  1. I was wondering if you knew of any coed covens available in the Newport Beach/Huntington Beach/Costa Mesa area as I’m newly starting to embrace my inner witch. Please email me if you have any details! Thank you so much!

    1. Brian,

      There are lots of coed covens in the Orange County area! My suggestion is to check out The Witches Voice – http://www.witchvox.com On there you can see listings for covens and events. My second suggestion is to check out all that seem of interest and follow your first instinct. If you instinct says to leave, do so. No need to be where you’re not going to feel most comfortable.

      If you’re looking for a more social way of meeting teachers and covens, you might want to consider joining the OC Pagan or OC Witches Meetup groups. We host a monthly dinner for socializing and networking with others in our local community.

      Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

      I wish you the best of luck! 🙂
