What is Völva Stav?

About us

Völva Stav (created in 2003 by Kari Tauring) is a system of sacred body geometry and toning in a Norse cultural context. In her teachings, runes, staff rhythm, and voice combine to create physical alignment with Norse cosmology, pathways for metaphysics, and as a tool for healing öorlog and inherited cultural grief. The methodology includes tools for boundary setting, communication, and creating healthy interactions in our personal, community, and spiritual lives.

More about founder Kari Tauring at

The Völva Stav Guild is an educational and cultural healing cooperative of 6 women who are dedicated to the principals and methodologies of Völva Stav and who practice and use them daily in our personal and professional lives.
