I just want to say thank you so much for being so prompt and accurate with my order. I was ordering a present for a friend for Yule and was worried I had waited a bit too long, but I just received my order today - only three business days after I placed the order! Plus, the hand-written sentiment on the invoice made me smile after a long day at work. ^__^ Thank you and Blessed Be.

Odin
Ecstasy, Runes, & Norse Magic
By Diana L. Paxson

Odin is arguably one of the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology. Revered since the Viking Age, Odin has been called the greatest of the gods—the god of words and wisdom, runes and magic, a transformer of consciousness, and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both war god and 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 historically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin’s origins, his appearances in sagas, old magic spells, and the Poetic Edda, and his influence on modern media, such as 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 complicated god.

Author Diana Paxson, an expert on Viking-era mythology, provides a complete portrait of Odin and draws on both scholarship and experience to provide context, resources, and guidance for those who are drawn to work with the Master of Ecstasy today.

Diana Paxson is a writer, priestess, and teacher who has been studying and teaching Germanic mythology and religion for nearly 30 years. Paxson also pioneered the recovery of traditional Norse oracular practice, described in The Way of the Oracle.

"Reading Diana Paxson’s most excellent book, Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic, whilst listening to WardRuna. This is perhaps the most comprehensive book ever written about Odin. Written with sound scholarship allied to intuitive perception. Capturing the best of both, and a sense of humour to boot. Each chapter is ended by a list of suggestions for working with him. Apart from the scholarship and poetic vision, it is also a most pleasant read! Recommended for everyone interested in Odin. Very, very helpful to students, but also rich in details and associations from other good books. which are listed in the bibliography! All in all, a very worthwhile work and as such equally useful to Old Timers like me." —Freya Aswynn, author of Northern Mysteries and Magick: Runes & Feminine Powers
