Sample text

It’s important to ask yourself if you have the energy and shielding skills necessary to teach. Questions Before You Begin Whether you feel great, excited, terrified, enthusiastic, nervous, angry, or nauseated at the idea of teaching—and believe me, you might feel all of those emotions—it’s a good idea to ask yourself the following questions before you begin. Why Do You Want to Teach, and What Do You Want to Get Out of It? Knowing why you’re teaching is vitally important. More specifically, having your expectations somewhat in line with what you might actually get out of teaching is vitally important, so you’re realistic and not disappointed.

So you can’t just go get a book on Wicca and decide that you’re a teacher. You really need to be around for a while and experience and be interacting with other teachers and other groups and other forms of Paganism and such to have a bigger picture of what’s going on before you can really take on the role of teaching in a bigger way. Obviously, if you’re in your own little circle and you’ve got five or ten people in it and no one knows anything and you’ve read four books, then you’re the best there is for that group.

These life events require energy, time, and emotional resources. If you have a family with young children, elderly parents to care for, or a job that takes up a lot of your time, you might want to wait as well. Some chronic illnesses make it difficult to teach, while others require that you take very good care of yourself so you’ll have the energy to teach. Carefully weigh your desire to teach against your other obligations. Don’t forget to allow time for a social life, either. It’s easy to get so wrapped up in the needs of your students that you forget to see to your own.
