Living Heathenry/Asatru
« on: June 04, 2014, 12:52:03 pm »
(I'm not sure how Hyacinth wants to do this in the long run, but I thought for now I'd gather some links together in a new post. )

The purpose of this thread is to share examples of  how heathens are living their religion, heathen content that goes beyond "homework", as well as a more accessible format for information.


Lady of the Labyrinth retelling of myths (youtube).

Runatyr Kindred newsletters. Contains pictures of their rituals, including the Nerthus Procession.


A solitary midwinter's night blot.

"Along the River". A Germanic-Hungarian blog with an interest in Perchta.



Bob Falkenstein, popular Heathen folk musician


Midgard Festival podcast


More to come.

-Had some trouble with LoL link, works now.

 Awesome start! :D:

I'm wondering if this could be a work thread for this project, and then we could have a wikipage for it. The link to the thread could then go in a sticky at the top of the SIG. I think part of what makes the Recommended Resources thread cumbersome is that it's a bit overwhelming as a discussion thread.

I think a wiki could be more organized. For example, maybe sections like:

- Blogs
- Books on the lore / myths (some modern, some classic [i.e. Eddas])
- Books on practice

Maybe books on history / archaeology too that are written for a popular audience?... Maybe this is further down the line.

I'd love it if people who have actually read the blogs / books could write brief book reviews?

Thoughts? Other sections? How to go about putting this in action?

I've poked around the wiki some, so I could definitely help with organizing.

Maybe dividing the book lists into academic non-fiction and "popular" or pagan non-fiction to denote stuff that's not actually written for an academic audience, or differentiating them in some way? Frex the ADF booklists have a "writing level" that indicates whether they're graduate-level or more readable.

Blog links with reviews would be awesome.

I have a shortish list of Blogs I follow and read if that would help

But don't we already have an "academic" list in the Recommended Resources thread? I thought the intent was this would be more popular / modern resources. Does that make sense?

Perhaps there could be another section for "advanced reading"? To come later on?

Great. I'm definitely not a blog reader, so I think others will have to take that aspect on!

 I've created an Amazon book list with titles I've run across that I think might be worth investigating. Thoughts on these choices? Feel free to disagree. Anyone have or willing to buy and read any of these to do a review?

In addition, I currently own and could write reviews for:
    -
Gods and Myths of Northern Europe by H.R. Ellis Davidson
- Norse Mythology: A Guide to Gods, Heroes, Rituals, and Beliefs [/url]by John Lindow
- Viking Age Iceland by Jesse Byock, although I haven't finished reading it
- Taking Up the Runes by Diana Paxson, IF we want to include rune divination
[/LIST]

Thoughts? I feel like I'm jumping in too fast. lol.

I think I must have misread your initial reply then, since you mentioned having things like the Eddas in there, I thought you were talking about combining all the reading lists on the wiki.

I've read the Troth books, Days in Midgard, and The Love of Destiny. All were solid.

I want to go along with what Naomi said and push more accessible video/audio media. The following is the youtube channel of Thorshof, which seems to have some decent beginner's material.

 Ah, I see. Yeah, I think that would be a huuuuge undertaking, so a slightly more specific list with more modern / accessible sources is the order, I think.

Excellent! :)

And I realized after posting those books I have, they are decidedly of an academic bent... I think this little project will push me / inspire me to expand my horizons! That's a good thing!

 I like shrimp.

And thank you for your shrimp-eating service!!! hahaha.

Perfect on the video / audio idea. This is another idea where I feel I have limited experience, so I'm looking forward to it. I don't have time to look at the YouTube link now, but I'll definitely look at it later. We could also do brief reviews of podcasts like Raven Radio, Ravencast, and Spoken Lore (pretty sure those all have audio running around on the 'net somewhere still).
