THE 'ORDER OF THE DRAGON' PODCAST IS PART OF THE 'TRIBAL KNOWLEDGE ACADEMY' NETWORK
DRACONIAN MYSTERY SCHOOL TEACHINGS
Johnathan and Dawn's organization, Tribal Knowledge Academy, recognizes the growing interest in Dragon mystery school knowledge. Since this type of knowledge is not readily available or accessible to the public, Johnathan and Dawn have developed podcasts, programs and courses that allow students and enthusiasts to explore the history, mythology, wisdom teachings, and energy of Dragons —among all other aspects dealing with ancestry, blood (types) and genetics.
Historically, the origins of the first ever established mystery school dates back to ancient Dilmun, where the 'Order of the Pheonix' was first conceptualized and begotten. Ever since then, the Dragon mystery schools have survived through the ages (via the Brotherhood of the Snake and other underground orders), by passing down sacred teachings from one generation to the next. Known as places of deep spiritual learning and metaphysical transformation, the Dragon mystery schools have been shrouded in myth and legend for centuries, with the teachings being highly secretive and preserved for the chosen few through little-known organizations.
Central to the teachings of the Dragon mystery schools, is the idea of the Dragon as a figure of transformation and spiritual awakening. Dragons are revered in many cultures as powerful symbols of strength, wisdom, and divine energy. The Dragon itself, is seen as a metaphor for energy, which lies dormant and can be awakened through spiritual practice.
Dragon mystery schools have been described as places where students are guided through a series of initiatory experiences (mainly through practical application of knowledge), designed to awaken their potential. These initiations are intense and life-changing, often involving physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges that push students to their limits. Just like the Pheonix, students of the profane mysteries, are said to undergo a process of death and rebirth, shedding their old selves and emerging as transformed individuals with a heightened sense of consciousness.
THE ORDER OF THE DRAGON
The Order of the Dragon (Latin: Societas Draconistarum, literally "Society of the Dragonists") was a chivalric order that was established in 1408 by the Bohemian king, Sigismund of Luxembourg. It was fashioned after the military orders of the Crusades.
The order was named after the Dragon, which was a symbol of protection and strength in Medieval times. The emblem of the Order was a dragon with its tail coiled around its neck, coupled with the motto "O Quam Misericors est Deus, Pius et Justus" (O How Merciful is God, Faithful and Just). The order's symbols consist of the ouroboros and the red cross, which were worn by its members.
The Prince of Wallachia Vlad II Dracul, the father of Vlad the Impaler, took his name from the Order of the Dragon. After its initial establishment, the order was overtaken by Vlad the Impaler. The prestigious emblem of the Order was retained on the coat of arms of several Hungarian noble families, including Báthory, Bocskai, Bethlen, Szathmáry, Benyovszky, Kende, and Rákóczi.
The members of the Order of the Dragon were required to take a solemn vow to protect and defend against those, who through pernicious deeds, threatened domestic peace. They also pledged to protect widows and orphans, support the poor, and give alms to the needy. The order was highly exclusive and prestigious, with membership being reserved for only the most noble and virtuous knights. The ranks for the order were chosen according to blood energy, meaning only those of very specific Dragon bloodlines were chosen.
Into this prestigious European chivalic institution, which was symbolized by the Dragon, was admitted the aspirant to the Wallachian throne, Vlad (Dracul) in February 1431, in his position of vassal of Sigismund of Luxemburg, according to the statute of the Order. Admission was into the superior class of the order. The symbol of this class evolved up to 1431 in two phases: the first one, as it has been reminded earlier, was a dragon with a cross drawn on his back, between its wings, from the base of the neck to its tail and lasted from 1408 to 1418; the second one, until the death of Sigismund of Luxembourg, was completed with another cross perpendicular to the coiled up dragon, having on the equal sides of the cross the writing 'O Quam Misericors est Deus' (vertical) and 'Justus et Paciens' (horizontal). This sign was worn on a sash, like in the portrait of Dichters Oswald von Wallenstein in 1432. The necklace of the order was made of two gold chains joined by the sign, a Hungarian cross with a double bar above the coiled up dragon. But on the seal, another dragon was represented, with a big body, with dented wings, not coiled, only two feet with a free tail, with a very small Greek cross on its chest. Sigismund of Luxembourg himself introduced in 1433, the seal for the Order of the Dragon of this type, one of the last seals he made as a Roman-German emperor. Unfortunately, the symbol that Vlad Dracul had, wasn't kept. One variation of the Order, consisted of a coat-of-arms that was carved from stone, and represented the Dragon attacking a lion, the readed snake, the Dragon, emerging victoriously from this battle, therefore illustrating metaphorically Psalm 90 ("You will step on lions and on vipers and walk over lion cubs and snakes"). This phrase's purpose was to symbolize the victory of Christianity and that of Vlad Dracul over his enemies. In this case, the Dragon was a benefic symbol, and the picture of Vlad with his name (Dracul, Draculea-Dracula) had a positive meaning which was only common in Wallachia during his reign.
Over five millennia of the Dragon's universal existence, its image and iconography went through many transformations. Up until the fifteenth century, it was known as a fabulous creature, sometimes with the head of a vulture, other times like the animal represented on the Order of the Dragon, with the body of a snake and the wings of a bat. Pre-fifteenth century European Dragon iconography was derived from a myriad of sources, including: Greek mythology (Dracon), Roman-Greek tradition, from Celtic mythology, and from various Oriental influences. During pre-Christian times, the Dragon had a beneficial meaning (often connected with fecundity), with the Dragon being depicted in folklore as the Universal symbol of knowledge, abundance, growth, and fertility, all the way up until the late Middle Ages. However, with the spread of clerical Christianity, it takes on a different role, and in the fifth century it becomes converted into a symbol of Satan, with sayings like "Draco Iste Significat Diabolum" (The Dragon Means the Devil).
The inversion of Dragon symbolism was perpetrated for socio-political reasons, but primarily due to the fact that the Cannanites bred into and took over many of the power houses of Europe. This was when Rome started persecuting the Dragons who were teaching the humans, as this was a direct threat to the power of the Roman corporation. During this period, much of the Roman influenced art began depicting the Dragon in a subdued and battered state. For example, the crutch of the Roman bishop often has a defeated and twisted dragon at its tip. Both St. Michael and St. George, whose cult began to spread from the Bizant during the eighth and throughout the tenth, and respectively eleventh centuries, defeated the Dragon physically in a fight. In Occidental heraldry, the physical strength of the dragon was said to have been in his head, but also in its big and strong tail, which in the nineteenth century was considered to be the main illustrative focal element of the Dragon. This is why the propaganda art put out by the Cannanite factions, features the head of the Dragon being pierced and the tail, subdued and controlled.
The legacy of the Order of the Dragon is still felt today. Many modern-day chivalric orders, such as the Order of the Garter and the Order of the Golden Fleece, were inspired by the Order of the Dragon. The dragon remains a popular symbol in modern times, appearing in popular culture and media such as the Game of Thrones series. The ideals of chivalry and loyalty continue to resonate with people today, and the legacy of the Order of the Dragon lives on.
OUR PHILOSOPHY, CURRICULUM, PRACTICES, & GOALS
The 'Order of the Dragon' such as the one Vlad II Dracul was apart of, was but one order, and it primarily consisted of the Red Dragons. Red Dragons are the O- blood type Dragons.
There are many other Dragon Orders in existence, the following of which are sorted by blood energy:
● Order of the Red Dragons: O-
● Order of the White Dragons: A-
● Order of the Black Dragons: B-
● Order of the Golden Dragons: AB-
Keeping these Dragon orders in mind, Johnathan and Dawn have established their own, all encompassing modern-day Dragon mystery school (Tribal Knowledge Academy) by integrating the wisdom of ALL the Dragon blood energies (aka all the Dragon Orders) and abiding by the philosophy grounded in the belief that each individual has the ability to awaken the full potential of their nature through the use and implementation of the various types of Dragon teachings by unraveling, revealing and encorporating that which has been esoterically coded. The term "esoteric" comes from the Greek word "esōterikos," which means "inner" or "secret." Esoteric knowledge, also known as arcane knowledge, is a term used to refer to the knowledge that is not readily available to the general public and is often shrouded in secrecy. This type of knowledge has been traditionally associated with mysticism, spirituality, and religion. This arcane knowledge is precisely what Johnathan and Dawn specialize in, and teach.
The curriculum of Tribal Knowledge Academy is designed to help individuals deepen their understanding of themselves and the world around them by offering a range of classes, courses, books, and workshops focused on topics such as energy work, spiritual healing, and shamanic procedures.
Central to the practices of Tribal Knowledge Academy is the cultivation of awareness and mindfulness, with the big focus being on the inner experience —particularly on how to enhance and maximize each individuals potential through advanced genetics studies, psychology and brain science —using the Kabbalistic approach. Both Johnathan and Dawn, teach individuals to develop a deep level of consciousness expansion by emphasizing the importance of self-inquiry and by encouraging individuals to explore the potential of their individual energies and motivations in order to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their place in the world. Tribal Knowledge Academy teaches that the process of integration and awakening revolves around the concept of self-determination, as well as the development of spiritual practices such as energetic invocation, light / gene code activation, and will-to-power directives.
The Tribal Knowledge Academy experience offers a unique approach to spiritual development, drawing on ancient wisdom traditions to help individuals deepen their understanding of themselves and the world around them. Through a curriculum focused on mindfulness, awareness, and self-inquiry, the school offers a path to personal growth and spiritual awakening for those seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and their place in the Universe by offering a compelling and transformative journey.
