Exploring the history of esoteric runology and the work of the trailblazers of modern rune magic, including Guido von List, Friedrich Bernhard Marby, and Rudolf John Gorsleben, author Edred Thorsson details the secret practices and runic systems of the German rune magicians, including techniques for using runes in unprecedented ways to draw power into your life.
Thorsson explores all four of the traditional runic systems: the Older Futhark (24 runes), the Anglo-Frisian Futhorc (29-33 runes), the Younger Futhark (16 runes), and the Armanic Futhork (18 runes) developed by Guido van List. The author explains the similarities and differences between them as well as how they are all facets of the same underlying runic reality. He examines the early history and possible origins of runic symbols and systems, the renaissance of rune magic from 1919 to 1935, the effects of the Third Reich and Nazis on the runic revival, as well as the reemergence of German runology after World War II.
Thorsson details powerful runework techniques and exercises, including rune yoga and dance, runic hand gestures (mudras). rune singing (mantras), rune yodeling, runic healing, runic tantra and sex magic, group rites with runes, and two powerful methods of engaging transpersonal powers: the Ritual of the Ninth Night and the Ritual of the Grail Cup.
Edred Thorsson is the founder of the Rune-Gild and one of the top experts on runes alive today. He received his doctorate in Germanic languages and medieval studies from the University of Texas at Austin and studied the history of occultism at the University of Göttingen, Germany. He is the author of other well-known books on runes, including Futhark: A Handbook of Rune Magic and The Nine Doors of Midgard.
"...in both the esoteric and academic worlds, Edred’s books have been permanent companions. His books combine structure and academic rigor with a highly effective system for practicing rune magic... To read the works of Edred is part of the initiation into the secrets of the runes.” ─Thomas Karlsson, Ph.D., senior lecturer in history at Stockholm University. research fellow at Yale University, and author of Nightside of the Runes.
"...examines the intriguing and eccentric characters associated with runic esotericism in early twentieth-century Germany, providing both the historical and cultural background necessary for understanding their work as well as a practical introduction to their actual magical techniques.” ─Joshua Buckley, coeditor of TYR: Myth, Culture, Tradition.
