The ceremonial process of those who take wish to be inducted formally into the Sagh’ic Clan and to be of one blood with the Community.
Many come as guests and friends to sit in the light and warmth of the Sagh’ic Tribal Hearth; they are a warming of hearts in themselves. And there are Teaghlaigh ag an Teallach; the family gathered the Hearth, who are the flames beyond the boundaries of the fireplace. They are of the blood and sit in acceptance and defence of all others that sit by this tribal fire.
This ceremonial induction is one of taking warrior-hood and as such is a testing and proving of the warrior heart and breath. As within the Sagh’ic Warrior-hood is genderless, this induction and its rituals apply to men and women.
The 3 Moon ceremony takes the form of a quest for the wild heart of the warrior and the name of that heart, which is conferred as the tribal name.
