The Wild Hunt of Frau Holle and Her Heimchen
In Europe the months of November and December are the classic time of year when the Veil is thin and we catch glimpses of a phenomenon called The Wild Hunt.
In this art video shamanic teacher and painter Imelda Almqvist explores the role of a very ancient Northern European goddess called Frau Holle, as a soul conductor for children.
There are many reports of her roaming the land and night sky accompanied by the spirits of dead children. This phenomenon is called The Wild Hunt.
In Middle Dutch the name of the Milky Way was Vroneldenstraet: the street or highway of Frau Holle. She is also known as the Hyllemoer or Elder Mother and closely associated with the spirit of the Elder Tree.
As a new religion called Christianity took over, Frau Holle became feared, even demonized. Her crucial role: patrolling the liminal zone between Life and Death was no longer understood. Her deep compassion for life, especially young life, was no longer felt.
Frau Holle deserves to return to our collective consciousness and take her rightful place as one of the most ancient goddesses of Old Europe!
