The Elder Futhark


The World Tree (known as Yggdrasil) is you, yourself.

Odin was a great sage who taught his people transcendental secrets of the world.
You can know and experience these mysteries and great powers for yourself by
looking into yourself, You, the Great Tree who stands between Heaven and Earth .

It is not easy, what Odin did, to stand in the rune postures for nine days,
Hanging in the Tree of Yggdrasil, one standing rune for each day.
But standing or "hanging" in these postures will open the deep mystery of Ginnungagap,
the gap of gaps, the abyss of abysses, the yawning, gaping abyss,

the great void both outside of you and inside of you.

But there is more. Discover the Ancient Power of European Man and Woman,
those mighty ones who left their secrets waiting for you in the Runes


Move as slowly as an ancient oak tree or pine, swaying in a gentle breeze -  much, much slower than you see here.

Remain solidly rooted but shift your weight slightly like a cat.

Let your neck straighten and stretch as you point your elbow as if spearing an enemy on its tip.

Feet rooted to the earth like Yggdrasil, top of your head touching the infinite sky.
