Before the sacred circle starts at 7:15 PM Central Time in the USA anyone entering the chat room is welcomed to socialize with anyone else that is there. Ask Lady Beltane questions about lessons or anything else.
Once the circle starts ALL SOCIALIZING AND COMMENTS unless asked for in the ritual must stop. You will get one warning if you break this guideline. If you do it a second you will be asked to and expected to leave the gathering immediately. There will be no exceptions to this guideline.
No one should enter or leave the chat room between 7:15 until the circle is finished. To enter or leave the chat room (computer knocking you out of the chat room during this time is the only exception for re-entering the circle) during this time breaks the circle and whoever is leading the circle needs to take their time and energy to close it up again.
All electronics in the room you are in during the gathering should be shut off except for the device you are using to access the chat room.
No one will be allowed to use foul and/or rude language in the chat room either before or after the sacred circle. Anyone not following this guideline will be blocked from the chat room and no second chance will be given to attend another gathering.
Anyone attending a gathering is welcome to stay after the circle is done to visit with the others and/or offer other ideas for the ritual performed at that gathering.
These are simple guidelines and show courtesy to all coven members and visitors. If you have any questions about them please write to Lady Beltane at firstname.lastname@example.org
