Older Than The Gods - The Runes And The Giants In Northern Tradition
The Jotun are coming back with a vengence! We need to pay attention.
Three Week Series:
Saturday mornings from 10-11:30 PST
March 13, 20, 27, 2021
Week 1: Fire and Ice: Retelling the Story of Ymir and Audhumbla
Week 2: The Nine Runes of the Giants: Importance, Relevance and Relationship to the Elder Futhark
Week 3: Honoring the Jotun Gods
What happens when the gods of wild nature, the primal beings unable to be tamed or controlled, are ignored, portrayed as evil, and at odds with and enemies of the high gods? How fixation on the Aesir, Odin and the Elder Futhark creates a limited and biased understanding of the runes, the gods and the ancestors. Why scholarly interpretations of the small amounts of lore found in the Eddas present an unbalanced perspective of the gods as good guys.
You will need a set of 33 runes for this class and a copy of the book
