If there are obstacles, not 'the infinite

If you can count, not the stars

If you tremble or shake, and not 'a mountain

If increases or decreases, is not 'an ocean

If it passes over the bridges, not 'a river

If you can 'grasp, and not' the rainbow

Here are the parables of the six external perceptions

Shamballa School Third Phase

E-mail Print PDF

Bruce Lyon

It is with a sense of embodied spiritual thrill that we announce the unfolding of the third phase of Shamballa School as a being.

The first phase expressed through the initiation of the school in 2000 after a call to Mt Kailas and the grounding of an esoteric centre at Highden in NZ. This phase lasted nine years and included the transmission of several books in collaboration between Bruce Lyon and the Master DK. This period formed the seed crystal of the essential teachings and transmissions of the school.

The second phase was another nine year cycle that experimented with taking these teachings into the world in various ways, linking with other traditions and supporting the founding of temples/mystery schools in other places. We tried out different forms of governance and engagement with each other and the work. Essentially this was a second ray phase that followed the injunction given at the end of ‘Occult Cosmology’ to ‘just go out into the world and be love’ and to make monadic connections. This phase saw Bruce involved in supporting the development of ISTA, The International School of Temple Arts as an expression of a global mystery school - now operating in more than thirty countries with a faculty of 50 individuals from many different traditions. Jon explored bringing the Shamballa-force to the exploration of awakened global governance, with the Global Cooperative Forum project, and humanity’s purpose awakening with Global Purpose Movement. He co-wrote Earth as Eden with Dustin DiPerna - linking the Trans Himalayan Shamballa teachings with Integral theory, and built bridges to other non-dual traditions such as Dzogchen and Tibetan Buddhism.

This third phase beginning at the end of 2018 initiates a cohesive out breath of the School - a third ray manifestation that brings the will and love of the first two stages into synthetic expression. It coincides with the establishment of the mystery school at Highden last year and the third temple training starting this equinox. It will last until 2027 and include the journey of a group of 24 back to Kailas() in 2024. Over the next three months we will roll out a number of initiatives that will form the bones of this current expression, emerging phoenix like from the ashes of the earlier phases and yet containing the seeds that were purified by the fires.

There is a first ray component to the school - gathering those who identify with the life principle into rhythmic collaborative resonance so that they can eventually form a centre able to receive and transmit the planetary will. Regular group meditation and alignment practices form part of this aspect. The second ray component is making available the esoteric teachings to those whose souls are ready and thirsty for the comprehensive cosmic frameworks which help them understand and integrate the awakening experiences they are having. This will take the form of online programmes, talks, consultations in esoteric astrology, rayology, etc. as well as immersive retreats. We will also be building a global online community for those interested in the re-emergence of the temples and mystery schools as they manifest around the world. As we bring in the third ray in this phase, we see the integration of Shamballa School with a sustainable financial structure is key, so this online platform will involve a small monthly subscription fee of not more than €15, which will go towards nourishing and sustaining the work, and we’ll make sure that all those who feel deep resonance with it can access it regardless of their finances (the Facebook group will continue alongside this). This points to how there will also be a third ray expression of the school focusing on the use of money with love in alignment with purpose - we call this the bank of spirit. And lastly the seventh ray aspect of the school is both the manifestation of actual centres like the one at Highden as well as sacred journeys and retreats like the coming True Power event in Egypt at the time of the annual sun / galactic centre conjunction.

As this new phase lands, Shamballa School will embody a new governance structure in alignment with the archetype in Hierarchy and Shamballa. Bruce, having founded the School and deeply connected to its essential life, will stand back as the eye of a governance triangle with a 1st ray, 2nd ray and 3rd/7th ray point.

The 1st ray point will be held by Jon, who most of us know well already. The 2nd ray point by Andrea Dennis, who worked with Jon in Global Purpose Movement, and who has beautiful ability to midwife fields of deep love and connection. The 3rd/7th ray point will be held by Taki'h Dhyandeepa Antigoni, who has supported the work both online and at Highden in New Zealand. Taki’h has a strong background in tantra, women and men’s work, and who powerfully embodies the life-force of the body and earth. Key traits inherent in this triangle are a deep level of personal integration, love and experience in the mysteries of both consciousness and matter as a foundation for the expression of the life principle in spirit, soul and body.

In the meantime, we take this opportunity to thank all those who have been involved in the journey of Shamballa School so far and made significant contributions to its unfoldment and welcome all those who will join us for this modern expression of a dynamically alive global organism. Take a look at the new website - you will find a rich treasure trove of reading. In October we will launch the online community, in November the bank of Spirit and December will see the gathering for the first annual True Power pilgrimage through the Sahara in Egypt.

Equinox Blessings,

Bruce Lyon, Jon Darrall-Rew, Andrea Dennis, and Taki'h Dhyandeepa Antigoni

"The work of the modern day Mystery school is to plant the seeds of Will. These seeds will flower in the future as the widespread realisation of planetary soul purpose: The collective comprehension and implementation of the multi-incarnational purpose of the Earth as a conscious entity in cosmos."

Awakening the Higher Mind and the Intuition

Through the Use of Symbols

Presented by Duane Carpenter

Saturday, 13 October 2018, 11:59 pm – 1:30 am GMT

The primary objective of this series of webinars is to awaken the higher mind and the intuition and not necessarily to impart large volumes of information however important as a foundational base. Information is only useful if it eventually leads the student to an expansion of consciousness or changes in the inner sheaths or bodies. We must see the occult path and all of its allied information as a synthesis and how the isolated parts can be brought together into a more organic whole. Some of the images and animations that will be shared can be seen or experienced as short meditations.

This webinar series continues to explore a number of topics briefly such as:

  1. Laya Yoga is the science of the centers and was indicated by DK to be a secondary science of Esoteric Astrology. Also the science of Triangles underlies the entire field of esoteric astrology.

  2. All planetary and solar triangles have their counterpart in the human constitution or chakra system

  3. The Vortex and vacuum.

  4. Circular ray charts outlying the 6-fold energy qualities the students must become aware of and use in their meditations and service. These charts are based on DK’s own ray charts given in his teachings and expanded to show the different rays of the student more spherically or in 3-D. Walter Pullin’s work with his spherical triple sun astrological charts found at his website are a prime example of where much of the newer presentation are moving. The charts, tabulations and graphs given in the works of HPB and DK are representations of processes and unfolding powers.

  5. The Science of Electricity.

DK has indicated throughout all of his works that the science of astrology is the oldest and greatest of the esoteric sciences; it is not well known that DK has also stated that the science of electricity “is the greatest spiritual science of divine knowledge in the world the fringes of which have only just been touched”. (ROC 124)

From the above passage and quote we can see two entirely different sciences considered by the Tibetan to be the greatest, one of which is ancient and the other one which is just emerging. Let us compare and explore these two areas of recognition and find their common goals and similarities.

All of the above areas of research and exploration are of course intimately linked and connected when the big picture is seen.  To aid in this work I will be using many images, tabulations and animations.
