Reincarnation, Neophyte Review, Vowel Sounds Open Class: Portland, 2 pm, Jan. 26

Omm-Sety

This month’s convocation in Portland will be packed with important exercises and information.  The convocation discourse will be a continuation of our reincarnation series. Next, we will review the second Neophyte Monograph. This is a review of some of the most foundational concepts in AMORC. So, this is a wonderful opportunity for new members and members who are returning to their studies after a long break.

Please read this post Why is Reincarnation Important to Study?

After a brief break, we will return for a short open class on the seven major Vowel Sounds.  This public class is excellent for friends who might be interested in AMORC. This was by far the most popular exercise at last Nov’s Alchemy Workshop.  Please bring a seeker you know. It should not disappoint.

REQUIRED READING: Why is Reincarnation Important to Study?

weighing.the.heart

Master Anjala took some time out to explain a very important mystical reality as the Rosicrucian Order AMORC has studied it, reincarnation. This is an important lesson that all our members should be acquainted it. Please read on:

This month we are continuing our ongoing discourse on Reincarnation. The next installment will be in Portland on Jan. 19.  This phenomena is extremely important to study, because our methods here are distinct, and get at the heart of what makes Rosicrucians students of spiritual science.

There are many theories of reincarnation, what is it and what laws, if any, govern a cosmic cycle of rebirth.

1.  A basic theory in Rosicrucian teachings is that the full panoply of human lives cannot be experienced in only one human life.  Your life as a city woman doesn’t include the insights of the life as a woman living in a jungle tribe.  Your life as a strong man doesn’t include the experiences of the life of a woman confined to a wheelchair for life, and so forth.

Video Discussion: Medieval Mysticism of the Monks, 2 pm, Jan 19

Heinrich_Suso_Gemälde_1601

For our upcoming online session, we will move back in time. Over the last few months, we have been looking at the works of the alchemists from the 1600s.  Now we will go back to the early part of the late Middle Ages, circa 1325. A Dominican monk by the name of Henry Suso, a follower of the German mystic Meister Eckhart, wrote a book called Das Buch Gennant Seuse which included a woodcut illustration known as the Horologium Sapientiae. We will examine an article from the Rosicrucian Forum, discuss the symbolism of this woodcut, and maybe learn a little bit more about the flavor of the mysticism of the time.

Rosicrucian Festival of Lights, Portland, 2 pm, Dec. 22

diwali-candlesPlease join us for our joyous end of the year winter solstice ceremony. All are welcome to this public ritual.

Parading solemnly with candles, we will acknowledge our part as creatures in the natural world with responsibility for spreading light in the spiritual world.

This ceremony must happen on or near the Winter Solstice, and only once.  This means if you miss it in Portland, it won’t be offered in Wilsonville.  This is a beautiful ceremony that aligns us with the tradition of welcoming greater daylight into the darker days of winter.

Orientation, Neophyte Forum, Initiations: Wilsonville, 2 pm, Dec. 8

Initiations.Temple.

This is another installment in our ongoing Neophyte review series. This will be perfect for some of the many new members we’ve been contacted by recently. These reviews are also good for existing members who could use a refresher.  All of AMORC teachings are laid out in the Neophyte degrees.

We will also hold Pronaos initiations for those members who have requested them.  Any member who attends three convocations in a year may make a written request to the Grand Counselor and receive an initiation.  The Pronaos initiations are a venerable rite that will increase your sense of purpose and bond with the Pronaos. It will help to strengthen our local egregore as we seek to rebuild our temple into a Chapter. Email  nwamorc.Donohue@gmail.com to request this induction.

In your future: Reincarnation Series Continues, Rosicrucian Festival of Lights

reincarnation.paitingDeja vu:  Reincarnations Series Returns Again [and Again and Again]

Last month we started a series of Experiments and Discourses on Reincarnation, and will continue these after upcoming Pronoas Initiations.

Reincarnation is taught in the monographs as a plausible event that a member is not supposed to believe in until an experiment yields proof to that member that reincarnation exists.  There are multiple exercises in the monographs to accomplish this, but in a Pronaos, we have the assistance of our Fraters and Sorors, their psychic talents and skills, to reveal more than is usual at home.  We use guided meditations, music, lights and other techniques to help members get insight into current and past incarnations.
