13 Lesson Introductory Course
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 behaviour, 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?
The Lectorium Rosicrucianum heartily invites you to join us for an Orientation course during which we would like to discuss together the above topics in more depth.
The Orientation course aims at helping seekers familiarize themselves with the Gnostic Principles of the Universal Teachings brought to mankind throughout the ages with the message:
“The higher form of human life, the life of true human dignity, does exist and can be lived and realized by everyone who so wishes. You know this life; you came away from it... But it is not of this world”.
The 13-lesson introductory course is available throughout the year. This course will make you familiar with the fundamental gnostic principles of the timeless and age-old Universal Wisdom and provides a deepened and widened perspective on ourselves, on the world and cosmos we live in and on the real task and goal of our life.
Each week you will receive a lesson which will be send to you by regular mail (on request) or email on Monday evening. The course will be finished with the course round-off offering a visual presentation where we will highlight and discuss in more depth and details all the practical and spiritual aspects of the work the Lectorium Rosicrucianum carries out in the world. This presentation will provide a proper perspective of the daily and spiritual practice of a member or pupil of the Lectorium Rosicrucianum.

Aim of the introductory course
The Teachings of the School of the Golden Rosycross aim at helping seekers find the answer to their spiritual quest based on their own state of consciousness and insight, in complete freedom and self-authority.
As such, no teacher stands between the seeker and the Gnosis. Neither are exams or tests demanded of them. However, as part of its structure and to better aid seekers, a series of face to face meetings will be held in Dublin, Galway and Cork where seekers will have the opportunity to meet with fellow course followers and pupils of the Lectorium Rosicrucianum. At these meetings we can explore together the subjects of the course or answer any questions about the Work of the Lectorium Rosicrucianum in general.
