What we're about
You are invited to a book study of Esoteric Healing. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month in Brighton from 7pm to 8.30pm. Meetings start off with "The Great Invocation" followed with the book study.
This is for students of the Ancient Wisdom and those who are discovering the serious path of esoteric study or wish to extend their knowledge of healing into the higher esoteric realms. If you do not have a copy of the text I can supply copy pages although you may find your own copy would be advantageous for writing notes in. Yes I can direct you to suppliers to obtainin a copy. As meet-up charges to adveritise groups there is a $5 donation towards the costs. "The entire subject of Healing is as old as the ages themselves, and has ever been the subject of investigation and experiment. But as to the right use of the healing faculty and forces, the knowledge is in its infancy. Only in this age and generation is it at last possible to impart the laws of magnetic healing, and to indicate the causes of those diseases - originating in the three inner bodies - which today devastate the human frame, cause endless suffering and pain, and usher man through the portal which leads to the world of bodiless existence. Only today is man at the point in the evolution of his consciousness where he can begin to realize the power of the subjective worlds, and the new and vast science of psychology is his response to this growing interest. Processes of adjustment, of elimination and of cure engage the minds of all thoughtful people as well as of all suffering people. When one enters the realm of healing, one enters a world of much esoteric knowledge, and of an infinity of conclusions, and one is faced with the formulations of many minds, who, through the ages, have sought to heal and to help. The why and the wherefore of disease have been the subject of endless investigations and speculations, and much definite deduction has been made as to the cures of such complaints; there has been also much formulation of methods, of techniques, of formulae, of prescription, of varied manipulations and of theories. All these serve to fill the mind with many ideas - some correct, some erroneous - and this makes it most difficult for new ideas to enter and for the student to assimilate the hitherto unknown.... You naturally ask here: What is the general plan which I shall seek to follow as I instruct you in the laws of healing, those laws which guide the initiates and must gradually supersede the more physical methods of the present art of healing? You naturally also seek to know what is the special technique which you - as healers - must learn to employ, both as regards yourselves and as regards those you seek to heal. I will briefly outline the teaching I shall endeavor to give and point out where you must lay the emphasis, as you commence the study of this subject. I shall endeavor first of all to touch upon the causes of disease, for the occult student must ever begin in the world of origins and not in the world of effects. In the second place, I shall elaborate the seven methods of healing which govern the "work of restitution" (as it is called in the occult terminology) as practiced by the initiates of the world. These determine the techniques which must be employed. You will note that these methods and techniques are conditioned by the rays (of which I have written elsewhere: A Treatise on the Seven Rays, Vol. I and II.) and that therefore the healer has to take into  consideration not only his own ray but also the ray of the patient. There are therefore seven ray techniques, and these require elucidation before they can be applied intelligently. In the third place, I shall lay emphasis upon psychological healing and upon the need to deal with the patient in his inner life ..... In the fourth place, we will consider the physical body, its diseases and ills, but only after we have studied that part of man which lies behind and surrounding the dense physical body. In that way we shall work from the world of inner causes to the world of outer happenings." Esoteric Healing Pg 1 - 2 A.A.Bailey
