An ethical conundrum regarding coven membership...

by Nick
(Fort Worth, TX, USA)

I am brand new to the realization that I am a proud witch.


My wife and I have just begun our journey and have decided that when we're ready we'd like to start our own coven. My dilemma is this: I am as an infant in a new world and as such have so much to learn from elders of the Craft. Considering my goal of starting a coven, would joining an existing coven be unethical, considering my ultimate goal would be to leave and start a new coven?

I certainly don't want any bad feelings, so I'd be up front with any coven I seek. I'm sure there are worlds of wonders I can gain only from working personally with other like minded individuals, but I am willing to take the path which requires more work by studying on my own and with my wife. Do you have any wisdom to impart on this subject?

Thank you for all the work you've put into this site, which has me giddy and hopeful for a life of fulfillment & joy. I haven't felt this way in my 32 years.

Coven Membership
by: Ken

Nick,

Traditionally, the reason for joining a Coven was not only to practice with other people, but to get training in the Craft, and learn how to run a Coven.

Traditionally, the 1st Degree was to learn the basics of how to do ritual. The 2nd Degree was to learn how to teach others, and the 3rd Degree was to learn how to run a Coven.

I don't see any problem, ethical or or otherwise, in joining a Coven before starting your own. It could be very helpful.
