Armanen Rune-Yoga Lesson 15: MAN-Rune

By popular request, I am posting my basic Rune-Yoga lessons on here for educational use!

Rune-Yoga, or Stadhagaldr, is a unique part of the Armanen tradition, per S.A. Kummer, going back to ancient Rune-Masters as a physical and spiritual meditation exercise for both warriors and mystics, and has some parallels in other Indo-European exercise traditions. It is heavily based in Od-energy work. Rune-Yoga postures are practiced standing up, forming the shape of the Rune to manifest its energy flow. The text in this basic course is my own, though heavily inspired by the work of Guido von List, S.A. Kummer, and Karl Spiesberger. Some of what you see here will look very familiar to you if you have read their books, and some things will be new, based on my own insights and experience in the practice.

Rune-Yoga has its own terminology, mostly in Old Norse and Old High German. Postures or Asanas are called Stodhr. Rune Mantras are called Galdr. The Mudras or hand positions are called Handstodhr. The Handstodhr can be practiced in a sitting pose, either silently or while singing the same rune's Galdr, anywhere that practicing full Stadhagaldr is not possible. There are also some more advanced Handstodhr combinations used in a live Rune-Yoga session.

Rune #15: MAN



Meanings: Man, masculinity, increase, health, plenty, magick, Spirit, truth. Organic growth of strength, skill, and wisdom through action, life reaching Sunward, order through which creation is refined. God-Man, male principle in the cosmos.

MAN is the rune of Divine Magick, and the organic growth of life. It nourishes the Will and repels negativity and enemies. MAN strengthens the aura, and draws one's internal energy up and out in resonance with the branches of the World Tree Yggdrasil, at the same time it draws powerful Od-energy down from Yggdrasil and the All, into the body to cleanse impurities. It taps into dormant root-memories and releases them, unlocking Power and natural mastery of skills. Use MAN to increase resiliency and the Will, and build up strength, courage, and wisdom long before you will need it.

MAN-Rune Asana or Stadha: Stand upright, arms spread apart upwards as diagonal branches, hands facing up.

MAN-Rune Mantra or Galdr: m m m m m m / Man Man Man / Ma me mi mo mu / am em im om um / Man Madhr mathr / manna Mani Manu Mannus Mannaz / Mim Mimir Mamre / O M (Ausa-Man, God-Man)

MAN-Rune Mudra or Handstadha: First three fingers of right hand spread up and out, last two fingers curled up.

Armanen Rune-Yoga Lesson 13: BAR-Rune

There are also some more advanced Handstodhr combinations used in a live Rune-Yoga session.  

Previously we looked at the second Six of the 18 Armanen Runes, known together as Yggdrasil's Root of Being. Now we arrive at the third Six Runes – which form Yggdrasil's Root of Passing Away. Everything in Rune-Magick revolves around the three phases of reincarnation: Arising, Being, and Passing Away [to New Arising].

Rune #13: BAR


Meanings: Becoming, birth, being protected, help in birth, son, bread, song, fountain, mountains. Birch tree (layers of safety), rebirth, bier (pyre – death in one form and rebirth into the next), meaning of life on this planet, in this world.

BAR is the Rune of birth and rebirth, both physical and spiritual, though gradually and without sacrifice (which differentiates it from the more warlike TYR-Rune). It is a Rune of Return to the Mothers, and to possible reincarnation. BAR is also associated with motherhood itself, and helps with birth as well as spiritual birth of new consciousness.

BAR-Rune Asana or Stadha: Stand upright, Hands together, arms bent at elbows in wedge formation (left elbow raised up by the head, right elbow bent down). Right leg raised bent, with right foot resting on left knee. Balance well!

BAR-Rune Mantra or Galdr: b b b b b b / Bar Bar Bar / ba be bi bo bu / bar bor bir birk björk / bjarkan berche birka brikal berkane

BAR-Rune Mudra or Handstadha: Left thumb and index finger touching in a wedge, middle finger curved in a loop to touch main joint of index finger, remaining fingers curve parallel with middle finger.
