"It was more of a ritualistic experience.  I wanted to 'know' the runes.  I was working on the first 4 runes.  I visualized each one glowing in front of me. I cupped my hand about the rune and brought it to my forehead,…"

World Runic Healing Network

This group gathers at regular intervals to create a global network of world healing using the power of runes. At a chosen date and time each participant builds the runic energy in their own way, then feeds it into the network. At present, we are using the rune under discussion in the Free Rune Study Course. To create the healing network we use a macro - meso - and micro-cosmos framework as follows:1. connect with each other2. connect with the runic energy (Chant the name, galdr, visualise it,…See More

"Hi, Malcom. Tyriel's book is great!  A good small step to try is pulling a rune every morning.  At the end of the day look up the rune in your book and reflect on how the rune related to your experiences in the day.  You can…"

Profile Information

I am a 'hippy' from Seattle. Nope, I don't like Starbuck's coffee, but they have good tea. Yes, I wear Birkenstocks with SOCKS!!! I have recently begun to investigate the Norse systems after having been New Age and pagan since the late 80's. Nothing was quite right and now I am feeling like I am fitting very nicely with my ethnic heritage. Don't freak out, I am not racist and believe that all find that which they need and resonate with. Our value is on the inside!
When did you begin using the runes?
I began using runes sporadically in the early 90's.
What rune(s) are you most concerned with?
All of them, I want to learn all of them better!!!
Who are your favorite authors on the runes?
Thorson, Kaldera (sure to raise some eyebrows)Aswyn. These are just so far. I also have Paxson. I don't have favorites as I don't know enough to be able to make this statement. I do want to check out Rune Primer. My next purchase, SOON, it it be the Book of Rune Secrets! I am stoked about reading it.

Hello, All!  I am so delighted to have found this site.  I now live in a very conservative community in which Norse studies have been abused.  I am from Seattle and now live in Spokane, very close to the Idaho Panhandle of NeoNazi fame.  I found a Meetup group for Norse beliefs, but they are rather inactive and not very supportive of newbies.  Although I can imagine that they need to ensure their safety perhaps.  Anyway, I met a fellow Norse Newbie and we have begun our own Rune study group,…

 Hi Staci!

 Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I haven't been active on this site for some time.

 Nope, I'm not affiliated with any Asatru/Heathen organizations, and I don't really identify with the Universalist/Folkish dynamic that seems to be so important to a lot of the more popular groups. On a personal note,  my ancestral heritage has been a big part of my own path thus far. Not because I have any political leanings or anything, but just because that's the way things have turned out for me, I guess. : )

 Right now I'm living on the Olympic Peninsula in a tiny town called Sequim and I'm beginning to feel rather isolated. I am really hoping to find a community of like-hearted folks.

 My apologies again for not getting back to you. I really appreciate your response to my cry into the deep for local community!

 Light, Life, Love and Luck,

Lessons of Hagalaz: Rune of Disaster and Healing

In the face of disaster, compassionate human beings discover that they do not break, but become stronger. We discover that our communities come together, even on a global scale, in face of unimaginable destruction. When the universe shows its inimical side, the side that couldn't care less about average human affairs, it's as if we come together to show overwhelmingly that we care for one another. When the universe demonstrates that it cannot be depended upon, that it is more than able to wreck havoc, we react by showing that we can depend upon one another.

A Social Network Exclusively For Rune Study?

Have you been as frustrated as me in finding an online community exclusively for studying the runes? What is the solution?
