“Real Gnosis is the experiential knowledge of the Soul, which is beyond theory, dogma or belief”
-Samael Aun Weor
Introduction To Gnosis
For those who are interested in meditation, awakening of consciousness, cultivation of an inner spiritual work, practical esotericism, transmutation of energies, esoteric psychology, the work upon the ego(false self), and the search for divinity within ourselves.
The Australian Gnostic Association of Melbourne is an esoteric school that offers classes and courses in esoteric studies. We hold as our basic foundation the knowledge of oneself as the way to penetrate into the mysteries of nature and the divine. The gnostic teachings offer classes and practices to assist the student to find their own self-gnosis, self knowledge, as a way to gain personal and intimate insight into their own spiritual and psychological reality.
“I looked in churches, mosques and temples, but I found the Divine within my heart.”
What Is Gnosis?
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.
A Universal Truth
Gnosis synthesizes the most essential aspects of all of the ancient mystery schools, religions, and esoteric systems of the past and present into one.
Authentic and true Gnosis is the root wisdom from which all authentic spiritual traditions emerge from.
Gnosis tears the veil of illusion, which is the veil of separation and division, by clearly demonstrating the golden thread that unites all human beings that which is the Truth, Love and Wisdom; the Divine spark within us.
Gnosis is a transcendental wisdom that explores a variety of topics based on psychology, mysticism and esotericism, presented through classes and meditation.
Our classes address both those who are new to these types of studies, and those who have more experience. We explore a variety of topics specifically developed to know ourselves more intimately and profoundly.
We introduce meditation techniques in a gentle and a gradual way according to a natural rhythm without causing any tension to the mind and body. This gives way to experience the benefits and insights that meditation can provide; therefore by establishing the correct foundations we are able to gradually and naturally increase the duration of the practices.
Gnosis is a practical and transcendental wisdom which anyone of good will and good heart can experience and benefit from, to live a more peaceful, serene life and to know oneself truly as a soul, as a divine spark.
