Chapter: 18. What is the Difference between an Eclectic and a Traditional Pagan or Witch?

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45485

Both practices contribute to the rich diversity of the modern Pagan movement, and the choice between these paths depends on individual preferences for structure and historical continuity versus personal autonomy and creativity.
