Concept 10: Researched Author: Sir Godfrey Gregg GCO ROMC Grail Consciousness For lack of a better term, Grail Consciousness can be described as the mystical side of The Mystical Court.

CONCEPTS 9

Concept 9: Researched Author: Sir Godfrey Gregg GCO, ROMC Kairos - Time for Change Of all the Concepts of the previously Hidden Teachings of The Mystical Court, Kairos stands out as the most unique.

Concept 4: Researched Author: Sir Godfrey Gregg GCO, ROMC The Personal Transformation of Agagnorisis Anagnorisis refers to a very specific kind of personal transformation.

Concept 3: Researched Author: Sir Godfrey Gregg GCO, ROMC Aletheia, A More Comprehensive Understanding of Truth We translate the Greek word Aletheia into English simply as "truth."
