A fascination with the history and life of the Vikings is growing. Movies and television series about their way of life have had a surge in popularity. This online course offers a view into the Viking world and an understanding of its fascinating origins.
The culture that arose from this mythology created a self-reliant people with a great need to explore and expand their reality.
My intention is to guide you towards a life of strength and empowered integrity. As you delve into the reality of the Nordic mythology, you may become inspired to live a life without shame and fear. This course contains practical exercises which you can use in your own life. You may also share these powerful ways of thinking and being with others who wish to find their own way and power. By the end of the course you will have practical, academic and scientific knowledge about the Vikings and Nordic mythology.
You will, like the Vikings, discover how you can trust, and cooperate with those who share the journey. One of the earliest examples of actual democracy comes from the Vikings of Norway. They had councils which determined the laws of the land. Every free adult, including women, had influence and power in these assemblies. We might say that one of the reasons the Vikings conquered so much of the world was that women were powerful and respect.
Nordic mythology is a complete cycle,beginning with the creation of the universe and ending with Ragnarök, where all the powers of the universe clash in a great battle. In the end, the same powers of fire and heat that created the earth also destroy it. However, you will find that there is always a new hope rising.
In this world of mythology there is no clear definition of good and evil. The greatest of the gods can do bad things, yet the vilest of them can save the day and create unimaginable gifts for the future.
You will also become acquainted with the idea that the whole of existence can be perceived as a great tree, called Yggdrasil.
As you journey through this course, you may be astonished by the depth of insight and wisdom that pervade every story and myth. Your ability to understand humanity, and yourself, will be enhanced and enriched. You can:
● Become wiser
● Learn to empower yourself
● Receive an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the culture that created this mythology
You may be captivated to learn how much these myths have, at their roots, a common human understanding of the universe. Perhaps you will find it refreshing to encounter a mythology that does not condemn, nor speak of sin or even right and wrong.
In many respects, you will meet a worldview that shares many similarities with science. It is a worldview that also struggles with the conflict between the powers of chaos and the powers of order. However, it speaks in the language of stories and images and through the lives of powerful yet fallible beings who resemble humans. You will even encounter a graphic description of the relationship between the powers of chaos, the powers of order and the human way of life.
If you are a scientist, you may be intrigued by the depth of these myths and the practical wisdom contained within them. If you are spiritually open-minded, you may just enjoy them and smile with this addition to your search, your quest for diving deeper into the mysteries of life. And if you follow a specific religion, Nordic mythology may inspire a deepening and renewal of that which you already hold as your belief.
As you embark on this journey, imagine yourself following in the footsteps of Odin. By hanging himself from the tree of life, he falls and finds the runes of wisdom and insight. Odin is willing to let go of a reality he already understands, in order to be allowed to drink from the well that contains all the wisdom of the world.
So, I welcome you to do as Odin … let go and drink deep from the well of wisdom.
