Welcome to the Ecclesia Pistis Sophia -
Virginia Study Group website!
Our mission is to study the Sophian Gnostic tradition through study of scriptures, both canonical and gnostic, with a focus on the
teachings of Sophian Gnosticism and the writings of
Tau Malachi, Tau (teacher) and Lineage Holder
of this Christian, Kabbalistic tradition.
What is Sophian Gnosticism?
It is a Christian path to enlightenment through experience of the Living Christ Spirit that is within, around and ever beyond us. We are all meant to receive the Holy Spirit and embody this anointing, just as the disciples of Jesus who became apostles to many circles of the First Christians--
on fire with the Holy Spirit!
This is our calling and our Gospel Message to share with all who will listen, with all who are willing to open and receive the Fiery Intelligence from above. We have such grand potential to grow and actuallize the Divine Light in ourselves and in our world! And so we walk in beauty and holiness that the Kingdom of Heaven may be revealed on the face of this Good Earth.
His disciples said to him, "When will the kingdom come?"
Jesus said, "It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying 'here it is' or 'there it is.' Rather the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it."
Gospel of Thomas
Jesus speaks here of the need for us to labor in the world for the Kingdom of Heaven to manifest. It is a potential that awaits our work to actualize it in ourselves and around us. The labor is within each individual, changing our consciousness and our lives so that we walk here in remembrance of our true nature--divine nature, citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven. It is this embodiment of the Christ Spirit, in individuals and groups, and eventually the collective on our planet, that will manifest God's Kingdom on earth!
God bless you in your journey!
We meet every Sunday at 1:00 pm for discussion and worship.
At this time we are engaged
in studies of Tau Malachi's book,
Saint Mary Magdalene: Gnostic Tradition of the Holy Bride,
and readings from the Forum on the
Ecclesia Pistis Sophia website.
We gather in Fredericksburg, Virginia,
just 50 miles south of Washington, D.C.,
off Interstate 95. If you are interested in
