Viking Saga Series Part 5 – Bifrost and Midgard with Liz Cormell

Join us Saturday May 18th @ 11:30am PST / 2:30pm EST for Viking Saga Series Part 5 – Bifrost and Midgard with Liz Cormell
With the popularity of TV series like “The Vikings” interest in the history of the Vikings has never been stronger. But how do we know how these people lived and what they believed? Along with a huge amount of archaeological evidence we also have over 100 Viking age sagas, although most weren’t written down until the 12th or 13th century. The most famous were recorded in the Poetic and Prose Edda, written by Snorri Sturluson. They are all a mixture of fact and fiction and have gone on to influence the work of authors such as JRR Tolkien and JK Rowling.
In this series of lessons Liz will take you through the world of the Vikings, according to these sagas. Who were the Vikings and what did they believe in? What were the 9 worlds of the Vikings and how did the gods and goddesses affect these worlds? Liz will answer these questions, and more, and show examples of how the archaeological record backs up these sagas.
The Norse Pagans believed that the Aesir could choose to visit them in their realm, known as Midgard. Anyone familiar with Tolkien will know that his inspiration for Middle Earth was Midgard, “middle land”. To enable the Aesir to get to Midgard from Asgard the huge bridge Bifrost was built and jealously guarded from unauthorised beings. It is interesting to try and interpret the descriptions of Bifrost from the sagas, and wonder if the Norse Pagans believed they could see the bridge. How can we use these interpretations to help encourage the Aesir to give our rituals power, and ask them to visit us in Midgard today?

    Liz Cormell

    Liz has known since a very young age that she can communicate with something that not everyone can. She comes from a long line of sensitives and psychics; this gift has been passed down the female line for many generations. Prior to developing this gift Liz admits that it used to frighten her but now she acknowledges most spirits are just people without physical bodies.
    When Liz was 17 she dated a guy who's mother was a Romany gypsy. This lady taught Liz to read tarot, using standard playing cards. This is a skill Liz practices, using multiple packs, and she provides readings for many people on a regular basis.
    From 2005 Liz has worked with many paranormal investigation groups and undertaken close to 1000 investigations at locations all around the UK, Ireland and even the USA. She would love to investigate many overseas locations including Poveglia Island, Venice.
    Liz has also been a practicing witch since her 30's and works mainly with elemental energy and the moon goddess. Recently, she has felt called by Morrigan and is doing more spell work using Morrigan as her guiding goddess.
    Despite this spiritual angle to her life, Liz is a trained Crime Scene Investigator and Forensic Archaeologist so likes to search for rational and logical explanations before calling something paranormal.
