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.

The Sanctuary of the Phoenix Pagan Community is designed to be a more inclusive component of our Sanctuary.

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.

Sanctuary of the Phoenix is a Pagan Sanctuary liberated from Abrahamic notions and teachings. We welcome all to join us in peace to learn what is of use to them as long as it is understood we are purely a Pagan Sanctuary.

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

1. Be kind and courteous
Be kind and respectful to each other in our community.
We are made of Pagans from many paths, and people who are curious about or transitioning to Paganism.

Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.

2. No hate speech, bullying, or discrimination
Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn’t allowed.

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

3. Religious Services
Only Religious Services authorized by Sanctuary of the Phoenix shall be provided or promoted in this space.

We may hold Rituals, Blessings, and Divination from various Paths or an Eclectic mix of Paths.

These are open to anyone with a willful desire to peacefully participate or observe.

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

This Sanctuary is liberated from Abrahamic notions, teachings, and beliefs.
Come in peace, and respect this is a space of Paganism.

5. Respect everyone’s privacy
Being part of this community requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make communities great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in our community should stay in our community.

As not everyone is out of the broom closet, please do not share anyone’s identity.

6. No Spam or Promotions
We ask visiting Individuals, Sanctuaries, Covens, and Communities to refrain from recruitment activities.

No Advertising. No Selling.

7. Shared Content Notice
Links, content from other pages, content that is watermarked, or content that contain links may be posted but are subject to moderation. Especially if the source goes against our Spiritual Mission.

8. Clarification on Participation
To elaborate on #4, we are fine if you as a community member choose to hold Abrahamic Beliefs, Notions, Observances, etc. While our Sanctuary, Coven, and Clergy are liberated from such beliefs and do not allow our spaces to be used to advance such beliefs, we also try to keep an open door to allowing anyone to learn and share relevantly to our focus in our Spiritual Mission.
