The Asatru and Heathenry SIG is a debate and discussion board for exploring beliefs and practices pertaining to Asatru and other traditions that follow the Northern European gods and goddesses. The primary purpose of this SIG is to create a community for modern Norse, Germanic, and/or Anglo-Saxon polytheistic religions which are strongly informed by academic information on these cultures, but do not exclude or dismiss the importance of personal gnosis. Furthermore:

  • This is a reconstruction-based discussion area. Though we embrace Unconfirmed Personal Gnosis (UPG) and non-primary or non-scholastic secondary sources, they are not given the same weight as primary source material or scholastic secondary material. If you are using UPG or questionable modern sources, state that up front in your posts.
  • While we welcome the input of non-Heathens, Heathen religions have a well-established framework and core set of ideas. We are not looking to discuss yet another brand of Wicca.
  • "Debate and discussion board" means that members are not required to agree and that debate can get heated. However, we expect everyone to remember they are debating not just names on a post, but real people with rights and feelings. The object of this board is to learn from the mix of ideas and views, not to demolish all who disagree with you. Members willing to follow The Cauldron's Rules and Regulations are welcome.
  • Finally, the official position of the Asatru and Heathenry SIG is that the Gods call whom they will regardless of national origin, language spoken, race, gender, etc. While you may personally hold different views, this board is not the place to agitate for them. Racial supremacists of any type are not welcome here. Asatru or recon "pissing" contests (e.g. "I'm a real Asatruar/recon and you aren't because I am/do 'X.'") are not welcome here. The Gods may judge who is or is not a true worshiper if they wish, but it is hubris for humans to do it for them.

If you have further questions, feel free to start a thread or send a private message to our SIG leader, Hyacinth Belle.
