What Do the Runes Mean to You?

Have you ever looked up at the sky and wondered how far infinity stretches? Have you ever felt the ground beneath your feet and tried to imagine how old the earth is? Have you ever considered that people who lived thousands of years ago must have wondered what the future held, and yet here we are, in their future? Have you ever wondered why so much in our universe is dependable and regular, the effect of gravity, the speed of light or the stability of air and water? And yet so much is also unpredictable and constantly surprises us, the weather, the exact moment a wave will crash or the flight of a small bird.

Are you the kind of person who can wonder at the astonishing universe in which we live and yet still be capable of taking responsibility for your life? Do you know what kind of world you want to live in? Do you have any idea how you might create that world? Are you the kind of person who accepts that they cannot know everything but is still willing to walk their own path and on their own terms?

Do you aspire to self-reliance rather than depending upon others? Are you also prepared to support others when you know you can make a positive difference to their lives? Would you rather seek out truth and knowledge for yourself rather than have someone else feed you their version of reality? Do you believe that knowledge is only valuable if you can use it for a productive purpose and prove its value through practical application?

If the answer is yes to some, or even all, of these questions then Stav might be for you. Stav is a traditional form of education, passed down through the Hafkjold family in Norway for many hundreds of years. In the last generation or so Hafskjold–Stav has been taught outside of the original family and can be learned, practised and applied by anyone who is open minded enough to benefit.

Stav literally means 'knowledge of the Rune Staves' the runes being a structure for developing awareness and maturity in body, mind
