An Introduction to our philosophy

The Lectorium Rosicrucianum


There exists a golden thread, which leads us out of the labyrinth of our broken reality, towards the Truth. 

The Lectorium Rosicrucianum, or International School of the Golden Rosycross, aims to guide seekers find and develop a living connection with that shining filament, which is woven of universal Love, Wisdom, Knowledge (Gnosis) and action.

The Path of Transfiguration


This golden thread is a Path that can be actually walked throughout our life. A Path shown by all religions in their original form. No Master or Initiate can teach the Truth to another. It can only be approached through our own efforts, and by persevering throughout all obstacles and difficulties we may find on the way.

However, the Path can only be walked through a real inner process of transformation called ‘soul-rebirth’, or ‘transfiguration’. Otherwise, this Path could not be real.

The Divine Order


The I-centrered self, or the personality, will not have any profit from walking the Path of Transiguration if the trues intentions are to gain any power to enhance the self. Only the inner, Divine Self, which is awakened and enabled to become increasingly and strongly active (if the path is real) will be able to regain the lost Universal Light. The results of this process (when the path is real) is absolutely important for the personality, as well, for he or she will go through a concrete development of their life, will gain a wider knowledge and clear comprehension who they are and what the purpose of their life is. They also become a "worker" (a mason) on behalf of the Divine Self and the Divine Order, in the service of every human being, who suffers from "not knowing the Light".

Tradition of the Mystery Schools


The Lectorium Rosicrucianum is a contemporary organization, which the message is adapted to the strongly individualized human consciousness of the 21st. Century, although it possesses the fundamental roots of the ancient Mystery Schools. It has developed from of the earlier impulses of spiritual awakening, such as those of the Gnostics, Albigensians, Cathars and the classical Rosicrucians of the 17th century.

The International School of the Golden Rosycross - Lectorium Rosicrucianum - offers a method to gain inner knowledge and insight into the essential matters of life, therefore uncovering the answers to many fundamental questions.

Founders Jan van Rijckenborgh and Catharose de Petri transmitted a message that is consistent with the universal wisdom of all times.
