Do you want to learn more about the Runes?  Perhaps you're a beginner and you don't know where to start, or perhaps you've already begun to study the Runes and want to go deeper in your practice...

No matter your background, the Runes are powerful forces for personal transformation.

Approaching the Runes is a three week online course designed to foster a greater personal connection to the Runes of the Elder Futhark.  

Rather than focusing on memorizing "meanings" of various letters of the Futhark, this course will encourage students to experience the energies of the Runes in their everyday life while exploring primary documents and traditional sources. This approach leads to an ever-growing understanding of runic mysteries, while remaining grounded in a framework of objective historical knowledge.

This course will not only help those interested in growing as diviners or magicians, it will also benefit individuals interested in spiritual self-improvement, or even those just interested in learning more about the magico-religious practices and outlook of pre-Christian Norse people.

By the end of this course, you will be able to accurately divine with Runes, and use them for rituals of self transformation.

About the instructor: 

A second-generation Neo-Pagan, Phillip began his study of the Elder Futhark, Runecraft, and Norse Magic at the age of nine under the tutelage of his father. Simply put, his praxis is that of the Vitki: or Norse Magician.

In his late teens, being obliged by Odin to pursue magical knowledge, he began an earnest study of the myriad streams of magical practice and spiritual philosophy throughout the world- paying close attention to Western Hermeticism, Gnosticism and Ceremonial Magick.

He is an initiate of Ordo Templi Orientis, and the Blue Lodge degrees of Freemasonry. He has given lectures, talks, and classes on various topics focusing on ritual magick, Norse magical traditions, spirituality in everyday life, the occult and the history of esoteric societies.

As one of the co-founders of Catland Books, he has had the privilege of experiencing the legion that are the streams of Magical practice as they manifest in NYC - The Crossroads of the World. His work has lead him to learn from and interact with a wide array of respected elders, authors, and authorities in the field, and he has earned a reputation as a highly talented Rune reader and ritual performance artist. He is a proud member of a thriving metaphysical community of students and seekers after wisdom, and seeks to facilitate his fellow aspirants in their pursuit of light.
