Event description

Description

This class will explain the roots of the Wicca movement, from its original, secretive initiatory traditions in Britain, to its pop culture status on American TV & the Internet. We will follow the evolution of Wicca from the postwar "stepchild" of the British ceremonial magick groups into several identifiable Craft traditions; its migration to the United States and its incorporation into various social movements; its explosion as a publishing industry sub-culture in the 80s and then its expansion & popularity on the internet. As an Alexandrian 2nd Degree Wiccan High Priest, Eric played a critical part in the founding of the Long Island Beltane Festival and the New York City Pagan Pride Day.
