Asatru and Heathen Friends and Communities

Both online and in person, having friends, groups, kindreds, forums, communities, and events specific to Asatru and Heathenry can be important for modern heathens. It's also great to meet up with other heathens at pagan events such as Pagan Pride Day, festivals, events sponsored by bookstores, etc., and at non-religious events that have local pagan or heathen groups participating such as local renfaires, heritage days, etc.

Some events and groups have returned to in-person gatherings even though the pandemic is not over. Some groups, events, and individuals have decided to stick with online participation, which opens up events to international, disabled, people who can't take the entire time off work, and others besides those avoiding communicable diseases. Some groups and events do online only or online plus in-person options. 

Here are some resources for finding other heathens:

In my forum, the Asatru Facebook Forum, we're doing a Friend Finder thread where people can find online and local friends and local groups and events. People commenting on the thread include this information in their posts: "1. a short intro. 2. Do you want Facebook friends? Y/N 3. Do you want local friends? Y/N If you want local friends, include a location (a city or region.) 4. If you have a local group, event, etc. post that here with the location and contact info."
