Our Mission

Awaken the North is an all inclusive group of Heathens whom have come together in solidarity and frith to honor the Norse Pantheon. We accept people from all walks of life regardless of sex, gender, gender identity, ability, nationality, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, race, faith or creed. We embrace our differences and celebrate the uniqueness of others. With a strong Zero Hate tolerance, Awaken the North will not stand for racism, bigotry, or xenophobia of any kind. Our goal is to create a safe space for all, where we may learn, grow, and support each other on our spiritual walks through Heathenry. We are a Heathen organization, dedicated to the worship and veneration of the Old Gods.

Our History

AwakenTheNorth began in January , 2015 as a #hashtag originally, later blooming into an international movement. The community needed support, so Awaken The North set out to provide easy access for Asatruars across North America. From this small beginning, the Council worked tirelessly, to grow #AwakenTheNorth into an international safe haven for -ALL- asatruar.

In May of 2020, Goði Casey “Beast” Clark came on board to revive and revitalize Awaken The North, and return it to it’s former glory, and beyond! Unfortunately, due to multiple issues of dishonesty and proven lack of honour, the original founder who brought Goði Beast on was voted out by a unanimous vote from the Council, and was banned from Awaken the North. At that point, Goði Beast took the reigns, and has worked hard to build a working Council, and get Awaken the North to the organization that Heathens across the world want and need. Today, we are working on furthering the reach of AtN, and becoming the providers of a safe haven for Heathens of ALL forms, regardless of sex, gender, gender identity, ability, nationality, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, race, faith or creed. We embrace our differences and celebrate the uniqueness of others. We are an all inclusive group that will not stand for hate of any kind and will actively stand against it.

Today, Awaken The North is a diverse organization that not only builds and forms small communities but also offers help to those seeking specific guidance, from help finding kindreds in their area, to learning of the Old Ways, to growing in their walks of faith and knowledge of the Gods, and beyond.
