The Fourth Great Rent – Preparation for and possible Implications of Humanity’s Imminent Opportunity

Headquarters Group

“A fourth great rent still remains to be made… This fourth major rent will
be made by humanity itself, standing with “massed intent,” focused through
the groups which are externalizations of the Ashrams of the Masters. It will
therefore be made at the time that the Hierarchy takes physical shape upon
the earth again.”

The Garment of God – Esoterically and Scientifically

Introductory remarks by Headquarters Group and presentation by
Dr. James T. Ryder

Science has begun an examination of the electrical nature of all phenomena in the lower worlds and its effects on human consciousness. This quest is penetrating the mystery of electricity which relates to the nature of the “garment of God”. We will be exploring what the terms – “electricity” and “the garment of God” – actually mean, along with the implications of the latest scientific research. Dr. Ryder is a retired Vice President of Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company and former head of the Advanced Technology Center.

An Esoteric Perspective on some of the Psychological Problems of

Michael Nagel

Esoteric psychology offers insights into some of the new, enigmatic psychological problems which the Tibetan predicted would occur as the race becomes more sensitive and as ever more potent energies descend on earth. Problems facing aspirants and disciples are also more difficult in this transition period. Michael will reflect on these concerns based on his private practice as a counsellor.


The Wesak Festival – The Moving Sanctuary

This festival marks the highpoint of the spiritual year when the energy of
Enlightened Purpose is transmitted by the Buddha at the time of the Taurus
full moon. This lighted energy can be used to create a spiritual refuge in our
consciousness which can warm those who need sanctuary and help. It can
provide a “Tower of Silence” for the lower self, as well as a place of entrance
into the “Secret Place of the Most High”.

Moving Onward within the Sound: The Importance of Esoteric Training

The SOUND, the first manifestation of the One Ineffable Existence, is the progenitor of all vibration in the universe. The Will of our Logos to manifest vibrates within the SOUND, and through a graded series of impressions, we too vibrate within Him. The immediate cycle sees this Will rapidly impacting the centre, humanity, bringing immense challenges and obstacles. Esoteric training holds the key to ‘working out that Will within the square’, and freeing humanity from the veils of illusion and the current impasse.
