First Meeting of a Year Long Intensive on Rune Study.

A year long kids class in rune study will take place at the same time with different tasks based on age in separate area of the same location.  Please see that meetup for details.

Words have power. Many cultures across the world have a sacred alphabet, a system of shapes that function both as the basis of a written language and as foundation of spiritual wisdom. In the Northern European cultures these symbols are runes - sacred and used in writing, in divination, and in magic.


Students will delve into the ancient historical meaning as preserved in the rune poems as well as contemporary meanings. Coursework will include examples of practical, spiritual and magical applications of the runes, such as Valdr, Galdr, casting methods, bindrunes, as well as making your own rune set. We will explore the runes individually, grouped as pairs, and grouped as aetts, thus shedding light on the variety of connections the runes share with each other. Focus will begin with the Germanic Elder Futhark, with discussions on the Younger and Anglo-Saxon Futhark in later classes.

Past intensives have included work with Diana Paxson and other scholars.
Students who have no experience with Seidth or Shamanic work will be taught the basics to advance their divination and working skills with the runes.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
