this course our focus is Song as a central tool and source of power in
shamanic practice and ceremonial work. We will explore Song's ability to open the doors
between the worlds, to call power and joy, to express, to heal, and release. We will use songs handed down through centuries as well as new ones that arrive in the moment.
Magic chanting has been central to and highly developed in early Nordic tradition, in seidr, galdr, joik, spells and runesongs; both words and melody carrying power. We will turn to the old ways of singing as inspiration, and to sense the deep kinship between our own newborn, spirit-given songs and the ritual use of voice in other times and cultures. On the course we will also be introduced to the practice of seidr.
Shamanic singing does not obey the ordinary rules of acceptable singing of our culture. Song is a wild, natural force like wind, sunshine and thunder and singing in a shamanic way often leads to an enchanted state of consciousness, where the song sings us. Therefore, it is not at all necessary to be able to "sing" in the ordinary sense.
