They are intitiations. All the practice texts will be available.
Been to empowerments before where i was told it was just a blessing and your not supposed to do the practice (Whte Tara, etc). Of course that was still a great blessing. I want to DO these practices as I see fit though. Don't want to pay hundreds of bucks and not be able to utilize these.
Wasn't able to tell if all the practice texts will be given and so forth, from the way the message was written.
