Are you curious about the Runes – the ancient symbols that represent so much more than an alphabet? Are they part of a heritage that you want to explore more deeply? Join Imelda Almqvist for an introduction to the Runes of the Elder Futhark as energies of the cosmological cycle of creation and destruction, then stay for an advanced exploration of their deeper mystery teachings.
In the Introduction to the Runes, we work with:
  • the energy of the Runes that underlay cosmic cycles
  • exploring the energy of each Rune of the Elder Futhark
  • carving or painting your own set of runes
  • using your runes in divination for yourself and others
  • using Galder-incantation and chanting the Runes-to align with internal and external forces
In The Vitki – Advanced Techniques for Rune Magicians, we explore:
  • the Circle of the Runes, a mystery teaching that takes us through Gates of Initiation
  • bind runes and how to work with them
  • runes as a tool to perceive the fate of all beings, carved by the Norns
  • working with the Norns to receive a personalized “prescription” for yourself or others
  • taking our first steps on the path to becoming a Rune Magician.
Participants in each course will receive an electronic copy of Imelda’s detailed rune summary.

Registration is now open.

You may register for one or both workshops. A discount is available if you register for both courses at the same time.

Registration information and materials for Introduction to the Runes are here and for The Vitki, here.

What Imelda’s students are saying:

I can tell you this is worth the investment. My life and perspective is forever altered. – Kelly Wyrd, Canada 

This course is a game changer, it will challenge in ways you don’t expect, it is beautiful and magical. Insights come from academic study and the intuitive reflection. I am so glad I joined this programme, I would go so far as to say its the best course I have ever signed up for. – D.K., U.K.
