The lineages of the Bishops within the UNIVERSAL GNOSTIC FELLOWSHIP are classified as being either Apostolic or Gnostic. Bishops, by whatever title they assume when consecrated, may elect to activate one or both lines of succession. The consecrating officers, by virtue of their own consecration, confer all of their lines of succession, the Essene Healing attunements and the Golden Temple empowerments. Recipients of these lines may activate either the attunements, empowerments or both.
Apostolic Lines of Succession - within the episcopate of the UGF
Gnostic Lines of Succession - within the episcopate of the UGF
Modern Essenes - healing attunements may be activated by the new bishop by contacting this group directly
Golden Temple Empowerments - attunements may be activated by the new bishop by contacting the Presiding Archbishop.
