The lessons for all levels are like bricks in the foundation of a building if you miss putting a brick in somewhere or do not lay them in the correct order the whole foundation is weak. When practicing magick there can be no weak spots in your foundation if there is than your magick, especially spell casting, may not be being done safely and you could hurt yourself, someone or something else somewhere in the universe or your spell and/or ritual might not turn out like you wanted it to.
I expect all lessons to be done in order and completed before sending them to me by their due date. I will then review your lesson and email you back with any corrections that need to be made or if further research is needed on any of the questions or comments I have about your answers. If there are corrections to be made you will have to email these answers in for review before receiving your next lesson.
Email every lesson in its own email with the “Subject” line having the lesson number in it use this email to write your replies for the questions. The lesson answers have to be sent in the body of an email. NO attachments with the exception of the novice’s first lesson.
All Novice and Adept lesson have a specific due date and will not be accepted for review after the due date unless arrangements have been made with Lady Beltane. If the lesson is sent in before the lesson’s due date, it will just sit in the school’s email (email@example.com) inbox until their due date. After your lesson is reviewed and if any further information requested is also reviewed you will receive an email with comments from Lady Beltane after she has thoroughly reviewed your lesson. The next lesson will be emailed to you when your current lesson is completely finished.
Even if you do not have a lesson ready to turn in every week, which is fine. But you have to send a short email every week you do not turn in a lesson no matter which course you are in. Just so we know you are still interested in studying with WOTC’s School of Witchcraft/Heart’s Spirit Coven. It can be very short, just a hi will do, but you must email her.
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 Witches of The Craft email list. We realize there are times health issues or emergencies happen, if possible, email her or have another person email her that you are sick, there has been a family emergency, or just had a baby, etc. For these reasons we will keep your email address for six more weeks for a total of nine weeks before deleting you completely.
If at any time during your study level you chose to quit studying with us, Lady Beltane will need an email telling us you no longer want to study with her and a reason as to why you are quitting. As it might be a simple reason and together we might be able to work something out to keep you studying with me. Remember course fees are nonrefundable.
Lady Beltane is available by email or to meet on Skype if you need help with a lesson or have any questions about The Craft. These meetings, when at all possible, should be set up a minimum of three days in advance. Lady Beltane will try to answer all students’ emails within three days of receiving them. When requesting a one-on-one meeting with Lady Beltane please give her two different times and days that are convenient for you to meet. She will pick the one that fits into to her schedule.

Before the sacred circle starts anyone entering the Heart’s Spirit Coven/WOTC’s School of Witchcraft Skype private meeting 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. Once it is time to cast the circle all conversations must stop, they can be picked up again after the circle is opened/closed.
Email this sentence, “I have read the Student Handbook and agree to what is expected of me as a novice or adept in Heart’s Spirit Coven/WOTC’s School of Witchcraft.” I understand the consequences of not doing what is expected of me.” to Lady Beltane at email@example.com so she knows you have read and understand what is expected of students and what they can expect from her.
