7 September and following 3 Mondays, 7pm- 9pm
Focusing on the Elder Futhark this course seeks to introduce you to the history and use of Rune stones and show you how to learn and work with runic energies for spellcraft and divinatory purposes.
Session One introduces you to the Runes and their history. We will discuss the known uses of the Elder Futhark in Scandinavian and Germanic literature, discussing suggested uses. W e will also look at the popularisation of runes in recent history and their uses for divination and galdra today.
Session Two:work with the energies of the Runes, intoning and chanting, how each rune makes us feel and what clues this can give us to their meaning and usage. Focusing on several specific runes we will look at the symbolism and mythology associated with them and look at what steps we can take to get to know that rune better. We will also look at many of the runes that can be used within galdra and spellcraft and how we can use them.
Session Three: This week we will be making our own set of runes using materials gathered by you or provided on the day. We will discuss what decisions to make when selecting materials as well as how to charge your set with your own energy and with the energy of the rune.
Session Four: In the final session we will look at using your set of runes for divinat ion. We will also explore how runes can be used as talismans or as sigils within spellcraft. This session will also give us time to discuss the things we have learnt and experienced throughout the course.
