This will be a day of storytelling, mythological insight and commentary, music, singing, runes and ceremony.
Andreas Kornevall will bestow rare information covering topics as diverse as the Northern and Anglo-Saxon lost star constellations to the sacred numbers of Mithras and how they influenced runic magical practice and talismanic writing in the ancient world.
Participants will be encouraged to discover for themselves what the runes signify through their life experiences using an age-old practice.
Andreas will bring the major myths from the Northern tradition, where you will hear about the Norse pantheon of Gods and Goddesses. Each story, with its rich symbolic imagery, will act as a guide to the runic investigation throughout the day. It’s not obligatory, but please if you can, bring either a song, a poem, a piece of writing or a small offering, and something that represents your ancestors, for the closing ceremony.
A general outline of the day will be:
If you are interested in witchcraft, runes, alchemy, symbolism, Norse culture and paganism then you may well be tempted by this workshop.
