Imelda Almqvist is an international teacher of Sacred Art and Seidr/Old Norse Traditions (the ancestral wisdom teachings of Northern Europe). She has published three books: Natural Born Shamans: A Spiritual Toolkit for Life (Using shamanism creatively with young people of all ages) in 2016, Sacred Art: A Hollow Bone for Spirit (Where Art Meets Shamanism) in 2019 and Medicine of the Imagination - Dwelling in possibility (an impassioned plea for fearless imagination) in 2020. She has presented her work on both The Shift Network and Sounds True. She appears in a TV program, titled Ice Age Shaman, made for the Smithsonian Museum, in the series Mystic Britain, talking about Neolithic arctic deer shamanism. She is currently finishing up her fourth book, about the pre-Christian spirituality of The Netherlands and Low Countries. She has already started her fifth book: about the runes of the Futhark/Uthark. Her response to the 2020 pandemic was starting an on-line school on Teachable called Pregnant Hag Teachings, to make more of her classes available on-line.

The Norns in their whirling well of water stepping forward with their knowledge

My mind was blown with Imelda’s story of the runes- it just hit me in heart deep within me it made so much sense like a coming home. I was truly wowed by it

My favourite moment? Too many to mention

Working alone, in pairs, in ceremony a deeply immersive experience diving deep into this well of knowledge

Don’t hesitate jump into that well!

"Imelda is a strong and articulate teacher, generous with her knowledge and facilitates these ancient practices in a safe and supportive environment. Her willingness to come to the US to share this wisdom is a gift, and I eagerly anticipate her future teachings.”
