Spinning Wyrd: A Journey Through the Nordic Mysteries (Paperback)
Expanding on the radically inclusive practices presented in The Way of Fire and Ice, this next-step book teaches you how to tap into the forces of the Nordic cosmos. The greatest of these forces is Wyrd, the symphony of life co-created by the actions of all beings, from the humblest plants to the mightiest gods.
Ryan Smith guides you deep into the mysteries, where you'll discover the role of Fate, the importance of the Nine Worlds, the Norse concept of the self, and more. Ryan also helps you develop direct relationships with animistic powers, commune with the dead, and cultivate your skills in ecstatic trance journeywork. Spinning Wyrd is for practitioners who are looking for more than the basics, who want to develop skills in the deeper forms of mysticism associated with Heathenry.
