about Gnosis

 

Doctrine of the Synthesis

Gnosis is called the ‘Doctrine of the Synthesis,’ since it synthesizes the most essential aspects of all of the ancient mystery schools, religions, and esoteric systems of the past and present into one doctrine. Yet Gnosis is not a derivative of any one of these systems. Gnosis predates all religions and systems, and is not the property of any individual or group.

The word Gnosis is derived from the Greek language and means “knowledge of an intuitive nature; the intuitive apprehension of spiritual truths.” Gnosis is a knowledge that cannot be arrived at through books or lectures, but rather through one’s own direct experience. This knowledge or wisdom, therefore, is not found outside of us, but within ourselves.

Origins of the Teachings

Gnosis today is the modern form of an ancient system of learning which has existed through the history of man’s presence on Earth. This wisdom was not available to the public, but was revealed only to those who been initiated into the mysteries.

The Gnostic teachings, as taught in Gnostic Centers throughout the world today, comes from the writings and practices of a modern day teacher, Samael Aun Weor, who synthesized the precepts of the philosophers, mystics, and adepts of all times into an integrated and comprehensive system of knowledge and instruction. Gnosis, as unveiled by Samael Aun Weor, contains a synthesis of all the ancient mystery schools. The contemporary Gnostic Movement has spread rapidly since it began in the 1950’s in Columbia. Gnostic centers can be found in many countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa.

    Objectives

    The mission of Gnosticism in this day and age is to deliver the method and means for the work of the realization of the inner Man in each one of us; the attainment of this transcendental objective depends on our cooperation with the Being.

    The divorce between science, art, philosophy and mysticism has provoked the deterioration of this civilization. Thus, we do not appreciate the poetry of nature, the harmony that emanates from the universe, and even human relations have become cold: for this reason our heart is unmoved by human suffering.

    That is why the Gnostic teachings proposes in its theoretical-practical program of study the communion between science, art, philosophy and mysticism as the only way of rescuing the highest values of the human being, because without ethical values life would be completely empty, without transcendence, and without the realization of the profound inner Being.

    This is possible by developing the superior emotion that makes science more human, art more sublime, philosophy more intuitive and mysticism more objective.

    Gnosis is therefore the light of science, the art of what is beautiful and good, and the love of wisdom, the mystical eternal spring.

    COSTS

    The Gnostic Centers throughout the world are non-profit organizations, relying solely on voluntary participant donations. The Gnostic goal is the happiness of all human beings without distinction. The aim of all centers is to share Gnosis with anyone who is interested, regardless of race, sex, religious background, occupations, etc. The Gnostic teachings can thus be considered to be “free” having no monetary price set on them. However, this does not imply that the teachings are superficial, or not of value. The fruits of Gnosis are acquired through the efforts of each student. The more one puts into studying, understanding, and practicing the teachings, the greater will be the fruits of one's efforts. Students who persist and persevere are the ones who see the value in the knowledge.

    commitment to the classes

    As far as attendance to the public classes, anyone is welcome to attend one, several or all of the classes being offered. For those who are interested, classes will continue on a weekly basis, and will go deeper into the topics introduced. Since the classes and practices build on each other, consistent weekly attendance is expected for those who decide to continue. If you decide you do not want to continue with the classes at any point in time, you are free to do so with no further obligations. If we do not hear from you, you will not hear from us. This is done to respect your privacy.

    What should be expected? 

    The Gnostic teachings consist of a wide variety of esoteric disciplines, all of which are presented in a very practical manner. Gnosis is not just theoretical. Practices are given so that what is being learned can be verified, surpassing the boundaries of believing or disbelieving, since both lead to ignorance. 

     
     
    The hour has arrived to abandon theories and go directly to what is practical.
