Im gonna check out the courses next. Im still a little lost on where to even start with a book of Shadows, or even what should be my first spell to do. So figured the course would lead me the right way.

A book of shadows is kind of like a spell book and journal combined. You can use it to keep spells that you like in it, list the dates you cast the spell, add your intentions, reflect on the process and/or outcome of your spells…. It’s kind of like how you interact with the spells you cast mixed with a personalized quick reference guide for yourself. The wonderful thing is that it’s yours and there isnt a right or wrong way to do it. It’s organic and kind of evolves and changes as you do! You can also journal about your beliefs and ideas, keep questions, book lists, etc. it’s totally up to you. I’m sure others will chime in too!

Hi William, I’m undomeher from the eastern panhandle of WV. Welcome! I don’t know how many online covens there are, but I know this one is full of amazing people who are always willing to help guide folks in the craft. The courses are a great place to start. Other coven members can recommend books that can help, and there are also weekly challenges. It can be overwhelming, but remember to take it at your own pace. There are no time limits. I very much enjoy the people here, and Im sure you will, too!
