Runes (Indo-European) and Runos (Finno-Ugric) stem from the Sanskrit root word Ru – secret or whispered mystery. Rune symbols, their sounds, poems and stories are nature magical. Runes describe the öorlog and wyrd of Nordic people.
Kari began studying the runes and mythology of her Nordic heritage in 1988 as part of a linguistics course at the University of St. Thomas. It has been her life’s passion ever since.
Her new book, The Runes: A Deeper Journey (2016) replaces her 2007 release and gives a deeper understanding of the cultural mindset and beliefs of the ancient rune users without loosing their personal and modern day relevance.
