Thank you so much for visiting the home of Elven Spirituality! This is Tië eldaliéva, meaning the Elven Path, or the Path of the Star-people.
The co-founders came together online for the purpose of creating a spiritual path that is based on the Elven viewpoint put forth in Professor JRR Tolkien‘s Middle-Earth stories, collectively known as the “Legendarium” and include The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. However, most of the materials used for the creation and practice of the Elven Path are the posthumous publications, which would be considered the origins or the historical back-stories. These especially include The Silmarillion, the Lost Tales I and II, Unfinished Tales, and Morgoth’s Ring (Vol. X of the History of Middle-Earth, or HoME, series).
The reasons for doing so are varying due to the individual, but overall, there is a prevalent understanding that Tolkien’s stories, which he began writing in 1917, are a valid mytho-history and after applying this deep and touching material to our current spiritual understandings, it has been discovered the materials do indeed relay all one needs – and if there are outside ideas present already that help fill it in, so much the better. A great explanation can be found by reading Calantirniel’s Interview with Author Emily Carding, of which most is published in her book published through Llewellyn, Faerie Craft!
This is not a Role-Playing Game (RPG), but a genuine spiritual practice that although best practiced as a standalone, it can enhance certain understandings of any and all spiritual backgrounds that is based on love, balance and the flow of nature.
While we welcome those who are on an identity discovery path (i.e. types that are exploring “elvenness” through the otherkin paradigm), the actual intentions of the Elven Path are toward the PATH itself, rather than the identity of the traverser.
Tië eldaliéva is all about education and outreach, to bring awareness to the spiritual seeker of the existence of this deep and beautiful spiritual path that will speak to the hearts of the right people that wish to follow such a path. Please explore our blog/articles, calendar and resource pages, which also include Elvish linguistic learning sources.
