A friend of mine did Wicca for a while and she told me about a website where she could find people in her area that do Wicca also. The site is called myspace; just go on there and make a profile.

You can find connections to numerous Wiccans through the websites listed under "Web Links" to the left. You can learn about the religion, see how it may effect your life, or make it whole. You may even find some people close to you that you may meet with in person.

Well, that depends on where you're at. Some cities or towns have covens that are very open to the public, whereas some are very secretive about it. Some may not even have a coven and all Wiccans there are solitary. I would say you should go to schools, colleges, bookstores (New Age section), any places that sales incense, candles, herds, etc. or anywhere where many people gather. Maybe Halloween stores. Find people who wear pentagrams, they may have answers. You can always go to online Wiccan sites to talk to people, see what they know.

A useful hint: Perhaps wear a pentagram yourself, people may identify you as a Wiccan and tell you what you want to know. Another MOST useful hint: Avoid churches!

In our area the local paper has an area under Inter-Faith Worship. All of the "new Age" book stores have bulletin boards where you can find information on the local Pagans and both the University and College have listings on their web-sites.

I do not recommend the "wear a pentagram" school of thought as not everyone who is pagan wears one (nor do they approach others who wear one) nor do all people wearing a Pentagram follow a Pagan path. If you are serious about contacting others of the path, ask the Universe, you'll be surprised what will "drop in your lap".

The best way to Network with people practicing Wicca is to head to Witch Vox . I've tried myspace, meetup, and several other sites, but that is the best one, in my opinion. Easy to register, and very easy to find others near you.

Look for contacts in your local new age store, and try setting up a "Moot" - local gathering for likeminded folk. You can advertise it via posters and internet forums. You'd be surprised how quickly this can grow.

A couple ways to meet fellow Pagans, Wiccans is to do a search for local relevant meetups. Meetups are US nationwide and are absolutely free to join. Its as they say quick and painless. You just need an email and a desire to join.

A different method is to check the yellow pages , phone directory for Pagan, Wiccan groups. One can find like minded people by searching Facebook.

Wicca is a religion whehre Witchcraft is practiced. A Wiccan is a Witch (Male or Female). But there are many other traditions where Witchcraft is practiced. Not all Witches are Wiccan.The convocation ceremony to become a Wiccan is called "Initiation"

I think people are interested in youtube because you can listen to music and watch funny videos! Other people think other things, but that is what I think!

People are not required to register their religious beliefs. Nor am I understanding how a person can be a "legally convicted Wiccan", when such is not a crime. In fact the IRS recognizes - and gives tax exemptions - to Wiccan churches, same as other churches.

A:This depends in part on whether you are trying to spread Buddhism, Christianity, Falun Gong, Scientology or some other proselytising religion, as each has its own way of talking to strangers. A general rule is to be polite, explain why you believe people should be interested in your religion, respect the religion of people you speak to and generously accept rejection.

It rarely happens. When it does, it is because they think their religion is better. It is ironic that religious groups that force their religion on others hate it the most when other do the same to them.

Religions are important to people of that religion. Christmas and Easter are important to Christianity but no other religion. Ramadan is important to Islam and no other religion. And Passover is important to Judaism but no other religion. Why would an atheist celebrate Hanukkah or Beltain? The religious festivals are unimportant to people who are not of that religion (unless the festival has been commercialized and not celebrating it would not be socially acceptable).

Religion has both united and divided people. Religion has united people from various continents of the same faith. On the other hand, extremists have used religion to divide people who do not subscribe to their teachings.

The best way to locate local pagans and pagan groups, regardless of Wiccan orientation is to check witchvox.com or other similar social sites. Remember to always be careful when approaching new people via the internet.
