about birch & brisingamen
Birch & Brisingamen is Heathen owned and operated, queer owned and operated, and Black owned and operated. As a practicing Heathen, I've noticed a need for more diverse representation and a need for a stronger commitment to anti-racism within the community.
I work closely with Frigg and Freya, so Birch & Brisingamen seemed like the perfect name to honour each of them. Both are known for their skill as magick workers. Frigg is known for her diplomacy and leadership, while Freya is known for her role in battle and governing love and sexuality.
