  • Very nice! I agree with Pavlin that the photo looks very atmospheric! 🙂

    In my search into some Slovak and Czech groups of this kind, I came across an information on so-called European Congress of Ethnic Religions (ECER) – an international body that aims to assist Ethnic Religious groups in various countries and to oppose discrimination against such groups. In their declaration (http://ecer-org.eu/a-declaration-from-the-european-congress-of-ethnic-religions-english-version/) I noticed there are many countries represented, including Latvia, Lithuania (Romuva’s representatives are also signed), Poland, Greece, Italia, Czech Republic, etc.

    A group from Latvia is also mentioned, called Latvijas Dievturu Sadraudze, so I thought maybe that would be another group to look into in this country…

    Here is their website in Latvian, but on the right there is a summary about the group in English (Brief Summary about Basics of Latvian Creed (Dievturība)):

    • Thanks very much Lucia. Yes, we have come across that organization and the many groups that are linked to it. We are hoping to get some of their events up soon once we have the dates finalized.

      If you or anyone else is interested in submitting further research on similar events feel free to email the Spiritual Sun with your findings.
