About The Event
Practitioners Katie Gerrard and Andre Henriques offer an introductory course on Seidr, the Scandinavian shamanistic practices which inspire so many today. Through exploration of the historical sources and contemporary practises, participants will be guided and supported to be able to start practising Seidr themselves.
The Volvas were Norse 'shamans' who prophesied from the threads of fate, "seeing" for their communities. This course aims to awaken the Seer within, to serve our friends and communities in this role. The course will cover the High Seat rite, the web of Wyrd, Seers in antiquity, working with deities and ancestors, and the Nine Worlds of Norse cosmology.
No previous experience is required, but this program includes practical trance work, so some experience in paganism, shamanism, meditation, mediumship, or other kinds of trance work may be beneficial.
Katie discovered seidr in the late 1990s through her connection to the Norse deities. She is the author of Seidr: The Gate is Open, about her journey which has included leading rites and workshops (including some for Treadwell’s).
Andre has led ceremonies, lectures and workshops on the Northern Traditions of Europe for many years. He has participated in many different seidr ceremonies, and has also pursued academic research for his MA dissertation on practices and personal cosmologies of contemporary Norse-inspired Pagans.
