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 #6: KA
Meanings: Cunning, Art, capability, artist, genius, being favored, the child, that which is established, generation, ability and artfulness. Female principle in the universe, as executive power of balancing justice; sensuality, higher consciousness.
KA is the crafty counterpart to RIT. Where RIT is the Rune of law and trust, KA is the Rune of the cunning and the stunning, deflecting curses and disabling foes quietly. Use KA when RIT is ignored and justice cannot be gotten by overt means, as well as for skill in art, creativity, and mystical wisdom. KA is the torchlight of poets, artists, music and dance.
KA-Rune Asana or Stadha: Stand upright, arms raised up by 30 degrees, palms facing up.
KA-Rune Mantra or Galdr: k k k k k k / Ka Ka Ka / ka ke ki ko ku / kien kun kaun kona kuna kena
KA-Rune Mudra or Handstadha: Left hand open, thumb angled up by 30 degrees above horizontal. Other fingers vertical.
