You do not have to join a coven. A coven can be good as it can be bad. Online covens are a lot mroe what is the word. Adaptable due to the fact you can access it daily through internet. And now a days Wifi is almost every where. Real life covens can be more time comsueing due to teh fact of planning when to meet and what you will do and who will be their. I do not belong to a real life coven. But I teach in real life. You can also just look for a mentor if you are looking to gain access to knowledge. As covens also have this too. Just think what do you want and how you want to recieve it. Mediate over it. And if you wish to join over one of the covens on this site. View the Bio of teh coven before joining.
