Who we are and what we do:
The Edinburgh Study Group is a place to study and explore Sophian Gnosticism - a living mystical Christian tradition. The focus of our study group is the investigation of mystical Christianity from both a theoretical and practical perspective. We engage with various traditional and contemporary texts emerging from Christian, Gnostic and Jewish source-works. In addition to theory we strongly emphasis self-inquiry and personal experience. At the heart of all our investigations is the cultivation of a clear mind, a broad heart, and a deep personal relationship with the Divine through self-study, contemplation and meditation.
Currently the Edinburgh Study Group is meeting:
Wednesday (weekly) to discuss Tau Malachi's Christian Kabbalah book Gnosis of the Cosmic Christ
Friday (weekly) for meditation (theory and practice)
