Seiðr Initiation Intensive
Future Dates TBA
Rate: $450 (rate increases for out-of-state training)
Prerequisite: Proficiency with entering altered states of consciousness and spiritual protection practices. Participants must also have a strong connection to their core self and be in good mental health. Participants should have at least one well ancestral lineage complete (see ancestral lineage healing).
This is not a course for those new to spiritual practice. See the Seiðr Foundational Training for a beginning course.
Content: Participants are introduced to the cosmology and practice of seiðr, an ancient oracular trance mediumship* practice from the Germanic/Norse regions of Europe. Participants will take initiatory journeys to the Tree of Life, the Norns, the most compassionate forms of the seiðr tutelary deities Freya, Hella, and Odin, and be initiated into High Seat practice. We will explore the use of the staff as a medicine ally for seiðr work, song as a journey method, and how to apply seiðr practice in service to the modern world. Initiates will be able to incorporate seiðr methods into existing spiritual practices and will be able to serve as practitioners on community High Seats.
*Please note that we practice conscious, consent-driven mediumship. Mediumship is a practice of merging with other forms of consciousness, in this case the most compassionate aspects of the deities of seiðr. Practitioners will be expected to maintain personal sovereignty and accountability at all times.*
