For those Companions who study the Silent Eye Correspondence Course the Sunday morning of our April Workshop is a special time.
It is then that we mark their progress through the three degrees of the course with a ceremony designed to ratify each stage of that process.
This year we were delighted to acknowledge Alethea Kehas and Barbara Walsh who completed their Second Degrees and Maurice Obioha Nwankwor (Obi) who completed the Third Degree of the course and thereby became the first of our students to achieve this beginning…
‘Initiation cannot be conferred by human hands.
Not all who reach the Portal will pass the Threshold.
Not all who knock will see that door held open to the Light.
Initiation cannot be bought, nor can it be earned through effort.
It is not a goal, but a beginning.
It is a recognition of the soul and symbol of the contract between the Initiate and the Inner Light.
It comes not as a reward, but as a Grace.’
