Att vandra i skönhet i världen

Här hittar du mina tankar om världen och om Drömtiden och om vad det innebär att tänka och vandra i skönhet. Denna blogg söker realisera den gamla nordiska definitionen av begreppet visdom som insikt i världen och i det fördolda.

Seidr 5.0 – A Guide to Nordic Shamanism

The first Swedish edition of Seidr was published in 1985. The English version is based on the fifth edition that was published in 2016 and is focused on the distinctive features of Nordic shamanism.

The book is both a theoretical and a practical guide to Nordic shamanism with extensive accounts of sacred sites, non-ordinary reality, Dreamtime, vision quests, soul journeys, power, magic, runes, seidr, ceremonies and shamanic medicine.

Seidr 5.0 incorporates new perspectives on synchronicities and archetypes as well as impulses from quantum physics, alchemy and deep psychology in an attempt to develop Nordic shamanism in a creative direction. It is really about time to publish an English edition of Nordic shamanism and its creative possibilities in the twenty-first century.

Shamanism is about finding and walking one’s own way. The aim of this book is to serve as a manual and a guide to the strange world of the Nordic shaman – a world that is possible to enter for anyone who is willing to let go of self-importance and start walking in humility on Mother Earth.

This is the opinion of the Saami shaman Eirik Myrhaug after reading Seidr 5.0: ”Eriksson has a Nordic starting point for his shamanism, but he has also been much inspired by Saami shamanism. He also brings in perspectives from quantum physics into a shamanic world view and that makes the book very up to date. It can be used as an encyclopedia of shamanism. This book is recommended!”
