Hi! Hope your day/night is going great. I am 25 years old, I've been studying for a little over a year now. I have not started any rituals or spells because I feel as though I would benefit from one on one guidance. I am from a small city and there is not much of this subject going around! I wonder if there are any lovely people near me that would be my mentor or possibly a coven that would be kind enough to accept me. Thanks for reading!
Hello Amanda, welcome to Pagan Space.
Hello, thank you
Yes, they are either way to far away or not what I want. The only one that got back to me was a group that only talk online and give reading assignments. I want something more personal. I view covens as families.
Your best bet may be to see if you can make it to a Beltane event and ask folks there. If they like you, there is a good chance at least a few individuals will be able to point you in the right direction.
Otherwise, the internet tends to be something of a dead end. People who are earnest do not generally advertise on the internet, but tend to prefer solitude and close tight-knit connection. Finding people who are trustworthy is perhaps one of the taller orders of magnitude of difficulty in our modern time;...so this is another reason people will tend to be cautious.
What you are looking for is very rare, so unless you are willing to go the distance, you will likely end up walking a lone path like most. Good luck.
Good Luck. Hope you find what you're looking for.
