Welcome Our Community

In our efforts to create an inclusive and unique educational and collective experience the creators of www.SpiritFIRE.org bring you an educational and communal experience with social capabilities.

The purpose of the class forums and private chats are to discuss relevant topics, ask questions, to connect with the Elder Council & to connect with other students who are taking a class with you. It is my hope that this open link will help us build and strengthen our community as we communicate and learn from one another.

This site’s Community Group Forums and private chat features are designed to offer you a safe environment to discuss topics related to your spiritual path, your classes, and to keep you informed as I post announcements and updates to your class(es).

It is my hope that this will help each one of use remain connected to this unique tribe of like-minded individuals, as we build and maintain our community. We have an excellent opportunity to develop friendships and partnerships, as we bring the value of community and the wonder of Magick into our daily lives.

Please note the core values of this group and use them as guidelines for each interaction:

  • Respect for all

Personal Responsibility

Without these core values, we could not create or maintain a trustworthy and safe environment where we can grow and share Esoteric & Spiritual knowledge and experiences. We ask that each member honors these core values in each interaction, with every member of this group.

I like to believe that we all have a natural desire to treat one another with respect and dignity. However, I understand that when we bring thousands of people together, all from different backgrounds, establishing an open set of rules is essential.

The creators and admins these groups and of www.SpiritFIRE.org will do their best to catch behaviors that are contrary to the rules and core values of this organization; please note that there may be a delay in the moderation.

Please report any concerns to an admin for consideration by messaging them directly. You may do this using this website’s messaging interface or via email info@SpiritFIRE.org.

It is up to the admins of each group to make determinations in matters relate to behavior and misconduct. Please do not try to moderate posts and comments on your own. If there is a delay in moderation by an administrator, please refer those displaying any questionable behaviors back to the set core of values listed above and the site rules listed above.

The following standards and guidelines will outline the expectations of each group member.

F.I.R.E. Event Cancellation Policy

The Fellowship of Interconnected Religious Equality (F.I.R.E.) reserves the right to cancel an event due to low participation or other circumstances which would make the event non-viable or unsafe to attend.

Weather causes us the most concern as many of our events are held outdoors within Nature. We will cancel an event for safety reasons including but not limited to the following circumstances:

  • Unsafe parking or pathway conditions
  • Heavy rain and/or winds
  • If there is a risk of lightning, flooding, etc.
  • Other unforeseen circumstances

Please remember that FIRE holds most if its events outside at Spoutwood Farm which is a semi wild location. Mother Nature will determine our ability to hold outdoor events at this location. The walkways and parking areas at Spoutwood are unpaved and the safety of these areas is subject to recent and current weather conditions. If there has been significant rain fall or high winds, unsafe conditions will occur and we will have no choice but to cancel an event.

Please look to our Facebook page, Website, and email for notices regarding event postponements and cancellations.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Withdrawals, Refunds, and Credits

No refunds will be given for classes conducted by F.I.R.E., The Program Administrator, guests and/or members of FIRE.

If you are unable to attend your or complete your class, you may be given credit and scheduled for the next available class that is equal to or similar to the class purchased.

At no time are credit or refunds given to any self-study, on-demand online course.

Course Extensions

In some cases, in which unforeseen events prevent a student from completing a course within the prescribed period, we may extend the student’s enrollment to a class or class session in the future; allowing the student to complete the class as originally intended.

The student must send to the class instructor or program director, a notice, and a request for an extension at Info@SpiritFIRE.org before the class program is scheduled to end. The Program Administrator will contact the student to make arrangements for the extension if he or she is eligible for that extension. Extensions will not be granted after the end date of the course or class session.

Eligibility will be determined on the student’s attendance record and previous numbers of extensions already provided.

Student Expectations

Students will be required to check their email inboxes and spam folders for course content and communication. To ensure emails from The Program Administrator are not missed the following emails must be placed into the student’s address/contact list:

Info@SpiritFIRE.org

Students must check their email often for necessary class materials, notices and communications.

Adhere to the suggested guidelines for progression through the course. Notify The Program Administrator at the start of the session if you would like to follow a different timetable because of individual circumstances. If the mentor cannot accommodate you, we can try to provide you with an extension that will better accommodate your needs.

Keep copies of all of your homework submitted to The Program Administrator.

The student will be required to have and maintain adequate technology that will allow him/her to participate in and obtain each on-line class session, recording, and materials. The Magick Kitchen cannot be held responsible for any missed class time due to a poor internet connection(s) or technical difficulties. The Program Administrator will, however, offer an extension for any student who misses a significant portion of any class session due to technical difficulties.

Violations of this policy will result in immediate removal from any on-going course and exclusion from future classes. All exchanges (verbal or otherwise) with other students, The Program Administrator, course instructor, and administrative staff must be professional and polite.

Student Ethics Policy

F.I.R.E.’s Education Program goal is to educate, enrich and support our students’ spiritual and religious practice. Students working on courses offered via F.I.R.E. are expected to submit their work and to conduct their research. At the same time, we encourage students to work together to provide mutual help in learning.

Part of the educational and enrichment experience is to make friends and build your network of supporters. Our courses are offered by trust – assuming the good intentions, integrity, and moral character of our students is impeccable.

Students are required to behave in accordance with F.I.R.E.’s code of ethics and values.
