2502Re: [Asatru-U] What is Sidir?
- Feb 4, 2008Greetings, Joy.
If I may be so bold as to paraphrase a saying from another culture: "The Seiðr that may be spoken of is not the true Seiðr." :)
That being said, the short answer is that Seiðr is a form of folk magic. If I am not too mistaken, this craft can involve trancework.
For a longer -- and very well-written -- answer, I refer you to Yngona Desmond's book, Völuspá - Seiðr as Wyrd Consciousness (http://tinyurl.com/h75d6). Here are some related posts on her blog (I hope this link comes through): http://vinlands-volva.blogspot.com/search?q=Sei%C3%B0r
Other sites for reference:
I hope that helps. Other list members who are more knowledgeable can provide more details, I am sure.
