Becoming an Initiator
Initiators are the core of the Initiatory Arm. Initiators receive training in consent and safety specific to the Initiatory rituals and are able to produce those rituals in cooperation with a Local Group of TTO.
Initiators are Chartered by Grade. It is not necessary to have taken a higher degree to be Chartered to initiate in grades you have already taken. The goal of this system is to allow initiations to be performed easily and widely without requiring initiates to travel excessively to find an initiator.
Initiators receive some general instruction in Consent and safety, but it is heavily focused on the specific initiation. They work in conjunction with a Local Master to provide the structure to conduct initiations safely.
At a grade to be specified, Initiators who are either Local Masters, or who have completed all the Educational requirements for Local Masters may apply to be Sovereign Initiators. These initiators are able to oversee all consent and safety aspects of initiations and may conduct initiations under their own authority, anywhere, outside an existing local body.
