Our training will lead to ordination of High Priest or Priestess. All class materials are either original works or public domain (appropriately noted in each lesson). This lesson plan may change from time to time, to keep our lessons as mentally and spiritually inspiring as possible for you. Your First through Third Degrees will take you a minimum of one year and one day, per degree. Keep this in mind when completing your homework. You'll be assigned additional coursework if you seem to "fly" through it, as we seek to challenge every student to learn as much as they can through each Degree. Upon completion of each degree, students are encouraged to participate in our Online Initiations (if you are choosing to walk the Sacred Mists Tradition Path) and Degree recognitions.

Lesson Fourteen - Magickal Tools
Magickal tools are more than just instruments of ritual and spell work.  To many these are considered an extension of the Witch.  Not all Witches will use the same tools and this lesson will explore tools which you may use and come across and  how to consecrate them for implementation into successful magickal use.

Lesson Fifteen - Magickal Record Keeping
As you continue to grow and evolve through your path you will be documenting all of your hard work via journaling your process, your spell work, your rituals, and all areas pertinent to your magickal and spiritual experience within your personal Book of Shadows.  A witch's book of shadows is a prized possession to the practitioner.  Learn how to organize your book and keep all your magickal information at your fingertips for generations.

Lesson Eighteen - Introduction to the Fae
When we were children, we were told stories that often included magickal little beings with wings, that while capricious, were magickal and could grant our wishes and teach us to fly.  Often feared, strangely mysterious and highly respected in Celtic lore and beliefs even today. Step into the world of the Faerie once more and discover that long lost magickal connection.  Learn of the differing types of Faerie, how to reconnect to them, what to watch for when working with Fae, and find your Faerie Guide.

Lesson Nineteen - Divination Techniques
From the dawn of time, man has always thirsted for the knowledge of what the future holds for them.  In this lesson you will explore the ways in which you can use divination tools to guide you in your life and path for virtually any situation.  These tools do not predict the future but are to serve as guidance through life.  They speak of possibilities of what may be or may come.  Seek your possibility within and find answers through your connection with the universal energies and your own intuition.

Lesson Twenty - Living the Path
You have learned and studied many things through the journey you've undertaking through the lessons presented. At this point you should be incorporating all you have learned into your life in such a way that your life includes your spirituality so much that it becomes a part of who you are and what you do throughout your day.  Here we will awaken the Inner Goddess and God in each of us as well as continue to learn of your path, living your truth and what it means to be a Dedicant of the Sacred Mists Tradition.

Comprehensive & Practical Final Examination
