Norse Journey Workings. This is an intensive training session for intermediate students of Nordic lore and spirituality. You should have a basic grasp of the Runes and some of the Norse Worldview before attending. Kari's Books are great introductions, though her rune classes would be better.
You will learn the history of the staff carrying tradition, align with the world tree, explore your spiritual bodies, and journey through the nine worlds of Yggdrasil. You will understand how to attain a state of seidr to use in galder, spae, herbalism, journey and ritual.
Völva is a reclaimed word from Old Norse which means staff carrier. The women and men who were Völvas and Viktis carried their healing, far-seeing, ceremonial, and magical practice throughout Scandinavia and the Baltic. Kari has learned this tradition through study of archeology, runes and written texts (Eddas and Sagas), practice of her folk traditions, stories and songs and through direct contact with her ancestors and disr using Völva Stav.
Völva Stav is Kari's system for teaching and practicing the staff carrying tradition. Völva Stav is the culmination of a life time of discipline in spiritual, musical, and martial arts, Norse cosmology, theology, and metaphysics. It's essential goal is to create alignment with the world tree, perceive and heal the oorlog. Healing patterns of Inherited Cultural Grief inherent in all cultures severed from their deep root traditions, is essential for creating a healed future for our children.
