PectiWita

PectiWita

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

The Witchcraft of the Picts, the early Celtic people of Scotland. PectiWita differs from the Wicca of England and much of Europe in that there is little emphasis on

ritual or the worship of the gods. It is closer to the Hedge Witchcraft of Europe, with emphasis on healing, herbal lore, folk magic, and divination.

PectiWita is a solitary Witchcraft practice found mainly in the Highlands of Scotland. Aidan Breac, a PectiWitan, was teaching it to select students when Raymond Buckland heard of him in the late 1970s. Ten years later, Buckland made contact with Breac, who lived off the northwest coast of Ross and Cromerty County, Scotland, after which Breac agreed to let Buckland publish some of his teachings.
