Bindrunes: Rune Sigils for Today

The ancient writing system of Runes was used throughout the Germanic and Scandinavian lands from the 2nd to the 11th centuries. They have been revived in modern times for use in magickal and divination use as part of a Germanic-based spirituality (Heathenism/Asatru). Bindrunes unite the energies of individual Runes as a sigil for magickal talismans/purposes as part of your spiritual journey. This workshop will introduce you to bindrunes and provide tools to create a bindrune (during the workshop) to aid you in setting your intentions into the universe. Previous rune knowledge is helpful but not required. We will work with the Elder Futhark Runes.
