|1.15 pm||Talk: The Pursuit of Identity – Headquarters Group
The path of conscious unfoldment is, in effect, a search for identity – each newly discovered aspect of the “self”, in turn, becoming a subtle veil from behind which a new light beckons. Drawing us ever onward, this beautiful mystery is infinitely deep – its final resolution always one step beyond. If this were not so, the ultimate state of identification, no matter how sublime, would be a static one – a finality beyond which further revelation and expansion of awareness were impossible. But the truth is that the more progress that is made along the inner path of discovery, the more the mystery deepens – the more astounding are the revelations.
|Visualisation: The Lord of Harmony – Power to Reveal the Path|
|Panel: Revelation and Spiritual Darkness
“Revelation is always preceded by a time of spiritual darkness that provides the setting in which the new light may be seen. It is said that ‘it is in the dark that we know God’ – and it is a time when faith and persistence are rigorously tested.”
|4.00 pm||Waking up the Business World – Alexandra Hatfield
Can you bring spirituality into business and live in the business world as a disciple? Discipleship leaves no aspect of life unlived, and business is an aspect of human living. Alexandra Hatfield is a learning and Development Consultant at Corporate Training & Personal Development Companies. She introduces spiritual principles that can facilitate a more enlightened business culture infused with the spirit of right relationships – with surprising results.
Secrets of Water – Panel Discussion with Dominic Dibble and Mintze Van der Velde.
Dominic Dibble, Director of World Goodwill and a former student of chemistry and environmental philosophy, and Mintze Van der Velde, a theoretical physicist and secretary of the Lucis Trust in Geneva, discuss recent scientific revelations as to the properties of water. These revelations provide the beginnings of a fitting science for the Aquarian Age and understanding the deeper mysteries of water as a condensate of the universal aether.

|1.15 pm||Talk: The Light of the World – Revelation through the Group of World Servers – Headquarters Group
As the ajna centre of members of the New Group of World Servers comes into rapid alignment with the creative purpose of the Lord of the World, this group is “rushing forward upon a straight line with its one eye fixed upon the goal and beaming light”. Amongst other things, this light is preparing the way for the reappearance of the World Teacher.
The Occult Eye – Kerry Woodward
In the immediate future, when our planetary life is somewhat calmer, the whole subject of Vision and the registration by the eye of the inner worlds will receive an enormous impetus, and conditions—hitherto undreamed of—will be revealed. Man will enter into a new life and a higher era of understanding. The teaching concerning the iris of the eye is an indication of this.
|3.40 pm||Messiaen’s Music of Revelation – Music & talk by Simon Marlow. Olivier Messiaen had a deep relationship with holy texts which formed the heart of his music. His composition, “Theme and Variations” can be used to illumine the sequential incarnations of the Soul. The simple opening melody is overlaid, sometimes hidden, by a kaleidoscope of variations representing the Soul’s exploration of manifested existence. These steadily converge, culminating in a triumphant return to the simple melody of the Soul but with an added richness that can be intepreted as the transmutation of experience into the expression of love in the world.|
|~The Philosophy of Fire~
Agni Yoga: Revelations from the Fiery World – an illustrated talk by Ken Archer
Revelation has ever been associated with fire down the ages. Ken Archer, an art historian, examines this association with a particular focus on his long-term interest in Helena Roerich’s writings on Agni Yoga and Nicholas Roerich’s paintings on the same theme. He will also consider references to fire in other philosophies and depictions of fire in the creations of other artists.
