    Odin is arguably one of the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology. Revered since the Viking Age, he has been called the greatest of the gods—the god of words and wisdom, runes and magic, a transformer of consciousness, and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both war god and poetry god, and he is the Lord of Ravens, the All- Father, and the rune master.

    “A god for the ages, Odin’s veneration remains vital and active. Paxson provides songs, rituals, magical exercises, and practical advice to help you develop your own personal relationship with the Lord of Runes. Highly recommended.” —Judika Illes, author of Encyclopedia of Spirits, Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells, and other books

    Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic is the first book on Odin that is both historically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin’s origins, his appearances in sagas, old magic spells, and the Poetic Edda, and his influence on modern media, such as Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Each chapter features suggestions for rituals, exercises, and music, so readers can comprehend and become closer to this complicated god.

    Author Diana Paxson, an expert on Viking-era mythology, provides a complete portrait of Odin and draws on both scholarship and experience to provide context, resources, and guidance for those who are drawn to work with the Master of Ecstasy today.

    Diana Lucile Paxson is an American author, primarily in the fields of Paganism and Heathenism. Her works include fantasy and historical fiction novels, as well as many short stories. More recently she has also published books about Pagan and Heathen religions and practices.
