In response to Palmyra

I am so sick and angry and disgusted at what is happening in Palmyra. Daesh is a pestilence. I am a devotee of the Gods and a theologian and my only recourse is cultus. Therefore, through the winter solstice, i will be sending any of the Canaanite, Mesopotamian, or Kemetic prayer cards (especially Isis, since Her name is being corrupted) to *anyone* who wants to set up cultus to these Deities and I will be doing so for free. Since Dionysos was one of the major Deities at Palmyra too, I will also offer His cards for free. Just send me an email at krasskova at gmail.com with your address and the cards you want.

The Temple of Ba’al Shamin is threatened in Palmyra.

Let our response be a thousand new shrines to Ba’al,

a thousand new shrines to Anat,

a thousand new shrines to Inanna, Ishtar, Marduk, Enlil, Enki and all the other Gods that were once venerated in Syria and neighboring lands.

My next set of commissioned prayer cards will be to Allah’s daughters, Goddesses that were once venerated long before the scourge of Islam swept across Africa and the Middle East: Al-Uzza, Al-Allat, and Manat.

I will also offer these free. (I am open to sponsors for the cards–again, contact me at krasskova at gmail.com).

Let us build our cultus until we overwhelm and outnumber these deranged usurpers.

About ganglerisgrove

Free-range tribalist Heathen, Galina Krasskova, has been a priest of Odin and Loki since the early nineties. Originally ordained in the Fellowship of Isis in 1995, Ms. Krasskova also attended the oldest interfaith seminary in the U.S.- the New Seminary where she was ordained in 2000 and where she later worked as Dean of Second Year Students for the Academic year of 2011-2012. She has even given the opening prayer at the United Nations Conference “Women and Indigeny”. Beyond this, she took vows as a Heathen gythia in 1996 and again in 2004, She is the head of Comitatus pilae cruentae and a member of the Starry Bull tradition. She has been a member of numerous groups through the years including the American Academy of Religion. She has also served previously as a state government contracted expert on the Asatru faith, and been a regular contributor to various print and online publications geared towards modern pagans and polytheists, and for a time had her own radio program: Wyrd Ways Radio Live. Ms. Krasskova holds diplomas from The New Seminary (2000), a B.A. in Cultural Studies with a concentration in Religious Studies from Empire State College (2007), and an M.A. in Religious Studies from New York University (2009). She has completed extensive graduate coursework in Classics (2010-2016) and is pursuing a Masters in Medieval Studies at Fordham University (expected graduation 2019) with the intention of eventually doing a PhD in theology. She has also been teaching University classes in Greek and Latin. As part of her academic career Ms. Krasskova has written a number of academic articles, and also presented at various academic conferences including Harvard University, Claremont University, Fordham University, Ohio State University, Western Michigan University, Villanova University, and the City University of New York. An experienced diviner and ordeal master, her primary interest is in devotional work and the reconstruction of Northern Tradition shamanism. Her very first book, The Whisperings of Woden was the landmark first devotional text to be written in modern Heathenry. Ms. Krasskova has a variety of published books available running the gamut from introductory texts on the Northern Tradition, as well as books on shamanism, runes, prayer, and devotional practices. She is also the managing editor of “Walking the Worlds,” a peer-reviewed academic style journal focusing on contemporary polytheism and spirit work and the first journal of polytheology. While very busy with teaching and school, she does also occasionally lecture around the country on topics of interest to contemporary Heathenry and polytheisms. A passionate supporter of the arts Ms. Krasskova enjoys going to the opera, theater, and ballet. Her affection for the arts began early as she discovered dance, which she pursued professionally becoming a ballet dancer: first with a regional company in Maryland, then in New York City. After suffering career ending injuries, she would find new forms of expression in the visual arts. For a few years Ms. Krasskova co-owned an art gallery in the Hudson River Valley of New York, and over a course of numerous years she has studied a multitude of art mediums: glassblowing, watercolor, acrylic, photography and more! She is now an avid collage artist, acrylic painter and watercolorist and has even enjoyed placement in international artist-in-residencies programs in New York, New Mexico, and Poland. Her work has been exhibited globally from New York to Paris. She has taken her passion for the arts and polytheistic devotion, to create the Prayer Card Project. Since so much religious iconography has been destroyed, or defaced in the course of human history, she is actively making new religious prayers and iconography available to the various modern polytheistic communities to support those who are building their religious communities, building their devotional practices, and hungering for art that represents their religious faith. All while also supporting the artists within these burgeoning communities.

  1. When Hadrian was in Palmyra, he made offerings in Allat’s temple. May Hadrian and Antinous support the efforts to crush Daesh out of existence as well.

  2. I will get in touch with you in a day or two. I will purchase a few prayer cards and I will NOT take them for free, but right now I am deciding which divinities…
