The Runes are an ancient Nordic alphabet of 24 letters, or sigils that are used as a form of oracle. Runes have a long, mystical, magical and sacred history, and date back to the early Germanic and Nordic tribes, and the word 'rune' translates to mean mystery, and secrets.
Rune lore reveals that the Norse god of wisdom, poetry and magic, Odin, who was a passionate seeker of wisdom and knowledge, deeply desired to know the meaning of the sacred sigils - which are written or carved symbols thought to have mystical and magical power, so much so that he hung himself upside down over a sacred lake, traveling between the realms in a deeply meditative state until each one of the runes revealed its meaning, secret and mystery to him. Odin then shared this knowledge with the tribal people of the Northern lands who revered him. It is also said that the Great Goddess Herself helped Odin to know the runes, and so it is Her essence that is infused into each of the sacred sigils, and Her it is Her essence that we will seek to know more deeply, as we study and work with the runes each month.
Still popular today, runes can be used for guidance, insight, wisdom, magic and as powerful charms, talismans, and amulets. Each rune has a specific aspect, nature and essence that is also associated with many correspondences, such as colors, tree, herb, the hour of the day and the months of the year, and by aligning with these correspondences, you can move through your life with greater ease, harmony and flow.
You will receive two potent lessons each month for the two runes associated with that month, along with the Seiðr and Galder practices for divination, magic and guidance. Seidr is the feminine, intuitive, meditative and shamanic practice of journeying with the runes for guidance and insight, while Galder is the more masculine magic of working with runic ritual, spells, incantations, ceremony and ritual. Together, they form a complete system that will help you to flow through the year - and your life with more grace, magic and harmony.
You can enroll anytime; you'll have access to the most current and past lessons upon enrollment, which you can use again and again, year after year. This is truly a keepsake course that takes you on a seasonal, magical, and meditative journey with the runes to flow with the rhythms of the year - and your own soul.
