Ice and Fire Stav Membership is open to anyone with a serious interest in Stav.

Traditionally Stav was passed on through the family. When Stav was first taught in the UK most instruction took place in the context of martial arts training. In recent years it has been clear that some form of distance learning programme was needed. Online video, email, and facilities such as zoom are methods of communication which were unavailable twenty years ago. Today, these technologies have opened up new possiblities for teaching. However, there is still a benefit in receiving and studying printed materials, and greater value still in face to face instruction. In Ice and Fire Stav we teach using a combination of the latest technology, combined with traditional print, and opportunities for attending live seminars.

Ice and Fire Stav members receive the following benefits:

The Ice and Fire Stav Foundation Training Programme, which is delivered as twenty four modules sent in the post over a period of twenty four months. This programme provides a foundation in the practice of Stav which includes:

  • Building up a practice of performing the stances daily which is covered in the first four modules.
  • These first sections will also familiarise you with the history of Stav from myth, to legend, to history, and up to the present day.
  • You will also learn about the key sources of runic knowledge including the Volspa, Rigsthula, and the Havamal.
  • There is also an introduction to the basic concepts of Stav such as the idea of Orlog and the five principles of Stav.
  • The next sixteen modules each go deeply into each rune, including meanings and associations, rune rhymes, the Karl Galdre Stance, animal and staff exercise, mythology and the tree and animal associations.
  • The last four modules will consider the key bind runes, making and using runes, and suggesting ways of furthering your practice.
  • Each module is supported by relevant online video material which show the stances and exercises
  • Zoom seminar each month All members are welcome to join a forty minute live seminar via Zoom once a month. This is an opportunity for further teaching, discussion, and meeting other members of Ice and Fire Stav.
