Visiting Völva

Völva Stav is a system of sacred body geometry and toning in a Norse cultural context created by Kari Tauring in 2003. Runes, staff rhythm, and voice combine to create physical alignment with the world tree of Norse cosmology.

Völva (Old Norse): a woman who carries the staff for Nordic people. The staff represents the oorlog and wyrd, the history, traditions, healing, songs, stories, dances and rituals of the culture.

Kari served Midwest Heathenry as volva elect from 2010 – 2015

Stav and Tein are the primary tools for ritual and cultural expression.
