‘Knowledge of Self’ – ‘NOSCE TE IPSUM

The fundamental objective of Gnosis is to form ‘real men and women’, to awaken our consciousness, to enable us to achieve our full potential and come out of a state of pain and suffering. The knowledge we seek is really inside us, thus Gnosis leads us ultimately to the supreme knowledge of ourselves.

The Gnostic Institute of Anthropology provides, free of charge, methods and systems for each of us to free ourselves from the afflictions of Humanity, and discover universal truths relating to realities beyond the three dimensional physical world. The mysteries of life and death, the laws of dharma and karma, re-incarnation, the secrets of ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, Aztecs, Druids etc. can be unlocked through the application of the Gnostic teachings.

The Institute

The Gnostic Institute of Anthropology, ‘G.I.A.’ is an international organisation, and in the U.K. is run as a registered charity.

The author of over 60 esoteric Gnostic books, V.M. Samael Aun Weor succeeds in modernizing the Eternal Gnosis by giving it a clear, didactic, and synthetic form. For 27 years, he fought with body and soul to spread this teaching, oversaw the expansion of Gnosis onto 5 continents and gave countless conferences to feed the souls of those who seek the lost wisdom. V.M. Samael Aun Weor disincarnated on December 24th, 1977.
