JUNGLE SVONNI

I was concieved on the mountain of Gaivarri north of the arctic circle in Sapmi where the border between Norway and Sweden runs over the top of the mountain.

My first memory in life was that I knew my destiny was to become a Shaman, like many of my anscestors in my lineage before me.
My grandfather was one of the last traditional healers and when he died when I was twelve years old, I was faced with a problem.There where no one left around to teach me.

So in my mid twentys I went to the last place on earth that I ever wanted to go, the Amazon. There I spent 7 years learning from the natives my own culture, that of no one still living in the north today could remember.

There I met my ancestors and became a Shaman, the Sami way.

ROBIN YOUNGBLOOD

I believe that the only way to co-create harmony and build strong, healthy communities in these times, is to re-educate ourselves in the natural rhythms of our Earth Mother through ritual and ceremony.

It is my hope to share what I have been taught in ways that will help each of us to remember our innate connection to each other, Mother Earth, and All That Is.

He can sense the energies around people. He listens to their stories, verbal or nonverbal... He listens and speaks with his heart, soul and mind. Therefore it is not a common conversation. It is intense, energy changing and sometimes a needed wake up call. He has a clear and unique way of understanding situations. Yet always the answer is given with compassion , integrity and love… The runes serve as an important tool during these conversations…

Ragnar gives teachings about runes and energy in Norway and France and will share his knowledge this time during Kiva Netherlands.
