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.

What is gnosis?

The word “Gnosis” is derived from the Greek language and means “knowledge gained through insight; the intuitive apprehension of spiritual truths.” Genuine Gnosis is an eternal, unchanging and universal knowledge that frees the soul from suffering, and 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 rather, within, and has been expressed throughout the course of history by all the world’s great saints and enlightened souls.


Gnosis is not a religion nor does it belong to any religious denomination. Gnosis does not belong to time or place; to culture, personality, age or race. it is the golden thread which leads us back to our divine origin, to our own, individual divinity…

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 are the costs to attend the center?

AGA is a non-for profit organization. Gnosis is not a business, and no person involved in the running of such a center is making money for his or her services. The public classes are offered freely. For those who continue on with the  weekly course, donations (sugg. $10/week/per person) are greatly appreciated to cover the costs of running the gnostic center: rent, utilities, printouts, etc.


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, occupation, etc. Having no monetary price set on them, the Gnostic teachings can thus be considered to be “free.”


This does not imply, however, 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.


The students who persist and persevere are the ones who see the real value in the knowledge.
