Hello. Is there a way to get children started on gnosis? Would there be some guidelines for how to do this or any course material that covers this in any way or is this even recommended at all?
It is hard to watch my kids delve into their egos daily and and I know they are better situated to start on this path without the years of bad behavior behind them.
I am at the beginning of my studies here and have not come accross much on this topic. And it seems like a large enough challenge to get ones self headed in the right direction.

Thank you very much for everything!

Samael Aun Weor addresses pedagogy throughout his works, as he does here in Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: https://gnosticteachings.org/books-by-samael-aun-weor/fundamentals-of-gnostic-education/980-what-to-think-how-to-think.html

The fundaments of Self Observation and Self Remembering can be introduced to adults as well as children in the spirit of a game to give a taste of the flavor of the Work without intellectualizing. Example: Play the game, "Don't say the word 'I'. Another example: Deliberately change something that you do habitually. Etc. Having there be stakes to the game makes it more definitive.

We are also planning to create some texts for youth and parents to teach gnostic principles. We will see how this unfolds and will keep you posted! :)

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami

Wonderful! I really wish I had been exposed to these teachings as a child by parents who practiced. :)
