Week 1: Fire and Ice: Retelling the Story of Ymir and Audhumbla

Week 2: The Nine Runes of the Giants: Importance, Relevance & Relationship to the Elder Futhark

Week 3: Honoring the Jotun Gods


  • What happens when the gods of wild nature, the primal beings unable to be tamed or controlled, are ignored, portrayed as evil, and at odds with and enemies of the high gods?


  • How does fixation on the Aesir, Odin and the Elder Futhark create a limited and biased understanding of the runes, the gods and the ancestors?


  • Why do scholarly interpretations of the small amounts of lore found in the Eddas present an unbalanced perspective of the gods as good guys?


Local author, educator Ingrid Kincaid is an irreverent wise woman. Her connection with the runes is ancestral. She skillfully weaves a tapestry of ancient mystery, practical wisdom, intuition and creativity.


Ingrid is an internationally known author, educator and a staff carrying elder in the Norse Tradition.
