How do we build healthy community? Pagan and alternative spirituality groups find themselves in crisis. Burnout, drama, power struggles, gossip, betrayal, abuse, conflict, toxic personalities…or groups just fade away, unable to rally enough volunteers to get the work done. Groups gather together for spiritual work and find themselves unable to get past the challenges of group dynamics.
This book is a collection of articles and essays written over the past eight years articulating thoughts and techniques for leadership, community building, and the deep personal and spiritual work we need to transform into leaders who build sustainable, vibrant communities. The articles constructively look at common problems in Pagan communities and explore leadership challenges in an understandable way while working toward solutions.
Whether you’re a seasoned leader or a brand new member of a group, this book will offer some tools and techniques to build healthier communities for our future.
