Degrees of Initiation:
or 'Appointments of Rank': A system defined by the Laws and Traditions of the Wiccan Clergy, established to preserve the true teachings and knowledge of the craft through competent teachers for the facilitation and referred to herein as 'the Traditions.' Tradition means a way of celebrating the God and Goddess through the use of structured 'teachings, tenets, principles, and redes,' particular to a 'family, group, or people,' passed down through the years, evolving to suit the needs of the people within, and recognized by the Wiccan Clergy as a tradition of the Wiccan People.
'The Clerical Body of Initiates of the Wiccan People' are the Councils and Clergy of the Wiccan People, who choose to bring life, instead of death oriented principles, who are the spirit and heart of the Wicca, beating with the pulse of life, for our homes, and our peoples! For the teaching of the Craft and the survival of the Wiccan Religion, to flourish, joined together in strength, establishing and maintaining the knowledge of the Old Ways and bringing them forward into the present!
The People are as those of old - 'Pagan in their Ways,' made up of many Nations, and many Traditions, yet who are all born of the mother goddess and know that they are the 'Hidden Children of the Lord and the Lady.' They are of the earth, respecting and worshipping the 'Gods,' using the craft to bring forth magick into the world!
