"The best teachers are those who enlighten and empower their students to connect with their natural abilities and gifts to do "the work." Johannes is certainly one of these teachers and more. He shares his extensive knowledge of Scandinavian folk magic in a way that is approachable and applicable in today's world. Taking his class has made a big difference in my practice and healing work. I am most grateful for his teachings. "
""I have been working closely with Johannes Gårdbäck for nearly one and a half years. I approached him with the specific intention of wanting more training to build up my confidence and knowledge to do practitioner work. Coming from a background in traditional witchcraft, folk magic, plant lore and trance work, I felt that even with all of the tools that I had already acquired, there was something missing. I am so glad that I followed my intuition and had the opportunity to work with Johannes. My training with him has far exceeded my expectations. Johannes is a gifted teacher and practitioner with so much experience that his approach is practical, no nonsense and efficient. He is extremely generous with his knowledge, for those that are committed to doing the work. He challenged me and tested me in ways that I would have never sought on my own and at times, pushed me gently out of my comfort zone in order to polish my skills and put them to use. He is helpful and thorough with his guidance, and ultimately very encouraging. While he has high standards, his expectations are realistic and he has been very understanding when life gets busy. At the same time, I feel blessed to have a teacher with such skill and discernment. Johannes is also a walking encyclopedia of folk lore and magical applications, it is a joy to be exposed to this. He is always willing to answer my many questions, and has been very patient with the learning process. I feel honored to work with him and feel much more well rounded in my ability to do practitioner work for others, including spirit work, spell work and all manners of practical magic. He has expanded my horizons considerably as he is one of the few people that I have met that thinks like an old school magical practitioner- he focuses on the magic and the work being done, rather than the image or the aesthetic. Also, nothing shocks him which is great. He has pretty much seen it all. If you are called to working closely with spirits, helping others in the invisible realm, doing the practical and getting your hands dirty type of folk magic, if you enjoy being challenged and problem solving, and if you have high ethics in regards to your magical work, Johannes is a wonderful guide, mentor, teacher and resource.""
