THE ESOTERIC ORDER OF DAGON
ABOUT THE ORDER
WHAT WE ARE:
The Esoteric Order of Dagon works with the Yog-Sothothery of H.P. Lovecraft and related areas and authors in mystical and magical ways. The Orders name is derived from the story 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth' (acronym SOI) written by H.P Lovecraft in November–December 1931. This story also outlines our alchemical path of inner development. Other influences for us is for example mythology, like the Apkallu/Abgal myths and what is written about the Sumerian god Enki( a.k.a Dagon), but also from Alchemy and other esoteric teachings, science and much more.
To us the Abyss or Abzu is viewed somewhat different than the popular view of it these days. In Sumerian and Akkadian mythology it referred to the primeval sea of freshwater that both gives life and cleanses at the same time. It represent (among other things) the dark and unexplored inner world. We swim in and explore those eternal astral waters of Father Dagon and Mother Hydra. Our explorations takes us trough the human dreamlands and beyond and eventually we move into the Greater Dream. There might be monsters lurking in some of those deep old places, but nothing really worth doing is without risks, right?
WHAT WE ARE NOT:
We are not connected to freemasonry in any way. In SOI it's clearly stated that E.O.D "soon came to be the greatest influence in the town, REPLACING Freemasonry altogether" with something else and the Church was replaced too. This rules out any interest for us in for example Thelema/O.T.O based systems and works inspired by that. There are allready plenty of individuals and some organizations using that approach and the world doesn't need another one.
The Esoteric Order of Dagon have instead decided to follow what Lovecraft wrote (quoted above) by the letter and work with this from a stranger angle.
The Order decided to become silent towards the Outer World back in 2012. From then the E.O.D haved operated in a way similar to how the A:.A works (sort of a “old member”-”new member” only relationship, at least from the start). But "What has risen may sink, and what has sunk may rise", so things might change in the future. Until we decide to rise from the depths and once again teach our Eldritch Lore to willing humans you are free to contact us at this
We do not actively seek new members. Members are expected to seek us out instead. Previous members that have lost contact with us for any reason but wants to rejoin have to resubmit a membership application.
