We have an update FROM Gavin Bone and Janet Farrar on this subject, and if you are on Facebook you can look up their page to see their posting about this ‘school’.
“We checked with Sacred Mists. Just as we thought, Mr Dennisio Vandusen-Torres has never done a course with us, or any other course with Sacred Mists. We have never had any contact with him.Our course on sacred mists is not initiatory, and is only certificated to one level. It is an intermediate advanced course for solitary eclectics who want to go a bit further. Basically it provides tools for them to practise in their own way. Initiations by us are only ever done face to face after a period of knowing the person and being sure they have had adequate training. We NEVER charge for initiation, nor the training which leads to initiation. While others may do this, and we would not judge them on their decision we are personally uncomfortable with it. I believe he may have looked at the sacred mists site and became convinced that it was us running the Sacred Mists Tradition degree system, we are not. This is being run by Lady Raven Moonshadow.We have had a look at some of the material he has posted on the web. To be honest some of it disturbed us. He seems to ‘have his finger’s in several pie’s’. We have no doubt he is quite new to ‘Wicca’ and does not have at this time the experience or wisdom to teach others. let along charge for it.We are aware of the postings at: http://holzmantweed.tumblr.com/post/26366189103/alert-wiccan-community-network . We have no problem with you posting this reply up on this site. We will be carefully putting a posting on Facebook to deal with this issue.Thanks for bringing this to our attention.”
