    Hello From Northern California

    Hello, all!

    My name is Steve McNallen, and I have just joined Skadi Forum.

    I am here because of my long (forty years) interest in Germanic religion, and my concern for the future of Germanic people worldwide.

    Ethnically, I am a mixture of German, Irish, English, and Scottish.

    A little background - I founded a national Asatru organization in 1972 here in the United States, and currently head the Asatru Folk Assembly. This is my life's passion.

    In other areas of my life - I am a former Army officer and NCO and a teacher of mathematics and science. I've traveled widely in Europe, Africa and parts of Asia. For a few years, I was a freelance writer touring hot spots around the world. Currently, I work in a correctional facility for juveniles.

    I am married to a wonderful Irish-German woman and we have two granddaughters.

    I am interested in fitness and in various disciplines of spiritual evolution.

    Well, there it is - the quick picture. I look forward to interacting with many of you in the days to come. It will take me a while to learn how all this works, so please be patient with me!

    Respectfully,

    Steve McNallen

    Hello Steve McNallen, I have seen some of your videos on youtube and I was reading on the åsatro folk assembly website some time ago. I noticed how you are able to pronounce Odin correctly Heathendom seems to be much bigger over there than here in Skandinavia. But much of our culture has luckikly still kept alot of heathen traditions.

    I hope you will like our forum.

    A warm welcome from my side, Stephen McNallen! I´ve read a few bits about your organisation in the past and hope I´ll learn more about it soon. I´m an (unorganisized) Asatruar as well.

    Hope you like it! If you´ve any questions you can ask anyone of the staff.

    Hello. I tried contacting you in the past about working together on an Asatru book for the good of all and talking through your wife there was no interest yet in your own books you speak of this great white brotherhood that we are all in- it seemed rather contradictory that you arougantly shove off people who want to work together and then say we are all united with spiritual bonds.

    I've read a lot of your work. Your pamphlet on metagenetics is very insightful and I included that on my reading list on my book. Some of the other books with rituals and such seemed a little too influenced by wicca and "high" magick (kabbala) i.e. visualizing white light over your head and all that I don't know how productive such things are. As well I found the books to be a poor value- high in price and usually very short, as well usually involving pages printed up and self bound with materials you can buy at wal-mart (or else just stapled together). I understand self publishing is expensive but typically it seemed a little too profit driven as well often involving a little too much self promotion and ego.

    At any rate it will be interesting having you in the discussions. There is also a guy, or at least his wife, floating around here called Mark Puryear who wrote "The Nature of Asatru" and has been working on various other books to rebuild the tradition. Yet again they almost never post anything exept for when it comes time to promote a new book. I really think the folk should come first above self interests which I haven't seen in a lot of Asatruar authors. Working together is a mark of civility. One must consider their children share the same destiny as the rest of their folk. We all should thusly feel that our communities are extensions of ourself.
