Course Description

Wicca is a word that comes with a lot of baggage.  Many people fear Wiccans or Witches, folklore tells us that Witches of any breed should be shunned or feared because they will do bad things to you. This may be the case for a few vindictive individuals and their misguided ideals but it is not the norm. A growing number of people in contemporary society have started looking toward Paganism in general and Wicca specifically as a way to reconnect with nature and religion in a more spiritual and less dogmatic way.  Wicca is a rich religion in this vein that is focused on understanding and living simply within nature, taking a positive approach to life and being a positive example for others.

With that understanding in mind, this course is meant to give you a beginning overview of the Wiccan faith.  We will outline all the major aspects of Wicca that are spread throughout its traditions as well as try to correct some of the misconceptions that are common in the popular understanding of Wicca and Witches. Here you will learn about what drives the faith, what its philosophy is, and we will also illustrate what its practices are from holidays, to concepts of afterlife, to basic rules. While this course isn't meant to be inclusive of the entire religion and its different paths, it will show you the largest groups and provide books and linked resources throughout so you can find more information should you choose to explore this religion more deeply.
