I want to kick off this discussion here by talking about covens.
I myself have never been part of a coven, and most of that has to do with a lack of community around me. Another reason that is personal to me is the fact that I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and a mild form of OCD. This plays a large role in my interactions with other people “in the real world” and tends to keep me away from larger crowds.
I do want to experience a coven in theory, mainly for the community it brings. However, I don’t have defined “rules” for my practice. Most covens are tradition-based and, since I don’t follow a specific tradition, it would be difficult for me to feel a sense of belonging.
Let me hear your thoughts!
Have you ever been in a coven?
Do you want to be in a coven? Why, or why not?
