  • Author Diana L. Paxson

    Diana L. Paxson, a writer, priestess, and teacher, has been studying and teaching Germanic mythology and religion for nearly forty years. Paxson also pioneered the recovery of traditional Norse oracular practice. She is the author of numerous books, including Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, Magic. Visit her at www.hrafnar.org.

An accessible, in-depth exploration of the runes as a living spiritual tradition.

Diana Paxson has distilled her many years of experience working with the runes into this essential source book. Readers will learn the historical meaning of each individual rune and its use and meaning now, in contemporary culture.

But, Paxson reveals, the real power of the runes comes from internalizing them and using their symbols as sources of wisdom and power. At the end of each chapter are rituals and spells for all levels of ability that aim to help internalize the attributions, meanings, symbolism, and use of the runes.

Everything regarding runes is covered in this definitive workbook, from the history of runes and how to make your own rune sets, to how to work with them on a psychic, spiritual, and magical level.
