Links

We recommend the following websites:

Runes


Rune Net - International Rune Study Guild

Tarot & Runes - website for a good friend of ours and the most amazing rune reader you're ever likely to encounter.


Rune Secrets - a very detailed site that looks at runes mostly through the lens of personal experience and experimentation.

Seidh

Bil Linzie - One of the greatest authors ever on seidh and all other areas of Germanic heathen spirituality around! We don't agree with everything he has to say, but we do STRONGLY, STRONGLY, STRONGLY RECOMMEND HIS WORK.

http://www.cauldronfarm.com/nts.html - Very Ergi, but I like it, and isn't that what Seid is supposed to be?

Jordsvin's Seidhr pages - a great resource from a learned seidhmadr.

Hrafnar Seidhr - Diana Paxson's pioneering Seidhr group, who specialise in reconstruction of the oracular seidhr  documented in the Saga of Eirik the Red. Different again to what Bil Linzie, Jan Fries or we here at Elhaz Ablaze are doing, but very awesome.

Seidhr Study E-List - Highly recommended if you are interested in this stuff.

Seidh.Org - Website of Diana Paxson (Hrafnar).

Firefly Pages - a site with information on entheogens and Northern Tradition-flavoured shamanism.

Magic

Phil Hine - One of the modern originators of chaos magic

Jan Fries - We think everyone should read Jan's work, particularly his books Seidways and Helrunar! They are, in our opinion, utterly essential.

Chaos Matrix - Fenwick Rysen's chaos magic clearinghouse.


Spiral Nature - An occult resource exploring philosophy, spirituality and magick.

Boxing, Wrestling and Berzerkergang

Ironwood Kindred - An intriguing US heathen group that we've encountered. Their leader Elizabeth Vongvisith has written a brilliant book called Trickster My Beloved: Poems for Laufey's Son about Loki.
