Runes: Experience and Gnosis of a Modern Rune Walker (Paperback)
The Runes are Wisdom for Living. And They are Living Wisdom.
Runes helps bridge the gap from ancient to modern by sharing the experiences and gnosis of a living Rune Walker of the Northern Traditions.
When I first began my relationship with the Runes (Elder Futhark and Anglo-Saxon Futhorc) almost two decades ago, I struggled to bridge the centuries and see Their ancient wisdom as relevant to my life. I dedicated hour after hour to memorizing their shapes, names, meanings, and associations. I collected many books, searching for common ground with little found. I progressed slowly, but the familiarity I longed for felt out of reach. Most of these feelings are simple to explain; I had no context for the Runes.
Through many years of experience with the Runes, I have come to know Them better. Knowing Them better has allowed me to see their application in today's world. The storylines and themes found in the Runes are real and applicable. In this book, you will find my personal stories about life, clients, business, and self-discovery.
In these pages, you will find my contribution to the ever-unfolding conversation of how to live in better alignment with ourselves, each other, and the world. You can expect to find my Rune poems, the shapes I most commonly use, the storylines and themes, deity and other being associations, as well as stories of how Rune wisdom can help us find the alignment we seek.
May you find memories in my stories, experiences, and poetry. May you find your hearth. May the relationships you begin to foster here lead to fulfillment, wholeness, and alignment.
