Yesterday evening Sorcha and I went to Den Haag (The Hague) for a meeting with Phyllis Curott. We have done two workshop weekends with her in june 2005 and april 2006. Her method of working and teaching appeals to us very much. Together with some others who did the workshops we are interested in being initiated into the Ara Tradition and be a member of the Temple of Ara, a Wiccan/shamanic congregation and community Phyllis started in 1983.
We received the petition for initiation with the directions and requirements. In fall 2007 (probably) there will be an initiation week (two weekends and the week in between). A month before that the petition has to be ready. It's a challenge, but I really want to do this. Phyllis told us about what she did the past 7 months, explained some things about the initiation and answered our questions.
