Chapter Summary

This chapter shares some of the first-hand experiences with Dragon Rouge, and thus provides a more vivid insight into the actual practice of the magicians of the order. It analyzes a course on ceremonial magic in 2001, the opening of lodge Sinistra in Malmö, Sweden, also in 2001, and the initiation into the second initiatory degree of the order in 2004. The chapter discusses prominent trends in Dragon Rouge ritual practice. It outlines a generalized framework in which to situate the ethnographies. Dragon Rouge ritual practice is very diverse and varied, with the courses and meetings mainly functioning as introductions to themes and subjects that each individual member can explore more fully by themselves if they feel compelled to do so. The fragmentary nature of Dragon Rouge practice, with more or less abecedarian explorations of the most varied subjects, can partly be explained by the individualistic ethos of the order.
