  • Non-Wiccan Witch Roll Call

    It's easy to find Wiccan and Wiccan-derived witches on the internet and on MysticWicks, but harder to find those who practice non-Wiccan witchcraft, whether as part of an established tradition or as a solitary.

    So -- any non-Wiccan witches here on MysticWicks? Tell us what tradition you are part of (if any) and what your variety of witchcraft is about! Is your form of witchcraft a religion or is it a practice that might or might not be done within your religious practice?

    Is your witchcraft descended from Robert Cochrane (1734 or Clan of Tubal Cain, or perhaps another one?) Are you a member of the Cultus Sabbati? Do you base your work on Michael Ford's books? Is your witchcraft one that has been handed down within your family line? Is your witchcraft based on magickal practices or magickal religions from non-English cultures?

    Tell us more!

    I practice stregoneria, which is not the same as Raven Grimassi's Stregheria, and conjure.

      I practice my own creation. Partially informed by Wicca, partially based in personal gnosis, and partially based on older folklore.
      Each man performs his service to the Holy according to what he is, not according to what he is not; after all, the sacrifice must not surpass the proper measure of the worshiper. - Iamblichus

        This would be it! Although I'm VERY new to this. Prior, I was just solitary.

          I practice a combination of healing techniques and social influences I learnt at martial arts training, and a reincarnation based eclectic religion holding bits of Kemetic and Thelemite ideas.

            I practice a personal evolutionary form of Witchcraft focused on the Divine as panentheistic and archetypal, with influences from Buddhism, Taoism, LaVeyan Satanism, Kemeticism, and Hellenism. More recently I've included bits I'm studying from Feri Witchcraft, Shamanism, and Druidry.

              Something of my own creation, certainly, mostly kitchen and hedgewitchery, though.

                I dont consider myself anything or practice anything.

                Unless you count new years when i go to a buddhist temple with my parents for prayers and offerings for a good new year.

                Oh and when someone gets married or dies we do the christian thing for half of the family and the buddhist tradition for the other half.

                      I'm a Hedgewitch influenced by Cochrane's work, though I'm not and don't aspire to be a member of the traditions descended from him. I really don't know how I'd describe my path, and I'm not that comfortable with the thought of doing so... I guess you could say I walk into dreams wide awake. I worship the Gods that live in the Land, behind it, under it, beyond it. Beyond that I cannot say...

                      Cheers,

                        I practice my own flavour of witchcraft...it's based upon wicca with influences from the research i've done on traditional witchcraft. I'm still researching and finding my current path, so it may change...i expect it to actually as i still feel i haven't exactly found what i'm looking for...

                          I practice from my own mixed bag of beliefs. However my fondation comes from my mother and the rest of my family. I molded out practices from the fondation that was taught to me by my mother and father. Who both taught me something different.

                          I have gone to look for myself
                          If I should come back before I return
                          please sit me down
                          and tell me to wait for myself.

                            I voted "other". I started off as a Wiccan, but felt drawn to break away from the structure of the Wiccan path. Now I dance to my own drummer, and let my ritual work take me where my spirit leads. If that means quiet meditation, I'll do that. If it means dancing around my altar, why not? I draw from many cultures and paths, but I would, by no means, consider myself Wiccan anymore.

                              I don't practise witchcraft, but magic. It is not influenced by Wicca at all.
