Putting the 'elder' back in futhark. The Reclaiming the Runes Preview of the full-year Intensive offers a peak into the history and initial staves of the first aett. It is your opportunity to begin creating your relationship to the runes. 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. The full Reclaiming the Runes Intensive 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. This preview course introduces you to forming your relationship to the runes, your way.
