Topics Covered In Our Esoteric Studies

This is a group for anyone interested in learning about Gnosis. “Gnosis” is a word that means “knowing”, so this is not a group that practices some ancient belief system or religion, but a contemporary tradition aimed at the development of all of our human possibilities through the study and practice of a set of universal principles of self-discovery and inner development found in the sciences, philosophies, arts and spiritual traditions of human cultures throughout history.

Putting these universal principles into action in our lives brings real, immediate and lasting positive change and a growing level of freedom and happiness that makes us more productive in every area of life: as family members, workers, students, citizens, partners, etc.

The below curriculum is a weekly course which spans the course of about a year, serving as a foundation for the further development of the study of esotericism and the science and ethics of meditation in a more in-depth manner.

Anyone is welcome to attend one; however, as the classes and practices build on one another, consistent weekly attendance is expected. If you decide not to continue on with the classes at any point, you are free to stop attending with no further obligations.

              Tragic is the existence of the one who dies without having known the purpose of one’s life. Each one of us must discover for ourselves the purpose of our own life…”
