eBook. Seidr: The Gate is Open, Katie Gerrard


Seidr: The Gate is Open by Katie Gerrard has already received numerous outstanding and positive reviews from readers from all over the world.  
“For those who do not know, seidr is a rather controversial pre-Christian Norse form of magic involving trance, prophecy, spirit contact, cursing and shape-shifting.  It centres around the so-called Rite of the High Seat based on a single mention in a medieval saga of a volva or preistess-seer sitting on a high seat or raised platform and prophesising.  The volva has been seen by some writers on the Northern European magical tradition, with one feels justficiation, as a prototype later post-Christian witches.  Based on the known historical sources and her own practical experience over a ten year period, Katie Gerrard offers her readers modern techniques for achieving a state of trance and contacting the Norse gods, spirits and the ancestral dead.”
Katie Gerrard is a writer, researcher, and workshop facilitator with a passion for the magic of Seidr and the Runes. She has been studying the different forms of norse magic and working with norse gods since discovering them in the 1990s.

Katie is also the author of Odin's Gateways (about working with the runes) and the forthcoming The Gate is Open (about Seidr and Northern tradition magical techniques), both publised by Avalonia Books. An essay on the High Sear Rite written by Katie Gerrard appeared in the Avalonia anthology 'Priestesses, Pythonesses, Sibyls'. She also regularly hosts seidr and other seer and norse rites within the London (UK) area.
