Geophilosophical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies (AGEAC)

The Geophilosophical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies is a humanistic, philosophical, and anthropological institution whose raison d’être is to investigate the cultural values immersed in the traditions, folklore, mythology, philosophy, art, customs, and beliefs of all people of antiquity, with the aim of extracting from them the principles and values that allow the modern man to live in a more conscious and intelligent way.

What is Geophilosophy

This transcendental philosophy, capable of granting man the keys of the intimate awakening to apprehend the great truths of life and death, is not exclusive to any people, any creed, any culture, since it has been present throughout the centuries in the four cardinal points of our world. This is the universal philosophy of Gaea, the goddess who represents Earth in Greek mythology, and from which the word Geo is derived. This is the universal philosophy of the Earth because it is present in all corners of this world and is not exclusive to any of its offshoots –the different cultures–.

Geophilosophy affirms that it is absurd to look outside for what man carries in his interior. Therefore, it agrees with Jung when he says: “He who looks outside, dreams. But, whoever looks inside, awakens.”

Many sacred texts tell us of the need to awaken, but none of them clearly explain how to do it.

Psychoanalytic anthropology is an essential science, together with philosophy, when it comes to deciphering questions like those of: Who are we? Why do we exist? Where do we come from? What is the meaning of life? That is the search of these studies.

The interest of this institution is to take its readers to ethical, psychic, social, and moral heights. That plenitude allows the human being to value himself from a higher point of view and, consequently, to value also his environment, his fellowmen, and life itself in all its manifestations.

One of the main goals of the institution is to edit works that cover all the issues inherent to the integral development of human beings and universal knowledge, many of them containing practices and exercises, based on anthropological, philosophical, and mystical investigations, that contribute to realizing the capacity to capture nature and the cosmos more objectively within man, as taught by the ancient disciplines of the great cultures of the past.

Among the numerous books written by the founder of Contemporary Gnosis, V.M. Samael Aun Weor, and the international coordinator of AGEAC, V.M. Kwen Khan Ku, books that have been translated into many languages across the globe, there are titles such as The Buddha’s Necklace, Fundamental Education, The Great Rebellion, Revolutionary Psychology, The Secret Doctrine of Anahuac, The Enigma of Dreams, The Gnostic Book of Meditation, The Fifth Gospel, and many more that will be waiting for you to explore at the International Food and Book Fair in Ottawa, at the Algonquin College Commons:  March 21st and 22nd and in the Horticulture Building: April 27th and 28th.
