									Triad of Degrees

Discipulus Terra (Student of the Earth) 1st Degree
Initiates will be expected to seek a firm grasp of reality and a
means for achieving success through material understanding. One
cannot progress without firm roots. (Hanging out with no material
direction in life are not considered roots). If one is constantly being
materialistically bounced around by this world there is little chance
of a constant flow towards anything meaningful other than
desperation and survival.

Initiates are free to achieve this grasp by wherever intuition leads.
The works of LaVey certainly offer keen insight in respect to the
reality of this world and the importance of direction. And to further
illustrate a point I'd like to add as a metaphor this idea. Who would
even consider listening to advice or ask for guidance from an
individual that can't even master the real world? I wouldn't! That
would be like asking someone that has failed in 3-4 marriages
"What should I do to save mine?"

In order to complete this first level Initiates are encouraged to
submit monthly progress reports. This is an interactive program
between the student and myself. Included in the report should be
what was achieved during that month and the means used. Books
read…materialistic gains…creative projects (art…writings etc.
which might even be distributed through our weekly ~Iron Man~
issues)…school…new insights of importance and how you have
incorporated Satanism into everyday life. And I'm certainly willing
to help when needed and act as a catalyst. It's also a chance for me
to expand MY knowledge and understanding. One hand sometimes
washes the other.

Duration of 1st Degree: 1 year or progress at your own pace
The SOE is growing larger than one person can handle. Upon
successful completion 1st Degree Initiates will be encouraged to
interact with those up and coming in our newly formed program.

              ______________
Discipulus     Theoricus(Student         of     Introspection       &
           nd
Intuition)2 Degree

Initiates will be expected to seek a firm gasp of themselves and a
means of augmenting their power of intuition. Through this
understanding of self much can be accomplished and the power of
intuition cannot be overemphasized. Many people mature…get
married…make children…gain a certain amount of wealth only to
die "poor". Missing the self-evolution recognized by many
Satanists as imperative. Satan in part IS the God of Evolution.

Initiates are free to achieve this grasp through a variety of methods.
Meditation is an excellent means at arriving and understanding self
and the power of intuitive thought. This world is so demanding and
so full of chaotic behavior it's a wonder individuals maintain at
times. (And we have an ever increasingly outbreak of individuals
that can't maintain. Mass shootings…mass bombings…mass
hysteria).

Meditation and intuitive exercises creates an environment from
which the Initiate realizes *I AM*. The understanding…the
realization of truth unspoken and the connecting factors that help
connect Satanists to Satan. With a sense of joy and well being
serving as a bi-product.

In order to complete this second level Initiates are encouraged to
submit monthly progress reports. This is an interactive program
between the student and myself. Included in the report should be
what was achieved in that month and the means used. Books
read…experiences through practice…things gained…questions
and answers. The interaction and possibilities are practically as
boundless and unrestrained as Satan "himself".

Duration of 2nd Degree: 1 year or progress at your own pace

Upon successful completion 2nd Degree Initiates will be
encouraged to interact with those up and coming in our newly
formed program.

             _______________
Discipulus Veneficus (Student of Magick) 3rd Degree

Initiates will be expected to seek a firm gasp of magical practice
and theory. Not a whole lot needs to be written here. However the
field can be overwhelming. I personally like to keep magick as
simple as possible while still not cheating on "ingredients". (As I
have done with our Triad of Degrees).

However I sincerely believe students should research all forms of
its practice and theory. From LaVey to Kabbalah…Enochian to
Chaos and for good reason. It will be found what works for one
may not work for another. And through a general understanding
and the powers of intuition success will eventually be met.

Initiates are free to achieve this grasp through a variety of methods.
One of them being study…the other practice/experience and I see
no reason to go on and on concerning the matter because my
personal path to success in respect to magick was lead by intuition
anyway. So enough "occult" talk.
In order to complete this third level Initiates are encouraged to
submit monthly progress reports. This is an interactive program
between the student and myself. Included in the report should be
what was achieved in that month and the means used. Books
read…experiences through practice…things gained…questions
and answers. The interaction and possibilities once again are
endless.


Duration of 3rd Degree: 1 year or progress at your own pace

Upon successful completion 3nd Degree Initiates will be
encouraged to interact with those up and coming in our newly
formed program.

            _______________
Once the 3 Initiate degrees are successfully completed by the
student the title of Sect of Entrance *Adept/3rd Degree* will be
bestowed upon the Initiate at which time they are free to work
towards their Priest/Priestess Degree. That will consist of working
with others for one year. The Adept/Priest/Priestess will then not
only have the knowledge gained through their efforts. But also be
considered an *exalted* member receiving all the privileges the
title could possibly provide and encouraged to start their own SOE
"grotto".

Monthly assignments usually consist of 10 questions and although
rare might consist of a 500-word essay.
