Who We Are:

“We find here a community based upon general unity, mutual self-sacrifice and
self-denial, and the social spirit. A society, in which every individual, from birth to
death, was bound by consideration for his neighbour. The individuals in this
community show in all their doings that they are inspired by one passion: the
welfare and honour of their kin; and none of the temptations of the world can
move them even for a moment to glance aside. They say themselves, that this
passion is love”

~Vilhelm Grønbech

Based out of San Antonio TX, we at Thunor’s Folk Kindred are building a positive and vibrant Heathen community focused on the holistic health and spiritual well-being of our members. We do not discriminate against anyone based on gender, orientation, race or ethnicity. We promote positive growth within our community by celebrating our lives together, teaching as we learn and giving back to our community through projects such as litter clean-up and planting trees together as a group. Among other ancient concepts, Frith is one of our most sacred, therefore our actions are to support and preserve that peace that comes from unity.

Statement of Faith:

We believe in the Gods and Goddesses of our ancestors. We believe that Odin and his brothers Vili and Ve created the first humans, Ask and Embla, gave them the breath of life, 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.
