The Wolf Wiccan Tradition

Wolf Wicca is a modern spiritual movement derived from traditional wicca, eastern theosophy, and shamanic practices.

Wolf wiccans do not claim the ability to physically shift into the form of wolves, though mental shifting is often used to utilize facets of the subtle body in the form of animals on the etheric and astral planes.

Wolves are sacred in this tradition and are seen as a symbol of loyalty and strength, two qualities that this path aims to bestow on its followers.

While most Wolf Wiccans use magic in some form or another, there is no requirement to identify oneself as a witch and the terms "practitioner" or "follower" are commonly used by members. Calling one self a werewolf in this tradition is strongly discouraged.

Reincarnation is one of several core beliefs in Wolf Wicca. What distinguishes this wiccan path from others is an emphasis on past life regression and animal totems. This path is hospitable towards Therians and Otherkin, acknowledging the possibility of incarnating as an animal and retaining features of that animal's spirit in the next life.

Past life regression is a form of self-hypnosis that helps us revisit memories and experiences from past incarnations as humans, animals, and nonphysical beings. Animal totems are guardian spirits that practitioners work with and are a borrowed tradition from Native American spirituality.

Followers may feel drawn to a certain animal with which they learn to connect and learn from spiritually. Totems help wolf wiccans connect with nature, which is important because we are all connected and all is divine. These animal spirits/totems are not necessarily wolves, but can be one or several different animals that the practitioner learns and grows with throughout their life.

In Wolf Wiccan rituals, there is emphasis on balance in the polarity of masculine and feminine energy. Like other kinds of wiccans and some pagans, followers celebrate the 8 Sabbats (Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, Mabon) to honor masculine energy and 13 Esbats on full moons to celebrate feminine lunar energy.

Wolf wicca can be practiced solitary or as part of a pack (coven). There is no age restriction for following this path as a solitary, though one may optionally be initiated into a pack and there may be restrictions for legal reasons. Coven structures and sizes may vary, though most share a communal guardian spirit that draws from energy raised by practitioners during rituals. Members may receive assistance from this spirit in their personal or collective magical workings.

This is a new one for me, however, this does seem legitimate. I am glad they explain right away it is not about physical shape shifting, which is impossible, instead focusing on the animal spirit, mental shifting, and wisdom surrounding the symbol of the wolf. I do not think it is a very popular Wiccan branch, but it is a fine example of how versatile Wicca can be.
