FURTHER READING ABOUT SHAMANISM ~

Annette Høst’s book JORDEN SYNGER (2005; 2nd edition 2014) explores the roots of shamanism in Nordic spiritual traditions, myth and nature. It is in Danish, and can be read by both Norwegians and Swedes.

Other recommended books: We have compiled a list of books on shamanism by other authors which we feel are useful and informative. You will find it in the Tools section.
