As of January 2019, we are half way through an Introductory Course consisting of thirty three lectures with students who have attended the first half. New students who wish to attend classes are asked to be patient as we complete the current series and begin anew in late June/early July of 2019. New classes will once again be open to the public when we start the Introductory Course in June/July 2019. Look for updates here or watch for lecture announcements on MeetUp!
WHAT IS GNOSIS?
The word Gnosis is derived from the Greek language and means “knowledge of an intuitive nature; the intuitive apprehension of spiritual truths.” Gnosis is a knowledge that cannot be arrived at through books or lectures, but rather through one’s own direct experience. This knowledge or wisdom, therefore, is not found outside of us, but within ourselves.
WHERE CAN GNOSIS BE
In view of the fact that Gnostic Studies have progressed extraordinarily in recent years, no knowledgeable person of today will fall into the simplistic error, as in the past, of maintaining that Gnostic currents arise from some exclusive spiritual latitude, available only to the few.
WHAT DO THE GNOSTIC
TEACHINGS CONSIST OF?
The Gnostic teachings consist of a wide variety of esoteric disciplines, all of which are presented in a very practical manner. Gnosis is not just theoretical. Practices are given so that what is being learned can be verified, surpassing the boundaries of believing or disbelieving, since both lead to ignorance.
“Give Caesar what belongs to Caesar, give God what belongs to God, and give me what is mine.”

“The human society is the extension of the individual. Therefore, if we really want a radical change, if we want a better world, we need to change individually.”
– SAMAEL AUN WEOR
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
