Guidelines For Attending Coven Gatherings
Before the sacred circle starts at 7:00 PM Central Time in the USA anyone entering the chat room is welcomed to socialize with anyone else that is there. Socializing and visiting starts about 6:00 PM CT on the *ooôkevening of the gathering. Ask the Elders 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 time 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 7:00 PM CT through to the circle being opened. 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. Mainly because the extra energy raise during a ritual can fry the devices. It is even better it to be out of the room completely.
No one will be allowed to use foul and/or rude language in the chat room either before, during or after the sacred circle is cast. 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 for as long as you like.
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 email@example.com

Who’s Lady Beltane?
Merry meet, I am Lady Beltane. I am a legally ordained Pagan minister (which means talking privately to me about any topic, unless it is an illegal activity of any kind, I have to keep it confidential even if you are not a Coven member). I was Wiccan and became a High Priestess in that tradition. But, now practice as an eclectic High Priestess. My spirituality and magick have influences from different traditions of Wiccan, as well as Ancient Egyptian, Celtic (both German and Irish) and Native American traditions. I was the High Priestess for two covens which gave birth to hive-covens from my own and then hive-covens from these. (A hive-coven is one where a witch becomes a Priest or Priestess under the guidance of a High Priest and/or Priestess to then start their own coven.)
I am a hereditary witch from both sides of my family, although neither side practice witchcraft. I did learn about herbs for healing and other usages from my great-grandmothers on my father’s side. I learn not to be afraid of the ghosts I saw, heard, and could talk to them and feeling other people feelings (as an empath) from my mother who also had this ability.
I have been a practicing witch for over 40 years. I became a solitary witch over 20 years ago but still helped guide young novice witches on their path. Teaching them not only the magickal parts of The Craft such as potions, spells, and rituals but also help them along with the Old Ways a.k.a. a pagan spiritual path.
I started the website and school after being told by a mentor of mine, Lady of the Abyss from witchesofthecraft.com, this was part of what I am supposed to do in this lifetime is to teach novices to The Craft as well as help guide adepts, priests and priestesses along their magickal and spiritual path

Who is Priestess Hypatia?
Who is Priestess Maia?
Merry Greet Sisters and Brothers! I would like to introduce myself to you! My spiritual name is Maia. I spent many years learning about various paths of beliefs and traditional church services. I always found something I could connect with but, there was always something telling me to keep looking. A friend was reading the book “The Witch in Every Woman” by Laurie Cabot and thought it was an interesting read, so she asked me to read it so we could discuss it. It was the first of many books that I would read as I found the information before me had led me to want to delve into things further. I knew I had finally found my path. Being a solitary witch for a number of years was how I practiced The Craft, but I began to want to connect with others to learn, share ideas, and celebrate together. Lady Beltane honored me with taking me on as a novice in 2015. I am now a proud Elder in the Coven Life Coven known as Priestess Maia. As I continue my spiritual journey I hope to share my knowledge with others, help Lady Beltane however she needs me to, and continue to learn and hone my skills.I am grateful to travel this path with you.
Who is Dawn of the Day?
