INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF THE GOLDEN ROSYCROSS
Due to the current restrictions related to COVID-19 we have made the decision not to hold physical meetings for the remainder of 2020. We apologize for this inconvenience.
However, we are pleased to announce that a 12-Step Introductory Course will once again be run weekly on Zoom starting September 7th until November 23rd. This course will provide you with the opportunity to learn about the foundations of Rosicrucian philosophy and a chance to ask any questions you may have regarding the topics covered.
The course will conclude with a PowerPoint presentation and introduction to membership and pupilship within the School of Golden Rosycross. Course attendants will have the option to join online conferences and temple services to further acquaint themselves with the School.

Furthermore, we will hold monthly public talks on Zoom in a series called "The Sign of the Times" which will cover topics relevant to current world events. These will be run from September 22nd until December 14th.
The Soul in Lockdown
September 22, 8 p.m.
Since the dawn of its existence, humankind sees itself buffetted on the wild ocean of life and so it ventures through culture periods, alternating war with peace, conflict with harmony, health with illness. Our present-day times mirror these conditions and no matter in which direction you look, you’ll find them. The COVID-19 pandemic is having an immense impact on all aspects of our life. Facemasks highlight the fact that we can no longer identify with our outer appearance and can invite us to take a U-turn and look inwards - at our inner countenance which has for aeons been locked down in our being. It’s the Immortal Soul that knocks on the door of your heart.
We wholeheartedly invite you to explore with us ourselves, our times and the deeper nature of our quest to get out of lockdown.
Please note that none of the meetings will be recorded in order to create a safe space for those attending. As a courtesy to fellow participants, please join the meetings on time if possible.
We sincerely hope to see you there!
The scope of this website is to disseminate information and literature for those seeking to know more about the Rosicrucians and their spiritual path.
The International School of the Golden Rosycross is a gnostic spiritual school whose aim is to teach the original Christian initiation path of transfiguration. These teachings are based on a practical spiritual path that is followed in order to awaken the divine spark within man, the divine nucleus that the Rosicrucians refer to as the “Rose of the heart”.
We offer online courses, community forum, online meetings and group meetings in Dublin, Galway, Cork, Sligo and Scarriff Co.Clare.
"It is essential fo remembrance to be aroused in mankind because without it there can be no yearning for a return. When remembrance has been aroused the conditions in which we exist in our present life have to be examined. With the help of aroused remembrance, we must arrive at an objective comparison between what exists now and what was once and must be again. When a new, clear insight has been achieved, fundamental change can be decided on, and in this firm basis building can be started and initiation awaited."
- "Elementary Philosophy of the Modern Rosycross", pg. 57

Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going?
Humanity increasingly finds itself living in a time of unparalleled, revolutionary upheaval, unaware of the underlying micro- and macrocosmic, planetary and atmospheric influences propelling and accelerating these cosmic changes. Anyone can determine for themselves the extent of these changes as they become ever more tangible before our senses.
Many wonder what kind of world we live in and why life in this world cannot be, as perceived inwardly, a life of high human dignity?
What is the significance of this time for the individual and for the spiritual development of humanity in general? On the one hand, we see a decline and degeneration of norms, values and behavior, on the other hand, an ever increasing urge for unity, freedom and truth confronts us from all sides. What are the possibilities available and on what should our choices and attitude towards each other and the world be based?
From 2018 we will provide online meeting support for participants. This should greatly benefit seekers who are unable to travel long distances to our regular meetings.
What is Gnosis?
Religious secret knowledge, search for divine knowledge – these are some of the thoughts that are associated with the word Gnosis. But what does it mean to experience gnosis inside oneself? To find out, you have to turn to the source from which Gnosis rises.
Gnosis and Gnostics in European intellectual history are usually associated with early Christianity. However, there have been Gnostics at all times. For the Gnosis – the divine knowledge – has always been and still is a force that can communicate directly to each person, regardless of religious systems and traditions.
The quest for life’s meaning.
Why do human beings exist? What is the real purpose of human life?
Perhaps you are no longer satisfied by the conventional answers to these questions,and feel driven by a very deep-seated inner urge to find some indefinable, missing 'something.' Perhaps you give it a name -- you say you want to find out who you really are, or you want to experience conscious union with God, or you want to become a more loving human being -- a source of healing in the world -- or you want to find inner peace, and lasting happiness.
