Format: Paperback
This is an introductory book into the lives and workings of the early 20th century rune magicians giving detailed instructions and theories of their rune postures, hand postures and rune singing. As the author, whether known as Edred Thorsson or Stephen Edred Flowers, has used their theories and techniques in formulating his own magical runic system, this is an important work in understanding all the authors runic writings and what he has adapted to the historical Older FUTHARK and the other historical runic scripts. It is also of value to those interested in the true origins and workings of rune stances. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars BAR-OS-MAN: Stepping into cosmic energy streams 27 Dec. 2008
By Jj Pieterse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rune Might is a small booked packed with vital information on the Runes and its use for self empowerment. Mr Thorson demonstrates an in depth background in the writings of the Germanic Rune masters and provide multiple references for further research. The historical background provided seems fair and without bias and help t place the Germanic rune masters in context of the runic revival.

The book contains information on the runes not available in other books covering the runes. Sometimes however the book only gives a taste and not the full picture. The reader is left with a thirst for more. The book covers for example the four runic systems but does not provide a complete cosmological model of the four systems. The book covers the Listian mystery language but without enough to fully employ it.

The strength of Rune might is lying in the clarity with which the Rune yoga postures are described. A clear map is given to practice runic yoga. Surprisingly simple, runic yoga had an enormous effect on my sense of wholeness and well being.

5.0 out of 5 stars I paid $60 for it - It was worth EVERY penny! 15 Aug. 2003
By Viktoria Whittaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Why, why, why, why doesn't Llewellyn reissue this book!?! I borrowed and read a friend's dog-eared, tattered, well-loved copy and just HAD to have one of my own. It is THE ultimate source book on rune yoga/armanic runes and an excellent overview of the German occult scene in general.
As an Armanic practitioner, I must say that anyone who turns their nose up at the armanic runes or rune yoga for whatever reason is missing out on so much. They may well not be as ancient as the Elder Futhark, but as Thorrson himself pointed out in "Futhark", it is just as valid a magickal system as rune magick based on the Elder Futhark. It does what it was designed to do and it does it very well.
I use it. It works. 'Nuff said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early 20th Century German Runic Stream at its Finest 13 Mar. 2016
By Suba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is important to differentiate between the larger Rune history which is discussed in Thorsson’s Runelore: The Magic, History, and Hidden Codes of the Runestext and what he introduces in the first chapter of Rune Might. What he’s sharing is the early German beliefs regarding Rune history. That’s not the same history modern academics talk about.

Even so, Thorsson does a superb job of laying out the evolutionary history of early 20th century Germanic Rune practices and beliefs. While some might not like Thorsson and the direction he’s gone in his later years, it’s hard to be critical of someone who’s not only introduced the English reader to a completely different Runic Stream, but who has also translated and published many of the blessings that have come from that Stream.

Having read some things from List, Spiesberger, and Kummer I have to say Thorsson’s given the English speaking world an unimaginable gift by introducing these adepts to us. While traditionalist might bemoan this book as not representing ancient Runic practice, the fact is, the Runes are alive and ever evolving. At what point do we say, “This is the end of Runic history. Everything from here on out is heresy?”

Rune Might introduces the reader to
~ List’s Armanen Runes and his unique vowel mantra formulas
~ Marby’s Rune Postures
~ Kummer’s Steads, Rune Dancing, Graal Workings, and Rune Mudras (hand gestures)
~ Jossé’s Rune Astrology and Kabbalah
~ Bienert’s Partner Rune Yoga
~ Spiesberger’s Runic Rituals
~ 16th century Bureus’ Rune Kabbalah
~ Peryt Shou’s Ritual of the Ninth Night
~ and much more…

Is this book worth the cover price? Yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Runic Yoga 12 Dec. 2002
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a book for those who want to work with the runes and not just use them as a divination tool. This is serious work for the serious practioner. This is a good book for those who are not just only into the runes but also into yoga as well. I have this book and i will NEVER give it away.
