    The Moonlit Path: Discussions on Pathways and Traditions

    Correllian Nativist Tradition It never ceases to surprise me the number of times I am approached about learning opportunities for newcomers to Wicca and Paganism.  Most times the same advice is given to those starting out on a new path: read and study more.  The question at that point becomes what to read and how much more to study? Often learning with an established tradition is not immediately possible for a newcomer.  So they muddle through a few books and then the individual often becomes discouraged.  However, there is a tradition that takes its commitment to outreach and teaching to new levels making learning accessible to everyone.  I’m pleased to…

    Along Came a Spider…A Meditation

    Driving is a cathartic process for me.  My mind is able to wander since my body is otherwise occupied with the driving process.  It’s just about the only time I hit the Theta state.  So, some of my best thinking is done in the car and I’ve taken to carrying a tape recorder for those moments of epiphany. One of those moments, however, came quite unexpectedly.  I was pondering what to write my meditation on for this month and quite literally it dropped into my lap.  Sunlight flickered off a single thread of spider silk right in my line of vision, as a very sizable spider dropped onto my steering…

    The Moonlit Path: A Discussion on Pathways and Traditions

    North American Eclectic Wicca As practioners, or those interested in alternative spiritual paths, we are often left on our own to learn and discover the options available to us.  As with any journey it begins with a willingness to take the first step.  It’s my hope that this article will help some of you start your own journeys and give you an idea of the options available to you. When I started my own path over 11 years ago I had no idea what was out there.  I didn’t realize that there were so many different Traditions and Paths. I will cover both the well known and those that are…
