Greetings and well met to all who have found this site.
So you are interested in witchcraft? Just exactly what is it anyway? Can Witches point their fingers and make stuff happen? Or is it a wiggle of the nose? Do they ride on brooms?
Wicca is a religion. Although we are not primarily concerned with magic we do embrace it. Wicca is about your place in the Universe. It is about revering nature and the Universe and all of its forces.
It is about learning and growing spiritually. It is about becoming all you can be. It is about learning from life's lessons.
As a religion, Wicca is a way of understanding and interacting with Deity and the Universe. Wicca is a life-affirming path of growth.
Our religion is based on the reverence for Nature and her cycles and respect for the earth and all her creatures. We are taught to see and revere all the forces of the Universe and to see these forces reflected all around us and within each person and thing. You will often hear us speak of "As Above, So Below."
We believe that Deity comes to each of us in a way we can best understand. Each persons path to the Divine is unique and sacred. No one has the right to criticize another's walk with the Divine. For this reason we do not proselytize (actively seek converts).
We celebrate the cycles of the moon and the seasons of the earth. Generally we see the Divine as having both a Mother and Father aspect.
