Jan Fries is a Germanoccultist and "freestyle" shaman. He is a musician, artist, magician and author of several books.
Fries is credited with coining the term "freestyle shamanism" in reference to a style of magic that emphasizes trance and closeness to nature, but instead of roots in a shamanic tradition, draws from individual experience in a way akin to chaos magic.
