Bishop I am sorry that you had such an experience, but you were smart to recognize it for what it is. It is sad for Selena to have come to be more interested in money than teaching. I did talk to her once about 6 months after Circle Sanctuary was founded and she aspired it to be something wonderful for all pagans. I was doing no more than inquiring into the organization.

I hope they do more than solicit money, but I really don't know.

Blessings on your journey, you will find many pagans will share happily with you.

Marisol

Merry Meet!  I have visited this website many, many times over the years, but have just now decided to actually speak to people.  As you may imagine, I am a solitary practitioner.  I have been part of the Neo-Pagan religion for about 15 years now.  I don't classify myself as Wiccan per se, but there are a great many things about Wicca that I hold true.  The basic Rede, for example, is something I believe everyone should adhere to as best they can no matter what religion they choose to be.  I don't exactly like the idea of classifying myself as one specific thing, but if I had to narrow it down, I would refer to myself as a Gray Witch.  I love to learn more about the Craft because it interests me greatly and, of course, you can never obtain too much knowledge.  There is so much to learn and no matter how much you know, you can always find new information.  I will admit that lately I have not had as much time to do what I would like to do as I would like.  My new job, however, enables me to study in my free time, so at least I have that.  Making the time in my life outside of work is where I have the problem.  I decided to speak out now because I am hoping that speaking to people will give me the boost I need to make myself make time to practice my religion in the way I want to.  Life can be so busy and hectic, and I can nothing but benefit from meditation and communing with the Lady and Lord.  I hope to get to know all of you better, and I wish you love and light.  Merry Part, tiefer

Greetings Adriana,

Welcome to TCC. There's a vast amount of useful information, hidden away in the various threads on the Forum. Start by reading the "Sticky" threads, especially "For the beginning solitary", and go on from there; but also check out any other threads that seem interesting.

You'll find that there are people here with a wide variety of different beliefs, all of which come under the general category of Paganism; you'll also find that, quite often, we strongly disagree with each other! This is as it should be, I think. It's often been said that, if you ask a dozen Witches - or better still, thirteen, the number of Witches in a traditional coven - to define Witchcraft, you'll get at least ten different answers. And if you ask some of us, today, we'll probably give you a different answer than we would have a year ago - or even a week ago!. This means that there's no fixed set of beliefs that we all accept, and we're all still learning, even after 20, 30 or 40 years of study and practise.

And that's the key; study, study and study some more, but also practise, practise, practise. Put your studies into action, keep a notebook (which will probably eventually develop into a genuine Book of Shadows) and, as your study and practise matures, keep referring back to it.

Many of us here are Solitaries; some because we can't find a coven locally, but some of us because we prefer a solitary practise. It's good to find other people with similar interests, but if that's not possible where you are, don't let that stop you.

Blessed Be, and good luck,

Alchymist.
