Primstav Poet

The Medieval Norwegian Primstav Calendar tells the story of how my ancestors maintained their moon/sun/seasonal practices while being obliged to follow the "new" Gregorian church calendar.

I began an on-line study with fellow Nordic root folks here in Minneapolis on the "Summer Side" April 14, 2019. My intention has been to create poetry around my experiences. 

Primstav Poet patrons remind me to express my process creatively as I dig into the often disturbing stories of the saints and the usually profound experiences of seasonal relationship.

Stav Supporter

Stav supporters help me get my curriculum onto an on-line platform through Needfire Academy. Völva Stav literally means the Staff Carrying Woman's Staff and describes my philosophy of Nordic spiritual practice 

Supporters helped fund four online workshops in 2020:

Frith and Grith - boundary setting in Norse tradition. Engage the goddesses of peace and truce as you learn to set boundaries in a clear, honest, and respectful way.

The Runes - based on my book and iPhone app - I sing all the runes with my vocal looper and do lots of show and tell. 

Soul Parts and Healing - describes the metaphysical, cosmological, and mythic inter-dimensional world of Norse culture. Learn about the goddesses of healing.

Dream Work - a consistently requested workshop.

2021 will see additions to the above classes and a push towards getting the physical stav practice into more bodies!

For Teachers

per month
As I do these monthly rune pulls, meditation cycles, poetic expressions, and workshops, I will meet once a month with the Teachers group. Teaching others to teach this work is what really deepens the reality of it.

I will send you notes will in the form of writing, photos, and videos that you can share with the groups you are working with.

Your emails to me will be answered fully and in a timely way!

Thank you for helping me "up my game!"

About Kari Tauring

Velkommen alle sammen!  Welcome Everyone!

Free for All Visitors - Each New Moon starts a new month on the Old Norse Calendar. I will pull runes and write what inspires me about that moon and those runes. I will do the same on the Full Moon of each Old Norse month. This is a fun way to learn about the nature of these moon names and the runes! 

Primstav Poets - Disciplined learning around the medieval Norwegian Primstav calendar and the feelings that come up, translated into poetry. I align pre-Christian agricultural/seasonal folk knowlege with the Gregorian church calendar that my Norwegian ancestors used. Nature is tended among brutal Saint stories. It is intense. You get the poems first. :)

Stav Supporters - Stav and staving are my original ways of expressing Nordic root metaphysics, cosmology, mythology, runes, sound, rhythm, movement, song, dance, and spiritual development -  Völva Stav. 

These supporters receive notes and graphics to my on-line classes through Needfire Academy.  

Teachers - give me feedback in my class offerings. They help me get the work done and inspire me by sharing their own! 

Many thanks to all,

Kari Tauring
