    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!

    I Just Made My Very Own Runes-- So

    now I've made three divination tools. I've made a pendulum, a scrying mirror, and runes. I haven't used the runes yet; I have just finished making them. I am so happy. I like making divination tools; it makes a fun arts and crafts activity, and when they work, it makes the...

    Runes In Popular Culture

    Part of my interest in runes came from seeing the iconography scattered around the Catholic church I was attending.  The one that caught my eye was the Y-shaped cross design covering the priest's purple robe.  I don't know why, but I sensed definitively that it what...
