Community Respects

Community Respects

The Sanctuary of the Phoenix Pagan Community is made of our Guests, Coven, Clergy, and everything in between. Our Pagan Community is guided by mutual respect. The Sanctuary of the Phoenix Pagan Community is a space between being a guest and making a spiritual commitment to be part of the Coven and or Clergy. Generally, one is recognized as part of our Pagan Community if they have attended more than 1 function and have a willful desire to be part of our Community.  Our Pagan Community is also the interface to how we interact with other Sanctuaries and Covens as well as the greater Pagan Community. The Sanctuary of the Phoenix Pagan Community is designed to be a more inclusive component of our Sanctuary, a space not ruled by the beliefs or structure of our Coven. Just as some Pagans may enjoy the structure and beliefs of our Coven, some Pagans simply desire to be on their own spiritual journey and share time well spent with other Pagans who are on their own spiritual journey.

So it may be known, we have come together as equals in a community to share these mutual respects:

1. Be kind to each other in our community.

2. We do not accept racism, bigotry, extremism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, supremacy of any ethnicity, gender or biological sex supremacy, sexual orientation discrimination, or gender identity discrimination.

3. We may hold Rituals from various Paths or an Eclectic mix of Paths. These are open to anyone with a willful desire to participate.

4. We are to respect that we are of many Paths and diverse beliefs, please keep interactions in kindness and focused on Paganism.

5. Observe common sense in respectful conduct.

6. Respect Privacy outside of our Community, not everyone is out of the broom closet.

7. We ask visiting Sanctuaries, Covens, and Communities to refrain from recruitment activities unless willfully and intently approached by an attendee with a desire to join. You may also leave your contact info and belief description with our Clergy so we can make it available upon request.
