To be a Solitary Practitioner…

by Ravemore

The path of the witch is one full of loneliness. You must be prepared to accept this. Robin Artisson wisely wrote:

“If you are ready to walk the path of the Old Faith, be prepared to do so alone. Lucky you are indeed if your closest loved one or your dearest friends also share the path with you, but there is no necessity that your loved ones should also belong…since one of the basic tenets of wisdom is that of tolerance. The people of the Old Faith have had, and experienced many centuries of intolerance, persecution and pain- therefore we make no attempt to convert- but instead we are just content to belong, that being enough in its own right.” (3)
