Review by Erin
Lisa has sent me her latest work on groups and group structure. Like her other works, this is an outstanding book on dynamic and magickal connections.
While she is an excellent writer, this book repeats a lot of material covered in her previous works on the basic structures of groups, what they do, the evolutionary cycle of a group, especially a coven, and what to do when the group relationship sours. (I should explain this a bit; I have a couple unpublished or small circulation works by Lisa in my collection. I have also attended a workshop by her on this topic. That is why I say much of this material is repeated. However, Lisa assures me that this is the first book that has wide circulation in which this material appears and that the previous books I have from her were actually the basis of this book.)
In this book, she explores how to make a healthy group work even better. She talks in depth about maintaining magickal consciousness, how to keep conflict to a minimum and how to resolve conflict when it starts to infiltrate your group.
