I been thinking a long time about this, and the time is ripe for me to start my own coven, I’m tired of flying solo, its time for this eagle to land! Have any of you guys/gals started you own coven? How did it go down?

Good for you, if you want to do it, do it! If it isn't what you expected, whats the worst that can happen? There are plenty of covens that just fade away after a few months, and thats not such a bad consequence if its a learning experience for you.

I personally wouldn't do it, though, but that's only because i'm solitary in most aspects of life: ritual and/or religious/spiritual practise being one of them.

A friend of mine started his own coven. I was even assisting him with teaching while I was in Joburg. It was a nice relaxed group of people and things went well. But then I moved out of Joburg. If you want to contact my friend to get advice as to how he started, let me know.
