The cosmic mother Hel Before the Aesir- cult came to the North of Europe our ancestors worshipped
one common goddess. She reigned over fertility, life, birth and
death - the cosmic mother Hel.

We are a group of researchers, who search for the ancient history of the North.
Our name is Helandia.
http://hem.passagen.se/helandia/hel.jpg Helandia We are specially interested in the so called "golden age", a matriarchal society which existed for many thousand years and preceded our patriarchy of today. We want to meet women and men who are interested in this subject. The basis of our researches are myths, place- names, language, literature,
archeological findings and intuition. Our aim is to form study and meditation circles, who in the beginning shall be based on the scientific achievements, published in the books of Gunnel and Göran Liljenroth (http://www.algonet.se/%7Enu/liljenroth) "Folket bortom nordanvinden. Från matriarkat till mansvälde. (http://www.algonet.se/%7Enu/liljenroth/nord.htm)"(The people behind the north wind. From matriarchy to men’s domination) and
"HEL - Den gömda gudinnan i nordisk mytologi. (http://www.algonet.se/%7Enu/liljenroth/hel.htm)"
(HEL- the hidden goddess in the northern mythology).
(Both books are untill now only published in swedish)

And even before that, the Indo Europeans worshipped the Great Goddess Kolyo, from which the name Hel is derived. Kolyo meaning the "coverer" and "hidden".
