Section Three: The Adept
This final section leads the magician into the advanced stages of training and equips the magician with the knowledge, skills and tools to step into the life of a true magical Adept. If it is a highly practical section, with a great deal of magical action, study, experimentation and magically triggered experiences.
Although there are many aspects of magic in these modules that are not normally written about in magical books, there are also things intentionally left out: it is the role of the teacher to lead the magician to the door, but the magician must recognise that door for themselves, and be able to step through it alone, without prior knowledge.
Every lesson is this section points to a specific ‘door’, an aspect of magic that potentially can take the magician to the very heights and depths of magical power. But it is up to the magician themselves to actually recognise these doors, to be able to step through them, recognise the room they are in and learn for themselves how to operate magically.
This is a very traditional way of teaching and potentially exposes the magician to vast, deep and powerful magical Mysteries.
The foundations laid in the Apprentice and Initiate section now become vitally important in order for the magician not only to understand the Adept level of training, but to also be able to fully engage with magic at this level safely. It becomes apparent to the student when they reach this level as to why the previous sections were so carefully constructed, and why each step was very defined, studious and contained. That foundation allows for the student, when they reach this section, to engage fully in the massive leap in the level of training: the Adept level of training is of a much higher power level in comparison to the Initiate level.
