The Sacred Flame Podcast explores our ancestral story-worlds: the ancient foundation narratives that helped guide our ancestors in life. In this podcast, we reinvigorate the modern world with those stories and bring us back to a place of balance through an archaic revival, a new force that is sourced from the old, forgotten knowledge that was once transmitted in living stories in sacred settings. We gather by the sacred flame and revive the old ways of creating community in the world; by listening to nature and reestablishing the ties that let us realize that we are connected with everything that exists.Our ancestors knew that cultivating the right relationships with the other-than-human beings in the world is the key to living a good life. In this podcast, I am retelling and reconnecting the Nordic story-world with our current reality and offering my thoughts on how you can use these stories to reflect on what it means to exist in the modern world.

    Can’t express my gratitude that Mathias is sharing his research with the care and reverence of someone who abides in the Nordic story world as a living tradition, instead of a dead artifact to be examined and studied. We’re all very lucky in this community to have an academic and storyteller with the skill and nuance to force us to slow down and think deeper about how this stuff matters on an interrelational and cosmic level.

    I found it ironic that Mathias basically referred to Ben Shapiro as a white supremacies when he’s Orthodox Jew in Vikings and whiteness.
