I've done my part here at Veritas to spark a level of both appreciation and curiosity of magic, which has lead(so it seems) to members here wishing for a class on the subject.
For those of you who did not know, I am devising such a class as we speak, which, unless I add or take away a few lessons, promises to take place over a period of 21-25 weeks of lessons, and is divided into four courses. People training to 3rd Level(advanced understanding) will only be in class for about 21 weeks, whereas people interested in being considered for Teacher Status here at Veritas will be in class for 25 weeks. I have finished the outline of studies, and already written 6 of the lessons. In the next two weeks, durring which I shall be at the beach with my laptop(but no internet connection), I intend to work fervently on the completion of a larger part of the lessons. If all goes well, applications shall be made public in September, with classes beginning by the end of October. If that goes according to plan, then regular classes should end at the beginning of April, with classes for those aiming for Teacher Status ending in May. The reason for the extra four weeks being added is that there will be two, two week long breaks at appropriate places in the teaching so as to allow my students some mental rest, and myself some some to reflect on the progress thus far. However, this will be the first attempt of this training program here at Veritas, and therein while those dates and estimations should be farely accurate, we will not find out untill it is finished, as this is somewhat a "trial."
Originally, I had intended to have a class of only 5 or 6 people. However, due to the length of the project, and demand of teaching, I have expanded this to 15 slots for aspirants to fill, if I can find but 15 people who show dedication and willingness to learn my methods of magic. The dynamics as to how the applications shall be filled out and returned to me are still being worked out.
I thought I would provide those curious few of you out there with this information, so that you know some of the good things to come. I'm looking foward to these classes, and hope you are too.
