Finding the right magickal community is an important part of exploring our magickal selves. Whether that is a single mentor or a thriving spiritual community, coming together with others can form the foundation of a dynamic spiritual life. But just meeting regularly does not a healthy spiritual group make, nor does a simple desire to pass on the hard-won knowledge privately gained. What makes a healthy spiritual group? How do we find one, or make one? Magickal Connections explores the nature of a magickal group’s dynamics from its inception to its dissolution, offering practical advice for people at any stage of a group’s life cycle. Potential leaders are guided through the transition from participant along with sensible exploration of their motivation for this change. With no-nonsense direction about the hows and whats of the mentoring relationship, expectations can be clarified at the outset. With its frank discussion of the politics of working within a group, Magickal Connections is useful for all members of a group, no matter their role.
"Lisa Mc Sherry has given us an excellent guide to pagan group dynamics--a valuable resource if you are in a group, plan to join one, or plan to start one." --Christopher Penczak
"Magickal Connections is filled with guidance and rituals that should be required reading. In fact, I know several groups whose members should be reading this book right now!" --Barbara Ardinger, Ph.D.
