What we're about

We are a Gnostic community founded over 45 years ago. Our practice is based upon ancient Gnostic principles with timeless tools for inner transformation. We would like to meet people who are seeking a deeper spiritual path, one that unfolds principles for becoming more whole, psychologically and spiritually.

Our meet-up group in North San Diego County provides participants useful Gnostic methods for exploring inner truth, combating fear, and developing a deeper, conscious connection to their inner divine spark. Together, we will develop answers to some of the most important questions in life: what is our source? what is our nature? what is our potential? Through guided meditation we gain tools for dealing with inner fears, selfishness, and lack of understanding as well as expanding through love, joy, and awareness of the Inner Divine.

Our meditation is coupled with discussion of metaphysical principles, Gnostic mythology, and participation in sacred music. All are practiced in a joyful manner to probe our depths and find ways to unite the opposite energies within us. We also draw on the findings of the brilliant Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung to help us explore the inward parts of ourselves. Several Gnostic masters and teachers with years of experience, alternate in leading the meditations and discussions.

The Gnostic way leads to growth in your power over the contradictions and hardships of everyday life. Come join us and let the Light within you be magnified.

This week's topic, "Growing With a Master," emphasizes the need for the seeker to have a personal relationship with someone more advanced in Gnosis, someone who reflects the light, love, and wisdom of the divine. Working with a master forms a bridge between mortality and the infinite and ineffable divine and progressively realizes the seeker's potential for spiritual growth.

11:15 Meditation and Discussion. This week's topic, "Emanations of the Pleroma," discusses how we descended from several realms of being, with each higher, pre-mortal realm containing more divine and integrated aspects of ourselves. The meditation engages the symbol of the hypocephalos to explain how our goal is to unite the various layers of ourselves so that we can eventually become whole and at one with our divine source.

11:15 Meditation and Discussion. This week's topic, "The Gate of Immersion," details the expansive ways each Gnostic immersion serves as a key transition from mortal existence to the unfolding of divine life. Christ asking John the Baptist to immerse him is but one illustration of how death and birth and the integration of Christ and Sophia permit each immersion to transition our souls from one spiritual mode of existence to the next.
