WICCA BOUTIQUE AND GIFT STORE
Wicca, also known as The Craft, has vastly become one of the fastest growing spiritual paths in many parts of the world including America. Fundamental ideologies of Paganism spanning centuries-old knowledge and wisdom resonate throughout Wicca’s principle teachings predating Christianity. Polytheistic in practice, Wiccans believe the divine is here within us- and within all things- in the natural world. Hence, Wiccans hold a deep reverence for the earth, nature and the elements. As described in what is arguably one of the most historically-significant doctrines of the Wiccan faith, the Vangelo delle Streghe (Aradia, the Gospel of the Witches; 1899), the Gospel details how Primeval Deity Diana longed for life and created the universe. Yearning for the experience of life, Diana divided Herself to create millions of souls seeds (including that of humanity) and scattered them across the universe. The Gospel furthermore reveals the birth of Aradia, the Primordial Goddess’s daughter revered in modern times as the Goddess Queen of Witches. The Gospel tells of how Aradia was made mortal and sent to earth to teach humanity “the old ways” for the purpose of protecting humanity from persecution of the Catholic Church. Affirmed by academic and historical account, Aradia, lived her mortal life during the 14th century and is widely accepted to have been responsible for initiating an uprising leading to the widespread of the earliest of Wiccan teachings (and witchcraft). Among these teaching, Wiccans believe humanity (created from the very fabric of the universe) has the power of invoking the Goddess within to become conscious creators of our own – The Goddess Kingdom
