A Journey into Northern Myth, Ritual, Runes and Cosmology
Myth; Ritual; Runes; Glean insight into the Northern myth-world!
Andreas Kornevall joins AO Premium to present the Norse creation myth and the story that lies at the very heart of Norse mythology: the Birth of Wisdom. He will reveal the relationship between the runes and the Norse creation myth, and will discuss ancient rune amulets such as the ancient bracteates and runes stones. Join us to discover theories of how rune amulets were used magically, and what influenced the magician who worked with them throughout the thousand-year history of runic writing. It will be a journey that will take us to ancient mystery cults and to lost star constellations. Much of this material has never before been translated into English. This compelling webinar will be a combination of storytelling, lecture and discussion.
