THE NORSE SHAMAN: ANCIENT SPIRITUAL PRACTICES OF THE NORTHERN TRADITION

by Evelyn C. Rysdyk

PUBLISHED BY Inner Traditions/Destiny Books September 2016, The Norse Shaman, is available for pre-order from bookstores across the U.S.A., Canada and Europe.

Shamanism is humanity’s oldest spiritual tradition. In much of the Western world, the indigenous pre-Christian spiritual practices have been lost. Yet at the northern fringes of Europe, Christianity did not displace the original shamanic practices until the end of the Viking age. Remnants of Norse shamanic spirituality have survived in myths, folk traditions, and written records from Iceland, providing many clues about the ancient European shaman’s world, especially when examined in conjunction with other shamanic cultures in northern Eurasia, such as the Sami and the tribes of Siberia.

  • Includes shamanic journeys to connect with deities and your ancestral shamans
  • Provides step-by-step instructions to prepare for and conduct a seiðr ceremony
  • Draws on archaeological evidence and surviving written records from Iceland
  • Reveals the long tradition of female shamans in northern European shamanism

Reconstructing the shamanic practices of the hunter-gatherers of Scandinavia, Evelyn Rysdyk explores the evolution of Norse shamanism from its earliest female roots to the pre-Christian Viking Age. She explains how to enter Yggdrasil, the World Tree, to travel to other realms and provides shamanic journeys to connect with the ancestral shamans of your family tree, including the Norse goddess Freyja, the very first shaman. She offers exercises to connect with the ancient goddesses of fate, the Norns, and introduces the overnight wilderness quest of útiseta for reconnecting with the powers of nature. She explains the key concepts of Ørlög and Wyrd—the two most powerful forces that shape human lives—and provides exercises for letting go of harmful behavior patterns and transforming simple knowledge into profound wisdom by connecting with Óðinn.

Thoroughly examining the shamanic rituals of seiðr, the oracular magic of the Nordic cultures, the author provides step-by-step instructions to prepare for and conduct a seiðr ceremony, including creating your own seiðr staff and hood, and explores the ancestral use of shamanic songs or varðlokur to accompany the ceremony. Woven throughout these exercises, Rysdyk provides archaeological evidence from Neolithic sites supporting the long tradition of venerating wise women, grandmothers, and mothers in ancient cultures and the important role of female shamans at the heart of northern European shamanism. Providing an accessible guide for anyone trying to fulfill their shamanic callings, these powerful rituals can provide personal healing and a clear path for finding our way into a harmonious relationship with the natural world.

Seiðr chanting to accompany The Norse Shaman!

NORSE SHAMAN: SEIÐR VARÐLOKUR
CD of Northern European Shamanic Chanting

norseoraclecdNorse Shaman-Seiðr Varðlokur is brand new recording that is a perfect accompaniment to Evelyn Rysdyk’s book, The Norse Shaman. The recording was designed to support a seiðr ritual and is especially useful for solo practitioners.

During the seiðr ritual, the völva or shamanic seeress would enter the realms of the ancestors to seek prophesy. Her shamanic journeys through the roots of the magical, World Tree, Yggdrasil were supported by the haunting sounds of a women’s chorus. While no records of traditional varðlokur exist, they were probably repetitive, sing-song melodies that would assist the seer in achieving and holding a trance state. From reports written in the Icelandic Sagas, it is most likely that there were some of these songs that were common knowledge among practitioners. In addition, it is also likely that each völva had a number of personal varðlokur for connecting with power, performing different kinds of magic or contacting individual spirits.

The reconstruction varðlok on this recording is meant to assist in achieving and holding trance during a seiðr ritual. It is sung in a minor key in keeping with Viking Age sensibilities. Accompanying the vocals are the wild sounds of nature, cow horn, staff and raven calls. The recording also includes an opening galdr (poetic chant/decree) and closing galdr with callback signal.

This is consciousness altering music that may be used for shamanic journeying, meditation or dreaming. (© 2016 Spirit Passages)

This recording is available for download on iTunes and through CDBaby!

Shamanism is an ancient spirituality rooted in the belief that all matter has consciousness and that accessing the spirit in all things is part of what keeps the world and people healthy and in balance.

…It is just a well written, sober introduction to the beauty of these ancient ways that is cross-cultural, heartful and accurate. It places the sacred right in the centre – where it should be. A fabulous book for total newbies and for those of us with a few shamanic air-miles under our belts. Excellent!
—Sacred Hoop Magazine review

What I love about listening to Evelyn Rysdyk discuss shamanism is her ability to combine ancient lore with modern science so seamlessly that you would swear you can’t have one without the other. With the lyrical voice of an artist she taps into our memories of old, ‘forgotten’ ways and helps us understand them in terms of the latest findings in physics, psychology, and ecology. She is a wonderful guide for spirit walking between the worlds. Walk with her.
—Tom Cowan, author of Fire in the Head and Yearning for the Wind

Life is a sacred work … How easy it is to forget that in the rush of daily life! And how wonderful it is when a book like this comes along, not only reminding us of our deepest sense of connection and purpose, but offering wise guidance to help us get back to it.
—Hillary S. Webb, author of Traveling between the Worlds: Conversations with Contemporary Shamans

I love this book and absolutely appreciate the work that Evelyn Rysdyk is doing. If you are a practitioner of any faith and feel a calling too a deeper connection too Spirit I absolutely suggest this book as a starting point for that journey.
—Jonathan E. Emmett



A SPIRIT WALKER’S GUIDE TO SHAMANIC TOOLS

by Evelyn C. Rysdyk

” A Spirit Walker’s Guide to Shamanic Tools, is a richly illustrated guide on how to create, decorate, consecrate and use various shamanic tools in ritual and healing. In these pages, you will find information about rattles, drums, masks, mirrors, spirit figures, fans, bells, pouches, wands, flutes whistles and more. Rysdyk presents the reader with a wonderful guide to the many amazing implements that shamans have used around the world. Weiser Books, 2014

“Having an intimate connection to all the spirits that came together in my rattle–knowing that the tiny pebbles in my favorite rattle came from the local riverbank, the handle is wood harvested from a lightning-struck maple in my yard, and the rawhide was once part of a Maine black bear hunted by a native friend for food–gives it a far deeper meaning and power.” –From the back cover.

$19.00 on Barnes & Noble


This is a truly fabulous and important book. Ritual objects are an essential part of every shamanic tradition on earth, and yet despite decades of my own personal study about them, I have never ever before come across a simple, accurate, down-to-earth book about them – showing their wide variety and explaining their use. With the author’s accurate and very fine pen and ink drawings, the book draws on a number of sacred traditions – the main ones that we generally think of when we think of shamanism: Siberia, Native North and South America,Tibet and Nepal. Evelyn Rysdyk knows these traditions personally, she has studied them long and hard, and she is very knowledgable about them, and puts this knowledge clearly and lovingly into the pages…

EXPLORING OUR MULTIDIMENSIONAL SELVES: A SHAMANIC PERSPECTIVE

by C. Allie Knowlton, MSW, LCSW, DCSW Foreword by Evelyn Rysdyk

Multidimensional SMALL COVER ArtThis book is about making a paradigm shift. While the intention is to support all of us to define ourselves and our reality differently it began as a personal spiritual journey. The non-physical spirit teachers I work with reminded me that, before coming into my present lifetime, I had made a soul agreement to participate in an exploration. This exploration has evolved over seventy years of my life, allowing me to develop relationships with beings in other dimensionswho I choose to call “our multidimensional neighbors.” -Allie Knowlton

Like the sailors of the fifteenth century, today’s explorers need to be willing to travel beyond the map. To do this we need to gather our metaphoric compasses and sextants then develop our skills, faith and courage to take us the rest of the way.” -Evelyn Rysdyk from the Foreword

ODIANA

by C. Allie Knowlton, MSW, LCSW, DCSW

Odiana CoverMany years ago, I sat by the bedside of my dying mother, I heard a strong Spirit voice say, “In two years your life will be completely different.” There was no time to wonder what that “voice” meant. At that time I was in graduate school, working full time in a mental health center and was a wife and mother. I knew by the way the voice resonated deep within me that I would understand when the time was right.

This book is a narrative, personal account, of what my “completely different” would become. Because of it’s personal nature I have been reluctant to offer it beyond selected friends. However, on the eve of my 70th birthday my Spirit teacher asked me, “What are you waiting for?”

I offer this book as encouragement for the wisdom it may uncover on your own journey. This story is a snapshot of a time in my life that brought me profound change. It appears here in its original, typed manuscript form. -Allie Knowlton

SHAMANIC JOURNEY DRUMMING: SPIRIT PASSAGES

drummingcdSpirit Passages has produced a new shamanic drumming recording featuring the powerful sound of six drums! This recording has been digitally mastered to produce the richest acoustic depth and full tonal range necessary to alter consciousness for the purpose of making shamanic journeys and includes an opening call to the helping healing spirits.

When shamans journey to the spirit realm, they enter a trance-like state of consciousness. While in this state, the brain generates patterns which are known as theta waves. These theta waves are characterized by a 4-cycle-per-minute rhythm observable through the use of an EEG. Research into altered states have determined that the deepest states of shamanic consciousness may be accessed by listening to rhythmic drumming of 4-beats-per-second. Because these rhythms replicate the pulses generated by the brain during the theta state, the type of insistent, rapid drumming found on this recording can provide support for moving into the shamanic state of consciousness.
