One question we hear a lot in Rosicrucian circles is, “Will AMORC be shutting down soon?” We heard some chatter about this at last month’s Spiritual Alchemy Workshop. The Grand Lodge continues to roll out new online tools for members, and the recent growth at the Enneadic Star Pronaos are good examples of how things are going well with the organization. Still, people often think that AMORC will be “going dark.” There are good reasons why. It comes from the belief that Rosicrucians transmit their teachings in cycles: going back and forth between active and inactive or underground eras.
Master Anjala decided to weigh in on the issue to give you the full story:
The Rosicrucian Order in the United States was established by H. Spencer Lewis in 1909. There is a MYSTICAL CYCLE of 108 years that some Fraters and Sorors have asked about for years. Isn’t the Order supposed to “Go Dark” in the USA for 108 years, starting in 2017? Why hasn’t that happened?
