Groups

Sorcerors sometimes band together in various Occult Orders, Collectives, Traditions and Mystery Schools.

Traditions and Currents

Whilst sorcery as a whole is often an individualistic and iconoclastic current, there are, nonetheless, identifiable traditions and currents. Practitioners within these traditions often employ similar terminology and nomenclature, imagery and symbols, and ritual techniques.

Collectives

Collectives are groups of sorcerers who band together in a loose non-hierarchical formation for the purpose of cooperative workings, either for the purpose of learning from each other, to work towards common goals or both.

  • AutonomatriX A networking chaos magic guild of those striving to discover, rejuvenate and disseminate magical ideas and technical skills with success as the only key to validation.
  • Dionysian Underground a growing occultural grapevine network for individual sorcerors, witches, artists and psychonauts working with the Dionysian current, with a strong magical involvement, typically worked in clusters refered to as covines.

Orders

Throughout history, some sorcerers have formed more hierarchical structures. Even when the philosophical line of the tradition the group forms around is anti-authoritarian.
