The Interior Shores of Norse Mythology
with Andreas Kornevall
Tuesday 17th January 2023 – 6:30pm-8:00pm (UK time) via Zoom
Join Andreas Kornevall for an evening presentation of Northern Myth, Seidr, Ritual and Runes. In this talk, Andreas will introduce us to the enchantments, practices, wonder tales and myths that form the mythical dreaming of Northern Europe – myths and fairytales that have shaped much of Great Britain and Northern Europe for centuries. Through these stories and myths, we will explore essential questions about wisdom; where can it be found today? Also what rituals and practices can we start to develop that bring us closer to reconciliation with each other and the landscape we live in, whether it is rural or urban? There will also be a presentation and discussion of the multi-soul idea in Northern folklore and how it relates to folk-magic.
Andreas will also introduce the oracular and metaphysical nature of runes and especially their graphic element that can guide us to our deep imagination, opening up a philosophical conversation about the origins of our written languages. This talk will lay out the theoretical framework for a full day gathering a few weeks later which will be more practically oriented.
For those who cannot attend live, there will be a recording available after the session has taken place. Simply book a ticket via the button below, and the recording link will be sent with the joining instructions.

Andreas Kornevall is an author, storyteller and ecological activist. He grew up in South America, Sweden and Switzerland, and now directs the Earth Restoration Service charity. In response to the sixth mass extinction, he was the catalyst behind the Life Cairn movement: memorials for species rendered extinct at human hands. As a storyteller, he works with old myths and fairytales which shine a torch light on life’s journey; his stories tend to gravitate around the Norse material which have led him to lecture and perform in universities and other educational centres. He is a member of the ‘Forn Sed’ (Old Customs Association) in Sweden which works closely with ancient Norse culture, traditions and spirituality, unearthing old legends, forgotten folklore and endangered Norse languages. Through his charity he has planted over 200 woodlands in the United Kingdom and he has recently been voted by the University of Southern California as one of their 100 spiritual exemplars.
