I took an interest in Wicca as well as Heathenism... [...] As for authors, I was told to start with Gerald Gardner. He keeps popping up in my research, so I assume that's where I should begin?
I am one of the Wiccans mentioned, if you have any specific questions about Wicca. Gerald Gardner is an excellent author to start with if you are interested in seeking Wicca, though it may make a lot less sense if you are working towards other Pagan paths.
Hi, I've been trying to learn more about all different types of religion and Wicca really interests me. I was just wondering if you could tell me how you came to this path (if it's not too much trouble).
No trouble at all. I was an active young Pagan in the local community. When I decided to seek Wicca because I felt called to it, I asked and searched around for local traditional Wiccans and interviewed with them. I verified with other Wiccans if they claimed that they were initiated Wiccans, and spent a few years getting to know several groups to find out which group was the best fit for me, and of course for them to figure out if I would fit in as well. Finally, I was initiated into a coven and began my training as a Priestess. Thanks for asking.
You're welcome! Was it hard to find people to connect with? How did you know where to start?
Yes, it was hard to find people with which to connect. I was lucky enough that the Pagan community in the Seattle area was full of people talking at events and posting online about their study groups when they were taking members. The hard part was finding people that clicked with me.
