Is there such a thing as an afterlife in Wicca? How does it, if it exists, compare to the views of Christians or Moslems? If it doesn't exist, what do Wiccans see as reason to live a good or fulfilling life?

In Wicca we believe there is a period after death and before life where we meet with loved ones who have gone before and our ancestors. This place has many names, the most popular of which are The Land of Youth and Summerland. It is a place of love, light, and reunion. After you have gone there and talked, shared events from your life, and the time is right, you are reborn once again. This cycle continues until one has learned all they will ever need to learn about life. Then, you go on to once again being one with deity.
Also, we believe in Karma. Whatever you do will come back to you threefold. This is called the threefold law. if you die before your karmic debts are paid, then you will experience them in the next incarnation.
We do not have a Hell like in Christian mythologies. The wicked are punished through karmic debts. The good are rewarded also through Karmic debts.
I hope this answers your questions. If you have any more or need clarification, please feel free to ask.
