“Within the pages of Wild Soul Runes: Reawakening the Ancestral Feminine, you will find a 33-week course that embeds your consciousness in the realm of the Runes by immersing you in a rune a week. You are “going under the cloak” to gain a greater understanding of where these symbols come from including historical context and no less than four translations per rune. Vesta has created the perfect blending of scholarship and personal gnosis to form a complete picture of that rune’s teaching and bringing the reader wholly into each rune’s realm.”
"In her book Wild Soul Runes, Lara Vesta presents a concise history of the runic alphabet and a powerful workbook for listening to, learning from, and intimately knowing the runes. In this work the runes emerge as individuals, as beings, that taken together create a community that imparts transformative wisdom."
“Wild Soul Runes is now one of my top recommended, go-to books for those who wish to begin their studies with the runes and who truly wish to engage with them deeply, developing a relationship with them and welcoming them into their lives."
“Although I have worked with the ancestors most of my life, Wild Soul Runes gave me even more ideas to add to my ancestral toolkit. At the author's suggestion, I took time to write with the ancestors each morning, then paused, giving them time to write back. This advice, alone, was priceless. In addition, the way the author allowed the runes to ask their own questions, challenged me to peer into the intersection of where seemingly contradictory energies meet. The questions and the subsequent journaling made the runes far more personal to me than I'd ever felt before.”
"In recent times, runes seem to have been relegated to the realm of the masculine with many considering Galdr, the practice of rune song, to be a skill used by men. However, these mysteries are open and available to anyone of any gender or cultural background. As evidence of this, Lara Veleda Vesta deftly reclaims the feminine power of the runes by inviting you to explore these ancient concepts in your own way through self-inquiry and personal exploration, while keeping one foot firmly rooted in Old Norse wisdom. A recommended read for those seeking the ancient wisdom of runes while exploring their own path of spiritual growth."
“In Wild Soul Runes, Lara Veleda Vesta beautifully demonstrates a deep knowledge of the runes and explains their connection to the Divine Feminine. Vesta has created a wonderful practice to deepen your personal journey with the runes. Whether you are an experienced practitioner or a new beginner, this book will deepen your comprehension. We thoroughly enjoyed reading and learning from these pages and know that you will, too.”
“Take a walk on the ‘wild side’ of the runes with Lara Veleda Vesta, as she leads readers on a unique journey. Wild Soul Runes moves between the subconscious layers of the web of Wyrd to connect to the ancestors by inward journey and meditation, as well as tapping into the mysteries with the aid of the Norns and Gullveig. The weekly rune exercises and ancestor work offer readers a deep and introspective spiritual growth opportunity.”
