Title: The Tree of Life and the Holy Grail
Speaker: Sylvia Francke
Grail law is all about choice and the ideals of service and democracy. In this marvellous oration Sylvia (a grail researcher for over 20 years and author of the book The Tree of Life and the Holy Grail) examines the meaning of Grail Law in the context of Steiner's philosophies of esoteric christianity. This lecture also considers the relationship between Grail sites and sacred earth energies and the role of groups such as the Cathars and Templars.
Title: The Da Vinci Code Uncovered. Templars in Rosslyn
Speaker: Margot Daru Elliot
Margot looks at the work of Dan Brown in the context of him leaving us a series of clues that can enable each of us to unravel the mysteries of the Da Vinci Code. What clues do we have from the paintings of masters such as Leonardo Da Vinci about Grail Law, Jesus, Mary Magdeline, sacred geometry, the church and the historical and actual truth of biblical events? Is the Roman Catholic Church founded on a lie?
Title: Atlantis. The Truth
Speaker: Nigel Blair
In what represents the culmination of 25 years of research on this subject, Nigel states that around 12,000 years ago, a series of islands located in the Atlantic and possibly the size of France consisted of 10 kingdoms known as Atlantis. What happened to this civilisation that conquered much of the land around the Mediterranean? Were they the victims of the regular cycles of planetary catastrophe?
Title: Medieval Mysticism
Speaker: Anne Bancroft
In what is a fascinating lecture, the meaning of mysticism in the 11th, 12th and 13th century is defined and the commonalities between the teachings of Medieval Mystics and elements of Zen Buddhism and Hinduism are then discussed and compared to the tense relationship that existed between Medieval Mystics and the Christian Church which strove to suppress such teachings.
Title: Two Modern Mystics. Gurdjieff and Krishnamurti
Speaker: Anne Bancroft
A marvellous lecture in which Anne provides us with an insight in to the lives and teachings of two twentieth century mystics. It is said that Gurdjieff (1866-1949) liked to present his teachings in a complex way whilst Krishnamurti (1895-1986) adopted a very simple approach to the concept of self awareness. A marvellous oration that leaves the listener with much to ponder!
"Truth is a pathless land. Man cannot come to it through any organisation, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, nor through any philosophic knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection..." KrishnaMurti
"People don't do but just react. People must learn to really be and really do" Gurdjieff
Title: Life After Death
Speaker: Harry Johnson
It is only in recent Western European society that the existence of non-existence after death is considered. The concept of life after death and reincarnation is taken for granted by every other society. Harry gives an excellent lecture in which he presents analytical evidence for the continuation of life after death, a description of what happens after death and discusses the possibility that life after death is a life of the mind without the body and not subject to the physical nature of time. The totality of experience relates to the larger soul self and not the individuality expressed through a particular brain in any one lifetime spent physical form. The relationship between the soul and brain is also discussed.
Title: Working with the Invisible Guides of Humanity. The Masters Beyond Error and Illusion
Speaker: Carol Fraser
At the beginning of this fascinating lecture lasting nearly 3 hours, Carol presents the listener with a fundamental invocation that is an entrance to a spiritual path. How ready are we as individuals to work without illusion? If we aspire to connect and work with ascended masters and higher forces, we must learn to work in a spirit of truth so that we are not open to manipulation and deception. The work and role of ascended masters in guiding humanity towards ascension and the incorporation of the Christ consciousness in to ourselves, is discussed with special emphasis on the green, violet and golden streams of energy.
Title: Crop Circles. Gateways to New Worlds
Speaker: Stanley Messenger
What are the spiritual significance of crop circles? What is it that beings from other dimensions are trying to convey and is humanity grasping the concept of what is being asked of us? In a truly mesmerising lecture that includes channelled information from Steiner himself, Stanley describes how Planet Earth and humanity is in the process of taking a major evolutionary step forward, which for humanity involves thinking from the heart rather than with the intellect.
Title: UFO’s Mans Cosmic Test
Speaker: Nigel Blair
A well researched lecture suggesting that since 1947 levels of UFO activity around planet Earth has become more frequent. Why are Extra Terrestrials observing human activity with an increased level of interest? What are the spiritual and philosophical significance of the messages that we have already received and continue to be sent in the context of religious belief, the raising of the planetary vibration and the second coming of the Christ consciousness? During the course of this informative and exciting lecture many of the messages given to us by extra terrestrials are once again conveyed, raising more questions about the destiny of mankind.
Title: The Mystic Beatles. The Fab Four as Transmitters of the Perennial Philosophy
Speaker: Dean Carter
Dean presents the findings of his research in to the role of the Beatles as transmitters of the Perennial Philosophy. The talk begins with a summary of what is meant by the term 'Perennial Philosophy' before relating it to the spiritual development of the Beatles (in particular John and George) as portrayed through songs written prior to 1967.
