Raven's Northern-Tradition Shamanism Book Series


The Jotunbok: the Giants of the Northern Tradition
preview

The Gods of the Northern Tradition - the religion of the ancient Norse/Germanic/Anglo-Saxon peoples - have been rediscovered in growing numbers in the past years, as have the elves and dwarves that inhabit the Nine Worlds of the Cosmic Tree along with them. However, few have written about the Giants of those worlds and the Gods who number among them-–Loki, Hela, Fenris, the World Serpent, and others-–until now. The Jotunbok–-the first book in the Northern-Tradition Shamanism series-–is a collection of the wisdom, ways and tales of the Giants and their Gods, told by those who revere and work with them.
(Buy The Jotunbok at Lulu.com.)

Selections from The Jotunbok are available on the NorthernPaganism.org website at Tales of the Giants.

Giants' Tarot Cover
The Giants' Tarot

The Jotunfolk, or Giants, of northern myth are a widely varied race. Some are fiery, some watery, some earthy, some like the blizzards of winter. Some are Gods, some are simple trolls, and many are in between. Their stories weave through northern myth like the tracks of wild animals. This Tarot deck celebrates them, showing their faces all together for the first time.
(Buy The Giants' Tarot from Asphodel Press.)

All of the images featured in this tarot deck can be seen on the Giants' Tarot page at NorthernPaganism.org.



Nine Sea Songs and Other Tides

A CD featuring the songs of the Northern-Tradition Shamanism Series is now available through Asphodel Press. This is a homemade recording for folks who want to learn the songs, not a performance quality recording.

The CD includes the Song of the Nine Sacred Herbs, which can be heard at the Nine Sacred Herbs page. Samples of the songs of Aegir and Ran's daughters are available on the Nine Sisters' Shrine on NorthernPaganism.org, at the bottom of each "Meeting..." page.
