Rune magic is an integral part of a Nordic shamanic way of knowledge that was long forgotten but has come back with great strength towards the end of the 20th century. The runes are now flowing into our own time in a dynamic and creative way. This course is held in the wilderness area of Tiveden.
The runes possess a great inherent power. They represent knowledge from Mother Earth and do express the totality of all knowledge that is dispersed everywhere. The runes are archetypes originating from the beginning of creation and they are doorways into Dreamtime, the non-ordinary reality. They can be utilized to bring healing, harmony and balance to humans, animals, plants, minerals and Mother Earth.
In this course the participants will work with the runes in combination with other shamanic methods such as soul journeying, vision quests and walkabouts, ceremonies at sacred sites and the Nordic variant of the sweat lodge. The course also deals with the many connections between rune magic and quantum physics, alchemy and the concepts of archetypes and synchronicities. The aim is to give the participants a personal understanding of how the runes can be used as tools in order to think and act in beauty and contribute to harmony and balance in the world. The runes will help participants to find their own unique ways to knowledge and power.
Venue: The Hos Martha & Anders conference centre in Perstorp, Tiveden. You will find it on this map.
