Building From Within
The Free Folk is committed to building a strong and healthy Folk. As part of this commitment we make the following offerings available to the Greater Folkish Heathen community:
The Free Folk hosts monthly pubmoots at Apis Mead & Winery in Carnegie. Pubmoots are generally hosted every first Friday of the month, from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. Please check our Facebook group page for the next scheduled pubmoot. Moots include meeting, discussion, fellowship, and networking opportunities for local Folkish Heathens. Meet like-minded folk, learn about what our tribe offers, and share discourse about philosophy, folkway, ethics, socioeconomics, and other topics. Pubmoots are open to the public. RSVP is appreciated. Check-in and round table for Tribesmen and Fosterlings from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m.
The Free Folk hosts folkmoots at our Mother Hall four times a year. Folkmoots are one-day (usually a Saturday) events, consisting of workshops, readings, lectures, or other inspirational or educational activity, a potluck meal, round table, games, and movies. Pre-approval is required for attendance at folkmoots. Please contact us if interested in attending a folkmoot.
The Free Folk offers guided meditation practice for individuals and small groups in person and via Skype. Meditation offers many benefits, including stress release, mental clarity, and union with higher self and the Folk mind. Guided practice (approx. 60 to 75 minutes) includes ways to prepare the body for sitting, development of good breathing, visualization, vibratory therapy, and the concentration and deep relaxation required for meditation. Yogic techniques are modeled. There is no fee for this offering, however donations are accepted and appreciated. Please contact us if interested in participating in a guided practice.
Folkish Belief-based Counseling
The Free Folk offers counseling services to Folkish Heathens confronted with personal, moral, and life challenges. We take a five-fold approach to problem solving that encompasses the mental, spiritual, relational, physical, and material considerations for the client. Consultations are available by phone, Skype or in person. Fee is on a sliding scale and based upon ability to pay. For more information or to schedule a consultation, please contact us.
