On Study Programs
In an effort to organize my studies, I put together two binders for the Artisan Guild and Initiate study programs respectively. I'm currently trudging away on Magic 1. I reviewed the exit standards again and realize that I could probably start working on some of them. At the same time I'm very insecure in regards to my knowledge on the matter. I've only finished one out of the three books I've purchased. I'm nearly finished with a second. I need to enforce some discipline and scheduling on myself in order to do the meditations in the third book. I think that if I sped through it without attempting to do the meditations, I would only cheat myself of possible insight and experience. After all, I did do the first meditation and got a lot out of it.
On a related note, has anyone read Real Magic by Isaac Bonewits? What did you think of it?
I would like to do more work on my muse essay for the Art SP. I need to go through my growing Celtic studies library and bookmark every mention of Brighid. I have a very good idea on what I want to discuss in my essay, but I need more scholarly material. Speaking of the Art SP, I think my next major book purchase will be an art history text. I really need to start that...
