an interview, or simply want more information, have questions, or need clarification on anything please contact us through this Facebook, or via email at or
If you are interested in learning more on your own accord, we encourage you to join one of our Facebook groups (or more than one), as project information, consent forms, as well as any updates on the project can be found here:
We hope to hear from you!
