Start of Spring: An Invitation to Dream an Ode to Freya

Let’s celebrate the start of spring together! I want to invite you to join me on Mindfunda for a spring dream time celebration.

This celebration is a part of my new online courses about Norse Mythology. Are you ready to join on March 20?

 

Start of Spring: a Promise of Fertility

After a period of darkness and hunger, the light comes back again. The lack of sun produced Vitamine D has caused your body to store more fat than you would like to admit.

In Norse Mythology, Freya, whose name is sometimes spelled as Freyia, is the Queen of love and fertility. But she is more than just beauty and boobs. She is “a goddess of witchcraft,  seiðr (soothsaying), initiation, fate, death, wisdom and shape-changing” (Maria Kvilhaug in The Seed of Yggdrasil).

In this first lesson, that starts on the first day of spring March 20, you will get a more information about Freya. You will learn how she is connected to fertility and love, you will learn about her independency. You will discover how she is the goddess of faith.

Start of Spring: Shape – Shifting

Freja, Lady Sovereign, is a shape shifter. Many of you dreamers have had dreams in which you where another gender or another creature. Some of you have even shape – shifted during (lucid) dreams.

Springtime is the time for new life to come into being. Going into being is only possible by shape shifting.

How are you shaped shifting? In your life and in your dreams? Do you dare to change your form? Welcome new possibilities in your life. Embrace old traits of your personality that long to be integrated.

Spring is not only about new things. It is also about acknowledging how much your shape has shifted. You are a different person than you where a year ago. But still you feel like you. That is shape-shafting in its ultimate form.

Start of Spring: Freya as the Wicked Witch

Freya is a female shaman, a magician. In the shape of giantess Gondul she affects the fates of men. In her shape of the Great Ocean she is the Goddess of the Cosmos.

In ancient times, every woman with a wand was considered to be knowledgeable and powerful. Respected, free from harm.

This spring time celebration is an invitation to get out your wand and fly!

Introducing Mindfunda Courses

created and curated by the Mindfunda team

 

 “I had a dream. A dream that one day my own eLearning website will go live, and live out the true meaning of Mindfunda;
exploring the mind and soul on the crossroads of science, psychology, mythology and dream work.
Not replacing religion, but re-implementing a feeling of meaningful and mindful living.”

I still have that dream today and recently this dream came true!


‘It took me and my team months of planning, writing and rewriting content, investments in coding and building the site, and so much more hard labour. From April 2016 we offer a continuously growing e-learning environment for those interested in psychology, mythology and dream work. You may know our topics, preferences and voice from my blog mindfunda.com, and we provide you with even more broadening and in-depth information in compact courses of about 6 lessons each.

Composing the content of each individual lesson took us weeks of research and preparation, so each lesson is the equivalent of creating a 20-30 pages A4/Letter-sized booklet. All this is presented to you in a professional e-learning environment at reasonable prices. Later we will also add multi-level Mindfunda Memberships, so you can choose the perfect suite for your time and budget. 

Most courses have no prerequisites or entry level requirements, but only require a broad interest and your inert will to complete. To get the most of each course, you should claim some weekly spare time for yourself. But you can easily use that annoying waiting time while commuting, too. Life is too short to waste time on reading adds. We provide you with one lesson a week, where completing a quiz will test your knowledge and unlock next weeks’ lesson.

Have a look at our Courses section to see the latest content. It will be expanding continuously, but we focus on quality over quantity first.

 

Welcome and Enjoy!’
