Event Details

Exploring the Runes

NOTE: This course will occur every Wednesday night at Catland 7-9pm for 12 weeks. One ticket is good for full admission

            Most contemporary thought about the Runes falls into one of two categories: that of personal gnosis influenced by the syncretic practices of modern western magic, and that of strict historical reconstruction which view modern magical innovations relating to the runes as a-historic and heretical.


            This twelve week course will take a middle position. Its initial aims are to familiarize the beginner with the objective historical development of the various Futharks (early Germanic alphabets) that form what we commonly call “The Runes” as well as to dispel some commonly held misconceptions about the Runes held by more experienced practitioners.


After separating objective fact from speculative myth, this course will then provide a basis from which a student may begin to utilize the runes within contemporary magical practice.


Students of this course can expect to learn:

  • Objective historical knowledge about the runes and academic rune studies
  • How to discern objective truths from subjective myths about the Runes
  • How to utilize the gnosis of contemporary runic magic in the context of Norse traditions in personal magical practice and divination.


To allow for as much one on one interaction as possible, class size is limited to 12 students.

Readings will include primary historical documents alongside modern magical writing, and yes, there will be practical instruction on carving rune staves, magic, and divination.

Phillip English

Vitki Arts is the home of the various spiritual consultation services offered by Phillip English.

A second-generation Neo-Pagan, Phillip began his study of the Elder Futhark, Runecraft, and Norse Magic at the age of nine under the tutelage of his father. Simply put, his praxis is that of the Vitki: or Norse Magician.

In his late teens, being obliged by Odin to pursue magical knowledge, he began an earnest study of the myriad streams of magical practice and spiritual philosophy throughout the world- paying close attention to Western Hermeticism, Gnosticism and Ceremonial Magick.

He is an initiate of Ordo Templi Orientis, and the Blue Lodge degrees of Freemasonry. He has given lectures, talks, and classes on various topics focusing on ritual magick, Norse magical traditions, spirituality in everyday life, the occult and the history of esoteric societies.

As one of the co-founders of Catland Bookstore, he has had the privilege of experiencing the legion that are the streams of Magical practice as they manifest in NYC - The Crossroads of the World. His work has lead him to learn from and interact with a wide array of respected elders, authors, and authorities in the field, and he has earned a reputation as a highly talented Rune reader and ritual performance artist. He is a proud member of a thriving metaphysical community of students and seekers after wisdom, and seeks to facilitate his fellow aspirants in their pursuit of light.
