Spinning and Weaving Runes in Norse Tradition
From time immemorial, the tools of wool work have been used to express the creation mythologies, metaphysical mysteries, and magic (runes and runos) of Nordic spinners and weavers.
Each of us is born with a spindle of thread spun by our ancestors. In Norse tradition, this is called the öorlog. Öorlog is an old Norse word meaning “primal law” – the things that came before us that are sturdy and stable and can’t be move – the stuff that’s been spun and can’t be un-spun. You got what you got…. But we can change our attitudes and emotional responses, and we can choose to spin our strand differently.
No strand of öorlog stands on its own. These threads weave together to create the fabric of the community, the earth and earth energy, and of our deepest ancestors which, in Norse tradition, is the gods themselves. These connections create the web of wyrd.
The word rune comes from “ru” meaning “secret.” Runes are phonemes (units of sounds) and also words with historical and spiritual significance. They are symbols that repeat themselves in traditional weavings, dance forms, and even skiing patterns with meanings that exist deep within our ancient memory. Their sounds and stories are nature magical. They are a living and organic system that connects each user to her or his environment, life condition, and öorlog.
Join us as volva (staff carrier), Kari Tauring, spins and weaves us down this path with spindles, runes, runos, and movement.
