“Open mindedness, unity, respect, free thinking, sharing, teaching, non-dictative, generational, traditional, in person rituals, and worship. But most of all-acknowledgement of Satan as a real sentient being. Devil worship and devotion. And, this is the Brotherhood of Satan.”
As you may have read from my last post (if you haven’t read it, I recommend going back to read it first), I have dropped titles such as Theistic Satanist and Theistic Satanism and no longer support anything titling as such. All my reasons stated in my previous blog post. I will always remain a devil worshipper by definition, and as mentioned earlier, there is only one traditional (theistic) organization I associated with and always have. The Brotherhood of Satan have proven themselves time-over to be the only generational Satanic coven who practice Satanism in the real offline world. They conduct seasonal Sabbat rituals, teach, and hold workshops at the in person festivals held four times per year. They are an established organization rooted in the Unites States of America, but its membership has branched out into Canada and parts of Europe. I have found the Brotherhood dating back to the 1970s, but, according to its elders, based on journal logs and other records kept, it had originated further back. What I love about the Brotherhood of Satan is that they do not proselytize as other groups and individuals trying to be Satanic leaders do. The Brotherhood of Satan has always been underground, keeping to themselves but always leaving windows open here and there for sincere seekers of the path to find.
By all means I am not posting this to try to get readers to join the Brotherhood of Satan. As a loyal supporter and member, I wish to debunk misconceptions some seedy individuals, who know nothing about the Brotherhood, have been planting. Also, because; many come to me inquiring who are the best legit Satanic groups, organizations, or covens to join. My reply always remains the same. Make sure that Satanism is the right path for you. Ask yourself these three questions:
- Why do you want to be a Satanist?
- Who is Satan to You?
- What do you wish to accomplish by being part of a group or coven?
If the answers are anything along the lines of:
- To become the best person I can be.
- Satan is real! He is a sentient being, the true god of this world, the god I feel most drawn to, etc.
- I wish to learn from established Satanists. I want to grow and expand my knowledge of Satanism and magic/witchcraft within the unity of a Satanic Family. I want to be a part of a Satanic/Occult family of unique individuals who have my back and respect me as I do for them. I also want to bring my skills to the Satanic family, helping the organization as a whole to expand and grow.
I always proceed by advising to look into the Brotherhood of Satan.
The Brotherhood of Satan is the ONLY Satanic organization that DOES NOT dictate Satanism. The Brotherhood of Satan encourages members to learn everything they can from ALL sources. Even though the Brotherhood of Satan is an organization, a coven, and a close niched Satanic family, they acknowledge that each Satanist is individual. The Brotherhood encourages individuality while still being united as a whole. The Brotherhood of Satan is also the ONLY Satanic organization that I have found to be ZERO ELITISM amongst the group. They DO NOT DISCRIMINATE and ARE NOT RACISTS. The Brotherhood of Satan is the ONLY Satanic organization where ego is in check. And is the ONLY Satanic organization where each member is treated equally and with the utmost respect. They are the ONLY Satanic organization that practices 100% of what they claim. The Brotherhood is also the ONLY group of Satanists who have been in practice offline since its conception.
The Brotherhood of Satan, as it now stands, has been a working organization for 20 years now. However, the organization has been in existence for many years prior. I can firsthand say that this organization holds the best interest of its members in hand. The Brotherhood’s elders and teachers are not authoritarian. They are well educated; in the occult sciences, witchcraft, religion, and history, not to mention hold a plethora of practical experience.
As you may know, I am a scholar and occultist. I have been in league with the Devil for over 35 years, and I have seen it all when it comes to Satanism. The internet, is filled with profiteers, charlatans, users, abusers, and false information. All of whom are exploiting the name of Satan and using Satanism to conduct either scam or to build their egos with no regard for you. Some of these same “Satanists” have mocked the Brotherhood, pointing out the Brotherhood’s claim to Freemasonry, Knights of Templar, Rosicrucians, Traditional Witchcraft, and being generational to be bogus. Those saying that the Brotherhood is sensationalizing and making false claims obviously haven’t done any research into the Brotherhood of Satan, nor have they even bothered to ask the Brotherhood about these claims. I will set it straight here and now- Founders and elders of the Brotherhood are indeed initiated into Freemasonry. AHP Druwydion Pendragon, Magister Magnus and one of the Master Counselors of the Brotherhood, is one year shy of receiving the final accomplishment in Freemasonry. All Rosicrucians may be or are Masons, but not all Masons can become Rosicrucians. The Brotherhood of Satan does incorporate elements of each of these Orders into its cauldron. I have seen these elements within their workings. My roots lie within the Traditional Witchcraft of the British Isles, and I also hold a strong interest in American Traditional Craft. Yes, indeed; as a folkloric trad witch, I confirm that the Brotherhood does practice; and bring in both elements of Traditional Witchcraft, American and European. The Brotherhood of Satan; do actually practice and teach Satanic Witchcraft, which is something none of these other individuals and groups do or know for that matter. Generational Satanism, Yes! The Brotherhood’s members children have grown up within the coven, attending Sabbat rituals and workshops etc. But, a child, is never forced to become a member. Initiation happens when the child is of adult age; and fully understands. A member’s offspring must choose for themselves if they wish to initiate. From what I have witnessed, many have. In recent weeks, the Brotherhood has posted images of member’s grown children willingly being initiated. Some of these adult children are now teachers within the coven, and others have recently handfasted (married) by the Brotherhood coven. The Brotherhood’s teachings are shared from generation to generation by word of mouth. So yes, this is a generational coven and organization.
THE BROTHERHOOD OF SATAN IS THE REAL DEAL!
*Proper Satanism can be divided into two groups. One being philisophical, consisting of The Church of Satan and Sect of the Horned God, and the other being The Brotherhood of Satan. The Temple of Set omitted only, because they are Setian and fall into a category of their own. Every other Satanic online organization or coven are poor attempts for either profit or popularity. They dictate how you should believe and how you should or shouldn’t practice. They are nothing but mere shades of the above mentioned three (four if you wish to count the Temple of Set). The Brotherhood of Satan is the ONLY theistic Satanic organization I will stand behind 100% and associate myself and my name. The Brotherhood of Satan teaches Satanic truth. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this organization to anyone seeking an authentic Traditional Satanism group/coven.
HAIL SATAN! HAIL THE BROTHERHOOD!
*Anyone interested in attending the next Sabbat event open to nonmembers or seeking further information about the Brotherhood of Satan, please take note of the contact information provided in the below images or drop an email found on the website linked above. Get to meet and know the Brotherhood of Satan for yourself and be the judge. I always say that the proof is in the pudding.
