Ageless Wisdom Teachings, Esoteric Studies and the Seven Rays
Friday, March 13 6:30 p.m.
As the dawning of the New Age is upon us, the study of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings is, again, a topic of inter est. Eso-teric knowledge, a descriptive account of the evolut ion of con-sciousness in man and nature, gives us the answers t o many questions: how did the universe come to exist? And wh at is man's role within it? Come and listen to an introduct ion to the "hidden" wisdom that the Spiritual Hierarchy shares w ith us, and learn about a great event about to happen. A bri ght future is within our midst.

This presentation by Sheldon Nile, an emissary of the Galactic Federation, explains this phenomena that is occurring for the first time in t he story of humanity, allowing us to understand what is happening to us physically, mentally, spiritually a nd also to Mother Earth—weather extremes, earthquakes, etc. This under standing will stretch your imagination and make it easier for all of us to cope with the strange things happening to us.
