Gnosis is the underlying principles at the heart of every religion and mystical tradition. Gnosis is the profound study of the art, science, philosophy, and mysticism of Self-Realization. This science, through the ages, was known by various names, religious forms, and mystical orders and yet, the underlying principles are eternal and universal. An in depth analysis of all of the world's great traditions verify there is indeed a "perennial philosophy" that lies at the root of all of them.
These eternal principles of Self-Realization and the practical steps, the path, are what we seek to approach at our school. This group is for people looking for practical methods of awakening consciousness and authentic spirituality. Our school meets for lectures and practice in order to impart the eternal principles at the root of all the world's esoteric traditions. We seek genuine and direct experience and not theories or ideologies. We base our teachings on facts and strive to teach others not what to think, but rather how to think, how to analyze, and how to know reality for themselves. In these teachings, we do not seek fantasy, nor escape, but rather clear and profound analysis of the facts of life which is the beginning of meditation. Those who are only interested in intellectual concepts, philosophical debates, etc. may decide to look else where. This group is for people who are truly concerned about knowing reality and changing their life for the better.
