Coven Duties

I just wanted to touch base with people who may be searching for a Coven or some kind of group that does coven-like things. Being a part of a Coven is not something that should be taken lightly. These people have formed a group for people who are just as dedicated as they are and who wish to find others who seek the same path. They deeply respect their paths and the direction of the group and they are highly committed to spiritual growth. So, with that being said, if you are trying to find a Coven, first ask yourself what your reasons are for trying to find one.

These questions can be like: Do I want to find a community with the same views? Do I want to practice ritual regularly? Do I wish to grow spiritually? Do they have classes I can take? Once you have answered these questions then you can go about finding the right group for you. But also know, that these people expect effort on your part as well.

I have been in many different groups. I have been in very strict ones as well as more relaxed ones. Some groups will not think twice about dismissing students who miss class and ritual regularly. Some groups require a membership fee from coven members to help with the fees of the coven. Other groups may only meet for Sabbats and those may be open to everyone. Whatever the group you decide, just remember that if they have requirements and expect something out of you, they also have the power to dismiss you as well. They aren't being rude or mean, they are just doing what they think is in the best interest of everyone in the group.

Covens are not fads. If you are not an active member of the Coven then you are not a Coven member and may not define yourself as one. That is disrespectful to the Coven and it's members. Also, being a part of a Coven does not validate one's being a Witch. You can be a Witch without a Coven. So if you can't find a group that suits you, don't worry. Simply practice as a solitary until you find a group or create your own group.
