Rune Lore with Kari Tauring
September 14, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$90
Kari kicks off her 2017-2018 teaching schedule with this three-part rune lore course
Thursday Evenings September 14, 21, and 28.
The Norse Runes are more than just letters in an ancient alphabet. They are symbols with sounds, meanings, and stories that describe the ancient migrations into the the Nordic lands from the Ice Age to the present. Ru is the Sanskrit root of Indo-European runes and Finno-Ugric runos. The oldest complete alphabet (circa 300 ACE) is organized into three ætts (8 letter family groupings) with mythic connections to the Vanir, Aesir, and Jotuns of Norse mythology. They speak of things every Minnesotan can relate to: Birch, Lake, Cow, and Ice.
The first ætt starts with cows and wild bison. The second ætt may well be the oldest group whose meanings and stories tell of creation, the Norns, and our place in the World Tree cosmology! The third ætt summarizes the first two and brings everything into balance.
Finally, Kari will help you translate your name into the runes, discover its meaning, and sound as you sing/chant it. We will also pay special attention to the four water runes: Estuary, Hail, Ice, and Lake.
Space is limited, so reserve your spot in the class today!
