Maybe a list will help.

Paganism would be equated to the word Christianity. Just like with Christianity, there are many denominations, but they are all still Christian. Instead of calling them denominations, we call them paths or traditions.

Pagan Paths


~Ceremonialists
~Christian Witchcraft
~Dianic & Goddess Witchcraft
~Discordians, Subgenii and Tacos
~Druids, Celts & Celtic Christians
~Eastern Paths (Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Sikhism etc..)
~Egyptians, Tamerans & Kemetics
~Kitchen, Green & Hedge Witches
~New Age
~Non-Theistic
~Pantheism
~Recons(reconstructionism) (Hellenic Recons, Celtic Recons, Asatru, Heathenic and Germanic Recons
~Satanism (LaVeyan satanism does not consider themselves Pagan though)
~Santeria, Palo, Voodoo, Hoodoo
~Shamanism
~Wicca
~Witchcraft
