Impressions of reading: "The keys to a new Freemasonry through the body" by F. Fouqueray

Franck Fouqueray is unquestionably a prominent figure in the Masonic landscape. Prolific author of popular Masonic works, business manager of a publishing house, creator of the Masonic site, his success arouses virulent reactions (see the reactions published on the site

An endearing personality, but considered commercial and upstart by some, Franck Fouqueray defends a tolerant, demanding and quality Freemasonry!

The title of his latest book announces two novelties: “keys” and a “new” Freemasonry!

By looking carefully, and if we understand that the concept of key can concern an "entry", the author invites us to take an interest in several entries:

- The creation of new Masonic rituals: it is not prohibited; every

time of new rituals appeared!

- Rediscover the “royal art” dear to René Guénon and Oswald Wirth

- Chinese thought (actually from Taoism although the name is not mentioned)

- Martial Arts

- Listening to the body and its use

- Sacred geometry

- Self-transformation abilities

- Humor

- nutrition needs to be rethought

- The meditation worth practicing.

Topics dear to the author:

- The devaluation of Masonic practice today

- Provocation

- Without forgetting, the glorification of the Egyptian rite!

A melancholic conclusion

Despite a very catchy title that promises a “new” Freemasonry, the author becomes realistic and questioning again, leaving the reader without an immediate solution: it is up to him to live in his heart of hearts this “new” Freemasonry!

All in all, Franck Fouqueray's book offers a reflection on Masonic practice! It is both an alert and also a lighting that some could qualify as "wokiste"!
