Samael Aun Weor Cult

Is the gnostic teacher Samael Aun Weor actually a cult leader who harms people with false ideology?

Yes. The Samaelians fulfill all criteria for being a really dangerous destructive cult.Cult Information and Family Support: “22. This group presents itself as a benign cultural "educational" meditation group, but behind this mask their main objective is to recruit more members to be part of their bizarre occult rituals and the worship of Samael.”
Cult Education Forum: When the outcome of an organization is that several of its students end up getting absolutely alienated from society, in several cases living in mental hospitals, unable to have any social life beyond the organization... that's NOT GNOSTIC AT ALL.
Semenal Gnosis: Samael Aun Weor’s Sex Cult: This paranoia, and focus on inter-group betrayals and “dark forces” working against the group from without, has continued on for today’s disciples of Aun Weor.

They also aren’t Gnostics like they claim: Samael is a name on Satan or an alias for Yaldabaoth his father in Gnostic mythology. That name is evil, but the guy Victor Gomez Rodriguez calling himself “Samael Aun Weor”, was more like a depraved ineffectual moron. The point of being a Gnostic is that the truth is buried within you, not provided by an authoritarian hierarchy teaching balderdash like the so called Gnostic Movement.

Non-Historical Gnostic

Samael Aun Weor, whose parents called him Victor Manuel Gomez Rodriguez, (1917-1977).

Samael Aun Weor and his brand of gnosticism (which is apparently not related at all to historical gnosticism)

Samael Aun Weor is not very well known among the English speaking world because he books are only recently being published in a widely available manner.

Has anyone here either confirmed or debunked Samael Aun Weor's work? He seems like another cult leader from the 60s mind control movement.

Yeah I’m not a fan of Samael Aun Weor.

Another infamous con man

Cult Leader...Not a Fan

Does he have any correct information on the sexual alchemy though? Whether he was a con man or not, is his points on sexual alchemy correct ?

false prophet. very devious man.

Unfortunately many of the Gnostic churches are under his brand... especially here in Australia.

 it's very sad

Alarm bells ring like a spidey sense everytime I hear that name.. Which is weird as I know nothing of this person.... Apparently I was right


  1. Oh my goodness... you have not a clue as to what Samael Aun Weor is about... or the new gnostic movement... it is simply a synthesis of the mystical or gnostic teachings from all the different cultures and civilazations that were solar cultures... ie cultures of wisdom... You are misguided and over simplifying in a weak attempt to discredit rich and helpful teachings... Not at all a "depraved ineffectual moron"... anyone who might read his writings will see that! The way he has synthesized the secret teachings of the ages might not resonate with everyone, which is fine, but to slander, as you are, is a great discredit to your work here... and, of course, to your own path of self-realization... a bit lacking here indeed.

    1. I know enough to stay far away from his cult they only want people for money

    2. I have a very good childhood friend that has been "sucked in" this cult. He left to follow his "master" and travelled all across the world. He is now lost somewhere, broke, cut from his family and completely out of this mind. This is a dangerous cult, watch out!

  2. And, I, brethren, was not able to speak to you as to those who are spiritual, but as to those who are carnal - even as to babes in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, and not meat; for you were not yet able to receive spiritual meat; and neither are you able now, for you are still carnal. For since envy and contention and divisions are among you, are you not carnal? . . . (1Corinthians 3:1 - 3, HBFV throughout).

  3. I saw an entire colection of unethical activity in this organization, totaly against the ETHICAL principles that Gnosis has !!! Well, that's ok because the COVID 19 was actually released to conclude the total Karma of those who mitigate the Gnostic Teachings. The former AGEAC organisation is one of them and the most noticeable one !

  4. Nothing more than slander and smearing.

  5. I will say that since my husband has entered Gnosis it has divided us rather than make us closer! I truly believe these teachings are false especially when he talks about not being able to reach orgasm or ejaculate even with your life partner!

  6. This idiot is claiming "The point of being a Gnostic is that the truth is buried within you, not provided by an authoritarian hierarchy teaching balderdash like the so called Gnostic Movement."
    Is he totally unaware of the ancient gnostics' teachings? What he is claiming goes directly against the simple fact that gnostic authors wrote and taught their teachings.
    Furthermore, what he is saying about Samael Aun Weor is downright libel and slander. Samael was very much against libertianian sex and sexual depravity in general, but you have to read Samael's own words to be aware of that.

  7. I had an ex-girlfriend who got sucked into this. She was talking about aliens, and how sex was bad, BUT HER TEACHER WAS GOING TO SHOW HER THE "RIGHT" WAY to have sex. What a nice guy, huh?

    1. Sorry to hear this! I'm an ex member of this cult. There are many separate organizations that are based on his teachings, I'm curious what city this was in. I'm working with some other former members to expose this group, and any information helps us work on our platforms.

  8. I'm an ex member of this cult, I was in for about 10 years and was on the missionary track. It is absolutely a dangerous and brainwashing cult. The control everything you do, including your sexuality. There's a strict rule that you're never supposed to orgasm or ejaculate, and it completely destroys people's minds. They present you with a version of reality that is incredibly twisted, where it's hard to know what is real . I've seen suicide, sexual assault, massive adultery, horrible racism, anti-semitism, antigay and the whole thing is built on misogyny. Tell everyone you know to stay far away, take it from me. I lost a decade of my life to this.
