Thanks!

There's another channel, but there's a lot of accusations and what not. But for me if you just follow his pagan teachings instead of personal teachings, I think he's an excellent start for Norse pagan beginner's. Try The Wisdom of Odin on YouTube.

(CW: transphobia) *Hwaet!* Did you know? Wisdom of Odin hosted Forrest Munden on his podcast, giving a platform to a well known chauvinist and misogynist who is quoted to have said, "Loki is a trickster, not a tranny," and that he enjoys "studying and observing women." Wisdom of Odin has also expressed his view that the worst thing about the white supremacist organization, Ásatrú Folk Assembly, is that they are "too formal." And to top it all off, Wisdom of Odin also purposefully hosted in-person gatherings during the global COVID-19 pandemic. On a lighter note, Wisdom of Odin has admitted that he is more of a Norse Pagan than a Heathen, so his content may not align with the practices and methodology promoted by this subreddit. We recommend approaching Wisdom of Odin and his content with a critical mind. *I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically.

True, but like I said, his personal views you shouldn't listen, but his teachings of the gods I do recommend.


_oct0ber_

I'm not really sure how you would separate his views from his teachings of the gods given that his views will ultimately shape his teachings.


Allfather_02

Also true, but that's mainly each individual person to decide whether it's worth listening to a topic he's staiting or not.

*Hwaet!* It appears you are new to Heathenry. Please be sure to check out the links in the sidebar, especially [The Longship](http://www.thelongship.net), which is our beginner's guide. *I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically.

No money? You can find the eddas and many sagas online as a free PDF And YouTube has some decent channels for beginners.

The sagas and edda's might be at your local library too! There's a surprising amount of pagan literature at libraries.

The discord has a lot of info. Ocean keltoi is a good YouTuber. I also like aliakai for hellenistic side too. I hear there are a lot of white supremacists on YouTube so take that with a grain of salt.


acuriouspotatoperson

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind!

I would seriously recommend looking at the library for resources. I know you don't want books because of money, but with a topic as dense as a reconstructist/revivalist religion like heathenry getting your feet wet with some literature is unavoidable if you want a solid grasp of the material. This isn't to say that there aren't a lot of great resources like the Longship and some YouTubers like Ocean Keltoi, but it's hard for these resources to dive deeply into a lot of the concepts without some additional support.

Honestly, I can't repeat the bot hard enough. For Heathenry (or even historically-inspired paganism generally) check out https://www.thelongship.net/ it's the bestest and links to further reading, resources etc too when you're done with it
