Odin ~ Ecstasy, Runes & Norse Magic
"Seeking The God With many Names
Among the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology, Odin has been called the greatest of the gods. He is the god of words ans wisdom, runes and magic; a transformer of consciousness; and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both a war god and a poetry god, and he is the Lord of Ravens, the All-Father, and the rune master.
Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic is the first book on Odin that is both holistically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin's origins; his appearances in sagas, the Poetic Edda, and old magic spells and new entertainments, such as Neigh Gaiman's American Gods; as well as his influence on modern media, such as J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of The Rings trilogy. Each chapter features suggestions for rituals, exercises, and music, so readers can comprehend and become closer to this profound and complicated deity."
