Found a good reminder for the advantages and disadvantages of practicing by yourself and by joining a group:

- You get to follow your schedule of worshipping.
- You do not answer to or are responsible for another person.
- You have your own set of rules and code of ethics that you prefer.
- You have the freedom to work with anyone you like despite his or her traditions.
- It becomes hard to network with other Wiccans.
- If at a point you feel you need a mentor or teacher, in solitary there wouldn't be one available since you are working alone.
- You may be limited in the variety and quantity of knowledge you obtain.
- It's nice to hang around with people that share the same beliefs as you.
Working in a Coven
- In a coven, there are more opportunities for meeting new people and connecting with them.
- Practicing in a coven is usually more organized and formal, which helps one to learn better.
- In a coven, you get to learn from people who have more skills and/or knowledge than you.
- While studying in a coven, you get to follow a coursework that is detailed and organized, making learning easier.
- If you join a coven, you will have to adjust your needs and ideas to the coven's way of doing things.
- In a coven, you have to work on a schedule. This can prove to be a problem if you have a time demanding job or other responsibilities.
- In a coven, since there are several people in it, issues might occur.
- If someone is on a power trip, a coven has the potential to be a miserable experience for everyone involved.
