Feedback Guidelines & Form

The Spiral Dance organizing cell and ritual-makers welcome your constructive feedback and comments. We want to hear any and all feedback—praise and criticism alike—on the ritual itself and/or the organizing and logistics, with the following guidelines:

–The intent of the feedback is to improve the work.

–Please be as specific as possible. It doesn’t help us improve by hearing either ‘the ritual lifted my heart to sing with the winged choir of the stars’ or ‘the ritual was slow as a turtle in a mud hole.’ What does help is specifics, such as “I was totally enthralled by the invocation to Thoth but the ten-hour list of plague victims brought the energy down.”

–Please speak of your own experience, not things you’ve heard from others. Avoid ‘everybody says,” or “I’ve heard from a lot of people…” Encourage them to come to this site and express their own opinions.

–Please respect the immense amount of work and effort that goes into creating this ritual.

–We will monitor and approve comments for +/-30 days—from October 28th, 2017 until November 30th, 2017.

–You may enter comments before November 30th but they won’t appear on the site until we have time to approve them.

We will approve all comments that fall within the guidelines above. We will not approve personal attacks, lengthy advertisements for medical products, or remarks that appear to be spam.

Thanks for your support and for the gift of your thoughtful and constructive feedback.
