What is Slavic Native Faith?

Slavic Native Faith, also known as Rodnovery, represents an ancient and profound spiritual tradition rooted in the soil of the Slavic lands. It is a sacred bond between the Slavic people and their ancestral gods, embodying the essence of their cultural and metaphysical heritage. This religious movement seeks to revive and reconstruct the pre-Christian spiritual traditions of the Slavic peoples. It encompasses a range of beliefs and practices centered around the gods, goddesses, and spirits of the Slavic pantheon, as well as the ancestral and natural forces of the Slavic homeland.

 

Slavic Native Faith draws its inspiration from the ancient Slavic polytheistic religion that was practiced by the Slavic tribes prior to the Christianization of the region. This indigenous faith was characterised by a deep connection to nature, ancestor worship, and a belief in a pantheon of deities associated with various aspects of life and the natural world. 

The Gods

The Slavic Native Faith is characterised by its polytheistic worldview, emphasising the existence of multiple gods and goddesses. These deities are often associated with natural forces, such as Perun (god of thunder and lightning), Svarog (god of the sun and fire), and Mokosh (goddess of fertility and earth). The faith acknowledges the sacredness of nature and places importance on the interconnectedness of all living things.

Our Ancestors

Ancestor veneration is a central aspect of the Slavic Native Faith. We honor and pay respect to their ancestors, believing that they play an active role in our lives as spiritual guides and protectors. Ancestral rituals, such as setting up altars, making offerings, and celebrating ancestral holidays, are common practices within the faith. Ancestors are seen as a source of wisdom, guidance, and connection to the past.

Traditions

 The Slavic Native Faith incorporates various rituals and folk traditions into its practices. These rituals often involve the use of symbolism, music, dance, and communal gatherings. Celebrations and festivals are held throughout the year to mark important occasions, such as the solstices, equinoxes, and agricultural cycles. Traditional Slavic customs, folklore, and mythological stories also hold significance in the faith, fostering a connection with Slavic cultural heritage.
