Zoom Group: The Rose and Cross, 2 pm, June 21

rose.cross.dat.rosaThe symbol of the Rosicrucians is that of a rose in bloom set in the center of a golden cross. The meaning of our symbol is discussed more than once in our studies, however, it is always beneficial to have a return look at this eminent symbol and to reflect on the meaning it seeks to convey to us.

Zoom Discussion Group: Rosicrucian Teachings on Love, 2 pm, May 17

book.love

We hear a lot about love in the world around us that reveals a myriad of understandings about its nature, some superficial and others insightful. We as Rosicrucian students delve into the nature of Love in our Monographs and through our meditations quickly realize that it is much more than a mere emotion but rather a powerful Universal force that binds creation together in harmony and balance. We learn to feel its presence or lack thereof and also how to leverage this powerful force in our lives to bring about healing and harmony for ourselves, others, and the world around us.

Review of April Zoom Session on Water Glass Exercise

water.glassOur recent online group session consisted of a review of the highly important Rosicrucian exercise known as the magnetization of water, which can be found in the early stages of our monographs.

Fraters and Sorors who attended offered valuable insight about their experience with this potent exercise and it’s effectiveness in providing a sense of calm and a feeling of re-grounding as well as recharging and rebalancing effects. One Frater specifically addressed its great value when used as part of our practice of attuning with the Ègregore of the Order. A Soror also stated that one of its effective applications can be used for strengthening and protecting the body against environmental toxins.

Video Discussion: What is Meditation to the Mystic? 2 pm, March 15

Portrait-of-Pablo-Imani-on-location-in-the-Nile-at-Nubial-All-Rights-Reserved-The-Niles-New-Wave-768x430Join us for the next installment of our online video discussion group.  For this month’s online session we will look at a brief yet encouraging article from the Rosicrucian Forum about the art and practice of meditation. Meditation has ever been an indispensable part of the practice of the mystic and in particular the Rosicrucian student. Our monographs teach us the way of this technique, but can we ever really receive enough reminders to incorporate this art into our lives on a daily basis?

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

Online Discussion Group: The Mountain of the Adepts, Nov. 17, 2 pm

adept.image. copyNow in our third month, our new online group is a video discussion and meditation for members who are not in the Portland Metro Area.  The session lasts about 40 minutes. We will conduct a meditation, have a lecture and time for sharing and discussion.

This month: The Mountain of the Adepts

In 1616, an alchemical text was published entitled Cabala, Mirror of Art and Nature: in Alchemy whose authorship is attributed to the Tyrollian physician Steffan Michelspacher. The text dealt with alchemical self-transformation in the same vein as the Rosicrucian book, The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreuz, published the same year. This month’s Online Discussion Group will have a reading of an article discussing one of the alchemical illustrations found in this text known as the ‘Mountain of the Adepts’. Many Rosicrucian students may have seen this illustration from time to time, and this session will offer a chance to look deeper at the illustration and engage in discussion about it’s importance to the Great Work.

Please examine and come prepared to discuss this image.
