Futhark Back Cover:
In Futhark, rune master Edred Thorsson re-initiates us into our heritage, explaining the mysteries of a profound system of thought and practice that underlies our developing Western culture.
Futhark covers both the spiritual heritage of ancient runic lore and the practical steps we can take to draw on rune power. This complete book of rune instruction includes the history and lore, its basis in metaphysical thought and mysticism, complete definitions of the twenty-four runes of the Elder Futhark, and the etymology, phonetic value and interpretation of each rune. The reader will learn how to perform chants and rituals using runic energy, how to sign and send runes, and how to practice runic meditation.
First published in 1984, the new Weiser Classic edition has been revised throughout and includes a new preface by the author.
Edred Thorsson is an American runologist and proponent of occultism and Germanic mysticism. He is the author of over forty books on runology, Germanic myth and tradition, and Indo-European religion and culture.
