Throughout history the Gnostics were accused of being dualists: those who saw the universe and mankind itself split between light and darkness, body and spirit. Were their enemies right, or did Gnosticism, as usual, buck any theological trend that adds to their uniqueness? We explore Gnostic Dualism through time and belief, adding yet to the enigma that is the Gnostic worldview. We also delve into other Gnostic theologies such as syncretism, mysticism, and more, and how they manifested across history — from the Valentinians to William Blake, from the Sethians to the Sufis — all to gain a comprehensive understanding of this forbidden faith and its dangerous spiritual tech known as Gnosis. And how it can help us today in this reality that is one big Fake News.

We take an alchemical examination of several classic texts in a search for hidden layers of meaning. These meanings are unlocked through a series of easy to follow steps, using a variety of steganographic and cryptographic techniques — as well as the insights of Gurdjieff and the Tao Te Ching. The message in fairy tales, Gnostic & Christian Gospels, and the works of Plato contain actual, undeniable information encoded into the texts ages ago. Their existence challenges everything we thought we knew about these texts, including our basic understanding of the Bible itself.

The Gnostic revival has ignited a resurgence of Gnostic Churches (and many misconceptions about them). One of the brightest flames is the Ecclesia Gnostica Mysteriorum, also known as the Gnostic Sanctuary — a place where spiritual pilgrims of all stripes can seek solace and nourishment for the soul. The church’s bishop has dedicated her life to the spread of religious individuality as well as the physical assistance to the downtrodden and sick. We take a voyage into this remarkable oasis and the true meaning of Gnostic sacraments, rituals and liturgy. We also focus on the exemplary and visionary life of the Gnostic Sanctuary’s Bishop, from her discovery of Gnosis to her commitment to shining the knowledge of the heart in the darkness of mere being. And we take a deeper look into the unique meaning and truth of Gnosis itself.

Despite abundant scholarship and debate, new research points that most of academia might have missed crucial revelations in the Gospel of Judas. This research reveals an even more enigmatic but profound Judas, especially when his gospel is related to Nag Hammadi texts like the Apocalypse of Peter or writings based on James the Just. We mine these gospels for startling insights that also provide the reality behind the canonical gospels and the arcane origins of both Gnosticism and Christianity. This all leads to a secret transmission of mystic knowledge that goes back to the beginnings of civilizations across the world.
