The word ‘rune’ means mystery, whisper or secret, and is a form of divination that has been used for centuries. This ancient Nordic oracle system has been used to heal, help gain insights and divine answers from the Universe (in our case, the Wooniverse). It was one of the first divination systems I ever used, and still love to this day.
This week on INSIDE THE WOONIVERSE, I’m speaking with author, healer and rune master, Rich Lister. Rich is a trained nurse, educator, artist, coach and fire walking instructor – and this is only a shortlist of what he’s really good at. He’s passionate about self-determination, and helps people around the world develop resilience using the skills they have within to become the best-ever version of themselves.
In this conversation, we speak about viking tradition and culture, the power of the runes and incorporating ancient wisdom into the everyday.
