Hello everyone at the Gnostic Academy of Chicago! Classes will be held at the following location:

5817 N Ridge Ave

Chicago, IL 60660

We are conveniently located within ten minutes walking distance from the Bryn Mawr Red Line stop in Edgewater. Simply head west on Bryn Mawr then northwest on Ridge Ave (Route 14) for about four or five blocks. Our building is on the right, one of the last buildings before Ardmore Ave.

When you arrive at the front entrance, take the tall wooden side door around the garden to the right. We will have a sign present. Go down the small flight of stairs in the alley and knock on the door to the left. If you have trouble finding our location, you can call 1 (312)[masked], which is the number for the home owner. You may also press the door bell at the front entrance for "Vaskys" and someone will promptly come to direct you.

Classes will commence at 1:00 p.m. and consist of meditation sessions with an hour and a half lecture, with questions, answers and discussion at the end about the topic of the day.

Our practices are intended to introduce students to the real breadth and depth of this mystical knowledge: that which we acquire from our own internal, practical and conscious experience, facilitated through the ancient and long-lasting science of meditation. Practices are meant to help everyone settle before and after lecture, as well as impart an introductory approach to actualizing the knowledge presented during lectures.

If you have questions, feel free to write on our MeetUp discussion forum, or contact us at:

We look forward to meeting you!
