Graham will lead morning Stav sessions when we will explore the runes as manifested as stances. In each stance we root ourselves in the earth while reaching for the sky. We will also discover the animal exercises associated with each rune. These are good exercise, teach the animal associations of the runes and introduce some useful self-defence skills. In his workshop Graham will see how many of the associated trees are present in the locality. When we have found them we will learn how to identify them, share the lore passed down about them and discover the uses of each tree. For thousands of years people have depended upon trees for their very survival, trees have always been trees of life.
