Gnosis Course in Vermont South
Introductory Talk on Gnosticism & its Universal Principles
Ongoing Course on Gnosis
Next Class: Thursday 27 May 2021
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 psychological and spiritual reality.
About Our Gnostic & Meditation Classes
The Gnostic knowledge is one that does not require you to practice some ancient belief system or religion. It is a contemporary tradition that aims at developing all of our human and spiritual possibilities. We study the wisdom of both east and west in a comprehensive, didactic way, unlike many other forms of spirituality that focuses on one specific tradition alone. The Gnostic classes present us with the study and the practice of a set of universal principles of self-discovery and inner development. Such principles are found in the philosophies, sciences, arts and spiritual traditions of human cultures throughout history.
Gnosis is a vast and profound science for actualising deep, lasting internal change. As we seek to demonstrate in our lectures, this knowledge has been present throughout all mystical traditions. We study the nature of the complete human being through a variety of perspectives and subjects, in addition with a wide variety of psychological, esoteric and mystical topics.
The outline of the course we offer is given below. It is a weekly course consisting of a lecture and meditation practice. Each lesson builds on each other to serve as a foundation for further study of esotericism. The practices aim to understand and build on the science and ethics of meditation in a more in-depth manner.
Anyone is welcome to attend. However, as the classes and practices build on one another, consistent weekly attendance is recommended. If you decide not to continue with the classes at any point, you are completely free to stop attending with no further obligations.
