Frequently Asked Questions



What does Dragon do?

Dragon brings magic to campaigning and conservation. We organise rituals for campaigns, promote and explore ecomagic, and act as a networking organisation for those work ecomagic. Some Dragons are involved with campaigning or conservation, while others focus on the magical aspect.

Over the years Dragon has sometimes been very active and at other times seems to slumber. At the time of writing Dragon appears to be awakening one more. Watch this space!

Why are we called 'Dragon'?

'The Dragon' is an ancient name for the energies of the Earth, and ley-lines are sometimes also called 'Dragon lines'. In the mythology of Europe Dragons

are closely related to serpents, which have always represented the dark, hidden power of the Earth.

When was Dragon founded?

Dragon was founded in London on July 18th, 1990. Our first campaign was to help save Oxleas Wood, which still thrives today. Dragon grew steadily over the early '90's, until we had a membership of over 300 and 13 local groups. By the mid '90's, ecomagic was being widely practiced at campaign sites all over Britain by a wide variety of people, many of whom were not Dragon 'members'. Ecomagic had grown beyond the scope of any 'membership' organization, and Dragon was becoming too much for a voluntary team to manage. We felt we could better to serve the ecomagic movement by sharpening our focus and becoming a networking group.
