Well, looks like I'm the only out-of-the-closet Wiccan on the boards.  I sorta expected more from a Celtic music site...I mean, many of the Celtic musicians are some form of New Age themselves.  I just think that Wicca provides a more, I fumbled for the wording here, understanding? view of the world.  Wiccans don't see the need to take up arms against heathens.  We don't get worked up about our religion.  We are sometimes annoyed at the things self-proclaimed christians do in the name of their God (usually, killing someone who doesn't believe.)  I'm not accusing anyone here of any untoward conduct, but christianity, particularly catholicism, has a poor track record when it comes to dealing with other cultures.  I would like to stress that Wiccans do NOT curse, hex, or otherwise bring harm to people.  We believe that whatever you send out will be returned threefold.  If you harm someone, you can expect something three times as bad to happen to you.  There are some fairly strict (self-enforced) rules governing what is and is not permissible. 

Well, this is going on far too long.  If anyone's interested in hearing more, feel free to ask, either in the forum, PM, or email me.

NAH YE not be alone friend, BLESSED BE!

Let me ..."splain Lucy..."

I was raised in the Catholic Church by a priest wannabe mother that is now an Episcopel ( or however you spell it ) minister.
I found the native american religion ( Wicca being the closest answer I can give) that holds beliefs in Wicca, Shamanism, and Naturalism.

I associate with Wiccans and Native Americans and practice a blend of all.

Now are ye totally cornfused???

Ahhh, we have much in common! I was raised Catholic, and some other various X-ian religions. Now, I am a blend of various other pagan religions, but I consider myself Wiccan. I have started to study under my father-in-law (Waya Gadoga - Standing Wolf) in Cherokee Spirituality. It has become one of the most liberating experiances in my life.

Could you explain why the 'X'. This is quite disrespectful to all Christians.

I mean no disrespect. X in Greek is "Chi" which is used for Christ. I went to Catholic schools, and we used it as an abbreviation.

I didn't think that you did mean disrespect. This whole forum and the members seem like a very respectful group. I was just more curious than anything because I have seen it a lot. Very interesting explanation!

Glad to have helped clear it up. The common beliefs is "talking the Christ out of Christian, or Christmas", and I guess some people may actually be doing that, but not me.

I myself, am also in that Pagan mix Catagory. I have taken various practices and philosophies and use what works for me. Druidism is a hard one to nail down because so little is actually known. There are some practices that have survived the test of time. I normally find that anthropolgu/Archeology studies seem to be the least biased. ( for either side of the coin) druidism and Native American Shamanism share many similarities....and that is where my practice lies....

Along with my magick/lore studies......

The Greek symbol for Christ is the "chi rho" ; looks like a lower case cursive p with the X intertwined with it.

ASk Standing Wolf if he knows of Rain Crow, chief of the Shawnee. He was a great teacher and friend who has gone to be with the grandfathers. He was my teacher.

Not sure of what you mean here... if you mean a Shaman then yes, if you mean a shirt wearer, then yes, if you mean an elder who's visions were held as gospel by the tribe , yes.

Terminologies differ betwen the tribes.
