What we're about

Join us for meditation sessions and public lectures on the gnostic teachings, a practical, spiritual and scientific methodology for transforming suffering and acquiring personal knowledge of the divine.

Gnosis is the universal wisdom at the heart of all great religions and mystical traditions, and has manifested through innumerable teachers and spiritual guides. At the Gnostic Academy of Chicago, we study the nature of the complete human being through a variety of practices and subjects: gnosticism, meditation, consciousness, Buddhism, kabbalah, alchemy and tantra, yoga, self-transformation, alternative medicine, spiritual initiation, the tarot, astrology, dreams and astral projection, awakening, Kundalini and more.

Gnosis is a revolutionary mystical science aimed at the complete development of the human being. Gnosis is about acquiring direct experience of fundamental mystical truths, to know the mysteries of life and death for oneself, and goes far beyond intellectualism, speculations, beliefs or theories. What we seek to impart is the practical wisdom of how to change our life into something better, through the comprehensive didactic of self-knowledge, compassion and understanding.

These practical teachings are available to all people, regardless of language, culture, race or gender. We welcome people from all religions and denominations toward the study of actualizing our intimate potential.

Dream Yoga and Astral Travel 04 Where Do We Dream?

Online event

For all levels. Beginners welcome!

Topic: Dream Yoga and Astral Travel 04 Where Do We Dream?
Time: Nov. 13,[masked]:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

Despite its advancements, modern science still lacks essential knowledge regarding the processes of sleep and dreaming. Contrary to scientific theories, dreams do not originate from the physical brain since this is only one aspect of our entire psycho-biological and spiritual constitution. While science ignores where we go when we dream, ancient mystical traditions explain that the consciousness travels within the different dimensions of nature rather than remain in one’s physical body. Dreams are not merely activities of the brain but are living experiences within the internal worlds. Discover where we dream through a profound study of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life: a map of our multidimensional reality.

Online event

An in-person lecture with an online zoom option.

For all levels. Beginners welcome!

Topic: Dream Yoga and Astral Travel 05 Why Do We Dream?
Time: Dec. 18,[masked]:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

Identifying the causes of dreams is crucial for awakening consciousness within the internal worlds. Learn why dreams occur through a profound study of the Essence (soul), ego (defects), and personality (cultural identity). Dreams also occur due to different types of internal perceptions, known in some spiritual circles as imagination or clairvoyance. By comprehending why we dream, it becomes possible to modify our psychological states and to develop cognizance beyond its current limitations.
