The Western Mystery Traditions: Gnosticism

Gnosticism is another mystery tradition that involves the individual going within themselves to find the divine within. The individual seeks to find the path to wisdom by living a divine life. The original teachings of Christ were gnostic teachings and gnosticism itself is primarily a Christian belief system. They were suppressed along with many of the other mystery traditions in hopes that mass-control of the people would be more possible. Hopefully this short documentary will shed light on this misunderstood tradition.
