We are a
Gnostic School

The New Zealand Gnostic Society

The New Zealand Gnostic Society is a school that specialises in teaching universal Gnosticism, which includes meditation, esoteric yoga, consciousness, psychology, self-transformation, esoteric anatomy, the Hebraic Kabbalah, alchemy, sacred sexuality or tantra, Kundalini, clairvoyance, psychic powers, dream yoga, astral projection, spiritual initiation, tarot, runes, astrology, Buddhism, and other spiritual subjects.

Our approach to spirituality is comprehensive and includes teachings from both Eastern and Western traditions, rather than focusing on just one specific religion. We seek to help individuals transform their consciousness and achieve a reunion with divinity while also working towards the alleviation of suffering for all beings. Through our lectures and practical exercises, students learn to identify, understand, and intuitively recognize the universal thread connecting all religions, which is the experiential wisdom of an awakened consciousness.

What is an
Esoteric School?

An esoteric school is a place of learning that teaches specialised knowledge and experiences that are hidden or not commonly known by society.

This type of school caters to those who have a sincere interest in learning about the mysteries of life and seeks to initiate them into the practical realisation of this knowledge. An esoteric school not only teaches the traditions and lineage of knowledge passed down by spiritual masters, but also provides the practical methods for achieving spiritual realisation and revelation.

It is through a deep understanding of this inherited knowledge that an esoteric school maintains itself and adapts to better serve humanity. At the heart of an esoteric school is a love for the light and for humanity, as it is through the light that we can better serve and help others.

The ultimate goal of a true esoteric school is to provide a clear path back to the divine origin of humanity.
