Curriculum

The Sibylline Order curriculum is broken in two parts.  This division in the curriculum is to allow a natural break for the students to decide if they wish to continue with the course, and if they wish to be initiated.  The first part of the course can be described as more academic foundational studies, and the second part is more of a hands-on application.

The order of classes is at the discretion of the individual teacher and needs of the class.  The teacher may also add additional content to the courses listed below.


Initiation is not required to complete the course.  The two personal papers (Pantheon and Beliefs) are only required of those students wanting initiation.  However, the Order strongly encourages all students regardless of interest in initiation to complete both papers, as we feel it enhances the learning and growth of both the student and the teacher.


There is a class fee determined by the teacher, the average cost as of 2021 is $10-$15 per class, and is paid directly to the teacher.  Some teachers may also offer bartering for students unable to afford the class fees.  If you have any questions about class fees, or the availability of bartering, please discuss this with the teacher.

Individual classes are usually about 3 hours long with short breaks, though the Mysteries and Ritual classes may be significantly longer depending how the teacher structures those two classes.   You can expect the course to last between 7 months to 1 year, depending on the frequency of classes.  Class schedule and course duration are determined by the individual teacher.

The information presented here is only a guide to help potential students evaluate if the Sibylline Order Curriculum is right for them.
