Course Description

Some say the Runes are a mystic source of power and protection bestrode from the Ancient Gods. Others have sought and believably found spiritual harmony and co-existence with the natural [earth]. For many, asking for daily guidance by casting of the runes onto an outstretched cloth is a sacred act. To have ones destiny lay out before them, as prescribed by the gods is divine indeed. 

To understand how to cast and draw upon the mystical power, one must seek to explore its natural origins. Thought by most, the roots lie deeply with in ancient Norse [Viking] mythology and history. During a period known as The Dark Ages [600-800 BC], in the region of Scandinavia lived a society of people that had no need of a written language. They expressed ideas using a system of mantra sounds that corresponded to each of 24 symbols [Elder Futhorkh Runes] that formed complete thought based on their arrangement to each other.

As the Vikings traveled and explored the neighboring regions, they encountered new and different tribes. Each, as they adopted the Futhorkh Runes into their own culture attached the symbols to their own alphabets and added new symbols for the alphabet that had none. The original runes along with the new symbols were widely adopted into their religious rites.

Fearing that the true purpose of the runes would be discovered some of the original runes were altered, hidden or replaced with new symbols, by the ruling Rune Masters to confuse the reading and quench the power drawn from them from.

In this study, you will learn how to recreate and activate the Original Elder Futhorkh Runes. Come to better understand their true purpose and meaning and how to cast and read the Runes. You will also learn how to set up 'The Sacred Alter' and conduct private and group 'Rune Ceremonies'.
