Reviews

"Norse Goddess Magic is a powerful, evocative, and above all practical book by a highly qualified author. Alice Karlsdottir was involved in the Germanic religious revival in America from its earliest days, and her insights will be valuable for anyone desiring to experience the goddesses of the ancient and eternal North." * Stephen McNallen, founder of the Asatru Folk Assembly *
"In this important and original work Alice Karlsdottir, a leading expert on Norse religion, makes new and dramatic teachings available and applies these methods in a practical way in order that the ancient Norse goddesses can speak directly to those who seek their ageless wisdom. This book is something that can guide practitioners in all traditions in a process of esoteric discovery of what lies hidden in often obscure and scant mythological references. She concentrates on the often neglected goddesses of the Norse pantheon, especially the goddess Frigg. The teachings pioneered by this author show the way to move from the known to the unknown and shine a light that illuminates the darkness." * Stephen Flowers, Ph.D., author of Icelandic Magic and Lords of the Left-Hand Path *
"Karlsdottir's accessible, practical, and engaging guide to the goddesses of the Norse tradition covers not only the mother goddess Frigg but many of the lesser-known deities as well. By studying myth, reading ancient texts, and engaging in trancework you can experience these ancient archetypes yourself and strengthen your connection with them. Karlsdottir explains the necessary steps to enter the trance state and embark upon an enjoyable journey and safe return. She introduces thirteen Norse goddesses, among them healers, protectors, counselors, and messengers. Norse Goddess Magic: Trancework, Mythology, and Ritual is a wonderful addition to any library and will enrich your knowledge of mythology, magic, and the Divine Feminine." * Skye Alexander, author of The Modern Guide to Witchcraft and Sex Magic for Beginners *
"Alice Karlsdottir brings the thirteen Norse goddesses of the Aesir alive within us through her research but especially through her teachings of trance. She shows us how to experience each goddess personally and the values each has to teach. The values taught by each goddess take the meaning of compassion, nurturance, and protection to a much deeper level of our soul, the soul of the family, the community, and of our Great Earth Mother." * Nicholas E. Brink, Ph.D., author of Baldr's Magic: The Power of Norse Shamanism and Ecstatic T *
There is a lot to glean from Norse Goddess Magic. Whether you are new to Heathenry, an experienced practitioner, or even from a different branch of Reconstructionist spirituality, it is a worthy addition to your collection. * Spiral Nature *
