Friđ and Griđ or Frith and Grith are deified female entities in the Edda poems. Their names translate to Peace and Truce. They form the basis of legal, cultural, social, and healing contracts in Old Norse and Anglo-Saxon culture. They have much to teach us today in these times that seem devoid of boundaries and high functioning interactions. The Gĺrden Gates tool teaches about these goddesses, about the words Thew, custom or law and Gefrain, reputation, about the concepts of ingĺrd and utgĺrd (inside the fence and outside the fence), and about hale and unhale (healthy and unhealthy) interactions, behaviors, thoughts, and relationships.
Frigg, whose name means Beloved, is the All-Mother of the Norse pantheon. Her examples teach us how to process triggering information through a silence and careful logic that allows us to express our feelings factually and set boundaries that relate to the Gĺrden Gates tool for boundary setting spiritually, emotionally, and physically. The tool for this is called Frigg's Hand. Runes that correspond to these goddesses and these processes include Gifu, Nauthiz, Ansuz, and Mannaz. The roles of the Norns Urđ, Verđandi, and Skuld (Is, Becoming, and Should) and the trinity of Odin, Villi, and Ve (The Spirit, Will, and Holiness) will also be explored in the context of these two tools. Bring a paper big enough to trace your hand and create the tool, Frigg's Hand on one side and Gĺrden Gates on the other side.
