Current organisation of The Lectorium Rosicrucianum

Currently, the Lectorium Rosicrucianum has pupils and members in 36 countries, including most European countries, North and South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The head office of the international organization is located in Haarlem, the Netherlands.

After the death of the spiritual leaders Jan van Rijckenborgh (1968) and Catharose de Petri (1990), the Lectorium Rosicrucianum is now guided by an international board, the International Spiritual Directorate. It is supported by national directorates and advisory councils as well as many working groups.

The Lectorium Rosicrucianum is a non-profit organization. It is funded entirely by contributions and donations from pupils and members and has no economic interests. The monthly fees are kept at a minimum level. Entrance into the organization is possible after an orientation phase, by written request and a minimum age 18 years. Pupils and members receive the bi-monthly magazin „Pentagram“. If one decides to leave the LRC an informal letter is sufficient.

Conference locations and city centers

The International School of the Golden Rosycross operates sixty conference locations worldwide as meeting places for larger spiritual activities which take place on weekends. Administrations for the regions are usually located at these conference centers.

Foundations and Publishing Houses

Besides the organization of the International School of the Golden Rosycross, Lectorium Rosicrucianum, there are independent foundations active in several countries supporting the spread of Rosicrucian, Hermetic and Gnostic teachings. These foundations organize symposiums and lectures in co-operation with other spiritual organizations and experts from science, the arts and public life.

The literature of the founders of the Lectorium Rosicrucianum, as well as writings of other historical or current spiritual teachers are published by the School’s own publishing houses in many countries and languages.
