Esoteric groups working in the tradition of Dion Fortune
Several groups in the UK claim to work in the tradition or magical lineage of Dion Fortune, and the website address of those that we are aware of are listed below. If you know of a group that you think should be included in this list, do please let us know. We are often asked about Western Mysteries/Dion Fortune groups in the USA and 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.)
The group's study course provides a thorough training in the theory and practice of the Western Magical Tradition. It consists of three stages or 'Degrees' and explores the Hermetic, Green and Devotional Rays through a combination of meditation with study of the Qabalah, The Cosmic Doctrine, Elemental work, the archetypes of myth and legend, and esoteric Christianity. Regular participation in the group's magical ritual is encouraged as one of the most important elements of the group's work.
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."
The Servants of the Light: www.servantsofthelight.org
Although not solely aligned with the Dion Fortune tradition, the Servants of the Light's website states: “A school of occult science. Membership is international, with courses offered based on teaching of people such as Regardie, Fortune and others.”
