Go Heathen!

Welcome to the Houston Area Asatrú Info Board

A New Kindred is forming now in Houston.

Non-partisan, non-racist, non-exclusive
it SUCKS to define yourself by what you are NOT.
we ARE people who wish to honor the gods, and our ancient traditions
with a family-like atmosphere where you can come to learn, participate,
or just be with like-minded folks for the blessings.
No pressure and no judgement

Stand by for details, more info in December 2018


Why should you go heathen? - Because Heathens are the most honest, honorable, noble, hard-working, law-abiding, and friendly people to have ever lived!   
No Really. That's truely my opinion. Of course, opinions vary.. but that's mine.


Asatru or Heathenry is the religion of the native Northern European peoples. 

The peoples living in Scandinavian/Nordic/Germanic countries today do not generally view these beliefs as a religion. More like a cultural identity/mythos. They are for the most part Christian in these countries. With a growing segment of Islamic refugees, of course.

But some people, whether European or American, or others follow the historical gods of our folk, the religion and traditions evolved along with our people and feel very natural to us.  Our religion is one that requires no faith whatsoever.  Faith is the belief in something that cannot be proven.  That sounds like insanity to us! 

Our traditions have been around since before recorded history and our gods are alive and present in our lives.  They inspire us to be better people, to act with courage and honor, living true to our word and loyal to our kin and friends. 

We tell all new people interested in learning more about Asatru that doubts and questions are normal and healthy for any thinking adult. 


There are a few ways to decide if you are really a Heathen, deep down, but just never knew it.

  • Do you feel that keeping your word is of utmost importance, no matter what?

  • Do you feel that your actions matter more than your thoughts?

  • Do you believe it's important to offer drinks, food, and lodging to your good friends,
    but when you are the guest you feel that it's important for you to contribute something to your host?

  • Do you feel that acting with courage of your convictions is the most admirable (honorable) way to live?

  • Do you feel that it is your right and duty to protect the members of your friends or family that are less able to defend themselves (kids or elderly, especially)?

If you answered YES to these questions...  You might be a Heathen!  Heathenry is definitely not for everyone, it is only for those not afraid of truth; those that have the patience for learning and research; those that have the courage to follow their convictions; those that wish to grow spiritually and mentally into a person that the gods would be proud to associate with.  If you are content to follow the herd, to accept what you are told without question, to trust in others to protect your rights, then you need not look any further.
