This book explores the cosmology, values, ethics, and rituals practiced by modern Heathens and is an accessible and yet in-depth guide to this increasingly popular pre-Christian religious tradition of Northern Europe. 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.
A Modern Guide to Heathenry is not denomination-specific and serves as the perfect introduction for pagans who wish to learn more about the Norse deities; those who are new to Heathenry; or those who are simply interested in learning about this unique religion. Those who wish to deepen their own devotional practice will find this book helpful in their work as well.
"Krasskova continues to be one of the most unique and impassioned voices in modern Heathenty. Her devotion to the gods and the ancestors is both palpable and contagious." - Dagulf Loptson, author of Playing with Fire.
"A critical reference for any practitioner or researcher, this volume encapsulates the heart of the practices within Northern Heathen traditions." - H. Helasblom, Northern Tradition Shaman.
