Summary of adept is highly skilled.


Ok, seeing as how no one was doing anything with this page, I have added to it. I'm looking forward to adding more later.

Generalized/Refocused Adept Article[edit]

I have rewritten the introduction as well as the tag on the disambiguation page to reflect the more generalized concept of an 'adept' in the Western Mystery Tradition (replacing the former concept specific to Magick [sic] - a term which only applies to a subset of that tradition). Going with the existing sectional flow of the article, I've added a section for Authors. Included so far: Blavatsky, and Bailey. Will add: Leadbeater and Crowley when time allows. Rewrote the HOGD section, complete with references. Will rewrite the AA section soon. I hope someone can drop some more info on the other two sections, as I have no info on them at my disposal. Most of the (neo-)theosophists and neo-rosicrucians adhere to the standard of an Adept being at or above the fifth initiation (having mastered the four elements and either mastered spirit, or about to do so), so I'd like to see some info explaining why Setians and the other group deviate from that tradition.
