"Gathering the Magic: Creating 21st Century Esoteric Groups" by Nick Farrell

"Many people on the spiritual path spend their lives looking for an esoteric order or school to join. If they find one they will inevitably find it a hotbed of intrigue and egos that eclipses any spiritual work. Despite this, author Nick Farrell believes that esoteric groups are the way forward in the Aquarian Age, provided there are fundamental changes in the way they run. The book applies the rules of group dynamics and conflict resolution to set up organizations that not only work but are fun to be involved in. The author calls on seekers to set up working esoteric groups of their own instead of waiting to find that perfect group, organization or teacher. As the title suggests, the book is written light-heartedly with plenty of humorous case studies of what happens when things go wrong. Gathering the Magic provides seekers with a window of what is happening within esoteric groups and the unique dynamics that take place when two or more gather to look at new age subjects. This book will prove invaluable to magicians, Wiccans and members of the New Age movement who wish to set up a group. It will also help those who more information about how esoteric groups work, and those who are members of organizations and want to know what is going on!"
