ADF Dedicant Program

Michael J Dangler

DP Approved!

The DP has been revised! Check out the new requirements!

Well, I've now completed my Dedicant's Program with ADF. This webpage is the full version of what I submitted to the Preceptor. To those who have visited before, you'll be seeing some changes, as the DP has recently been revised by the Clergy Council and the Mother Grove. This index page is now "index2" rather than just plain "index".

Because I've been told that my DP material on this website has been so helpful, I'm going to work with the new requirements and the subject material will be tied to those new requirements. The linking system will be a bit odd, but it should work nicely.

You will automatically be taken back to the new index page, which is organized to reflect the new structure and requirements of the revised DP. If you're only interested in the old DP, you will find a link at the top of the revised requirements to this page, which will allow you to surf my pages under the old DP again. It adds an extra click, but I want to keep both versions available.

The requirements for the old Dedicant Program are as follows:

1.Written discussions of the Dedicant's understanding of each of the nine virtues (approx. 1/2 page each)
2.Short essays on each of the eight High Days including a discussion of the meaning of each feast (approx. 1/2 page each)
3.Short book reports (1 or 2 pages each) on at least: 1 I-E studies title, 1 preferred ethnic study title and 1 modern Paganism title
4.Weekly journal entries detailing experiences in meditation for at least a five month period
5.A one page discussion of the Dedicant's understanding of the meaning of the "Two Powers" as used in meditation and ritual. This account should include impressions and experiences that the Dedicant gained from practical experience.
6.A brief description of the Dedicant's home shrine and plans for future improvements
7.A brief account of each ritual attended or performed by the Dedicant during the training period
8.The text of the Dedicant's Oath Rite and a brief evaluation of the rite
9.A brief account of the efforts of the Dedicant to find a Patron including an account of the Dedicant's Patronage rite.

After approval, I received an email from the Preceptor. My response hopefully will clear some items up for everyone.

My work:

I'm putting my own work in the order I wish.
