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. The author provides step-by-step instructions to prepare for and conduct shamanic rituals and ceremonies.
Following the devastating earthquake in 2015, Rysdyk and 27th-generation Nepalese shaman Banstola decided to safeguard the ancient spiritual traditions of Nepal with this guide. They include authentic Himalayan techniques for physical and spiritual healing, shamanic journeys, advanced ceremonies, exercises to meet your ancestors, and practices for negotiating the spirit world safely.
