Hello, I have just began looking into Odinism recently, and I am finding it quite intreging. Does anyone know of any other sites where I can get good information on it? I know the basis of it, but want to get a little more in depth. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you.

Welcome!

For a beginner, there is some useful information here:

I'd just like to thank you guys for being so mind to someone so new to all of this. I'm actually at a really confusing point right now, because I don't feel like I know enough about Odinism to actually commit to it, and I've never been able to find any kind of religion that I actually could connect to and believe in, I always used to think that having a religion would make you weaker instead of stronger. This is starting to change my mind.

Do not think of Odinism as something you must bond to or believe in. Simply take from our lore anything that enriches your life and makes you stronger.

Our gods and goddesses seek friends, but not followers or worshipers.

On faith, refer to this, page 37:

Welcome Zephyr,

You should not have to feel you need to 'commit' to the Gods/desses, all you need to do is accept them as friends and honor them in your words and deeds.
