    Mostly, yes — except that the foundation of the Traditions was an effort to build conceptual bridges between the different Traditions' magicks; so a Chorister attempting to learn some alchemy from a Hermetic should face fewer problems than a Templar attempting to learn some alchemy from a Child of Knowledge. In both cases, the amount and type of overlap between the teacher's Focus and the student's Focus is about the same; but in the former case, they have the Hermetic-initiated “common language” to make the training easier.

    Ultimately though, I think this too might be something better handled in a separate thread.

      How would you envision changing from External Focus to Internal Focus within this idea, within the same Paradigm ? As an example I'm thinking of some Chorister Mages - at start they rely in their True Magick on items associated with faith, being in sacred places, and conducting ceremonies; but with time they come to know and feel that what they need to do is look within themselves and miracles (or what they call miracles) will happen.

        Changing between Internal and External is as drastic of a change as changing what your Practice is, and should be handled in a similar manner. In particular, the existing rules for switching between a Mystic Focus and a Technomantic Focus should provide the basics.
