What we're about

The BC Gnostic Centre is a community for the spiritual seeker of any faith who wishes to deepen their esoteric studies in theory and practice through the Gnostic teachings of VM Samael Aun Weor. This centre is a mystical 4th way school that was formed to aid those who strive to awaken their consciousness and transform their lives. We teach techniques and exercises that support individuals through meditation, dream yoga and mindfulness to live their own Gnosis, or revelation. As we come to know ourselves more, we come to know others, the world around us and the universe more deeply and intimately.

The term Gnosis is the root of the English word "knowledge," however it is not simply knowledge of an intellectual type. The word Gnosis has been used by varying philosophical or mystical groups throughout history, and it really refers to the Truth beyond philosophy, dogma, personality, or theory. Gnosis is "direct, experiential knowledge of the divine," or in other words, knowing for oneself..
To have Gnosis is to have one's own experience of the truth. Fire burns, gravity exists; these are truths that cannot be denied once experienced. Therefore, Gnosis is not built from spiritual fantasy; it is the platform from which we can see beyond our fantasy.
Gnosis can be expressed in theories and concepts, but it is neither the theory nor the concept. Gnosis is the intimate experience of the Truth as well as the path that takes us there.
"Gnosis lives in deeds, not in intellectual speculations, and is difficult to find even in the noblest of thoughts." - Gnostic Master, Samael Aun Weor

Clear the Mind, Purify the Heart - Gnostic Meditation

Link visible for attendees

When the mind is preoccupied, crowded and distracted, we are unable to live the moment, and life seems to pass by without our fullest and present participation. Thus, we miss the essence of much of life. The Gnostic teachings and meditation practices teach us how to clear our minds, purify our hearts and be in the moment, to live our lives in our essential nature. Brief discourse and then guided meditation, working with concentration, compassion and the subtle yet powerful mantra WU.

No experience required, just an open mind and an interest in meditation.

“When your mind is quiet, when your mind is in silence, then the new arrives.” -- Gnostic Master, Samael Aun Weor
