An aspiring member must be ready to attend the meetings of his/her local Temple,
as well as put aside the time necessary each day for personal studies and
practices. Normally, there are two meetings every month. Members living abroad
or far from a Temple might be given excuse for not attending every meeting,
but will have to compensate for that with personal work.
Aspiring members should consider that, although the S.R.C. & S.S.A. is
open to all free men and women regardless of religion, the initiation process
works foremost within a Gnostic, Egyptian and Judeo-Christian symbol system.
Upon having returned the application forms, any candidate will have to meet
two representatives of the Order. If approved in both instances, the aspiring
member will be given some personal work (practical and theoretical), and will
report the same to the officer in question. If this work is approved, then
the initiation will be scheduled.
A neophyte in our Order will have to swear an oath of the strictest secrecy
regarding everything about the S.R.C. The reason for this is to manifest one
of the most important virtues required for sincere occult studies, i.e. silence.
As the neophyte advances in grades, he or she will be able to speak more openly
about the Order and his or her understanding of the same.
Neophytes will have to report their work to their individual tutors on a regular
basis. Both the tutor and the Hierophant must grant requests for advancement
in grades, before further initiations can take place. Also, the candidate
must be able to pass both the required theoretical and practical examinations
before advancement can take place.
