Hello chris! In my opinion,I would read everything I could find the time to read. There is a good chance that ten years from now you won't be as interested in this text as you are today,but who's to say that one small piece of it will stick with you to later open a door that you couldn't have done so without it? (In my opinion) you've got to dig deep,especially at first. You may disregaurd half of what you come across, but you may find that one thing that relates to you and opens the next door. I think that would be more important than wondering how it relates to nag hammadi. How it relates to you and your path seems to be your goal,in my opinion! --- In gnosticism2@ yahoogroups. com, "chris_heading" <chris_heading@ ...> wrote:

> Does anyone know anything about this Gnostic movement? I haven't been able to find very much on it and wondered if anyone has studied it. It has a strong Gnostic basis similar to Nag Hammadi, but seem much more modern and human based in it's approach. It focuses a lot on choice and self-empowerment in steps towards transcendence and looks like it is shared in story/parable form interweaving various forms of gnosis.
