Witchcraft
 
You believe it is?

Or what do you believe it involves?

Do we believe *what* "is"? Your question assumes context you've not provided.

IMO it's not matter of believing, it's about Doing and then Seeing.
it's not matter of "faith".
if not enough for start, or if one is still proceeding in theory, would be nice to link some studies about quantum physics; for instance i love dean radin's way of explaining very much, but i guess the web could be full of safe studies about:

Do you believe in witchcraft or magic. And if so, what do you believe it is?

Personally, I believe in the power of belief itself to some extent. I was actually watching an anime until recently that had some elements of witchcraft I think.. well definitely paganism at any rate, called "Spice and Wolf". A fairly good series, although I stopped in the middle of the tenth season due to something I really didn't like.

Witchcraft...I don't know much about it really. I know that it's a religious ritual that's supposed to have some kind of tangible effect...but as someone who is very scientifically minded, I don't think it's anything more than wishful thinking. Certainly no more effective than "regular" prayer.

If magic were real, then it should be able to be studied in a scientific type of experiment. And then it would becomes science. This is in a sense the premise to Ghostbusters.

I believe in myth, I believe in belief, I believe in mystery, I believe in the mystery. I think 'witchcraft' is one way of saying all those things.

I believe in what I can see (oddly, I believe in a lot that I can't as well, but I try not to discuss it, because that sort of thing gets people locked up). What I see is 'do what thou will shall be the whole of the law'. <- that does not describe, or speak in any way to, consequences. And I believe there are consequences to behaviours. But I don't believe we get to immediately know or see all the consequences, therefore: 'do what thou wilt' is all there is to accurately describe human beings.

I believe that recognizing we live in tandem with the earth is a good thing, and I think lots of stuff that is ritual ascribed to 'witchcraft' was born out people recognizing and celebrating their symbiosis with the earth.
