Traditional Wicca an initiatory, mystery path composed of a collection of practices and rituals derived from the early pagan/heathen religions of Europe along with elements of ceremonial magick. Wicca itself not ancient, but many of the concepts it embodies are. There are now many, varied Wiccan traditions and solitary practitioners of Wicca. All live by the Wiccan Rede which demands that we harm none in our daily lives as well as in our practice of magic.
While Christians may define a pagan as anyone who does not follow the Christian religion, neo-pagans use the term to refer to non-Christians religions where the followers live by the laws of nature and literally worship the ground they, themselves walk on. Neo-pagans tend to be highly spiritual people who feel at one with nature, not above it.
