Counsel of the Runes
All the work I do, all the wisdom I share, is informed by and deeply rooted in the ancient teachings of the runes. Their wisdom reminds us that without roots and without the dark places where the roots grow and are fed, we are out of balance and cannot live fully here on earth. Ancient rune wisdom provides a much needed grounding energy for New Age spirituality with its intense focus on and emphasis on the mind, enlightenment, high vibrations and higher consciousness. Rune wisdom goes beyond the scripturalization and codification of religion. It restores balance between the dark and light, the above and below, and the human and divine. It is timeless, universal and relevant.
What can you expect?
Rune Readings provide you with insights, information and answers. The time we spend together can be intense and rewarding. I speak often in stories, using word pictures, gently guiding you back into your body, into yourself, into your ancestral memories, so you can remember and connect with your own inner wisdom. Together we will journey down to the root of a matter. Sometimes what I say can be difficult to hear and even at times, confusing. Whether you like the information doesn't matter. Rune wisdom works on a vibrational level so it will resonate deep inside you, reminding you of what you already know.
You will be affected, no matter what. How greatly you allow this deep, ancient wisdom to affect you depends upon your willingness to listen and act upon what is uncovered and discovered during a reading.

The Nornir are the wise women of Norse mythology who sit at the well in the roots of the World Tree and spin and weave the threads of the Wyrd, what was, what is, and what is coming forth from necessity.

$498 for three consecutive, one-hour sessions.
The Great Wheel Journey:
One Complete Year's Cycle With The Runes
The Great Wheel Journey: One Complete Year's Cycle With The Runes
The Great Wheel Journey. A series of 12 one-hour sessions and 12 half-hour support sessions by email. These personal readings set the stage for understanding what patterns have already been woven into your life by the Nornir and support you in weaving your own threads into the Web of the Wyrd. Rune wisdom can be used to support and guide you on your journey. The runes uncover and reveal what's at the root of what's happening, opening you up to what's coming to meet you so you can be awake to the possibilities ahead. Installment payments are available in certain situations. Email email@example.com for more information about using this option.
The Great Wheel begins with a desire, a willingness and commitment to change.
Because of the intensity of this work, I only take on a select group of clients for the Great Wheel each year.
It's commonly said that it takes 30 days to form a new habit. The runes teach us that in order to fully understand, integrate and live something new, we must be willing to turn the great wheel and live through the seasons and cycles of one complete year. This is true for things that are beginning as well as things that are ending.
Our first session we will cast a wheel using the runes, marking the dark moons and the full moons. We will look for patterns and repeats, places of movement and places of rest and more. Each moon you will meet with me either in person or by phone and we will explore the runes already drawn for that moon as well as draw from the pouch, adding to the information already in place.
Cost: $3510 for 12 one-hour sessions combined with 12 half-hour support sessions by email, spread out over the course of a year.
These sessions can be done in person if you live in the area of Portland, Oregon and I work with people nationwide as well as internationally using various platforms such as Zoom, Skype or FaceTime.
Installment payments are available on a case by case basis. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about installment payments.
It is not sitting down with a psychic or fortune teller to ask a question of your future. It is working with a trusted advisor or counselor. It is not being told what is going to happen or what you must do. It is being asked where you are heading, what you want to do, and being held accountable for your actions. It is looking at what you are doing and being honest about whether the steps you are taking will get you where you say you want to go.
This may seem like questions and answers you can work through yourself but Ingrid with the Runes asks the RIGHT questions at the RIGHT time to really make you think about your answers. And they DO provide advice and sometimes not so gentle nudges in the right direction. Ingrid and her work with the Runes does not provide you with the “answers”. I’m certain Ingrid and the Runes know the answers. But do we learn something by being told the answer or by being led by a teacher or advisor to the right way to find the answer ourselves? The answers are within all of us. She helps us find the answers and be honest enough to acknowledge those answers, even when they may not be the ones we wanted.
This whole process is so much more opening and soul satisfying when you can do it on a monthly basis. I’ve been working with Ingrid for over two years now. When you make the commitment to work with her on a regular basis you are making a commitment to yourself. The regular cadence of meeting keeps you moving, gives you opportunity to question and adjust and really gives you that regular touch-point to stop the motion of life and ensure you are still heading in the right direction.
How many of us live life on autopilot, going through the motions because that’s what we’ve been doing for a very long time?
Working with Ingrid on a monthly basis you can look back and see what has changed in your life based on the work. You can look forward and know that you have the right tools and advice to effect more change. You can CHOOSE to do something different and live life differently, consciously, intentionally. - Trish Cowles, Beaverton Oregon
"I can highly recommend committing to a full year of monthly (moon cycle) rune readings. Working with the runes over an extended period of time has been transforming. In my first year, Ingrid helped me to understand the intensity of what the runes were speaking. In the second, she offered wisdom to harness the runic energies as they began to define new paths for me to follow. In another moon I will be entering my third year of work in this way, and I welcome both the time with Ingrid and the information from these ancient beings. Both experiences have become essential." -Lara Vesta, Portland Oregon
More Kind Words
My intention was to complete a lunar year. She drew a circle and then I carefully pulled runes from her leather pouch, wolf bones and deer antlers, rowan and apple wood. I would draw 2 runes, one for the dark moon and one for the full moon, she’d mark them on the wheel and then I’d put them back into the pouch. I did this 13 times, each time drawing from a full pouch.
Each reading builds on the previous month.. I have experienced many changes at this time in my life, and have felt Ingrid’s guidance and support and her work has been invaluable to my growth. I encourage you to schedule an appointment with her; you won’t be disappointed." ----Luna Whitney
I happened upon an event where Ingrid Kincaid was a speaker and felt instantly drawn to her. So I listened to her talk and visited her website. I saw she offered Rune readings and knew I had to have a reading with her.
I have always wanted a reading, of any kind, that spoke to the depth I live from. I have asked various people (tarot readers, astrologers, psychics, etc.) over the decades to not hold back, to deep dive, to be as intense as they want/can, etc. but nothing much has come from it – I get basic info and little insight – not what I am seeking.
This reading with Ingrid was everything I had hoped for and more.
Ingrid is, truly, an Elder. And she is the real deal with the Runes.
I had asked three questions with zero context – meaning she knew nothing at all about me. The answers I received, and the way I received them, were rich, wise, deep, and full of a connection only one who sincerely knows the Runes can have. And they were so spot-on and specific.
Basically, she blew my mind.
Ingrid is that rare combination of fierce and soft that can only come from depth and age and facing the fire. She is TRULY gifted as well. The combination of that gift with the seasoning of an Elder is most remarkable and humbling and powerful.
If you are seeking deeper meaning and understanding, you would indeed be blessed to have any amount of time and energy that Ingrid might choose to share with you.
