Quite honestly, although I quite like many of the philosophies of druidry I think the idea of having to take a course on it (which is what the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids suggests), put me off. I have every respect for learning about your faith practices through a sequential period of lessons but it wasn't right for me a year ago and its not right for me today either. I think growing up with such a hierarchal religion really deterred me from organized faith. I just don't agree with the concept that individuals who study in seminaries or theological schools have the right to tell you how to practice your faith, going to church every Sunday does not make you devout if your spirit isn't in it.
Realizing that I definitely didn't want to practice in a group left me in a really interesting place. So very many Wiccan pages state that the only way to truly become a witch (never mind traditional witchcraft) is by meeting with a Wiccan group and having them initiate you. Totally totally wrong. There are thousands of Wiccans out there who don't practice in groups, never have and never will, and guess what they are still Wiccan.
Any site that says you need to go to an initiation ceremony to believe what you do is off its rocker!
After all this rambling, what I really want to say is that you don't have to be Wiccan to be a witch. You don't have to practice in groups to be a witch. You can be a witch without being Wiccan, its called traditional witchcraft, and you can practice by yourself, its called being a solitary witch. The world will not end if you want to celebrate the Sabbats by yourself. Just be who you are (if that means practicing in a coven, practice in a coven :) ), there is no need to force something on yourself that doesn't feel right.
