about

This accessible study of Northern European shamanistic practice, orseidr,explores the way in which the ancient Norse belief systems evoked in the Icelandic Sagas and Eddas have been rediscovered and reinvented by groups in Europe and North America. The book examines the phenomenon of altered consciousness and the interactions ofseid-workersor shamanic practitioners with their spirit worlds. Written by a follower ofseidr,it investigates new communities involved in a postmodern quest for spiritual meaning.
Jenny Blain is a senior lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University where she leads the MA in Social Research Methods. Her research interests centre on issues of identity, gender, paganism and shamanism, social theory and experiential ethnography.
