October 10-15 at Meditation Mount
The 2012 theme of the Wisdom Gathering is Group work, “Evolving human consciousness into its higher counterpart.” The purpose of the gathering is assisting Humanity to take initiation as a kingdom by coming together as one, invoking the New Thought-form Presentation of the Wisdom, and projecting the New Path of spiritual evolution. Our group intent is to put The Wisdom into service to humanity and the Divine Plan. This effort will utilize workshops, meditative focus, open discussion and techniques as presented by Lucille Cedercrans in The New Thoughtform Presentation of The Wisdom. We invite your participation.
The Seven Rays Seminar is set to kick off the first three days of the 2012 Wisdom Gathering. October 10-12 is a truly unique opportunity to meet with six of the world’s authorities on the seven rays; Michael Robbins, Olivia Hansen, Heidi Rose Robbins, Eva Marie Simonsen, Eva Smith and Kathy Newburn.
“All is Energy” and esoteric science and philosophy tell us there are seven essential types of energy that make up all that is – including all of us. These energies are the Seven Rays, and each ray energy has its unique qualities, strengths and weaknesses to transform into virtues.
Learning to apply the knowledge of the Seven Rays in our own lives is vitally important if we are to achieve our spiritual destiny, and it is an indispensable key to fulfilling the injunction of the Delphic Oracle, “Know Thyself”.
There are still spaces available for the Wisdom Gathering and the Seven Rays Seminar, register today!

Tomorrow, September 21, is the UN designated “International Day of Peace.” There are a few ways to take action in support of this day.
1. The Invocation Vigil
The 24 hours of September 21st are divided into 15 minute periods in every time zone on the planet. Every 15 minutes, in every time zone, groups and individuals from around the world will use an Invocation for Peace and for the values needed to create cultures of peace. Will you or your group commit yourself to spend specific 15 minute periods in prayer or meditation for a culture of peace and goodwill – beginning and ending the period with a sounding of the Great Invocation, or the Peace Invocation ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’, or an invocation or prayer for world peace of your choice? Imagine the rhythmic pulse of invocation flowing from around the globe every 15 minutes. Please add the radiations of your mind and heart to this Global Vigil of Invocation, Meditation and Prayer in support of International Day of Peace, 2012. For more information and to sign up for the International Day of Peace Invocation Vigil, click here.
2. One minute of Silence at Noon
To support this Day on a spiritual level, there will this year be a wide variety of initiatives for silence, meditation and prayer. The UN continues its important focus, inviting the people of the world to observe a minute of silence at 12 noon local time, setting up a wave of silence beginning in New Zealand and flowing around the world to end in Samoa almost 48 hours later. A range of movements are collaborating for the first time with the vision of co-creating the Largest Globally-Synchronized Meditation and Prayer for Peace in human history : Be the Peace. This includes events around the world as well as three global attunements at 4:00 AM and 4:00 PM GMT on the 21st and 4:00 AM GMT on the 22nd.

As you stroll through the International Garden of Peace, just past the lily pond, nestled at the edge of the grassy view point you will find the Bench of Dreams. This bench was hand crafted by Ramon Byrne out of 1,200 year old growth Douglas Fir reclaimed from the Ventura-Ojai rail line in honor of one of the Mount’s most beloved visitors, Dr. Robert Muller. Muller is well known for over 40 years of outstanding work with the United Nations in areas such as economics and the environment, world peace and spirituality. He was forever optimistic and a prolific writer, also known for spontaneously playing “Ode to Joy” on the harmonica!
The original Bench of Dreams is located at the base of Mt. Rasur, Costa Rica, which is a place where dreams have a way of simply manifesting into reality. Next to the bench is the small indigenous farmhouse where Robert Muller wrote his “2000 Dreams and Ideas for the Year 2000.” At present, and prior to the year 2000, over one hundred of his dreams have been fulfilled!
Visitors of Meditation Mount are invited to experience our Bench of Dreams. Dr. Muller suggests that you place a pebble or stone in each hand, press the two hands together, and with eyes closed – dream of something good for the world. When opening the eyes, one stone is thrown onto the Earth, so that the sacred Earth will remember the dream, and the other stone is taken home as a reminder of the dream.
Robert Muller passed at the age of 87 in September 2010. In his physical absence, we give attention and gratitude to Robert’s dreams by creating the Bench of Dreams at Meditation Mount.
You can find Muller’s “Most of All They Taught Me Happiness,” first published in 1978, for purchase in the Meditation Mount Tea Room. There are limited copies signed by Muller himself. Meditation Mount also carries “Prophet: The Hatmaker’s Son: The Life of Robert Muller” by Douglas Gillies.
This weekend one of our guests happened to be Dan Hashemi, a professional photographer visiting from Toronto, Canada with his family. He shared this beautiful image of a Summer sunset from the View Point in the International Garden of Peace. Click the image to enlarge.
