modern interpretation of Pre-Christian Teutonic myth, you will find this video
to be very interesting. Mr Denney has integrated his considerable experience in
indo-european and asian mysticism up to the pre-Christian "Norse" myths and created a very powerful modern interpretation for Western based shamanism. In this video, I especially appreciate his interpretation of the nine worlds and how he applies them shamanically to the eight directions. We don't know how the myths were interpreted into shamanic work 2,000 years ago, but I feel confident that our
ancestors would appreciate Mr. Denney's application of them... In any case, I find
this video an excellent introduction to Mr. Denney's work...
