A journal and something to write with is always suggested when attending 22 Teachings. There will be time following the rites to record the experience if you wish, or meet your fellow celebrants.
Ritual dress – something lightweight and ritual appropriate is best. If you have a magical robe, caftan etc, wear it. If you do not have any ritual wear, not to worry, this is not a dress code, just dress in whatever makes you feel magical.
You may also bring a small item to charge on the altar if you wish to do so, or an offering to place. Fruits or flowers, or herbs ruled by Mercury such as Sage, lavender, fennel, licorice, or marjoram are all appropriate, or orange fruits or flowers for Hod, or red roses/ white lilies for the Magician Key I
If you charge a talisman or item please don’t forget to take it before you go. Offerings may be shared with the group and distributed once the Rites have completed.
All proceeds go to the 22 Teachings student scholarship fund to provide financial aid to students of merit
