What is the IDGAF Tradition?

What is IDGAF?

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. We are not a coven or a group, but a modern witchcraft tradition.

We realize that this name may give the impression that we are joking. Fear not, this is a serious and welcoming tradition.

We came to the conclusion that, in our experience, it was difficult to join an initiatory path that fit into our own beliefs - yet, so much pressure and expectation was put on to seekers to join a path with a formal initiatory structure. We found that many groups were unwilling to teach anyone who was not in their geographical area. We felt that it was unfair and exclusionary - spirituality should be for everyone. Teaching should be for everyone. Learning should be for everyone.

So one night, around the kitchen table, IDGAF was born.

Too much attention was being paid to how others were practicing their spiritual paths, too much bickering was had, and too many people fail to look inward and work on themselves. All of us, at one point, have said 'I don't give a fuck what so-and-so is doing, or what drama is going on, I just want to do my thing'. Saying 'I don't give a fuck' doesn't come from flippancy, it comes from a place of empowerment. It's throwing off the expectations of others, it's bypassing the drama and infighting, and coming to a place where we can all just celebrate what it means to be spiritual, whatever colour we choose to call it. When we recognize our own inherent power, we recognize that we can truly change the world!

Our members come from all walks of life, and carry different leanings and perspectives that we find helps to enrich the oral nature of our tradition. We have built a community meant to build each other up and bolster one another, and it shows in how our members approach their studies and other dedicants and initiates.
