Notes on locations: Early in the 21st Century, events of what
became the Church of Balder Rising — lectures, meditation sessions,
practice in Seither and Galdor science, celebrations — were held at ad
hoc locations in northeast New Jersey — hotel and library meeting rooms,
meeting halls. Later we gained the use of grounds at our mailing
address. Within a year after Ralph Fucetola and Kathy Greene moved
to that location in 1996 along with the Lifespirit Church, Rev. Ralph
had built in the glen below the parsonage the first of what turned out
to be a series of rune circles — a medicine wheel where he would
A sensitive, Robert Youngman, found an energetic spot in the glen that animals seemed to sense as well. Although that exact site was not suitable, a fire circle particularly favored by Rev. Kathy was inaugurated near it on which would eventually be constructed a second rune circle, and then a third close to it, as seen in the pages of photos linked above. Rev. Ralph also built an open-loop path over which one could walk the Futhark around the parsonage. Close to those locations, Vril Lord Will DeVito built with his own hands a mead hall whose interior may be seen in the photos.
The Church of Balder Rising has come a long way in facilities. We have acquired a permanent
home in the NY-NJ-Pennsylvania region and have built a Great Hall there.
