Gnosis is a Greek word that is defined as knowledge but in essence is much more than
what is defined.
Gnosis can be described and intellectualized but to encapsulate its true meaning it can
only be experienced in one’s individual self.
Gnosis refers to a type of knowledge that we experience as opposed to knowledge that
we are told or simply believe in. Gnosis is a conscious, experiential knowledge, not
intellectual or conceptual knowledge, belief, or theory.
It is knowledge of the mysteries of the human being beyond the material world and the five senses. Gnosis explains the physical and
metaphysical phenomena regarding the Universe and man. Gnosis is knowledge enlightened by the Divine Mysteries and verifiable
through direct mystical experiences.
Every human being has the ability to investigate and to find answers to the questions relating to our existence and Gnosis is an
applied science that can help you do so. Today this great wisdom is finally revealed and given to us by the corresponding age we live
in and is no longer a secret teaching. Gnosis is a science and is the missing link that unites man with the divine. This knowledge is
inside each one of us as a hidden potential waiting to be unlocked.
Gnosis has been present and available under many names and with many faces, yet the principles always remain the same.
This is the same path taught by the awakened masters of all great traditions. There is Gnosis throughout the Christian Gospels and
also in the Buddhist doctrine, in the Tantric Buddhism from Tibet, in the Zen Buddhism from Japan, in the Chan Buddhism of China,
and in the Taoist teachings. Hinduism is rich with Gnostic stories, symbols and guidance. The wisdom of Kabbalah, the Tree of Life, is
absolutely Gnostic. Gnosis is found within the mysteries of Islam, Sufism, Whirling Dervishes, and in Egyptian, Persian, Chaldean,
Pythagorean, Greek, Aztec, Mayan, Inca, etc.
“Truth is something that must be directly experienced.”
