[3/17/20 THIS LIVE CEREMONY HAS BEEN CANCELED. SEE UPDATED CORONA VIRUS PRECAUTIONS HERE.  MEMBERS ARE ADVISED TO DO THE RITUAL AT HOME. SEE BELOW FOR INSTRUCTIONS]

This ceremony reminds us of how we humans are inseparable from nature, and how our bodies are constructed from the elements. Because it is a symbolic feast, we nibble on carefully chosen bits of food and drink. Afterward, however, we can share our favorite things with each other. Please bring to the social hour something healthy to eat or drink. And desserts can be both organic and healthy! Just saying! [ED NOTE: Social Hour portion of convocation has been canceled]

On this day, the start of Rosicrucian Year 3373 is celebrated, and also, those members who have allied themselves by Initiation into our Pronaos. If you are one of our new Initiates, make sure that you attend this ceremony in Portland as we will be giving you special recognition.

Spring Series on Rosicrucian Healing

ancient-healingRosicrucian Healing is the topic we are pursuing for the next two months. “Rosicrucian healing is not used solely for treating illnesses. It can be used equally to prevent illness from occurring and to maintain good health.” …there are two major categories of diseases: those which induce a fever, and those which do not. In the first of these cases, we give a negative treatment. In the second case, we need to give a positive treatment.”

This spring will learn, re-learn, and practice our skills in the following four ways:

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.

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.
