Traditions: Celtic
These sections are categorized in 2 parts. The spiritual, or religious knowledge shared by Celtic pagan practioners (on the left), and the academic view of historical information (on the right). Science, anthropology and archeology of today is constantly growing and breaking new ground that supports or even proves the information passed down through spiritual lineage. Because there is much debate between these 2 schools of thought, it is important to research both. Please note - This is NOT Celtic Wicca.

Traditions: Wicca
Wicca is a sect or denomination of the religion of Witchcraft. It was established by Gerald Gardner in the 1950s and is based on a combination of traditions experienced and learned by Gardner. Wicca is a very structured practice of Witchcraft, incorporating initiations into it's advancement or hierarchy of leadership. Many interchange the label Wicca with Witchcraft, but that is not an accurate substitution. There are many traditions within the religion of Witchcraft, Wicca is just one of the many.

Just a little disclaimer, for those who might mis-interpret the information beyond this page.

I am from a Celtic and Cherokee heritage. The articles here are my thoughts, opinions and beliefs that combine those two paths. They are in no way meant to be a representation of 'The Celtic' or 'The Cherokee' traditional beliefs. Rather the information contained here in the General Section and the Pagan's Path Grimoire are a combination of family teachings, Metaphysical Study, Indo-European Shamanistic, Celtic lore, Cherokee philosophy and many years of personal study, experience, practice and personal growth.

I believe information, especially spiritual information should be shared freely. It is up to you to decided what you believe. No one way is right or wrong. Simply take what "feels" right to you, and discard the rest. Examine all information you receive carefully. Do your own research and look for your truth within yourself. That is the true nature of the divine spirit within us all.
