Alternative Northern Paths


Alternative Northern Paths

Welcome, this is a place to discuss all aspects of Norse, Germanic, Slavic or other northern faiths and practices, including Seid, Shamanism, or any other practice.

Latest Activity: Jan 30's premier Northern Tradition Pagan / Shaman / Mystic / Occult group is dedicated to any who wish to learn about more than the common Norse / Germanic / Saxon Heathen information. We accept all who come with open minds and curiosity.

We wish to embody the essence of Hospitality and welcome those from all ways.

Wesaþ Ge Hale,
Your Humble Hosts: Kane (American/ Iron Woods Wizard) and Lykathea (Eclectic Odian Occultist)

What is the Northern Tradition?

I like to think that it is not a reconstruction, but a continuance of the practices of the Nordic, Celtic, Pictish, Scottish, Germanic, Slavic, Ainu and other Northern Arctic and sub arctic faiths and practices. Reconstruction is a part, but only so that we may know where to continue and forge ahead with the development of our religions. We choose to listen to the gods more and listen less from what books and history say. We do not hold biases from the literature of the past as it is nearly impossible to know if there was historical tampering or trespasses made by christian colonization of those lands. First hand knowledge is trusted more, and what is spoken by those who never stopped is always worth more than the second hand accounts.

Thank you for the Invitation. I am looking forward to discuss the Lore in a more generous way! I bring Legends from the Alpines and basic to medium advanced Rune Lore.
