Laughing for pride.

The tree most likely

To smile from the rock beside!”

Initiation

Initiation Rites will be held at Imbolc for all new incoming students.  Important to register now if you are interested. 

 

Ordination 

Those students who are interested in ordination as priestesses must complete the appropriate classes. Qualification will be determined by the student's spiritual, intellectual, emotional, personal and professional readiness.  Such readiness will be determined by your mentor and/or Bendis, Mother of our Tradition.

 

By the time the work is completed, each student will have done the work of the Tradition and will be considered for ordination. 

 

The Apple Branch does not offer the title of high priestess until such time that the work of the priestess is wide-spread and she holds a broader scope for her work than just at a local level. It is offered in recognition of her contributions to the Dianic Tradition.
