Please note that there has been a change of title for this foundational course, which was previously called 'The Magic of Seidr'. The course content remains the same as before.
Join Andreas for an immersive online experience to explore the rituals, runes, folklore, sagas and initiations of Norse mythology. This course is particularly designed for those with an interest in witchcraft, runes, alchemy, symbolism, Norse culture and Paganism.
Topics explored will be:
Seidr (Norse Shamanism): An inner journey through the sacred tree, Yggdrasil
Magical talismans of the ancient world - what can we learn from them, how can we read them?
An introduction to the thousand-year history of the runes
Storytelling and techniques: stalking the mead of poetry, northern myth cycles
The runic mysteries and the sacred numbers of Mithras
Different rune scripts and rune rows across the ages
Finding the Northern lost star constellations
Working and reading with the runic scripts, what is an oracular language? How do we access it?
Runes: how to send, how to pray, how to bless
Ceremonies: The Blot Ritual and how to live a ceremonial life and the role of the Oracle in the Viking Society
Much of the material presented in this course has never been translated into English.
Here's what some of Andreas' previous students had to say about his Foundation Seidr course:
"Andreas has a gift for storytelling, and for teasing deeper meanings out of things you thought you were already familiar with. His breadth and depth of this subject made for mesmerising evenings."
"There are teachers and there are practitioners. Andreas is both. Thanks to his competent and generous approach, this class was just what I was looking for, and more. Andreas gracefully and mysteriously wove a web of diverse threads into the magical tapestries of Norse cosmology, mythology and magic, revealing a new world of imagination for both spirit and soul. This was my first experience with Zoom in the context of a multi-week class like this, and I was surprised at how little this affected the quality of intimacy - as I experienced it - with the group. I feel fortunate to have found this class when I did and look forward to joining the intermediate course, gods willing, when the time comes."
"Andreas Kornevall offers a powerful immersive experience of travelling into Norse mythology and Runic divination, food for both soul and intellect. Understanding Runic script as mythic symbols opens a door into the archetypes that inform all human existence, and Andreas' deep knowledge and love for his subject is truly inspirational." - Professor Angela Voss, Christ Church University
