An interesting look at the art of Seidr Although widely dismissed as a notion of seidr boiling, rolling and swaying, the work is as effective as any in describing a possible link between what is known of seidr very little and the shamanic arts Fries clearly has a system which works, for others as well as the author, that is worth reading and experimentation with. While the scholars find fault with Jan s book, I find the book well written with some potent exercises of change art within these pages. My favorite because Jan devotes a chapter to the Sami. a very good book on techniques for entering trance states This book appeals to the anthropologist in me I love that Fries explores Shamanic traditions all over the world in this book, giving reference to their similar practices to that of Seidh Magick There is a bit of instruction, but I had wished for However, I understand that one can read about shamanism all day long, but experiencing is worth so much than the reading. Another solid offering from Jan Fries On some level, I think this basically represents a collection of answers to the question What next after doing the work suggested in Helrunar.I ve experimented seething shaking trance Fries advocates in this book, and I will vouch for its efficacy in opening up blocks and providing access to a different state of consciousness than is readily available.
