More about the history of Runes
Seiðr is the Old Norse art of spirit-magic. In historical context, it was capable of altering wars and warriors, exposing secrets, bringing prosperity, and helping to shape the future. Heiðsær use historical details to root their version of this practice.
Heiðsær is a group of touring witches bringing insights about your past, present, and future to your door. A revival of the Old Norse vǫlur traveling seeress community, Heiðsær uses the traditional arts of spá and seiðr to help, to entertain, and to empower. Heiðsær aims to bring prophecy, history, and an engaging experience like no other to all those with curious minds. A public seiðr ritual includes: a brief introduction to explain what you’re witnessing; a session with song, trance, and spirit-channeling; and an opportunity for you to ask questions of that spirit. Heiðsær is led by Lux Heljardóttir, a professional vǫlva with over 20 years of experience, and her 3 trained vǫlur: Melissa Óðsdóttir, Jade Njǫrunardóttir, and Lis Friggjardóttir. Their visit to the region is sponsored by: In Situ Polyculture Commons.
