Modern Heathenism

 

Asatru is a religion steeped in tradition, folk lore, and wisdom. It has survived, changed, and been reborn numerous times over the millennia. This has caused many different ideas on how to go about Norse Spirituality. 

 

There are many ways for someone in today's world to practice Asatru. Listed below are only a few ways in which a modern day pagan may choose to practice Asatru, and Norse Spiritualism.
