Initiation is a process of "death and rebirth" - the old self dies, and the new and magickal self is born. A rite of self-dedication marks a serious commitment and dedication to the path, and should not be taken lightly. In a coven you would be looking to be initiated into the First Degree at this stage. Your studies up to this stage will have prepared the ground work for this initiation. Since we are only able to create a virtual coven enviroment here online it is required of each of us to create our own self dedication ritual working with the knowledge we have gained to date. Since this is a Qabala class I am going to ask you to base your ritual around the sphere we are currently working with, that being Tiphareth. I would ask that you go back to the sphere lesson on Tiphareth and look at it fully. Look at the correspondance tables, look for other corespondances in the web pages I have provided links for. Look also for initiation rites for covens. See how group workings are done for this type of thing. Collect together as much information as you can on initiation rites be they coven or self dedication and craft your own uniquie ritual for self dedication to your new life. You may wish to choose specific deities to work with in this area. You may wish to create your own Astral Temple for this sphere to work from in meditation. How deep you go into this depends solely on how important this is too yourself. I will give you a few links to other websites that may help you in crafting your own dedication ritual but other than that you're on your own. Once you have created it I would like you to explain it to me here. List all tools, symbols and procedure for me as if you were talking someone else through the ritual. Best of luck with this part everyone. I look forward to welcoming you into your First
