Round Table: Frith, Hospitality, and inclusion


Round table discussion about Frith, Hospitality, and Inclusion in Heathenry/Asatru. We will discuss implicit and explicit bias and how that influences inclusion in Heathenry/Asatru. There will be time to discuss how inclusive groups and individuals handle the challenge of when and how to be (ironically) exclusive of hateful or disrespectful individuals in order to provide a safe, peaceful, and diverse group space or organization.  We will address racism, nationalism, sexism, ableism, homophobia and other LGBTQIA+ concerns, and any other form of prejudice in Heathenry/Asatru. We will also bring awareness to the international audience the different uses/definitions of the word Frith and how that relates to Hospitality. This will also be a time to build alliances among inclusive groups and individuals so that we may more strongly support our shared inclusive values together, rather than in isolation. 

Hosted by Amanda Leigh-Hawkins and Robert L. Schreiwer.
