I live in Chicago and I saw a reply to another poster by a Gnostic instructor saying that instruction takes place daily at retreats. I want to, just informationally at this time, explore into the possibility of moving close to a permanent Gnostic retreat site. If I do this, it would be with the intention to be able to receive more regularly, so as to make Gnosis a bigger part of my life in that way and to do more to facilitate soul growth, spiritual progress, and elimination of the ego. I am at a distant phase of merely initiating to explore this possibility right now, and I want to start with these questions, please:
Please tell me, are there any other permanent Gnostic retreat sites in existence besides the one I've heard of in Nebraska?
Is the location in Nebraska affiliated with this here Gnostic organization, please?
The Gnostic teacher I've been receiving lessons from so far here in Chicago tells me, and most proudly, that all of the missionaries who reside permanently in Nebraska are Mexican and that they do not speak much English. I am about to get certified in TEFL, (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), which would also qualify me to teach ESL (English as a Second Language) courses. I had this flash idea as in, what if I were to help teach the Mexicans in Nebraska some English.
These are all idea-related thoughts of mine at this stage, and I am sharing them as such, as part of this general informational inquiry of mine, and I do not yet know at this stage what is actually possible for my meager monetary capacity.
Thank you in advance for your reply.
