PS.net'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.

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.
