We expect all lessons to be done in order and completed before sending them to us. One of the Elders will then review it and email you back with any corrections that need to be made and/or if further research is needed on any of the questions or we will email your next lesson. All Adept lesson with a due date please do not send your lesson in earlier.

The lessons for all levels are like bricks in a foundation of a building if you miss putting a brick in somewhere or do not do it in the correct order the whole foundation is weak. When practicing magick there can be no weak spots in your foundation or your magick may hurt you or someone or something else somewhere in the universe. Email every lesson in its own email with the “Subject” line having the lesson number in it. Always remember the only rule of The Crat or The Old Ways is  “Do as ye will, lest it harms none.”

Even if you do not have a lesson ready to turn in every week, which is fine, we expect a short email every week you do not turn in a lesson from every student it does not whether you are a novice, an adept, a priest, or a preistess  just so we know you are still interested in studying with Coven Life. It can be very short like saying is. If we do not hear from you for three weeks in a row we will believe you no longer wish to study with us and remove your email address from the Coven Life email list emails. We realize there are times health issues or emergencies happen if possible email us or have another person email us that you are sick, there has been in us a family emergency, just had a baby for these reasons we will keep your email address for three more weeks for a total of six weeks before deleting you completely. If this happens please write to us or ask someone to write for you so we know you are still interested and if the coven can be of any help.

If at any time during your study level you chose to quit studying with us, we would appreciate an email letting us know you are exiting the classes and coven need an email telling us you no longer want to study with us and a reason as to why you are quitting. As it might be a simple reason and we might be able to work something out to keep you studying with us. Remember course fees are nonrefundable. The Elders are available by email or to meet in the chat room if you need help with a lesson or have any questions about The Craft. These meeting when at all possible should be set up a minimum of three days in advance.

We will try to answer all students emails within three days of receiving them.
Lady Beltane or one of the other Elders will hold an OPen Chat on the 3rd and 4 Saturdays every month that all student whatever level you are at must attend at least one of these Open Chat. The meeting times and date can be found on Coven Life’s Hompage under Coven Life Events on the Coven. Important information on lessons and/or other topics can come up that are not covered in the study material.

There are online coven gatherings on every full or new Moon and Sabbat have a socialization time from 6:00 to 7:00 PM CT with the Circle being cast at 7:01 PM CT. The ritual lasts about one-half hour for each gathering. You have to attend the monthly Esbat and 8 Sabbat gatherings. As the Esbats and Sabbats fall on different days of the week according to the Moon’s cycle and Wheel of the Year so we can not give a set date that we hold them on every month, please check the Coven Life website under Cove Life’s Events for the date of each Esbat and Sabbath gatherings. The entire ritual will be posted in advance of the gathering. If you cannot make it to a gathering or one of the Open Chats send us an email explaining why you will not be there.
Please check the Coven Life website at least once a week for a post you want to read. You must leave at least one comment on one post every week so we know you are checking the website for posts that can further your education in The Craft.

Before the sacred circle starts at 7:01 PM Central Time in the USA anyone entering the chat room is welcomed to socialize with anyone else that is there. You can ask questions about lessons or anything else. This is a great time to get to know your fellow coven members better. Read the Guideline for the Chatroom in our Homepage before entering the chat room for the first time, please.

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.

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.
