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.
WHERE CAN GNOSIS BE FOUND?
In view of the fact that Gnostic Studies have progressed extraordinarily in recent years, no knowledgeable person of today will fall into the simplistic error, as in the past, of maintaining that Gnostic currents arise from some exclusive spiritual latitude, available only to the few.
WHAT DO THE GNOSTIC TEACHINGS CONSIST OF?
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 human society is the extension of the individual. Therefore, if we really want a radical change, if we want a better world, we need to change individually.”
