Hi, I’m Shirl Sazynski.


A priestess, icon painter and teacher of the pagan Norse art of seidhr trance journeying and fate-weaving magic, I share over fifteen years of experience through my column and blog for Witches & Pagans magazine (One-Eyed Cat), articles on safer trance journeying and teaching workshops around the US. By journeying through the Northern European mysteries and working closely with the Gods and spirits, I guide others to seek their own wisdom in a spirit of deep respect, love and awe for this exquisite world we share.

Seidhr (pronounced “sayth”) literally means “to spin”; as such I am a weaver of connections between people, the land, our ancestors and descendants – and the divinity strung through all of it.
