The Gnostic Academy of Chicago is dedicated to applying practical techniques for intense spiritual transformation. The best practice we use for this purpose is meditation.
Classes are held at Spring Yoga and Fitness Studio in Chicago's North Center.
Classes are scheduled for the third Saturday of the month. Meditation sessions and lectures begin and end promptly on time (from 3 to 5 p.m.). Please be sure to arrive five minutes early.
Meditation classes and lectures are free, although donations are welcome. We do not have membership dues, subscriptions, or "masters" of any given lineage to follow. Neither do you need to take any vows in order to participate.
For more information about what meditation is, see this article.
Along with our meditation sessions, we also provide instruction and lectures when possible.
Lectures are recorded and uploaded to our website: chicagognosis.org/courses, which you can access at your convenience. You can also listen to recordings of guided practices. Check them out to see if our teachings are a good fit for you.
