Transcript of Wicca

Wicca, Beyond the Stigmas
When we began this process we started by brainstorming what we knew, or had heard about Wicca, Witches, Pagan, & Wizards. We came up with three main things we had heard, or seen.
Counseling Implications
Our Common Misconceptions, #1
Wiccans and Pagans worship the devil.
Common Misconception #2
Those who practice Wicca, or align with the culture and belief are evil.

According to all three interviewees, Witches generally adhere to the Wiccan Rede.
Common Misconception #3
"They" are different from us. And that is scary.

Through this process we have learned so much, and through our presentation we hope to eliminate some of those fears and misconceptions you might have as well.
What is Wicca, a cultural view point.
How does the world view it?
The culture...a more in depth look.
Differing views
The teenager, an underlying belief.
The store owner, and Lord.
The holistic Yoga instructor.
If they seek us out...
Will they seek us out?
Presenting issues if they do seek us out.
How do they traditionally heal?

The client-counselor relationship
