    Runes: Good For What Ails Ya!

    I've been working with runes for almost three years, though I think they get the short shrift when treated as the Norse equivalent of tarot cards.  Runes have many uses, including:   1) Meditation: While Vipassina and Metta meditations are good for gaining wisdom or...

    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...

    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!
