Anton Channing has practised meditation from 1985, began psychic training and tarot in 1990, converted from Catholicism for Paganism and Magick in 1992 and underwent simultaneous training in Natural Magic and Chaos Magic with two different groups from 1996. In late 2000 he wrote the manifesto for the Kaotic Illuminated Adepts, which was officially launched in early 2001.
In 2003 his book Kaos Hieroglyphica was published. Leaving Chaos Magic behind, but still greatly influenced by sorcerers such as Austin Osman Spare he formed a new group from the old KIA, which he called the KIA Illuminated Adepts. Like the orginal KIA this is a non hierarchical networking organisation rather than a magical order.
