Thank you so much much for that Gilles, I followed your advice and took a VAK test. It would appear that I am a "visual" learner.

Back to the book!

Most people are visual or kinesthetic learners; very few are auditory. If, like me, your auditory score is low, forget about the dictaphone method; it simply won't work.

Trust me, this is true. We have used this in schools for years across the globe and it does work. We teachers are now expected to teach the way pupils learn using a multisensory approach instead of expecting pupils to adapt to our way of teaching. This is valid for ritual learning. Hope it helps.

Best advice yet.

I've recently just learnt the Ancient Charge and found learning it paragraph by paragraph and also typing it out multiple times helped me out a great deal. I also used the recording tool on my iPhone to record myself speaking it aloud and whenever you find yourself with spare time ( on the bus etc.) pop in some earphones and play It over.

Learning Ritual

Postby thatboy_m » Sun Sep 29, 2013 8:35 pm

Repetition always helped me, I remember in university I would learn my notes bit by bit, using keywords to jog my memory if needed.

Also try and sing the parts if that helps as you'll find it works really well! Similar to when you hear your favourite song - you can just sing the lyrics.

The ne corner is one of my favourite pieces of ritual and always a pleasure to do but the best one for me is the 2nd dtb, I did the tb by learning it as three stories. The good thing about it is when presenting it, you have the tb in front of you which is an excellent prompt, I actually looked up a picture of it on google and used it to practice with when rehearsing at home, I found that helped a lot.

You are spot on there Allan. There is no easy way except to repeat, repeat, repeat until you can say it forwards, backwards and even upside down and inside out! When anyone asks about learning ritual I like to quote from the working tools of my first degree...

Isn't there something about solemnly promising that "that I will not write those secrets, indite, carve, mark, engrave, or otherwise them delineate, ... on anything, movable or immovable, under the canopy of Heaven, whereby or whereon any letter, character, or figure, or the least trace of a letter, character, or figure, may become legible, or intelligible to myself or any­one in the world"

That depends on what you consider to be the secrets. If you think every word of the ritual should be considered secret then you should not even have quoted the promise! (27)

If you think the secrets are the details of modes of recognition then you can copy out everything else.

That's why Craft ritual books have gaps and abbreviations.
