Merry Meet Morghan,
If you are interested about learning more about Wicca and/or Witchcraft here are a few legitimate sources to glean knowledge from. First being Witchvox athttp://www.witchvox.com/ Here you will gain knowledge through fellowship with other of like mind and knowledge through the countless articles posted. If this is not enough one could look into getting online training through Witch School athttp://www.witchschool.com/, it has some really good resources plus they have a free first degree program. All are pretty decent for learning the Craft on the Web though like any site they have some issues, take what you can and leave what does not work. Also if you are close enough to an active group that specializes in education and development like the SCWF try and join them even if it’s on a limited capacity.
If you like DVD’s, try Witchcraft Rebirth of the Old Religion by Raymond Buckland (DVD), Discovering Witchcraft by Janet and Stewart Farrar (DVD), Ancient Mysteries Witches by A&E (DVD), Craftwise Volume 1: Candle Magick by Peter Paddon (DVD), Craftwise Volume 2: Cord Magick by Peter Paddon (DVD), Wish on a Spell, Vo. 1 by Deborah Gray (DVD), Practical Magick (DVD), The Craft (DVD).
As for books I also suggest that you get your hands on Wicca for Beginners by Thea Sabin and/or The Circle Within by Dianne Sylvan. Both of these books are very good reading and both will give you some deeper insight to the Craft and how it relates to you. Also you cannot go wrong with anything by Scott Cunningham. Try your local public library for resources and recommendations, many people donate directly to them for the community to use.
I also recommend that if you are sincerely wishing to grow in Wicca is to avoid certain groups or sites that promote negativity by insulting others or stirring up trouble. They will only slow you down or even cause obstacles in your walk that could hurt your spirituality.
I hope my blurp helps out.

Honestly, I find you BF's mother's comment insulting. A "good Wiccan" is someone who believes as Wiccans do. Since you don't even know about Wicca, that's clearly not the case. You can't look at someone and judge the religion they should be in! That's awful! There's also more than a hint of proslytising going on in that statement, which Wiccans generally reject. The simplest answer here is...do you believe as a Mormon? Are you happy as a Mormon? Does it spiritually fulfill you? Then you shouldn't even be considering converting. We are talking another religion here. Among other things, we're polytheists. If you're interested in learning about Wicca from an academic perspective (such as to better understand your BF), you can get an overview on Wikipedia and then start looking in the library for books. You can also borrow books from your BF. Be wary of information on Wicca online - there's a lot of silly stuff out there on the Web.

There are two sites I would recommend for you: http://www.witchvox.com/ and http://wicca.cnbeyer.com/ . Witchvox is an online community for Pagans and it's a good resource if you're looking for Wiccans to teach you and guide you along your path. Be careful about who you give your information to, and never meet anyone in person before you're 18, and if you do meet someone in person, don't go alone and make sure someone else knows where you're going. There are wise teachers out there, but you never know if someone's a creep pretending to be a Wiccan teacher. The cnbeyer site is a no-nonsense information database for Wiccans, whether they're new on their path, long-time Wiccans looking for other perspectives on the religion, or non-Wiccans who are curious about the religion. The site is a great, and reliable source for learning about what Wicca is and isn't. The site also has a good book list and reviews of all of the books (or most anyway) on it. It's a terrific starting point.
I would also like to respectfully disagree with Kristin that Wicca is an initiatory only path. It may have started that way, and certainly I would not dream to call myself or other solitaries traditionalists, Gardnerians, Alexandrians, or anything of the sort, but eclectic Wicca is still Wicca, and I know traditionalists who support the eclectic movement. It is a personal religion that one needs only the gods' approval to follow. I am not coven-trained, and I don't honor the God and Goddess in the same exact manner as those who are, but self-taught is still Wicca. I study what I can from books, and learn the rest from the Lord and Lady and all the other gods. Of course, this is not to say that coven-training means nothing, but not all Wicca is initiatory based, and for those of us who remain eclectic, it is not necessary. We all experience the divine in the ways best suited to ourselves.

The Internet is not necessarily the best place to study any spiritual tradition. You can check out this site: http://www.witchvox.com/ for links to other sites that might be of use. Books by good solid Wiccan authors is best, including Janet Farrar, Scott Cunningham and Starhawk to begin with.
You may also contact me by email. I have been pagan for 16 years, the first 7 of which I was Celtic Wiccan. I was also ordained by a Wiccan-based pagan church and am currently a practicing Celtic Reconstructionist Pagan.

The largest and oldest gathering place I am aware of for Pagans and Wiccans is here http://witchvox.com/ You can use the search tool on the left side of the landing page to find others in your area. (Please use good stranger safety rules if you want to meet people IRL and stick with community/group activities until you can check the teacher's reputation with the rest of the community) Witchvox is also a good source for all manner of things from articles and essays to lists of vendors that carry hard to find books and specialized supplies.Source(s): Nordic Heathen

I'm an ordained and licensed Wiccan High Priestess who runs a coven. I'm happy to help you isolate your options regarding Wicca. Wicca is not a self-taught religion and is given in 3 levels of elevation by initiated Wiccan teachers. I encourage you to study about different Wiccan Traditions on WitchVox.com. If you wish, you may e-mail me at email@example.comSource(s): Wiccan clergy
