Description

In The Northern Path, Dag Rossman recounts Norse myths and the worldview underlying them, and also what he has learned from following The Northern Path himself for the past quarter-century. Learn how the worldview of your northern European ancestors can enrich your own life today.

Why is Douglas "Dag" Rossman uniquely qualified to tell these Nordic tales as few have done since the storytellers of the Viking Age spun their yarns for kings and commoners? Who could better understand the tales’ power and import in the lives of our ancestors than someone who tells them as the ancient storytellers did?

For the past quarter century, Dag Rossman has followed The Northern Path with:

The reflective mind of a scholar:
Rossman has a Ph.D. in zoology, and has studied and taught Norse mythology for twenty-five years. His collection of original stories, Theft of the Sun, and Other New Norse Myths (Skandisk, 2001), fills in gaps and ties up loose ends left by the fragments of Norse manuscripts that we’ve inherited. With his wife, Sharon, he co-designed and installed the largest museum exhibit on Norse mythology ever displayed in the United States (Echoes of Odin: Norse Mythology in Scandinavia and America, Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, Decorah, IA, Sept. 2000 through Jan. 2001).

The wandering feet of an explorer:
Rossman has amplified his understanding of the ancient Norse world by six trips to Scandinavia, visiting ancient monuments and absorbing the spirit of the land and its people.

The heart and skills of a bard:
For twenty-five years, Rossman has told these tales to contemporary audiences young and old. By candlelight, moonlight, firelight, and torchlight, he’s watched these myths cast their spell over his listeners.

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
