The rediscovery of the Gnosis

Introduction

The enormous impulse from the Fama400-celebration still reverberates in the working-field of the modern rosycross in Southern Germany. Exhibitions, lectures, workshops, an appealing documentary and a resounding conference received a great deal of interest. The sum of these activities powerfully reinforces the connection of the modern rosycross with the ether- and energy-field of Christian Rosycross. Reflections from one of the 1700 participants allows us to see the scintillating certainty that the Light is an actual and specific reality in the here and now. We would also like to draw your attention to the metaphors of the island, the town, the Plan, and the matrix in this edition. There is also a universal message for our youth from Catharose de Petri, one written from deep insight, straight to the heart. And then one more image, an ancient one: the potter creates a vase out of clay, water and fire, however he is a master of the inner being.
