Kari Tauring is a völva, staff carrier of Nordic tradition. Völva (Old Norse): a woman who carries the staff, the history, magic, and cultural legacy of the Nordic people. In 2010, Kari was elected to represent the Midwest as völva at the Midwest Thing, recognized for her scholarship and ability to share the deep roots of the culture through songs, stories, and teaching. Her Volva Stav training program teaches this method of cultural expression internationally through on-line resources.
On this show, she will share with us her knowledge and understanding of spå, a type of Nordic magic. The Norse traditions view magic differently then many Pagan and Wiccan traditions, so we will be talking about those differences, as well.
