ARCANE SCHOOL CONFERENCE, NEW YORK

Saturday May 17 and Sunday May 18, 2008

Williams Club, 24 East 39th Street (between Madison & Park), New York, New York

Keynote: When a human crisis and a hierarchical crisis coincide, an hour of opportunity emerges. Let the group respond.

At this time we are passing through a period of unprecedented opportunity and crisis, and the attention of the Hierarchy is consequently focussed upon men in an exceedingly one-pointed manner as They attempt to capitalise, for the benefit of man, upon this opportunity. Herein lies both responsibility and the ground for hope. (Alice A. Bailey)

"AWAKENING: THE SPIRITUAL OPPORTUNITY OF OUR TIME"

"To be alive now, and sensitive to the state of the world, is to realize that an old order is passing away. With every year of the new millennium, there are growing indications that a cycle of history is ending. Unfathomable as it may seem, we are actually in the midst of the Great Turning of the Ages that many religious and esoteric teachings have long predicted: the much anticipated moment when humanity will move out of an age of spiritual darkness and into an age of light." ( From the Introduction to When the Soul Awakens )
