What is an Emissary?
An emissary is often a person who is sent somewhere in order to act as a representative. The key in that sentence is sent; “emissary” derives from Latin “emissus“, the past participle of the verb emittere, meaning “to send out.” By the early 17th century, it was a commonly seen and heard word.
Here at Awaken the North, our Emissaries are an elite team of individuals who have been specially trained to represent Awaken the North in their local communities. Their duties include: hosting informational booths at the local faires and gatherings like Pagan Pride and Cons, hosting meet-n-greets at local pubs and parks, coordinating special events like blots and sumbles, book clubs, and many other exciting events!
With the world the way it is, some of our Emissaries even host online events, like book readings, and Q&A sessions! Online ceremonies are even a thing!
