Bridging The Gap: Working Within The Dynamics Of Pagan Groups & Society (New)
by Blanton, Crystal
Publisher: Immanion Press
Book ID: 9781905713431, 1905713436
As we evolve, it becomes increasingly clear that being an incredible ritualist is not all that is needed to be a competent leader or member of our pagan society. Unless they come to the Craft already equipped with these skills from professional training or other life experience, the leaders in our community have not possessed the skills to effectively model or train in these techniques. For all the intensive training we endure in the Craft, pagans as a society are still ill-equipped to competently cope with the growing needs of our own community.
Bridging the Gap: Working Within the Dynamics of Pagan Groups and Society will look at filling the common gaps in our community by using techniques as tools to assess, understand, and work with the changing dynamic of any group or coven. While maintaining a professional polish, the book uses humor, common scenarios, exercises, and resources to examine the commonalities between techniques used in the counseling profession; giving the reader concrete, professional solutions to coping with common problems.
The book addresses:
- Basics of common techniques used in counseling including anger
- management, assessment tools, boundaries, behavior shaping, restorative justice and many others
- The common traps that occur within groups, which lead to devastating effects and dissolution
- The creation of the group mind and how it is effected by the budding dynamics of a group
- Creating boundaries to effectively mentor students
- The importance of creating clear objectives and expectations as a group
- The art of holding your group members accountable
- When it is not your fight

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.
Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
