This Two Spiral training in the Art of the Völva, the Norse Shamanka and Priestess of Freya includes Norse mythology, the practice of Seidr and the making of magical equipment.
The Way of the Völva is to remember and learn how to serve Mother Earth and Goddess Freya. You will be learning the skills of the Old Wise Women, building relations to all of life and journeying into the Otherworlds.
Seidr is an ecstasy technique, which enables the soul to travel to other worlds to seek information. The practice of Seidr is related to shamanism and can be used for many purposes including divination, protection and healing. To practice Seidr you will need a special Staff and Song.
The magic of the Seidr is held and was taught by the Vanir Goddess Freya. Among humans in earlier times Seidr was performed by women called Völvur/Valor, which means carrier of a magic staff. The Völvur were highly respected in the society as seeresses.
