Who We Are
We are a recognized (501c3) Heathen Kindred serving the central Texas region. Thunor’s Folk kindred is an apolitical religious organization focused on the health and and holistic wellness of our growing central Texas community. We hope to build and maintain healthy relationships with others who share in our beliefs and provide spiritual guidance where we can.
We do not discriminate against anyone based on gender, race or ethnicity, we promote positive growth in our community by celebrating life with our closest family and friends and invite you to share in that peace that we call Frith.
Statement of Faith
We believe in the Gods and Goddesses of our ancestors. We believe that Hœnir, Lóðurr and Odin discovered Ask and Embla, shapeless and lifeless and then gave them breath, a Godly hue and a divine spirit, and we believe that we are descended from them and therefore possess those same gifts.
We believe in the spirits that inhabit all things on earth and that they are here to guide us on the journey we call life. We believe that we can commune with and walk among these spirits through trance and meditation, seek their wisdom and ask for their blessings by making offerings to them.
We believe in the sanctity of all life and treat all living things as sacred.
We believe in the goodness in all people and work to live in peace and harmony with others. We call this state Frith.
We believe that we are accountable to ourselves, our peers and our ancestors so good conduct is expected amongst the men and women of our community.
We believe that we are the sum of our words and deeds. Our present reality is a direct consequence of decisions made by us or by someone close enough to effect us in the past and what we decide to do with our circumstances today becomes our future. We call these concepts Wyrd and Orlog and we believe they are as inescapable as fate itself.
We believe that our souls are complex and made up of several distinct energies, some of which will return to the earth upon death and become one of the many spirits inhabiting the earth, another will pass on to our descendants as inherited qualities or traits and another part of our essence will be reunited with our ancestors on the spirit plane that we call Hel.
We at Thunor’s Folk Kindred hereby declare that we do not condone acts of violence, hatred or discrimination of any kind, carried out in the name of our religion, and will not associate with those who do. We view those who condone these acts as outlaws on the fringe, radicalized by their own fears and therefore, not part of our community. We will not grant the tacit approval of silence in the name of family, kinship, or community to those who would use our traditions to justify prejudice on the basis of race, nationality, orientation, or gender identity.
We serve the Greater San Antonio and central Texas region with a variety of spiritual services and ritual work.
