Working Within: Heathen Spirituality in a Prison Setting

eBook (PDF), 45 Pages
(2 Ratings)
Price: $2.50
Prison is perhaps the most difficult place for spiritual growth and committment. The ancient pre-Christian religious ways of Scandinavia and the Germanic countries—commonly known as Asatru, Odinism, Heathenry, or by still other names—are one of the fastest-growing religions among the US prison population. Unfortunately, this religion is all too often tainted with a foreign ideology of racism and "white supremacy". How can prisoners who are Asatru, Odinist, or Heathen learn about their faith and live it out in daily life, in an authentic way? This book offers a course of study for incarcerated Heathens. It should also be useful for families and friends of inmates, and prison chaplains and administrators, who are interested in learning about Germanic religion as a living tradition today.

    "Good buy!" Let me just say, this was not exactly what I was expecting, but I found it very useful. I was looking for a handbook for working *with* prisoners, this is more for the prisoners themselves. However, this gave me a good idea of what information a prisoner might need to get there hands on. This is a good starting place for them! Not only is this good for prisoners new to Heathenism as well. It includes: Defining heathenism, cleansing your space, meditation, small descriptions of some of the gods, short explanations of the Elder Futhark. All in all I think this a good resource.
