Ceremonial magick is a branch of magick. Ceremonial magick, often abbreviated as CM, is a tradition inspired largely by Hermeticism and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. It includes, but is not limited to, Goetic magick, Enochian Magick, Tarot, Astrology, Grimoire magick, hermetic qabalah and Thelemic ritual.

Ceremonial magic is commonly considered the most complex form of magick. It utilizes elaborate magic theory, draws from a large body of literature and always uses ritual. Practitioners of CM often organize themselves in magical societies such as the Ordo Templi Orientis, Argenteum Astrum, Builders of the Adytum, or the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

Important influences on the tradition include Israel Regardie, Aleister Crowley, Dion Fortune, Eliphas Levi and Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa.
