An accessible yet in-depth guide to this increasingly popular pre-Christian religious tradition of Northern Europe Heathenry, is one of the fastest growing polytheistic religious movements in the United States today. This book explores the cosmology, values, ethics, and rituals practiced by modern heathens. In A Modern Guide to Heathenry readers will have the opportunity to explore the sacred stories of the various heathen gods like Odin, Frigga, Freya, and Thor and will be granted a look into the devotional practices of modern votaries. Blóts, the most common devotional rites, are examined in rich detail with examples given for personal use. Additionally, readers are introduced to the concept of wyrd, or fate, so integral to the heathen worldview. Unlike many books on heathenry, this one is not denomination-specific, nor does it seek to overwhelm the reader with unfamiliar Anglo-Saxon or Norse terminology. For Pagans who wish to learn more about the Norse deities or those who are new to heathenry or who are simply interested in learning about this unique religion, A Modern Guide to Heathenry is the perfect introduction. Those who wish to deepen their own devotional practice will find this book helpful in their own work as well.

Wicca: A Modern Practitioner's Guide

(Bonewits,Witchcraft: A Concise Guide, p. 142) While Wicca is a neo-Pagan path,
it is certainly not the only neo-Pagan path. Asatru, Heathenry, Druidry, and others
also qualify as neo-Pagan. Wicca is simply one form of neo-Pagan expression.

Go beyond the basics of witchcraft and take your study of wicca to the next level: everything you need to know to have a deeper understanding of wicca, its teachings, and the meaning behind its rituals and practices. You’ve bought your crystals and cast your basic spells, planted your herb garden and smudged your home—now what? Wicca: A Modern Practitioner’s Guide takes you beyond the trendy witchy basics to the deeper roots the practice, with explanations of the traditions, beliefs, and rituals that make up the wiccan religion. Learn about Solitary Wicca, which teaches you how to practice wicca—whether you work with a coven or practice alone—and goes beyond the “how” of different practices to explore the “why”: for example, when should you create a sacred space rather than cast a circle? How and why do you purify yourself before a ritual? What is grounding, and why is it important for you to ground yourself before doing spellwork? For those who seek them, Wicca has all the answers.

A Heathen's Guide is a work that took five to seven years to make. It is the compendium of experiences that I've had with the Norse gods and spirit work. This book is designed to act as a guide to magic & spirit work, so that it may provide insight to practitioners, new or old, with how to worship and connect to the old gods. It contains instructions of such work and precautions you should take, along with my own opinions of the Heathen community at large and devotionals to the gods I honour.

The Heathen Handbook is a combination of the most important elements of the ancestral folkways of Northern Europe. Regardless of whether it is called Asatru, Odinism, Troth, Forn Sed, or simply Heathenry, the ancient faith of the northlands is based on heritage, kinship, honor, love of the earth, and the belief that we forge our own destiny. Because Heathenry is holistic and touches every aspect of our lives, there is a need for single book that addresses the wide range of subjects that a Heathen needs to know. The Heathen Handbook covers our basic beliefs, history, worldview, ethics, mythology, symbolism, the runes, ritual, and practical ideas about what we can do as individuals and as a community to further our way. There are equal measures of scholarship, practicality, reliance upon tradition, and applications that fit the modern world. The Heathens of Woden's Folk Kindred took information from over a hundred sources as well as many years of living Heathenry to create an effective resource for anyone trying to navigate the tricky path of reconnecting with the ways of our ancestors.In an age of increasing social alienation and cultural decay, Heathenry offers a saner, more fulfilling way to live, and the Heathen Handbook offers a guide to help both novices and experienced Heathens seeking to embrace that life. This fourth edition of the Heathen Handbook contains expanded and revised sections on rituals, as well as much needed corrections and a section addressing women in our faith. This section on women in Heathenry seeks to help bring our faith back into balance with a presentation of influential heathen women from the lore, and a look at the essential and differing roles that women play in our faith.

English translation and original Old Norse text of the Völuspá and Hávamál, the two most important poems of the Elder Edda. Aelfric Avery presents a literal translation made by a heathen for heathens, with the translation beside the original Old Norse text. Avery's translation does not add or take away anything from the original text, nor does it offer the assumptions, interpretations and rationalizations that are found in other translations. The purpose of this translation is for heathens to be able to understand what the original text of these poems actually says and to be able to read the text in Old Norse and know what it means. Further, Old Norse words which do not translate well into Modern English but which are central concepts in heathenry are explained with notes in the Wordhoard. An Old Norse pronunciation guide is also included.

A detailed, researched and inspired book on Norse and Anglo Saxon tradition Paganism. This book is written from a different perspective to other books published on aspects of what is known variously as Asatru, The Northern Tradition and Odinism to present a handbook of accumulated data so that people can read and interpret it for themselves, aided by sometimes conflicting or complementary opinions clearly labelled, enabling the reader to develop and adapt their own theories and practices, rather than have them laid out by someone else. Where possible Pete compares more than one source of information. Trying to subjectively observe a movement from within, whilst being a part of it oneself is a delicate path to tread, but in this book Pete does an admirable job, separating them from the historical data being presented.
