Overview

The English considered it bad luck to kill a Finn ... the Danes believed that the Finns could control the wind ... even in America the Finns were targeted as witches. Since ancient times, the Finns have been noted for their magical traditions. They were the last group in Europe to be Christianized, and they have carried the traditions of ancient shamans into modern times.

These mysterious people, with their close neighbors the Sammi (often called Lapps), are almost unknown to most Americans. They speak an exotic language more closely related to Mongolian and Korean than to Swedish or German. Few books are available in English concerning the Finns and their culture. This is the first to explore their magical traditions.

In Finnish Magic you will learn of their gods, spirits and of the rituals that the ancient mages used to gain power and knowledge. It is for anyone who seeks a path that includes song, intuition, visions, and reverence for nature.

    Lacking in content & in credibility

    As hopeful as I was for this book ,I found it lacking both in content & in credibility. Far too many pages are devoted to trying to prove that Nordic (or Asatru) & Finnish are closely related due to archetype-overlap (Ukko & Odin), and far too few are devoted to the qualities of Finnish magic which would make its practice unique. The suggested trancing methods in the book, while viable, are associated with Finnish belief by weak inference rather than by historical precedence. The suggestions on how to pronounce Finnish words are grossly inaccurate & inadequate.
