Groups working in the Dion Fortune tradition
Several groups in the UK work in the magical tradition of Dion Fortune, and the website address of those that we know of are listed below. We are often asked about Western Mysteries/Dion Fortune groups in the USA but regret that so far we have no knowledge of any.
Dion Fortune's original magical Fraternity is now known as the Society of the Inner Light and can be contacted at www.innerlight.org.uk
According to its website, the aim of the Society is to ".....develop its members to their highest potential through the development of higher consciousness and balanced expression of the whole integrated being in physical life on earth."
The Gareth Knight Group: www.garethknight.org
The Gareth Knight Group or 'GK Group' was founded by Gareth Knight in 1973. (From 1999 - 2018 it was known as 'The Avalon Group' but has now reverted to its original name). It meets regularly at Hawkwood College, Stroud.
The group provides a thorough training in the theory and practice of magical work in the tradition of Dion Fortune and Gareth Knight. The study course consists of three stages or 'Degrees' and explores the Hermetic, Green and Devotional Rays through meditation and study of the Qabalah, The Cosmic Doctrine, Elemental work, the archetypes of Arthurian and Grail legend, and aspects of esoteric Christianity.
Regular participation in the group's magical ritual is encouraged.
All students are fully supervised by experienced members of the group.
The Company of Avalon: www.companyofavalon.co.uk
The website of this group defines its work as: "The backbone of our work is along the lines of the 'Arthurian Formula' originally worked by Maiya Tranchell-Hayes and her pupil Dion Fortune. This is largely worked now through the mythos and techniques of the Brythonic Celtic Mysteries."
