Zoom Group: St. Francis of Assisi, 2 pm, August 23

Grand Lodge organizes terrific trips around the world that relate to topics that are sacred, Rosicrucian and mystical.  In 2019, AMORC offered an epic trip through Italy and Sicily, tracing some of the great spiritual movements (The Eleusinian mysteries, the Essenes, Early Christianity and others).  At least 20 wonderful sites were covered.  

On August 23rd, from 2 – 3 pm, join us for a slide show presentation on Sacred Lessons from Assisi.  

Please read or listen to the Rosicrucian Digest issue article about St. Francis of Assisi before joining the Zoom meeting. A link to that article follows:

Zoom Group: Entering the Silence, 2 pm, July 26

empty-gothic-building-hallway

This month’s Zoom group has moved July 26 (the fourth Sunday).

Most of us are familiar with the term ‘Entering the Silence’ which has often been used in the context of meditative and self-help practices. This term can be taken to mean different things, however, what does it mean to the Rosicrucian mystic? In this month’s Zoom Group, we will discuss an article written by past Imperator Ralph M. Lewis that examines what this term really means for the Rosicrucian student’s mystical practice.  What is mystical solitude?  You can read this article in the Forum Vol. 89 Number 2, 2019  (Please read this article before the meeting.)  Forums are available online in the member’s only section.

We invite you to consider the various contexts in which you have heard this term and also what this term means to your work as a Rosicrucian student.  Does this apply to meditation, or does it apply only to silent retreats?  Or both?  Any other meanings?  Are there health benefits to Entering the Silence?

A Message from the Rosicrucian Grand Lodge During This Time of Anxiety Amid Corona Virus Concerns

“Refuse to give in to the thought that the world is dangerous and that God’s people are evil.”

Lonnie C. Edwards, MD of the Rosicrucian Grand Lodge in San Jose offers up a  meditation to unlock our Inner Resources and guide us from fear or anxiety we may be feeling towards calmness, serenity, and acceptance.

Edwards assures us that “humanity is evolving rapidly, despite what you see in the news.” He says that the key is “right thought and right perception,” and that we as Rosicrucian initiates strive to “see and hear as God sees and hears.” In the end, the problems rest with how you perceive reality and what you chose to do.

We hope this message will inspire you and still concerns that even during times of crisis all is well with the Cosmic. We have only to tap into it.

ENCORE EDITION: Video Discussion: Medieval Mysticism of the Monks, 2 pm, Feb 16

Heinrich_Suso_Gemälde_1601

This month, we are doing an encore edition of last month’s discussion on medieval mysticism for those who could not attend in January.  See below for last month’s description of the event:

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.

Video Discussion: The Gnostic Mary, 2 pm, Dec. 15

maria.cropJoin us for the next installment of our new online video discussion group.  This group is live and for members only. If you wish to participate, email us your member number and we will invite you to the event.  You must have a good internet, a laptop with a camera, and a set of headphones with a mic.

In 1617, Michael Maier’s Symbola Aureae Mensae was published with the frontispiece illustration known as Maria Prophetissa. In this illustration, Maria Prophetissa, who may also be known as the Maria of the Gnostic tradition, draws our attention to the alchemical process which appears to be coming to fruition before our eyes. This illustration is robust with alchemical symbolism. For this December’s online discussion group, we will read from an article that examines the symbolism found here in greater detail and learn some of what Maria seeks to impart to us. – Frater Ken, Online Discussion Host

For those of you who might be interested, here are some email excerpts from Master Anjala’s recent Rosicrucian tour of Sacred Italy. This was a three- week trip sponsored by AMORC that was attended by dozens and dozens of Rosicrucians.  (AMORC sponsors tours in different mystical places throughout the world. Next year’s tour to Egypt (and maybe Morocco?) will be in August and people are already signing up.) 

Enjoy!

August 19

I’ve been on a Rosicrucian tour of Sacred Italy since August 9th. Since then I’ve traveled to Assisi, Tivoli, Rome, Assisi again, Venice, Florence, and today I’m in Napoli (aka Naples).  So Many Misadventures!  So Many Pasta meals!  So Many Macedon deserts (read fruit salad, usually with cocomele (watermelon) naranja (orange, sometimes blood orange), kiwi, pineapple, and apple.  Variations on that theme.  So many sights! Macedonia was a Balkan country conquered by the Romans (Italians) in the 2nd century BC, and somehow the country name for fruit salad persists centuries later.)

Improve your Rosicrucian Skills: Take the Convocation Challenge!

rosicrucian-egyptian-museum-Rosicrucian-Park-1080x810We challenge you to attend six Enneadic Star Pronaos Convocations and events each year. Sign up now via Meetup and plan for it. We can help.

This year we’ve had several great events that have moved us toward our three-year goal of growing our Pronaos into a Chapter.  As you may know, that goal means that we need to consistently have at least three Convocations and events a year that attract 30 AMORC members or more. 

Once we have achieved that goal, we will be able to better serve, initiate, and educate you, the members.  There will be fancier rituals, class review forums, events for children of members, and other resources. Attending Convocation is the fastest way to advance in your studies and get results with experiments. The more members who attend, the stronger the rituals and experiments are. With over 300 members in the Pacific Northwest, that seems achievable.  [If you live in the Seattle area, please attend Michael Maier Pronaos events and Convocations].

Attending convocation will also earn you discounts and other benefits, for example, if you have attended Convocation this year, you will get 20% off on the upcoming Spiritual Alchemy workshop this November.
