Odinist.net http://odinist.net/forum/index.phpOdinist.net is a forum for Folkish Odinists. We are a Folkish group of Administrators, Moderators and Members. Odinism, also known as Asatru, is the modern expression of the indigenous Folk religion of our Germanic/Northern European ancestors and as such is the natural path for those of Germanic/Northern European descent. We do not believe that Odinism is a universal faith for all and members of this board will respect that view or leave. If you are already a member who no longer wishes to be on the active members list please private message an Admin with a request to have your account deleted and we will do so.

Asatru is a religion rooted in history and relevant for the modern age. Revived after a nearly one-thousand year long sleep, our faith represents an outlook and a way of life whose time has come again.
If truth and honor matter to you, if freedom and responsibility are your friends, Asatru might be for you. If you sense that life as a human being can, and should, be a great and glorious thing, Asatru might be for you. If you love this world and seek to live in it fully, Asatru might be for you.

American Vinland Association http://www.freyasfolk.org/Although "Heathen" is now generally accepted as denoting any non-believer of Judeo-Christian dogma, it originally applied to a specific group of dissenters... those who held to the native religion of Northern Europe. These people had no word for non-believers, since they were tolerant of different faiths, but the early Christian converts needed a name for those who resisted forced conversion. The most vociferous dissenters were those who lived far from the early urban strongholds of ecclesiastical power, out on the heath lands. Thus the heathen, or dweller on the heath, became the maligned rival of a philosophically insecure religio-political power. Proud of our accomplishment in remaining close to nature and our Gods and living a life of honor, we enjoy the name Heathen. Submitted by John T Mainer
Grimoire's Books http://www.grimoiresbooks.com/Alone among the Pagan Book stores of the Lower Mainland, Grimoirs Books has always striven to give Asatru its rightful place, and has been eager to learn our needs, and respond to them. If Asatru is rightly named the faith that comes with homework, Grimoires Books would be not only be our local library, but hosting our tutorials as well.
