• Welcome to GnosticNYC

    We are a non-profit organization that works to promote the study and practice of Gnosticism in New York City and around the world.
  • Looking for something to strengthen your relationship to Gnosis? Watch our panel discussion for several suggested practices.
  • The mythos of Lovecraft is often an inspiration to Gnostics. This video series explores the weird universe of H. P. Lovecraft from a Gnostic point of view. (Artwork: Cthulhu Arises by SaintAlbans on DeviantArt)
  • What is Gnosis? Where did Gnosticism originate? This video series attempts to shed some light on this complicated topic.
