12-Step Introduction to Golden Rosycross Philosophy
We are happy to announce that the "12-Step Introduction to the Golden Rosycross Philosophy" will be run once again every Monday from January 25th until April 19th on Zoom.

As the introduction is split into 12 sessions, we advise that you attend from the beginning if possible, in order to get the most benefit from the lessons and avoid confusion.
All sessions start at 8.00pm GMT (Dublin) and can be accessed on Zoom via the following link:

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, online meetings and group meetings in Dublin, Galway, Cork, Sligo and Scarriff, Co.Clare.
."We associate ourselves with various groups in this world because we have to test in practice the truth and correctness of our thoughts. Therefore there are a great many people who have already trodden many paths, who have spared no pains and made endless exertions before finally finding the Spiritual School. Be comforted, for all of them had to go this way.
The light-power injections from the spirit-spark atom, gazing into one’s own crystal, have to be continued until the purest possible thought image is created. In the Spiritual School you are actively helped in this process: day by day, hour after hour, efforts are being made to expound to you the ways and intentions of the Divine Sun, spelling them out for you word by word so to speak, so that you ultimately carry within you the mental image of immortal man as purely as possible."
- Jan Van Rijckenborgh, "The Coming New Man", pp. 34-35
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.
