Exercise 1:  Do the Cerridwen’s Cauldron exercise on pages 241-2. Give a brief report.

Please note that many at the Mystery School believe that we sense “past lives” through a process called genetic memory, where you will have access to memories of your ancestors. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of reincarnation, look at this exercise as a lesson in genetic memory. The experiences of your ancestors have an effect on who you are today, so the lessons you will learn in this exercise will still apply to you.

Exercise 2:   Do the Greater Initiation on pages 244-245. Be sure to observe the partial fast described in the book (no meat for 24 hours, juice/water fast for 4-6 hours before), and try to avoid the news or dwelling on personal problems. Give a brief report of your experiences.
