Wicca is a fluid and decentralized nature-based pagan faith that connects directly into the Divine, often through ritualistic seasonal practices alone or with others. Because there is no central church doctrine or holy religious text, many Wiccans have different ideas about what “divine” means. This allows a personalized path, encouraging Wicca believers to seek their own spiritual journey. Wiccans honor both a God and Goddess and associated deities, both male and female, in the creation cycles of birth, growth, death, planting, harvesting, dying, and celestial events such as summer and winter solstice in order to find balance with the earth. Magic is a related practice. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
My Uncle George loaned me a book on Spiritualism, which I devoured (I was always a voracious reader), and went back for more. When I’d read all he had, I went to the public library and worked my way along the shelves, from Spiritualism to ghosts, ESP, magic, Witchcraft, and so on.
