The last few months we have covered a lot of information about the psychic and physical bodies. Now let’s put them all together! Members do join us online on Sunday, March 28th, by going to the Rosicrucian Community page, looking on the events tab, upcoming events, and there you’ll find the Zoom meeting i.d. and passcode.
Until that time, we can chat on topics of metaphysical healing in this forum, while remembering not to be precise about monograph information in this public forum.
Sunday, February 21, 3:00 pm, we will be following up on our theme from last month’s look at the relationship between the physical and the psychic body, and their bearing on spiritual development. We will study an article introducing the role of the endocrine glands and the sympathetic nervous system as it relates to psychic consciousness and health.
The article for the month is titled “General Points on the Role of the Endocrine Glands” by Paul DuPont, MD, FRC and is found in the Rosicrucian Digest, Vol 97, Number 2, 2019. The article is an excerpt from the 2012 book, The Endocrine Glands and Your Health.
We will first focus on the introduction, then the section called ‘The Glands and the Sympathetic System’.
We also invite you to review your monographs on the subject of the psychic body, psychic centers and glands, and the sympathetic (also autonomic) nervous system. Building an understanding of their operations is very helpful for subsequent work in psychic development and Rosicrucian healing techniques. As always, we will welcome your participation in this fascinating and vital subject!
Join us this Sunday for a Zoom call to discuss these important topics!
Significant portions of our studies are devoted to the understanding of the psychic body, its faculties, and its role in our spiritual development. This is not without reason, as this understanding is foundational to much of the other work that we Rosicrucians pursue, which includes, but is not limited to, the development of the psychic centers, the practice of Rosicrucian healing techniques, and projection of the physic body.
An article titled ‘The Physical Body and The Psychic Body’ (Rosicrucian Forum, 1999, Vol. 69, No. 3) will set the stage for this month’s online session. This article presents Rosicrucian knowledge about the relationship between the physical and the psychic body and serves as a wonderful primer for further exploration into this subject.
We hope that you are able to find some time in the coming days to review your studies on this fascinating and important topic, to consider experiences you may have had as a result of your practice of the exercises offered in the lessons, and to even prepare some questions you may want to bring to the discussion.

This month’s article focus is on the article titled :‘Protect Yourself’. You can find it in the Rosicrucian Forum, no. 4, Vol 70, from the year 2000. Join us on Sunday, December 27th, at 3:00p.m., for a discussion of this topic.
Rosicrucian students of mysticism often ask how to maintain mental, emotional, and psychic safety, in a world where we are frequently bombarded with negativity that challenges our ability to remain grounded and disciplined Rosicrucian students. How does the Rosicrucian student stand firm in such an environment, without succumbing to despair? How can we avoid falling into similar behavior patterns that would only help to perpetuate the negativity we wish to rise above? What are some techniques we can use to maintain, or even bolster, our emotional and psychic defenses as we go about our daily work?
We invite you to consider these questions over the coming days. Take some time to consider what techniques, Rosicrucian and otherwise, that you would use to protect yourself. What can you do on all levels of your being to make yourself a more effective Rosicrucian student in your daily interaction with the world around you?
Best Wishes for Peace Profound,

We are all familiar with the word thought and its basic meaning. The terms thought and think are constant fixtures in our everyday speech indicating that thought is a critical faculty of our daily functioning. However, what do we know of its actual attributes, capabilities, and the implications of developing a profound ability to harness the power of thought?
For our September Zoom meeting we will read an article by Past Imperator Ralph M Lewis titled ‘Light and Thought Waves’ (Rosicrucian Forum, 1966, Vol 37 No 3). In this article, Fr. Lewis examines the principle of thought from the perspective of physics, namely speed and transmission rate. He contrasts thought with the known physical attributes of light and cites results from Rosicrucian research into the attributes of thought and thought transmission.
In preparation for our meeting, we invite you to reflect and meditate on the nature of thought. Some questions you may ask yourself are:
Is thought an energy? Can thought travel faster than light?
Does thought differ from light as understood in physics?
Are there space-time restrictions that thought itself may be subject to?
This session will be the first of a two-part series on the subject of thought. October will continue with a study of thought projection as examined by Past Imperator H. Spencer Lewis.
Best wishes for Peace Profound!
Join us by going to the Rosicrucian Community Event page and clicking on the Zoom link you’ll see there.
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:
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?
The 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.
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.
