Considering there are quite a few teens floating around TC, i was wondering what age most of you started exploring religions/paths outside the mainstream and how you got started.
What are your thoughts?

Well I have 23 days left till im not longer a "Teen" so I reckon Ill give my experinces

I first started looking into paganism around 16, since the beginning I was only really interested in Asatru. Wicca and the others never had any draw to me. I was unhappy being methodist (raised as) and was looking to explore other paths. I have always been a student of religious paths and ever was into buddhism awhile back in middle school. Anyways I ended up joining the Catholic church at 17 and have to admit I enjoyed it much more than protestantism (It felt more real) but it still wasnt quite what I was looking for so a year later I stopped going to Mass.

Anyways about 18 months ago I started studying more about Asatru, about a year from now I started wearing the hammer, and about 9 months ago I started calling myself Asatruar.

So I am still learning and locing it but havent felt this at peace with my spirituality all my life. Finally I had found a path thats ideals fit mine EXACTLY.

As for relatives and such, a couple friends and my GF of 2.5 years know, my parent just know im not christian anymore (I would probably tell them if it came up, but they havent asked)

To Teach is to Learn, to Learn is to Teach
