Magical Work of the Soul

A talk by Sarah McKechie, President of the Lucis Trust

The event was sponsored by Alternatives at the
St. James's Church 197 Picadilly, London W1J 9LL
on Monday, February 2 2004, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


The spiritual path is one of cycles of growth and destruction, of rebuilding followed again by disruption, until the magical work of the soul, the higher self, effects a transformation of the personality. Through a balanced practice of meditation, the study of spiritual texts, and service to humanity, a higher and more stable spiritual vibration can supersede these cycles of ebb and flow. Sarah will be talking about how this magical power of the soul can be grasped and steadily manifested in our lives as an increasing power to serve through love-wisdom and skill in action. She will draw upon the timeless spiritual principles and techniques by which the soul works its magic as presented in the writings of Alice A. Bailey.
