Description

The natural world runs as an important theme through the experience of Heathens. This chapter begins the process of more thoroughly examining the place of nature within Heathen religious thought and practice. Nature religion is a growing reality as Heathens incorporate animism, strands of Green religion, and sacred experiences of nature. I also consider the potential for a bioregional ecological ethic to emerge from within Heathen culture.
