Default Wicca 101 course outline

The Wicca 101 course is intended to give a general overview of the religion of Wicca. It's meant for those who are interested in the topic regardless whether they want to practice Wicca as their own spiritual path or are just exploring.

There is no mandatory textbook for this course. I'll suggest books that might interest those who want to learn more, and will provide documents and links to media files (audio and video) to make the material interesting.

Here is the list of topics that I plan to cover.

Week 1: Introduction
  • What Is Wicca
  • Brief History
  • Wicca Compared with Other Religions

Week 2: Core Principles & Beliefs
  • Principles of Wiccan Belief
  • Wiccan Rede
  • Orthodoxy and Orthopraxy
  • Views of the Divine

Week 3: Ethics
  • Wiccan Rede concept and history
  • Ardanes
  • Autonomy and Group Structure

Week 4: Texts
  • Book of Shadows
  • Charge of the Goddess
  • Other traditional chants (eko eko azarak, darksome night, dryghten prayer, etc.)
  • Suggested books

Week 5: Ritual Practice
  • Circle Casting
  • Raising Power
  • Great Rite
  • Sabbats and Esbats

Week 6: Conclusion
  • Initiation
  • Traditions or Sects
  • Learning More

One last thing: there is no such thing as a bad (or stupid) question. If you don't want to ask a question in front of others you can always send me a private message.
