Esoteric & Meditation Classes
The Oklahoma Gnosis Center offers classes for anyone interested in learning about the Gnostic tradition. Classes are held weekly, and begin with an introductory series open to the public. With each new week, a new theme is introduced. Themes start with the fundamentals, and continue on their progress towards the more esoteric.
“Gnosis” is a word that means “knowledge”. A very special kind of knowledge, that is acquired from direct experience and concerns the inner knowledge of a human being. The Gnostic knowledge is one that does not require the practice of an ancient or dogmatic belief system or religion. It is a contemporary tradition that aims at developing of all of our human and spiritual possibilities.
The first few themes are the most important, as these are the foundations of Gnosis which become the base of a student’s Gnostic work. The Gnostic classes present us with the study and practice of a set of universal principles of self-discovery and inner development. Such principles are found in the sciences, philosophies, arts and spiritual traditions of human cultures throughout history. By putting the previously-mentioned universal principles into action in our lives, one is able to generate real, immediate and lasting positive change, as well as a growing level of freedom and happiness. As a result, one becomes more conscious, practical and efficient in every area of life.
The curriculum listed below is offered as a weekly course. It serves as a foundation for further study of esotericism and 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 totally free to stop attending with no further obligations.
