Most people have the understanding that to claim to belong to a traditional witch "group", one must go through a period of learning, join a group, be vouched for, and be initiated. This is how many modern groups do work. I think this is a very problematic formula, however, because most people fail to see beyond it.

Most people have the understanding that to claim to belong to a traditional witch "group", one must go through a period of learning, join a group, be vouched for, and be initiated. This is how many modern groups do work.

I think this is a very problematic formula, however, because most people fail to see beyond it. They seek out groups or join them for the sake of membership- but groups don't make witches or mystics Fate makes witches and mystics.

This standard formula of "joining the group" fails to take into account that the true purpose of "Traditional Groups" is not to build membership and share rituals. The purpose of a serious spiritual grouping is to achieve Wisdom and Illumination. No wise, thinking person would ever make the claim that Illumination and Wisdom ONLY come from membership in a special group. (Robin Artisson)

About Author:

Robin Artisson has been studying folklore, mythology, and the interior metaphysics of sorcery and traditional witchcraft for over 20 years. His specialty areas of knowledge include spiritual ecology, occult history, herbalism and wortcunning, divination, and soul-flight or trance induction, along with a vocational interest in the extraordinary exploration of the eldritch dimensions of the mind, the soul, and the world.

Robin lives in the countryside of downeast Maine, near the craggy coast, under the shadows of the mountains and their forests. There, he carries on the relationships he has with the spiritual entities he has allied with over the years, and watches his daughters grow with much joy.

The mysteries and lores of sorcery- extraordinary participation in matters of the unseen world- are Robin's main concern. Though long despised by mainstream cultures, sorcery and witchcraft have always existed on the fringes of European and American societies, as well as in various places in other societies worldwide. The modern day has afforded the world a chance to re-appraise the realities behind these important hidden institutions, and the persistence of ancient wisdom that they represent.

Sorcery and Witchcraft are two names for the same historical phenomenon- the art and craft of allying with or befriending non-human persons or spiritual powers, and enlisting their aid to achieve specific goals- whether goals for the good or ill of people and places in this world, or goals of inner growth and wisdom. They are the oldest human spiritual practices, and they are the true core of the many tales of the "supernatural" that we have become so familiar with in the modern day. And they are never as far away as you may think.
