What it means to be IDGAF

IDGAF has a lot of flexibility, but we do have expectations. There are too many throw-away traditions. We don't want our tradition to be like that - we want to have and be something to be proud of! Since the IDGAF tradition isn't something you can be initiated in and forget about, these are the guidelines we expect our dedicants to follow.

- You should have six learning opportunities throughout the course of a year. This should include at least two books, but it is not limited to books only. You can take a class or workshop, you could go to a gathering, you could volunteer for a beach cleanup. The point of this is to push our dedicants to continue their learning, expand their minds, and allow them to question their beliefs.

- You must maintain a sacred space. Whether it be a small shoebox altar or a grand room, you will have to care for and maintain that space as a place for your workings. Think of it like an office, or a garden. You must keep it clean, you must nurture it.

- You must hold or attend one ritual per month, to fall on a new moon, full moon, or holiday. You can work with your coven or group, you can attend an open, public ritual - or you can have a solitary ritual. It can be as elaborate or simple as you choose. This is something you can blog or journal about. We expect this as a continuation of our initiation process, and falls in with our personal empowerment tenet.

- You must continue your land stewardship practices from your initiatory period. Wikipedia talks about environmental stewardship:
There are 3 types of environmental stewards: doers, donors, and practitioners. Doers go out and help the cause by taking action. For example the doers in an oil spill would be the volunteers that go along the beach and help clean up the oil from the beaches. A donor is the person that financially helps the cause. They can do anything from donating their money, to having galas or other fundraisers. They are typically governmental agencies. Lastly there are practitioners. They work on a day-to-day basis to steer governmental agencies, scientists, stakeholder groups, or any other group toward a stewardship outcome. Together these 3 groups make up environmental stewards and help keep the ecosystem running healthy. Anybody can be an environmental steward by being aware and knowledgeable of the world around them and making sure they do as little as possible to negatively impact our world. Without these groups it would be hard to get any sort of sustainability in our increasingly technology, pollution, industrial based world.

- You must continue your weekly practice. We are a knowledge driven tradition - you must practice to learn how to master!

We also would love it if you remained active in the community online, so that we can work with you, and help guide others to you if you wish to mentor. This isn't a requirement, but a desire of ours and an important step in the growth of our tradition!

The IDGAF (I Don’t Give a Fuck) tradition is an eclectic, accessible, initiatory tradition of modern witchcraft. The name IDGAF (pronounced Id-gaf) is a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the inaccessibility and rigid structure of many modern witchcraft paths.
