About The Event

It’s widely believed that solitary witchcraft and initiatory Wicca are mutually exclusive paths. Yet, most initiated witches also have an active solo practice.

In this class, a longstanding practitioner gives an overview of both routes, covering where they cross over and diverge. Participants learn about the history of Wicca, the emergence of solitary Wicca in the US and how they’ve influenced one another. There will also be discussion of initiation vs self-dedication, hierarchy vs autonomy and finding the right training. By the end, participants will not only have a more accurate understanding of the true differences between the two paths, but foundational guidance for approaching magical groups, and/or walking the solitary path.

The 'Ways Into Witchcraft' series is dedicated to introducing beginners to the main pagan paths, with a particular focus on witchcraft and Wicca. The other events in the series are: Introduction to Pagan Paths (15 April), Where Wicca Came From (3 June), Introduction to Magical Ritual (17 Jun) and Witchcraft’s Big Ideas (15 July). If the event has passed and you'd like to catch up, please contact to access delayed viewing.

Rebecca Beattie has spent over two decades practising witchcraft. A Wiccan priestess of 15 years, she has a rich understanding of the history and traditions underpinning pagan practice. She also has a doctorate in Creative Writing and is a published author. Her books include Wheel of the Year: A Nurturing Guide and the upcoming pagan toolkit for navigating major life changes, The Way Through the Woods. Warm, inclusive and knowledgeable, she's a joy to learn from. Website:
