FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson, FOI Convocation,
Isis Oasis, Geyserville, California, 2011
From Olivia Robertson, dated October 11, 2011
There are those who founded teaching centres within the Fellowship of Isis before coursework, guidelines and regulations were implemented. In those years between their founding and the production of guidelines, regulations and courses, these centres have brought through others, who have founded their own centres, and in turn, teach in the same format. The question arose - are they valid? ALL training courses are valid. ALL centres have autonomy. Regulations and procedures are provided as guidelines, they are meant as suggestions. The ONLY basic requirements are teaching centres base their work on the F.O.I. Manifesto and the F.O.I. Liturgy. The Candidate using rites suggested in the coursework most helpful to his or her own chosen Path. The College of Isis being the exception, as guidelines were laid out upon the revival of the College as inspired by Isis.
“The Queen’s regulations are handrails, not handcuffs.”
- General Sir Lawrence Parsons, grandfather
and Olivia Robertson. He burnt mounds of red
tape in his day!
