Welcome on the Silver Ship of the Valar!
This is the discussion forum of Ilsaluntë Valion and Tië eldaliéva: two historically related groups of people interested in the deeper philosophical, spiritual and imaginative backgrounds of the work of J.R.R. Tolkien.
The differences in a nutshell: Tië eldaliéva is more Pagan-oriented and has an official status as a non-profit organisation, Ilsaluntë Valion is more Gnostic-oriented, and less publicly visible. They have a shared origin that goes back to 2006.
Only a small part of the forum is publicly visible. If you like to know more, we encourage you to either:
- register as a member of Tië eldaliéva: find out more on their Facebook page. You can also check out elvenspirituality.com to learn more;
- or create an account on the Ilsaluntë Valion forum here
Both will grant access to this forum, though there are some dedicated areas for either group.
