Definition varies widely. Your take? Refer to my last question Witch DOES NOT equal wicca.
A witch may not just wiccan -there are animist traditional witches. Shamans are traditional animist witches ‘that is all”.
To me, a shaman is more concerned with communication with the spirit realm and travelling in astral form to that spirit realm in order to deal with the entities that dwell there.
A witch deals with sympathetic magical correspondences in order to bring about change in the material and spiritual realms, but will not generally be engaged in negotiations with the entities that dwell there in the same way that a shaman would be.
