  GALDRBOK: PRACTICAL HEATHEN RUNECRAFT, SHAMANISM AND MAGIC 
Nathan J Johnson & Robert J Wallis

LIMITED TEN-YEAR ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION PUBLISHED WINTER SOLSTICE 2015    
81 copies only

“Galdrbok offers a complete system for accessing the nine otherworlds of the Northwest European shamanic world tree Yggdrasil. The initiatory system in Galdrbok is inspired by the spiritual legacy of Heathen Northwest European communities of the migration age. Galdrbok maps the altered conscious states which enable shamanic travel – by means of scrying (‘to descry’/‘foresee’/ crystal gaze), galdr (‘sung spells’), runic mediation and other powerful techniques, you can enter ecstasy and 'walk between the worlds' in the footsteps of Woden and Freyja, the Northern shamanic deities par excellence” 

The LIMITED TENTH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION, is freshly typeset, revised and expanded, with a new foreword and afterword, new poetry, an appendix on the plant-ally Mugwort and the Old English ‘Nine Herbs Charm’, an expanded bibliography taking account of literature in the field over the last decade, and many new illustrations.
