    Default Pagan/Wiccan coven

    I have no interest in getting involved with the religion. I don't really even know much about it. I'm a very curious by nature and would like to drop in on a service/coven. Now like I said I know very little about the religion, so would this be a bad idea? Are wiccans open to guests/visitors attending their services? Are they crazy in that they'll try to hassle me into returning, joining or some other type of commitment? Any advice or comments please.

    I thought about doing this when I was in college. My guess is that the answers to this question would vary widely with the particular coven or group.

    In absence of a phone number or contact person, and assuming a publicly-announced service/meeting, I guess it would just be a show up, state your purpose, and play it by ear situation. If you only give out your first name, the threat of being hassled or pressured is limited to the time you're there.

    If you actually do it, it would be interesting for you to post your observations and thoughts.

    If I decide to go to one I will report back with my thoughts and observations.

    I think I'll look for a website for a local one and send them an email or something and just see what happens.

    You're in NC too? I know some pagans, specifically Norse paganism. They hold a blot every third week or so.

    That's cool. Yeah, I'm on the coast near Wilmington. What part of the state are you in?

    The Piedmont. I grew up in Raleigh! Got family in Wilmington though!

    So you're on the other side of the state. That's cool. I'd rather be in the mountains than the coast. I'm actually in Jacksonville myself but Wilmington is close by and I like that city. It's pretty cool/quaint.

    Yup, my avatar is "THE BEAST." hah

    lol! My favorite part of the movie is the dog. And Squints. But that's another discussion entirely. haha!

    So did you find anything useful on the pagan idea? I could always ask my friend about it if you like?

    Squints. haha. That movie is grade A, classic. I think I'll do a little searching online now and see what I can come up with in the area... If it's convenient for you to ask your friend about it that'd be cool.
