Embracing Heathenry, by Larisa Hunter

Reviewed by Erin Lale

In the first part of this book, author Larisa Hunter, formerly known as Mist, tells the story of how she converted from her birth religion as a Jehovah’s Witness and embraced heathenry.

Hunter also gives advice about becoming a heathen, interacting with the gods, acquiring a patron god, and joining a kindred. The section about kindred oaths made me re-examine an uncomfortable time from my youth and I came to a greatly relieved new understanding.
