is the most complete book on creating and maintaining a coven written to date, with solid advice on networking, group dynamics, the possibilities of incorporation, community service, open rituals, and so much more. The sheer amount of information in one book is staggering, but the truly amazing part is that all this information is indispensable. One would be hard-pressed to find something that Amber K has missed, but if there is something lacking, she has included enough contact information and reference material to answer any questions that may arise. If you are thinking of starting a coven, Covencraft
will smooth the way and point out potential troubles before they can wreck your projects. If your coven is already established, you will wonder how you ever got along without Covencraft

From the Publisher
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.
