What is Völva Stav?

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.
