It has been said that leading a coven is like herding cats. Whether you’re searching for fresh ways to meet those challenges or you’re thinking about joining your first magical group, consult this friendly, knowledgeable companion for guidance.
Back in the 1950s and 1960s, Wicca was limited to groups known as covens. While powerful, they were also limiting, because there weren't enough to go around. Wicca exploded when it expanded to include solitary paths as part of the religion. Now the Craft is rapidly growing in numbers and many people are looking for the community which was previously part of the Craft. I am very glad that Llewellyn has now published the ultimate guide to Witchcraft for three or more people, Covencraft by Amber K.
Virtually every aspect of the coven experience is included in Covencraft. Do you want to find a coven? This book shows you how. Do you want to organize a coven? Covencraft gives you the techniques.
You'll learn how to get new members, how to take care of business and finance, and how the leaders should serve the group. Included are initiation rituals, handfasting rituals, child blessing rituals, and more. You'll even discover information on how to incorporate.Amber K. has written several books and numerous articles about Wicca and Witchcraft. She has served as National First Officer and National Publications Officer of the Covenant of the Goddess, a federation of more than one hundred covens. Her two decades of experience make Covencraft the book you must read.

Il s'agit d'un gros livre très complet : 528 pages en grand format.
il donne toutes sortes de conseils pratiques pour tous les aspects du coven. Il ne s'adresse pas à une tradition en particulier, mais aborde l'organisation et les apsects pratiques.
pour ma part j'ai été particulièrement intéressée par tous les conseils avec exemples de gestion de conflits et de communication éfficace au sein d'un groupe.
Il pourrait d'ailleurs intéresser des personnes qui souhaitent former un groupe qui ne serait pas un coven.
je le recommande vivement à toutes les personnes qui souhaitent vivre leur spiritualité/religion au sein d'un groupe.
