What levels of participation are allowed during your religion's rituals by differing levels of members?

Our rituals are all "call and response", even so there are parts and places where everyone participates. It's required, for example, that we all come into the ritual area already in a certain mind-state and energetic state and are required to maintain these throughout the duration of every ritual (no real "stretch" there, our longest have gone for *maybe* half an hour).

If someone is so moved, it's proper for them to give an "Ayea!" or a "Blessed be!" or whatever as he sees fit (kinda like "giving an 'amen'" in church).

Too, there are points when we all share wine together. At Samhain, we all burn slips of paper on which we've written things in our lives from the previous year we wish to rid ourselves of.

Is this the kind of thing you're looking for, or am I out in left field? Again. Tongue
