I would be more than willing to give you a refresher course, ill mail you a way to contact me away from SoM so that we can talk more freely without having the rules of this site interfere. As it seems, I am not much liked here so publicly teaching you is out of the question since it will just be considered fluff.
Kts as far as the comment of being limited in my practice, that doesn't hold true. I have access to anything I need in the occult and all I have to do is ask, my uncle has been in the occult himself for ever 30 years, my older brother has been into this for over 15 years and the other brother has over 23 years. I am not hindered from the occult as most my age are due to parental figures disapproving of my actions. But as far as the ranking system goes, I care not to win the popularity contest.
