Course Bonus

Because I so passionately believe in the relevance of the runes for modern seekers, I’m including a bonus lesson at the conclusion of Reawakening with the Runes. This bonus gem teaches you how to fully invoke the spirit of the runes, and to form direct relationship with this timeless life force.

Connecting to the runes as an ally brings lifelong support, wisdom, and guidance. It also affirms you as a devout bearer of that ancient spirit to a modern time.


Self-paced, Community-based

Self-paced study doesn’t have to mean going it alone. Reawakening with the Runes begins on your own time, as you choose. Though it’s a self-directed study doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. The runes are a living tradition. They are spoken, social, and engaging, thus are intended to be shared in communal sacred space. I have created that space for you in a private online community, which you are free to join as you progress through the course.

In the group you will receive the support of others as they progress through the course, the wisdom of those who have completed it, the opportunity to ask questions in live sessions with me, and a safe place to practice rune readings and engage in conversation.

Full instructions on how to join this community are included in the course lessons.
