In this livestream workshop, we will investigate and locate the threshold to the other-world. We will discover the ancient Northern practices to open magical portals. 

Traditionally, other-worlds and portals were accessed through the landscape in henge circles, stone circles, lonely rivers, sacred groves, remote hills, deep forests, and even empty alleyways and overgrown gardens.

When the runes and riddles were known and found, and the myths and stories remembered, we gained a glimpse of what poet W.B. Yeats called "the trembling of the veil".

In this new livestream workshop with Independent scholar of Norse myth Andreas Kornevall, we will use runes, myths, and the deep imagination to study the other-worlds that emanate and originate from within the Northern Anima Universalis: the Tree of Life, Yggdrasil

This mythic tree encompasses nine sacred worlds, all brimming with the supernatural such as elves, gods and goddesses, trolls, giants, serpents, dragons, squirrels and eagles, nature spirits and much more.

We will explore the worlds of the Tree of Life through stories and guided visual meditations, accompanied with lyre, flute, drum and "galder" singing (similar to mantras).

Please remember to bring along: an open mind, a magical notebook, and your own rune set if you have one (but it's not obligatory).

Please note, this workshop will include gentle journeying and drumming, so if you can have a place where you are able to lie down and be private, that will help.


This workshop will be recorded. A link to the video recording will be available for replay to those who book. Please see our terms for more information.
