I tried a simple journey within the Seidre technique and it was so damn powerful. I'm not exactly sure why. Being part Anglo I thought maybe it was some genetic memory thing. I set a stage, cleaned house, visualized protective runes around me and myself on a forest path. Simple enough, right? I went into a deep trance and travelled down this path and saw the tree of life and there was met by a man - with no eyes - who showed me the answers I was looking for in the palm of his hand. Please note - what little information I could find about the craft of Seidre said one should not attempt it alone.. but I did. I set out to discover who had betrayed me(that's another story no longer of importance). I was awakened by my cell phone ringing at 2am. I came back.. checked my voice mail and it was MY OWN VOICE replaying a message I had left on someone's elses phone a few days earlier saying, "hello (Betrayers Name Here) how are you, etc...".

So my question is - does anyone know anything more about this fabulous fine art because I have exhausted my recources and I am a believer.

I haven't purchased it yet myself, but James Chisolm and Stephen E. Flowers' A Source-Book of Seið seems to be quite extensive, if you are looking for an authentic/traditionalist point of view.


If not, keep exploring it yourself - what you find will be your own. ;)

Hello Reise - Thank you very much. I will definitely check it out. I'm especially curious to read what two men have to say about a journey craft that I understood to be practiced only by Nordic women.

The Flowers and Chisholm book is a concordance of origiunal material on Seidr, including the original Norse texts and translations. It provides little analysis or commentary and is designed to act as a resource for those who either lack access to the primary sources in other contexts or who wouldlike the original texts.

I'll keep that in mind.


In that case, this book would be of little use to someone seeking a formal teaching or instruction upon Seið tradition.


For one who is forging their own path or interpretation unguided, however â?? a treacherous sea for many â?? this book would be of subtle value; A source of inspiration.


To the OP I recommend conducting your own research into both of the above-mentioned sources, and always try to discriminate the solid wisdom from the watered-down fluff. ;)

That's okay - My attraction to Seidr is not academic - it's intuitive. The original Norse text without analysis may be preferred as long as the translation is quality. I'm not expecting specific technique. If there is a foggy metaphor or if anything is lost in translation I have some resources and could contact Dr Flowers directly. I located him in Texas running at the Woodharrow Institute.
