    I Used To Be Able To...

    I first began studying the Runes about 15 yrs ago, when I was in high school. I even used to write letters and journals in the runic alphabet. I never had my own set- I had no money to buy them nor the materials to really make my own- so I never really practiced divination with...

    Taking Up the Runes

    The largest part of my spiritual practice actually started with a very mundane desire:   I wanted a tattoo.    I had thought of getting a Chinese character, dao or ren or wuwei, all concepts I had studied intensely that were near and dear to my heart.  I had...

    My First Set

    I recently bought my first set! It's a book/rune set from the bookstore. A bit lame perhaps, but I see those things as a good "beginner's set".  Can't wait to learn how to use them!
