The Rosicrucian Order, AMORC is a global school; an educational, cultural and philosophical organization that offers time tested education on several important subjects that are essential for the attainment of health, happiness and peace.
The Order is not a religion; our members belong to the various religions of the World. We are a non-political, non-governmental mystical organization made up of men and women that are devoted to the study, investigation and practical application of natural and spiritual laws for their personal wellbeing and advancement of humanity.
Together, the rose and cross represent the experiences and challenges of a thoughtful life well lived. Thus, by our name and symbol we represent the ancient fraternity of Rosicrucians, perpetuating the true traditions of Rosicrucian movements from centuries past to the present day.
The Rosicrucian movement, of which the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, is the most prominent modern representative, has its roots in the mystery traditions, philosophy, and myths of ancient Egypt dating back to approximately 1500 BCE In antiquity the word “mystery” referred to a special gnosis, a secret wisdom.
Thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt select bodies or schools were formed to explore the mysteries of life and learn the secrets of this hidden wisdom.
Only sincere students, displaying a desire for knowledge and meeting certain tests were considered worthy of being inducted into these mysteries. Over the course of centuries these mystery schools added an initiatory dimension to the knowledge they transmitted.
English West Africa Administration
The Order was officially established in Nigeria in October 1933. The Rosicrucian Park which is situated in Calabar, serves as the Regional Administration for English speaking West Africa under the English Grand Lodge for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Because the Rosicrucian Order concerns itself primarily with Inner development, it will probably not attract much outer attention. Although Rosicrucians have been advertising in national magazines worldwide for over 75 years, they have traditionally kept a low profile for they do not believe in forcing their views on others
