Fri. 5th, Sat. 6th & Sun. 7th October 2018
Sunday 14th October 2018 - 2:30 pm (Herts)
THE MEANING OF SYMBOLS
Symbols have been used all over the world since prehistoric times. They have given mankind the possibilities of counting and writing, as well as
conveying universal ideas and concepts through stone carvings and pictorial images. They are steeped in meaning and convey the Ancient wisdom teachings in a way
that transcends and unifies both history and social culture. In this talk and slide presentation we will explore and take an overview of some of the most powerful symbols from many different cultures, to bring out their expansive, universal meanings.
Berenice Benjelloun is an International Lecturer on Esoteric Numerology and the Tarot. She has co-authored the book 'The Spirit of the Tarot: Numbers as Initiators of the Major Arcana', with Claudine Aegeter. Berenice is a tutor at the Connaissance School of Numerology.

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED in ‘The Earth Experiment’?
Is the ‘Earth Experiment’ a weird conjecture or fancy theory? No. It is the sublime and ongoing brainwave of myriads of intelligent Minds of Superior Beings of Pure Energy. Their goal? To create a new physical world and experiment with manipulating that matter, simply by using the astoundingly creative Power of Minds! The Earth Experiment is the reason why you and I and all of Nature exist, in our individually chosen physical forms, in this particular new type of ‘Matter’. Have you ever wondered whether the experiment is open-ended? Have you asked yourself whether the Free Will of Earthly denizens – themselves Mind Energy beings too! – is a danger to other 'travellers'? Brigitte will help answer these questions and more.
In this talk, Brigitte shares her Masters’ channelled explanations of:
- How the meticulous planning, testing and balancing of every aspect of that new Universe (which was NOT the result of an illogical, random big bang explosion or ad hoc evolution!), meant yet another thrilling challenge in Creativity.
- How using visualisation and powerful Intent actualised the facets of an illusion... one that feels physical to those ensconced in it!
- How future explorers to that exhilarating world – our world – first design their own flesh vehicles (with five senses offering short-lived experiences), to fit their trip and aims.
Brigitte Rix is a Clairaudient Medium, spiritual teacher, inspirational public speaker and the author of five channelled books. For over 36 years she has been channelling knowledge from Higher Realms, via high speed ‘psycho-graphy’/automatic writing and clairaudience.
Her publications include:
1) Evidential communications from departed people: the channelled diaries – I’m Not Dead: I’m Alive without a Body (Vol.1 &2 so far) – give readers an insight into the adventures awaiting us beyond the grave.
2) Truths, Lies and Distortions, Worlds BEYOND the 'Spirit World' and HELP the EARTH HELP YOU to Survive imminent disasters contain cutting edge knowledge dictated by Advanced Masters from the higher dimensions.
Hailed as ‘The Afterlife French Lady’, Brigitte tours the UK to give lectures. She also teaches mediumship development. In Sept. 2015, she was invited as one of the speakers and workshop tutors (alongside well-known personalities and NDE survivors Anita Moorjani & USA neuro-surgeon Dr Eben Alexander), to the International Conference run by FINDHORN Spiritual Community (Theme: ‘We Do Not Die’ , Expanding Consciousness through Near-Death and other Mystical Experiences’).
Copies of Brigitte’s channelled books will be available at the meeting. More details can be found on her website

ENTERING THE INNER ASHRAM OF THE MASTERS
From the early days of Theosophy right through to the works of the Master DK, becoming a 'chela' in one of the Ashrams of the Masters has touched the hearts of all Theosophists around the world even to the present. Cyrus Ryan was involved in Group Work for over thirty years. The Group had been initiated by one of the Masters of Wisdom. The Masters wished to see what would happen to a group of Western aspirants subjected to various spiritual energies and events. The members of the group were given a word of power, and entered into a probationary period that would lead to the door of one of the Inner Ashrams of the Masters. The members were like guinea pigs in a maze trying to find their way, having been given a powerful tool and a partial map.
What did they learn? What does the aspirant of today have to do in our modern tech-crazed world to enter into the inner Ashram of the Masters? Cyrus will speak of his experiences of working in the group.
Cyrus Ryan started in Theosophy in 1975. His teacher was introduced to Theosophy when he was 15. His teacher later formed a group at the Toronto Lodge and Cyrus joined that group and began to explore many esoteric traditions and synthesize them looking for common themes. Cyrus’s book 'Living on the Inner Edge' talks about this and his travels and experiences in India and Tibet. His teaching is Theosophy but with a broad brush-stroke, including the work of the Master DK and Vajrayana Buddhism. The book comes out on December 14. There will be copies available at the meeting.
Cyrus has a website that will give an indication of the topics that will be discussed.
