How to Learn Witchcraft

Commonly Ask Questions About Traditional Witchcraft

1. Can anyone interested become a Trad Witch (a Traditional Witch)?

Yes. Everyone can, but as long as:

1) You feel a strong attraction to Nature and have an interest in discovering a dynamic Nature-based spirituality.

2) You have an interest in learning and practicing meditation techniques, and

3) You are prepared to practice magical skills to gain mastery.

When the skills and principles are mastered, you are a Traditional Witch.

2. Is physic sensitivity required to be a Traditional Witch?

No. Of course, it is an asset, however it is simply not necessary. Some of the most powerful witches in history were not psychic. Of course, others were.

3. Don't you need to be born a witch to be a witch?

No. Some have had the fortune to have been born into a Traditional Craft home. However, this only means they grew up surrounded by Craft activity. That alone is not enough. The truth is that while birth into a Traditional Craft household is a plus, it is necessary to have a commitment, to study, and to practice.

4. Can I learn spells only?

Not in our Tradition. In our opinion, good magic only comes through personal and spiritual development. They are intertwined.

5. Does that mean the Traditional Craft is a real religion?

"Religion" implies regimentation and dogma, which we do not have. I think "spirituality" is a better term for us.

Crowds of people are looking for an viable and meaningful alternative to the churches.

The above link (To Find Out More about How to Learn Witchcraft, Click This Link) will take you to a series of 9 or so pages. I suggest you read them all. I am a Traditional witch. I'm of a different tradition or "Trad" than Adrian Eglinton, but his website is excellent.

Yes, anyone can become a witch if you are willing to study and apply yourself. It is fascinating but it is not easy. Meditation has always been centrol to traditional witchcraft discipline, so you must be willing to practice that daily before magic will work for you.

You may wish to scroll up to "If you are interested, go to:" and click on one of the links.

While there are similarities there are also differences between the witchcraft used by different cultures. Even within a culture such as in England today, there are strong differences between regional and even personal practices used in witchcraft.

In Neopaganism today, people seem to separate spirituality or religion, and magic. At this time I'm more interested in the spiritual side, but am very interested in Trad Craft. I know you can't perform magic without learning and mastering the spiritual side of things, but what about spirituality without magic? Thanks.

Edit: Just thought I'd add, I've read all the information on your site and have the mini-course. ;)

So good to find the Trad craft!!! Reading about cultural appropriation raised some very uncomfortable questions for me. I'm so glad to find an alternative to Christianity within my own British/German heritage. It's like coming home. It's given me a new sense of pride and connection with my ancestors. I knew Wicca was not for me, so thank you Adrian for making me aware of another path!
