  • Hello!

    The Gnostic Academy of Chicago is dedicated to applying practical techniques for intense spiritual transformation. The best practice we use for this purpose is meditation.

    To accompany our introductory, weekday lecture series at the Edgebrook Public Library, we are offering free meditation classes at Messiah Lutheran Church (in Park Ridge) on Saturdays (from 4-5:30 p.m. on the first Saturday of the month; 3-4:30 p.m. for the following Saturdays).

    Our instructor has been teaching meditation for over ten years and leads retreats in numerous parts of the country, including a Tibetan Buddhist retreat center.

    Meditation classes are free, although donations are welcome. We do not have membership dues, subscriptions, or "masters" of any given lineage to follow. Neither do you need to take any vows in order to participate.

    Meditation begins promptly on time, so please arrive a few minutes early to be in your seat and receive brief instruction. 

    For more information on what meditation is and why we practice it, see this article.

    Meditation Instruction 

    We also provide meditation instruction and lectures when possible.

    Lectures are recorded and uploaded to our website:, which you can access at your convenience. Check them out to see if our teachings are a good fit for you.

    The lecture topic for today will be announced in advance  

    If you plan to attend our meditation classes at Messiah Lutheran Church in Park Ridge, you can be let in at the NE entrance facing Lutheran General Hospital. The door is locked and will be opened by our instructor.

    Have questions? Write to us!

    We hope to see you soon!
