"The earth is in upheaval again.
Great change is upon us.
Rune wisdom is reappearing for us out of the melting ice.
It is the same wisdom that fed, guided and protected our indigenous Northern European ancestors.
It is neither male nor female.
It is neither bad nor good, dark nor light, immoral nor moral.
Rune wisdom is the wisdom of life in constant motion and perfect balance, sourced from the darkness of the great void,
chaos coming into form and returning again to the darkness.
It is time for us to remember.”

This is an 9-week, self-directed home study class. The first 3 sessions cover the nine runes of the Jotunfolk and the following 6 cover the 24 runes of the Elder Futhark. Each session includes a live audio recording (approximately 2 hours) of Ingrid teaching the actual class in Portland, Oregon. It also includes a copy of the book 'The Runes Revealed-an (un) familiar journey.
Once you register and pay you will receive instructions about how to access the Private Page with the audio downloads and your book will be mailed to you.
This in-depth exploration can be done at your own pace, and the live recordings allow for you to listen over and over again.
This fast-paced, intensive class includes challenging discussions and thought-provoking questions. I offer suggestions and provide examples of various ways to develop personal relationships with the runes as well asl help you explore creative ways to live in harmony with their ancient wisdom in a modern world.
The class does not follow the usual custom of dividing the runes into aetts and then pairing them up. Rather I take three runes at a time and explore them as triplets. This change allows for new insights, connections and mysteries to emerge. As the ice is melting, the runes are being revealed.
I cannot teach you how to 'read the runes.' It's not a matter of memorizing meanings. They are older than scripture, go beyond language and are ever changing yet always the same. What I do teach is how to look for and see the runes, how to listen to them, how to ask questions and then trust the answers and information you are getting.
The rune symbols or staves, as we know them, are the signatures for ancient beings who hold within themselves deep, resonant vibrations that are timeless, universal truths.
An understanding of the runes is about relationship and about listening to them, honoring them as being alive and vibrating.
Being able to do that requires that you create and nurture your own relationship with them and learn how to listen to the wisdom they have to share with you. It is about always being willing to ask questions, never imaging you have answers.
What I can and will teach you are basic meanings and interpretations of the rune staves. I will also share with you different and specific situations where their wisdom and power can be used for guidance, healing, magic and strength.
I will speak to you about how to explore and venture into requesting relationship with the primal giants, as well as the various gods and goddesses, and other beings, who are associated with and connected to the runes.
Do you hear the runes calling? Will you begin the journey today?

An essential exploration into the mysteries and esotericism of the North
"Ingrid invites you on a journey into the depths of time, which is also the depths of ourselves. These depths are just as present now as they ever have been, and Ingrid's teachings show you how to bridge the perceived expanses between you and the all-but-forgotten mysteries of the North. In Ingrid's class you will have the opportunity to spark a meeting, a relationship, with the ancient beings that are the Runes...The way I experience the world around me and within me is forever changed. There are stories which are our own. There are beings who live in and beyond time who are just as vibrant and energetic as they were for our distant ancestors. I feel as though I have met the living, growing fabric of Being, and I am forever grateful to Ingrid for the introduction."
