ATWATER P M H   The Magical Language of Runes VG sunned spine. $15 B/B Bear & Co 1990 soft cover, 188pp. "Anyone interested in runes, in external approaches to unlocking inner guidance, in exploring the interconnectedness between symbology and intuition, or in developing their own psychic ability, will find P.M.H. Atwater's The Magical Language of Runes must reading! This book examines everything from the potential uses of runes and the proper precautions and procedures for utilizing psychic guidance, to a dozen sample casts and approaches to their interpretation. Those familiar with runes, as well as the complete novice, will find Atwater's material an informative step-by-step guidebook and reference manual" Kevin Todeschi, manager of educational development, Association for Research and Enlightenment. 'P.M.H. Atwater does a splendid job of placing runes in their proper historical-spiritual context and of emphasizing that the powers lie not in the stones but in our own inner wisdom' Brad Steiger, author of Exploring the Power Within, Discover Your Past Lives, and Gods of Aquarius. "This work should be of interest to all who feel themselves drawn to the power of the runes, the mysteries of the self and the world. Ancient Teutonic myth relates that the God Odin 'took up; or discovered, the runes in an initiatory paradigm which involved self-sacrifice and a near-death experience. P.M.H. Atwater's own awakening to mysterious powers under similar near-death conditions makes me stop and listen to what the work conveys. This is destined to become a classic of the new free-form, non-tradifionalist, runic school' Edred Thorsson, Yrmin-Drighten of the Rune-Gild, author of Futhark, Runelore, and At the Well of the Wyrd.
