We started this group so that we can teach and connect with others who are interested in many “Non Traditional or Pagan” belief systems and to explore all of it's facets particularly from a cross-cultural perspective. Studying & using methods of healing and knowledge that originate from Indigenous societies which works closely with the Earth and Spirits who work closely with the practitioner to help his/her community and the Earth. We also explore healing and metaphysics, including consciousness, quantum physics, topics such as fate vs destiny, divination, the use of nature's gifts like herbs, essential oils and crystals for healing purposes. Whether you are new to Paganism or interested in deepening your practice, you'll find many folks here to support your journey.
Some examples of Traditions Practiced by our Members:
Wiccan celebrations encompass both the cycles of the Moon, known as Esbats and commonly associated with the Goddess (female deity), and the cycles of the Sun, seasonally based festivals known as Sabbats and commonly associated with the Horned God (male deity). An unattributed statement known as the Wiccan Rede is a popular expression of Wiccan morality, although it is not universally accepted by Wiccans. Wicca often involves the ritual practice of magic, though it is not always necessary.
Contemporary forms of witchcraft containing a broad movement of aligned magico-religious groups who reject any relation to Gardnerianism and the wider Wiccan movement, claiming older, more "traditional" roots. Aesthetically rooted in European folklore, the Traditional Craft contains within its ranks a rich and varied array of occult groups, from those who follow a contemporary Pagan path or any non-Gardnerian, non-Alexandrian, non-Wiccan or pre-modern form of the Craft, especially if it has been inspired by historical forms of witchcraft and folk magic. Including ritual magic, spellcraft and devotional mysticism. Some forms of traditional witchcraft are the Feri Tradition, Cochrane's Craft and the Sabbatic craft.
Italian religion of witchcraft, worshipping the Goddess Diana, her brother Dianus/Lucifer, and their daughter Aradia. They do not see Lucifer as the evil Satan that Christians see, but a benevolent god of the Sun and Moon.
The ritual format of contemporary Stregheria is roughly similar to that of other Neopagan witchcraft religions such as Wicca. The pentagram is the most common symbol of religious identity. Most followers celebrate a series of eight festivals equivalent to the Wiccan Wheel of the Year, though others follow the ancient Roman festivals. An emphasis is placed on ancestor worship.
