Becoming a Siks begins with the private initiation. Even though we don’t discuss what the initiation entails, it has been described as powerful, eye-opening, and intense. Others have labeled it as laid-back, smooth, and empowering. The initiation process is simple and rich in information. The only two people involved in the initiation are the new Siks and the current leader of the Siksis. All benefits are available to a new Siks once the initiation is complete.
