A lot of you have been asking for a beginners class in Wicca. Well, here it is.
This is a self-paced personal study in Wicca, especially designed for beginners who are studying and practicing by themselves.
This study is based on Scott Cunninghams Wicca: A Guide For The Solitary Practitioner. You can try to follow along without the book, but we dont recommend that. You can order a copy of the book from Amazon.com (link provided below) or any other on-line store, but we suggest that you purchase it from a local pagan or New Age store. It will cost less locally and by supporting a local store you can also meet pagans and witches in your area.
Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (Llewellyns Practical Magick Series); by Scott Cunningham; Llewellyn Publications; Nov 1990; ISBN 0875421180; paperback; 218 pages; $7.96.
This is our first experiment with an on-line class, so please bear with us while we make mistakes.
Each on-line lesson is associated with a chapter in the book. We recommend that you read each chapter before going to the on-line lesson, although you may want to take a look at the general notes and study questions before reading the chapter.
general notes: Each lesson will open with general notes.
study questions: These are questions that we think you should be able to answer after reading the chapter. Full answers to some questions may require additional research. You are invited to suggest additional study questions or to suggest better ways to word the existing study questions.
Nobody is required to send in their answers. This is entirely self-paced. But those who do send in their answers may be able to get feedback from other students around the world.
Some questions will ask about your own personal beliefs. There is no right or wrong answer to belief questions. Whether you share the answer with others or keep it to yourself, the goal is to find your own personal answer, an answer that individually fits the unique you.
Some questions will require searching elsewhere (other than Scott Cunninghams Wicca A Guide For The Solitary Practitioner). The same copyright and plagarism rules that apply in other class work applies here.
You may paraphrase (put into your own words) from books, magazine articles, web sites, etc., but must provide the source (book title and author, web site URL, etc.).
You may make short quotations, using the exact wording of a phrase, sentence, paragraph, or verse of a larger work, but must provide the source (book title and author, web site URL, etc.).
If you find information in at least two unrelated sources, you may consider it common knowledge and freely put it into your own words. It is polite, but not required, to provide the best quality source for common knowledge.
You may freely use direct quotations of ancient materials (or anything more than a couple of centuries old). It is polite, but not required, to provide the best quality source for ancient materials. Remember that modern translations of ancient materials may still be in copyright, in which case the quotations must be short and attributed.
student answers: These are answers sent in by you and your fellow students. We encourage a free and open discussion, in which you and your fellow students can comment on each others answers and help each other out.
student questions: These are questions sent in by you and your fellow students. If you are confused or uncertain about something, go ahead and ask your fellow students.
student comments: This is a section where you can and your fellow students can make comments about anything related to the chapter being studied.
Have fun and learn a lot.
Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (Llewellyns Practical Magick Series); by Scott Cunningham; Llewellyn Publications; Nov 1990; ISBN 0875421180; paperback; 218 pages; $7.96; review: Scott Cunningham simplifies and combines many witchcraft traditions, which doesnt make purists of any particular tradition happy, but makes things much easier to understand for beginners. This book is a great one for beginners to start out with.
