I have an online coven called Earth Spirit Coven - we do zoom meetings quartly.
I have a list of written rites and responsibilities of coven members - and upon joining they take a coven oath. I created a video for them to do the oath with guidance from the video alone or they can contact me for a schedule zoom meeting so that we may do it together or if they live near me, we can do it together.
However, since covid hit us a lot of “in person” covens have not met in person and I know a lot are turning to video conference ways.
I am HOPING this changes - but if not, at least we have a means to ‘gather’ — plus my coven members are from all over the world…so it would be hard for most of us to meet regularly anyway.
We even have a coven sigil and logo.
During our coven meetings we:
Open with a coven blessing and lighting of the spirit candle.
Go over old business
Go over new business
Do a ritual together
and then open discussion
The whole meeting lasts about an hour.
Some covens even have bylaws - bylaws create a structure that will help to define the group.
For my coven - I have different levels of membership offered - with those levels I offer in return lessons, book of shadow content, meetings, rituals etc…depending on which level they choose depends on what is sent to them monthly. No matter what level they have chosen all are welcomed to our quarterly meetings.
Covens take a lot of time and effort to organize. I really enjoy doing it.
