How can I encourage without pushing?
He and I approach things very differently. He's going to take this deep sipritual emotion and pick it apart and prise all the ends free and undo every knot until every thread is laid out before him in an easy-to-follow format and then he might even arrange them alphabetically by length and color. If I felt something that strong, I'd jump in with both feet. I'd read every book I could get my hands on, follow every link, talk to every elder, really get in there and get my hands dirty. He's very much the introvert of the couple though. So how do I help him through without pushing him along and scaring him away.

I don't know, but if he's looking to learn more about it, the book Essential Asatru by Diane Paxton (I believe) is a really good place to start.
