SAMPLE SORCERY PASS DRAWINGS

Reader input is needed to develop good representations.

A few readers have written that the sorcery passes were emphasized in seminars as a way to harness the energy gathered in the recapitulation. Carlos' group does seem to be emphasizing them, since they are taught at the end of their seminars. This suggests that everyone interested in the recapitulation ought to consider doing the passes, and that instruction beyond that in the books might be needed.

The descriptions in the books are very detailed, but in fact they are not logically exclusive. There are possible conflicting interpretations on what's written. Since most of our readers have not been invited to a seminar, we hope to build visual representations of the information seminar attendees are receiving. We started this project too late in the development of this issue to receive input from readers. To get the ball rolling, we hired an artist to make the representations shown. They are accurate representations of our own interpretation of the text of Taisha's book. They should not be taken as the correct way to do these passes. We suspect that the passes may be like the recapitulation; the intent is the important part, the details can be personalized. We hope these sample drawings will stimulate discussion by readers who have seen the actual passes performed. Also, we don't know what should be considered a "sorcery pass" as there are many techniques in The Sorcerers' Crossing and throughout Carlos' books. We hope that readers who have a better understanding will share their knowledge. A large body of practitioners might benefit all of us.
