We are conducting Pronaos Initiations this month on October 13. You should take the intitation at the pronaos level if you have not already. Read more HERE.
Recently a Frater asked ESP Master Anjala about the difference in the home initiations and initiations given in Pronaoi (the plural word for Pronaos), Chapters and Lodges. The Master replied that home initiations are vital and should be performed with intensity and excellence when a member is ascending from one degree of study to another. But!
There are two other types of initiations available to those who are fortunate to live near affiliated bodies. Enneadic Star Pronaos meets twice a month, in Portland and in Wilsonville, so that we can be close to as many members as possible. That said, members do often travel great distances to attend convocations. On her recent Rosicrucian Tour of Sacred Italy, Master Anjala met three members who drove four hours to attend their Chapter meetings. Another member talked about traveling to a distant town and staying overnight so that she could participate in regular Pronaos meetings. Lastly, a Master at another Lodge said they drove drives 40 miles each way to get to their convocation locations.
