This is a link to a pretty reliable source of Slav myth and craft. It is difficult to find modern info on Slavic history and ancient path without Neo-Nazi ideologies mixed in the writing. I hope this will be a good start for those interested!

To those that were discussing posting about Eastern European craft in the seekers forum, I am still writing articles to post in the public forum, but this should be quite a bit to digest while I get those going :)

Looks like the website is no longer there.  While doing a search I did come across this link, it might be helpful to you;  https://www.reddit.c...st_for_english/

 

I can't vouch for the quality of the linked information but it looks like a pretty extensive list so it may have some good stuff in there.  :)

I'm always looking for more Slavic information.

Interested in the history of this, what about nordic vs. slavic craft?  Is there a difference?\

Come to think of it I am not even sure if i am either nordic or slavic...

There is a difference although there are overlaps as well.
Such as Perun and Veles and their struggle, it's not unlike the struggles present with Loki and Thor. Especially as Perun is a thunder god and Veles is primarily an underworld god (he has agricultural associations, animals, forests etc. like most older underworld deities) and also trickery.
Part of the issue is that most of the specifics of European traditions are fragmented now, but they are different.

It's also quite alright to be interested in them even if you have no known ancestry.
Sometimes you can stumble upon links that make sense later, ancestry wise.
But depending on where you are in your path it's always a solid idea to see if you have any guides around that can help steer you in a direction.
While there is some reconstructionism happening with Slavic faiths, you will likely find more (as we have more records for them as well) for Nordic faiths.

While it isn't necessary to be reconstructionist by any means, both Heathenism and Astaru are fairly popular right now so there are more resources available if you're searching in that direction.

Thanks for your reply bats,

I agree there is no problem with choosing any path that feels right regardless of ancestry, as long as you walk that path with authenticity.

Rodnovery is a term I have come across a few times while researching and your link discusses just that!

My grandpa is 95 years old and is the only family member with knowledge of our ancestry. I haven' spoke with him for years but I am getting an itch to get in touch with him and see if he can help me find out what I want to know.

Respect

I did the National Geographic DNA test and I found out that I am 42% Scandanavian, only 18% British and the rest European, from the North to the South.
Surprise! Now I know why I like Vikings!
