The importance of poetry, hymns, prayers, mantras and chants within Indo-European paganism can't be overestimated. It’s possibly the most important spiritual expression – to all the divine kindreds. The Indo-European love for beauty manifests itself in poetry and songs – words for ritual, stories of the works of the ancestors, for feasts and meetings, all passed down in an oral tradition. To us pagans, singing and chanting has always been associated with spiritual practice and with the connection to nature and its spirits. This episode is about pagan poetry, the high social status of the skald or bard and about the wonderful Dawn goddess.
