As you read on the front page, this coven is about connecting to the Divine in a REAL and PALPABLE way.  As we are connecting through Hieros Gamos you need to KNOW what the term has grown to mean through history and how it applies to you..

ORANGE: Learning about and Creating Tools and how they are applied to ritual.

GREEN: Using your tools to focus energy. Spellwork here in the coven is applied to change your personal life. Once you are initiated, you are co-creating the rituals and symbols we use here for your use.

We will know when you are ready for your Second Degree when:

You have developed the beginnings of your tool box (your wand, belt, talismen, athame)
you have defined your deity with whom you work
you are working spells and practicing rituals within a group
