Aki Cederberg is a writer, musician and filmmaker from Helsinki, Finland. Coming from a hereditary line of seamen, priests and doctors, his disposition and many of his interests and passions can perhaps be derived from these ancestral streaks. Relating to his engagement with various esoteric traditions and realms of knowledge and culture of which he has sought first-hand experience, as well as his interest in sites of mythological or historical significance both ancient and modern, he has travelled extensively. Cederberg has written a book published in finnish language titled Pyhiinvaellus ("Pilgrimage", Salakirjat 2013), as well as contributed to The Fenris Wolf book anthologies and several other publications. He has been part of several musical groups, with whom he has released albums and films, as well as conducted exhibitions and tours both in his homeland and abroad. The film Taiwaskivi, made as part of Halo Manash, was released on the DVD-collection ”Back to Human Nature!” (Njuta Films). Cederberg is also a part of the Radio Wyrd  podcast. He has a Bachelor of Culture and Arts (directing and scriptwriting) and currently works in writing and film production. He lives in Helsinki, and enjoys boxing.

This website functions as a resource on his writings, travels and current works.

 

ULTRACULTURE with Jason Louv

I was recently on Jason Louv's Ultraculture podcast and the episode is now up and can be listened to and downloaded here: https://ultraculture.org/blog/2018/06/08/aki-cederberg/
or by clicking the image below:

Almost a decade ago, Louv published a book titled the ULTRACULTURE JOURNAL, the contents of which had some overlap to the experiences I had in India, and themes partially similar to those of my book JOURNEYS IN THE KALI YUGA. For instance, in his book there is a long article dealing with Mahendranath, and a story told in the book is similar to one I heard first-hand in India, which I retell in my own book (quoted below):

"One of the great Naths was a Westerner, Shri Gurudev Mahendranath (1911–1991), who originally got the advice to delve into the Indian esoteric tradition from Aleister Crowley himself. Rampuri once told me a story of his meeting with Mahendranath, or Dadaji as he was called by the locals. They had sat at his dhuni, and Dadaji had offered to give Rampuri his maha mantra, his great mantra, and Rampuri had of course accepted. Dadaji had come closer and solemnly whispered the mantra in Rampuri’s ear: “Fuck ’em all.”

The podcast opens with a new ALLERSEELEN track, Der Nordische Ring des Wissenden, with vocals by me, from the upcoming album Chairete Daimones (to be available via Aorta mailorder).

I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.
