Runes Classes

Reclaiming the Runes is a one-year Intensive designed for beginners and seasoned rune enthusiasts who wish to deepen their relationship to the Elder Futhark. This Intensive offers a primer on the runes as an alphabet, and as a system of storytelling, timekeeping, and divination. Often the runes are erroneously compared to the tarot. Next to the lush art and vivid imagery of today’s decks, the runes come up short. Modern concepts on the staves have distilled them to one-word meanings, omitting their rich cultural backdrop and archetypal narrative. Reclaiming the Runes teaches their story in as full a context as possible, and instructs on how to work with them as a personal tool for growth, and a facilitator of gaining insight for others.

Reawakening with the Runes Mini Course is a five-week self-paced study to create direct personal relationship to the runes through understanding their cultural context, learning their meanings, acquiring a rune set, and using them as a practical oracle for daily life.
