    Appreciating the time and effort you put into your website and detailed
    information you offer. It’s good to come across a blog every
    once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material.
    Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. Whitney MacDonald says:

    If you really want to take your research to the next level I would recommend looking into Rudolf Steiner’s work. You are on the verge of real spiritual insight and Steiner would really hit home for you I think. He writes extensively about the Mystery Centers and you would appreciate the depth he adds to what you already have discovered. He writes about the Norse myths in his lecture series “The Mission of the Folk Souls” but one needs to understand a lot of anthroposophy to follow these lectures. I would suggest “Theosophy” as a start though some begin with “Philosophy of Freedom”. Eventually “Occult Science” will be important for your research and very meaningful to you. If you could find someone familiar with Steiner (perhaps through a Waldorf school) to discuss these as you go it would be helpful. Good luck to you. You are on the right path and this is really important work you are doing.

    Dear Mrs. Kvilhaug,

    I would like to thank you very much for your inspiring book and also the lovely-lively lectures on youtube.
    Overseeing your list of literature I couldn’t find the publication of Grønbech, Vilhelm: Vor Folkaert i Oltiden, Kopenhagen, 1909/12.
    I have read it once in a german translation: Wilhelm Grönbech: Kultur und Religion der Germanen, Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft Darmstadt, 1987, 10. Auflage, ISBN: 3-534-00943-6
    Maybe you would enjoy this too. There seem to be considerable conceptual overlap with your conceptions.

    Please continue your great work!

    Greetings G. Taubert
