NOTE: Accreditation & Ordination
Please note that the above programs are designed for in-group or order use, and do not have formal accreditation. Based on most recent information – except for ADF, these organizations are not formal churches (for instance, 501(c)(3) religious non-profit corporations in the US) and do not ordain.
Contact the program you are interested in for more information.
Local training opportunities vary widely. Many groves will have no formal training, as their members are progressing individually through their order’s programs. Some groves will have informal learning across a broad range of topics of interest to members. Individual groves may have their own training programs, but often only for seekers in their immediate geographical area.
