About the OHS
When we speak of the feminine spiritual experience, we're not talking about a women-only /men-only exoteric event. Rather, we mean the embracing of the principles of peace, compassion, and receptivity that have come to fall under the category of "feminine". This principle is beautifully put in the prayer of St. Elizabeth of the Trinity:
I will unite my soul with the Blessed Virgin when the Father overshadowed her, the Son took flesh in her, and the Holy Spirit descended to work the great mystery. May I become pure and perfect to enable God’s will to take form in me.
As Gnostics, our goal is not simply worship or servitude, but is to create an environment that will expand individual consciousness, promote realization and love through gnosis of divine Wisdom. Thus, we are active participants in our own salvation and in the liberation of the Light. As seekers, we have the teachings of the past from all times and cultures to guide us, for true gnosis knows no worldly bounds; but, moreover, we have our own hearts, our own sparks which emanated from the One True Light to guide us.
