Here you'll learn the basics of movement and combat, but there will still be much to learn, starting with the next level, Rites of Passage.
When you gain control, drop down from the mystic seer's treetop abode, and move to the right. Follow the prompts on the bottom of the screen to learn the basics of movement: A is jump, which you can do twice when near an obstacle to wall-jump from it. You can also haul yourself up when you land on the edge of a platform. Head forward, avoiding the spikes in your path. Jump to the slender platform ahead to gather in your first Mark of the Gods, hidden collectibles scattered throughout the game. Then keep running and jumping your way forward.
Watch out for the blue energy font not far ahead. Time its drops, and run through when it's safe. Just after wall-jumping up a few gaps, use the ladders ahead to move toward the ground. If you can make the tricky jump from the ledge here to the ladder high up on the right, you'll find another Mark. Below, avoid another energy font, and hit your first checkpoint before proceeding to the left.
Just beyond, you'll encounter a Guiding Light, which will flutter off, guiding you forward. Watch out for more energy fonts just ahead. Stand on the green switch in the ground between two of them, then turn and backtrack, to the newly opened gate near the checkpoint. Carry on, following the Light—don't worry, it will stop and wait for you if you fall behind—until you come to a temple, which will grant you the ability to perform melee attacks, using the X button.
Now continue following the Light, using your new ability to slash through thick foliage and defeat enemies. Beware of the giant spiders ahead. Slash them a few times to kill them, and gather up the goodies they drop. When they rear back to attack, back off or jump, then move in an finish them off. Watch out for the one hiding just beyond the large energy font ahead. Move forward to trigger it, then back off, and deal with the spider without the energy's hindrance. Follow the Light back toward an area you went through earlier, and use your slashing abilities to get through the barrier on the lower right. Gather up the many items in the destructible structure, then move on, through the gate that ends the level.
