The Lucis Trust
Satanism and the New World Order

by Scott Thompson
Executive Intelligence Review

Rev A [1]

A powerful wing of the Anglo-American  Establishment is currently under  investigation by this news service for its  role in promoting the cults of Satanism  and Luciferianism, for spawning an  entire subculture of drug-induced  violence believed to be behind the  recent pattern of hideous ritual murders.  As Dianne Core, a leading British expert  in the battle against Satanism, put it  recently, "We are in the middle of  spiritual warfare, and the Satanic  weapons are all pointed at the young."
It is no coincidence, that this wing of  the Establishment includes many of the  leading advocates of a New Yalta deal  with Moscow--top figures of the United  Nations bureaucracy, and leading elite  families. As we document below, they  even look to Mikhail Gorbachov as the  premier world cult leader in what they  call their "Externalized Hierarchy."
In this article, the first of an ongoing  series, we present a dossier of some of  the principal institutions and individuals  behind this evil "New Age" movement.  The reader will learn, how behind the  oh-so-nice U.N. brochures and talk about  "peace," some of the leading figures of  this grouping have been exposed as  practicing the most obscene homosexual  and child pornography rituals  imaginable. Take the notorious case of  Canon Edward West, the coordinator of  the American association of the Most  Venerable Order of St. John. Eyewitness  accounts indicate that during the 1980s,  he was a frequent participant in obscene  sexual rituals at homosexual S&M clubs  in Manhattan, including the Mineshaft  and the Hellfire Club (named after an  18th-century English secret Satanic  society). Favorite "entertainment" at the  Mineshaft included having children  urinate on the patrons. In the  mid-1980s, the club was shut down,  following an investigation by the New  York Police Department, which found  links to organized crime circles,  including those of John  Zaccaro, the  husband of 1984 Democratic vice  presidential nominee Geraldine Ferraro.

- The evil friends of Bishop Moore -

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the  medieval temple of the Episcopalian  Archdiocese of New York, has become  the mother institution of the New Age  movement in the United States, whose  goal is to eclipse the Age of  Pisces(Christianity) with an Age of  Aquarius (Lucifer). The presiding bishop  of the cathedral, Bishop Paul Moore,  whose family is heir to the Nabisco  company fortune,  has been in the  forefront of creating this Satanic "new  world order," since at least the late  1950s, when, as a priest in Indianapolis,  Indiana, he gave the "People's Temple"  cult of Jim Jones its start.

Later in 1977, Bishop Moore rocked the  Christian world, when he ordained a  militant lesbian, Ellen Marie Barrett,  who told Time magazine that it was her  lesbian love affair that gave her strength  to serve God. Bishop Moore claims that  the ordination of lesbians, and his other  Gnostic heresies, are merely part of the  ongoing revelation of God's truth to man  by the Holy Spirit, which had been  prophesied by the Disciple John.

With this dissembling rationale, Bishop  Moore has transformed the Cathedral of  St. John the Divine into a Gnostic  stronghold for such organizations as: The  Lucis Trust, founded in 1922 by Alice  Bailey, a disciple of Theosophist Madame  Helena Blavatsky. Originally named the  Lucifer Trust, it became a mother  institution of the modern New Age  movement; The Temple of  Understanding, which is headquartered  at the cathedral under its president, the  Very Reverend Dean James Parks Morton,  dean of the cathedral. It has turned the  cathedral into a harbor for Gnostic  religions ranging from Tibetan Buddhism  to Sufi Freemasonry; The medieval  village of Lindesfarne, New York, which  is to be the model for a New Age  lifestyle, once the Earth has been  purified of its billions of non-white souls;   A special ministry to Sufi Freemasons  who were a historical deployment  against Ibn Sina and the Arab  Renaissance, and whose modern-day  cathedral affiliates have been linked to  the assassination of Egyptian President  Anwar Sadat; The Zen Center, which  teaches meditation to the elite of the  Liberal Establishment; gay and lesbian  organizations, which seek to legitimize  their sin by arguing that the "beloved  disciple" John had a homosexual affair  with Christ, or else by creating Mother  Goddess religions in the cathedral's  crypts; a medieval chivalric order known  as the Most Venerable Order of the  Hospital of St. John, which, under the  direction of the Duke of Gloucester of  the British Royal Family, has inculcated  the "Episcopagan" American  Establishment in such Gnostic evil as the  necessity to spread Shi'ite  fundamentalism under the Ayatollah  Khomeini in Iran, because the Shah had  "sinned" by trying to industrialize his  nation.
The serried ranks of the dead among Jim  Jones's "Peoples Temple" cult, who had  consumed cyanide-laced Kool-Aid on  orders from Jones, are merely the more  public casualties of the Age of Aquarius,  when those bearing the "Mark of the  Beast" (666) are to be unleashed upon  the Earth once again. Throughout the  United States, the Satanic New Age  movement has grown to become a major  threat to the Judeo-Christian tradition  upon which our republic was founded.  Among the more recent signs of this  upsurge are the Atlanta child murders,  the case of New York child-beater Joel  Steinberg, and the mass murder of  school children in Stockton, California by  a drug addict wearing a "Satan" T-shirt. 

- The Soviet connection -

There is a national security dimension to  the growth of the New Age movement.  Starting in 1982, Bishop Moore returned  from the Soviet Union to warn that  unless the Anglo-American Establishment  carried out appeasement of the Soviets,  the Russians would launch a  thermonuclear first strike. Moore, who  entered the 1970s "peace movement" by  visiting with the Vietcong-controlled,  underground peace movement in  Vietnam, had by 1983 joined with the  pro-terrorist Institute for Policy Studies  and the U.S.A.-Canada Institute of the  U.S.S.R. Academy of Sciences, to  mobilize the American peace movement  to stop the Strategic Defense Initiative.  Thirty top Soviet intelligence officers,  who were joined by Bishop Moore, gave  marching orders to the American peace  leadership to this effect in Minneapolis,  Minnesota in 1983.

Last February, the Cathedral of St. John  the Divine hosted a "February Fling,"  sponsored by the Temple of  Understanding, which brought together  top Soviet officials to meet with their  counterparts in the West. Through Fr.  Luis Dolan, who travels to the U.S.S.R.  every six weeks to get marching orders  from officials of the CPSU International  Department-controlled Soviet Peace  Center, the Temple of Understanding  overlaps the Center for Soviet-American  Dialogue, which is involved in extensive  exchanges, whose purpose is to remove  the "enemy image" of the U.S.S.R. being  an "evil empire." Father Dolan also works  with Wainwright House, which has  several programs along the same lines  and which hosted a U.S.-U.S.S.R.  Citizens Summit. Spokesmen for the  Lucis Trust believe that Mikhail  Gorbachov may be the premier world  leader in their "Externalized Hierarchy,"  giving impetus to a "Plan" for a "new  world order" of Luciferian values and  behavior. The Lucis Trust also carries out  exchanges with the Soviet Union, where  they believe "Triangle Cells'' pray the  "Great Invocation'' for the coming Age of  Aquarius. These Luciferians welcome  Gorbachov, who bears the "Mark of the  Beast'' on his forehead.

- Isis priestess of the Aquarian Age -

The New Age movement's enthusiasm for  Gorbachov is really no surprise. The  roots of this movement date back to the  1870s, when Madame Helena Petrovna  Blavatsky (nee Princess Hahn in 1831 in  Ekaterinoslav, Georgia) was deployed by  a combination of "Black Hundreds'' forces  that included the Okhrana (Czarist  secret service) and the Russian Orthodox  Church, to destroy Augustinian  Christianity in the West, through the  creation of a Satanic ideology known as  Theosophy, which was a syncretism of  Eastern religions. As one Theosophical  Society brochure made clear, its goal  was "to oppose the materialism of  science and every form of dogmatic  theology, especially the Christian, which  the Chiefs of the Society regard as  particularly pernicious."

The deployment of Madame Blavatsky  into the West had been part of the same  effort--called the "Dostoevsky Project"  by the Theosophically-inspired Frankfurt  School--which led the Okhrana to  unleash the Scottish Freemasonic forces  of the liberal Alexander Kerensky, then  the "dark forces" of the Bolsheviks (many  of whom, including V.I. Lenin, had been  trained on the Isle of Capri in the cult  beliefs of the Emperor Tiberius, who  murdered Christ), for an assault upon  the Petrine state. Among those  principally responsible for deploying the  hashish-addicted Blavatsky into the West  were: Count Alexander Ignatiev,  one-time head of the Okhrana as interior  minister, whose family later joined with  the Bolshevik Revolution; Imperial Privy  Councilor Prince Aksakov, whose  correspondence with Blavatsky reveals  him to be a key controller; Fyodor  Dostoevsky, whose writings have  regained popularity under Gorbachov,  because they were a19th-century revival  of the Russian Orthodox Church's  "blood-and-soil" doctrine [a Luciferic  throwback to previous evolutionary  epochs] that Moscow would become "the  Third and Final Rome"; and, Mikhail,  Vladimir, and Vsevelod Soloviev, who,  from such bases as the St. Petersburg  Ecclesiastical Academy, propounded the  doctrines of Spiritualism that are being  revived in Russia today, and who profiled  Blavatsky as Tentacles of the Blavatsky  deployment extended quickly through  the West:

United  States - In 1873, Blavatsky  traveled to the U.S., where with the  Spiritualist Colonel Olcott, she founded  the American Theosophical Society,  whose headquarters became Pasadena,  California. Colonel Olcott had been  involved in seances at this time on a  farm in Chittenden, Vermont, with Mary  Baker Eddy, who founded Christian  Science as co-extensive with Theosophy.  Later, Olcott accompanied Blavatsky to  Adyar, India, which became the spiritual  center of the cult.

Great Britain -  In 1883, Blavatsky's  disciple Annie Besant, who later  assumed Blavatsky's mantle as High  Priestess of Theosophy, was a co-founder  of the British Fabian Society  (predecessor of the Labour Party)  together with Gnostic Christians and  Spiritualists, including the Spiritualist  Frank Podmore, later British Prime  Minister J. Ramsay Macdonald, Soviet  agent Lord Haldane, Lord and Lady  Passfield, the Freemason William Clarke,  Earl Bertrand Russell, Viscount and  Viscountess Snowden, Lord Sidney  Oliver, Lord Thomson, and others. In the  same year, Scottish noble Douglas  Dunglas Home, who had sponsored  Blavatsky as early as 1858 and given  seances for the Czar, returned to Great  Britain, where with support of the Cecil  family, he founded the Society for  Psychical Research, whose members  included Arthur Conan Doyle, Lord  Balfour, Lord Bertrand Russell, John  Dewey, and William James.

Another excrescence of Theosophy was  the explicitly Satanist Edward Aleister  Crowley's Order of the Golden Dawn (or,  Stella Matutina), which overlapped the  predominantly Anglo-American Ordo  Templi Orientis (OTO) and the Thule  Society in Munich, which gave birth to  the Nazi Party through the good offices  of Houston Stewart Chamberlain, Karl  Haushofer, Rudolf Hess, and the Wagner  Kreis.

Germany -  Blavatsky's co-controller,  Count Aksakov, established in Leipzig,  Germany a Theosophical magazine,  Psychische Studien, which was  influential upon the careers of Sigmund  Freud and especially Carl Jung. It also  influenced the schismatic Theosophist  Rudolf Steiner, who founded in 1913 the  Dornach, Switzerland-based  Anthroposophy sect, which has lately  been a leading influence within West  Germany's Free Democratic Party, and  also the seed-crystal in southern  Germany of the fascist Green party. [2]  Meanwhile, in the 1920s, a Berlin-based  Theosophist, Graf von Reventlow,  founded a European network of the  Comintern's Baku Conference of  "Oppressed Peoples,'' which sought to  merge Marxism with Sufism.

Switzerland - The Ascona, Switzerland  secret base of Theosophy--centered  around a cult of Astarte--was the  spiritual center of the Frankfurt School,  which overlapped the Soviet GRU  (military intelligence) through such  founders as Hede Massing, Richard Sorge,  and Max Horkheimer, who developed the  "Authoritarian Personality'' dogma to  target and destroy those who based their  behavior upon natural law. Ascona was  also a spiritual center of the "Children of  the Sun'' gay and lesbian networks, which  overlapped the Philby, Burgess, Maclean  spy network in Great Britain. Finally,  Ascona was the religious center for the  Theosophical psychiatrist Carl Jung,  popularizer of the Gnostic Bible. Among  Jung's disciple-patients were: Mary  Bancroft, the mistress-secretary of Allen  Dulles, who was OSS chief in Switzerland  during World War II; and Mary and Paul  Mellon, who, on their return to the U.S.  in 1939, founded the Bollingen  Foundation to propagate Gnosticism and  a study center on witchcraft at  Princeton University. Also, Lenin himself  participated in cult dances on Monte  Verita in Ascona. 

- Alice Bailey and the Lucis Trust -

Alice La Trobe Bateman was the founder  in 1920 of the Lucifer Trust, which  represented a syncretism of Gnostic  Christianity with Blavatsky's Theosophy.  Bailey's Gnostic doctrine transformed  God into Nietzschean Will, while Christ is  considered merely a lowly part of the  many "Ascended Masters," who form a  "Hierarchy," that is eventually to be  "externalized" to carry out a "Plan" for a  "new world order" that is otherwise  known to Bailey's disciples as the Age of  Aquarius or Age of Maitreya. The Lucis  Trust, which today has  Non-Governmental Organization (NGO)  status at the United Nations and has  been given legitimacy by the Cathedral  of St. John the Divine, has spawned an  array of New Age fronts, including the  Temple of Understanding.

Born in Britain, Alice was raised an  Episcopalian, before separating from her  first husband, a drunken missionary to  the United States, who beat her  frequently. Relocated from Britain to  the West Coast, she was recruited into  the Pacific Grove Lodge of Theosophy in  1915. By 1920, she became editor of the  American Theosophists' newspaper, The  Messenger. In this same year she married  Foster Bailey (a Scottish Rite Freemason  and Co-Mason), and she launched a fight  with Annie Besant for control of  Theosophy, which Alice Bailey lost, when  Besant's man, Louis Roger, was elected  president. Immediately after the dust  settled, Alice and Foster Bailey founded  their own Tibetan Lodge, then the  Lucifer Trust, whose name was abridged  in 1922 to its present Lucis Trust.

By the 1930s, Bailey claimed 200,000  members, and her faction of Theosophy  grew even more rapidly after  Krishnamurti in 1939 denounced Besant's  scheme to promote him as the Messiah.  Throughout these years, Bailey spent her  summers in Ascona, Switzerland, where  along with Mary and Paul Mellon, she  attended Jung's Eranos Conferences.  Bailey established a series of fronts,  which include:

The Arcane School - Founded in 1923,  the school gives correspondence courses  in meditation from its branches in New  York, Geneva, London, and Buenos Aires.  A brochure states: "The presentation of  the teaching adapted to the rapidly  emerging new civilization stresses the  training of disciples in group formation,  a technique which will characterize the  discipleship service in the Aquarian Age."
World Goodwill - Founded in 1932, the  organization is recognized by the United  Nations today as an NGO. Ever since the  dropping of the atomic bomb (which is  seen by these kooks as a spiritual  manifestation of Luciferian light), Lucis  Trust has sought to give the U.N. a  monopoly over nuclear weapons with  which to impose a "one world federalist  empire" upon sovereign nations. World  Goodwill works directly with the "world  federalists," and is part of the work to  "Externalize the Hierarchy" of "Illumined  Minds," which will usher in an "Age of  Maitreya," otherwise interpreted by  Bailey to be the return of Christ  prophesied in the biblical book of  Revelations.
Triangles - Founded in 1937, Triangles is  the name for a global network of cells,  whose members pray a "Great  Invocation," especially on the night of  the full moon, when members of the  Triangle can be influenced by the  astrological signs of the zodiac.
Findhorn - This is the sacred community  of the New Age movement, based in  Great Britain. Bailey disciple David  Spangler, another explicit Luciferian,  became co-director of the Findhorn  Foundation, when he formed the Lorian  Association. He sits on the boards of  directors of Planetary Citizens, the  secretariat of Planetary Initiative for the  World We Choose (launched at the  Cathedral of St. John in 1982), and is a  contributing editor to New Age  Magazine.

But, Lucis is not limited to low-level  Satanists. When he was Secretary of  Defense in the early-1960s, Robert  McNamara prayed to the full moon along  the Potomac River, according to  journalist Edith Roosevelt. The Lucis  Trust endorsed McNamara's tenure as  head of the World Bank--which is hardly  surprising, since Lucis believes in the  Blavatskyian "Great White Brotherhood,"  which is consistent with the  neo-malthusian aim of the International  Monetary Fund to exterminate  darker-skinned races. [3] Not only does  Bailey explicitly seek to destroy the  nation state, which she equates with the  "idealism" of the Age of Pisces, but in her  1954 work Education in the New Age, she  also endorses Nazi eugenics and sex  hygiene to purify the race. Apart from  U.N. Secretary General Javier Parez de  Cuellar, spokesmen for Lucis view  Mikhail Gorbachov as the greatest world  leader externalizing their "Plan" today.

- The Temple of Understanding -

The Lucis Trust in 1963 founded a more  distanced front group, the Temple of  Understanding, which also has NGO  status and worked out of the U.N.  premises directly, until in 1984 it shifted  headquarters to the Cathedral of St.  John the Divine. The Lucis Trust and the  Temple remain covertly entwined to this  day.

While the chairman of the Temple is  Judith Dickerson Hollister, those  involved with its founding were: the late  "Isis Priestess" of anthropology, Dame  Margaret Mead of the Order of St. John;  Order of St. John's Canon Edward West;  U.N. deputy secretary general Robert  Muellar, who had been involved as well  with the Lucis Trust; and one Winifred  McCulloch, leader of the New York-based  Teilhard de Chardin Society.

Dormant for several years after a major  expose by Edith Roosevelt, the Temple  was revived at the Cathedral of St. John  the Divine in 1984 at a ceremony  presided over by Bishop Paul Moore and  the Dalai Lama. According to the past  executive director, Priscilla Pedersen, its  present board overlaps that of David  Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission.  Recent activities of the Temple include:

Global Forum of Spiritual and  Parliamentary Leaders on Human  Survival. Held in Oxford, England April  11-15, 1988, its luminaries included the  Dalai Lama, the Archbishop of  Canterbury, and Carl Sagan.  Co-organizers of the Global Forum were  the Temple of Understanding and the  Global Committee of Parliamentarians  on Population and Development, which  latter advocates neo-malthusian  population reduction as the solution to  the world's ills. Present also at the  conference were four Soviet Communist  Party Central Committee members,  including Dr. Evgenii Velikhov, Vice  President of the Soviet Academy of  Sciences. At the Global Forum, Rabbi  Adin Steinsaltz, founder-director of the  Israel Institute for Talmudic  Publications, agreed with Velikhov to set  up an institute to gather the Judaica of  Russia.

In January 1990, the Oxford Global  Forum will be followed by a Temple of  Understanding event in Moscow, which is  being sponsored by the Russian Orthodox  Church, the Supreme Soviet, and the  Soviet Academy of Sciences. The main  thrust of the follow-on conference will  be to get world religious and political  leaders working together on such  neo-malthusian ecological schemes as  the "greenhouse effect" hoax. This is  merely a global replay, which has the  backing of the Soviet Union, which  agreed to a Dartmouth Conference  proposal in the 1960s to promote  ecology in exchange for unilateral  Western arms control deals.

The North American Interfaith Network -  It was established last year to bring  together the major religions in a  theocratic institutional network. Its  director is Rev. Daniel Anderson, a  Lutheran, who was recently coopted to  be executive director of the Temple,  working out of the Cathedral of St. John.
The Wichita North American Assisi  Conference - This conference, held Oct.  30-Nov. 1, 1988 in Wichita, Kansas, was  in preparation for the 1993 celebration  of the centennial of the launching of the  "New Religions" movement by Chicago  Round Tabler William T. Stead. Like the  Global Forum, the Wichita conference  brought together American Indians,  Sikhs, Sufis, Buddhists, Islamic  fundamentalists, and Jews.

February Fling -  This was a two-week  celebration at the Cathedral of St. John  in 1988, to promote 100 prominent  Soviets. It was co-sponsored by the  Temple of Understanding and the Center  for Soviet-American Dialogue. Catholic  priest Fr. Luis Dolan, who sits on the  board of both institutions, was the  organizer of the tour. Father Dolan is  head of the Citizens Diplomacy Center of  Wainwright House, which sponsors a  multitude of East-West exchange  programs oriented toward removing the  "enemy image'' of the U.S.S.R. as an "evil  empire."

Wainwright House's Institute for Spiritual  Development was directed by Judith  Hollister, the founding chairman of the  Temple of Understanding. Through  Father Dolan, Wainwright House has  pledged to work on four East-West  projects in 1989 with the Temple.  Among these is a project on ecology, for  which Wainwright House has received  funding from Lawrence Rockefeller to  promote.

Another board member of the Temple is  the Rabbi Arthur Schneier, self-described  as the "Jewish Armand Hammer." Rabbi  Schneier controls the question of  emigration of Jewish Refuseniks, and a  colleague states that he has lined up  with Edgar Bronfman to call for repeal of  the Jackson-Vanik trade amendment,  because under Gorbachov, Jewish  emigration from the Soviet Union has  increased.

- Center for Soviet-American Dialogue -

The Center is a major back channel  between the New Age movement and the  U.S.S.R., and has been taken over by  New Age leaders including:

Barbara Marx Hubbard.  She is a founding  member and co-director of the  Soviet-American Council for Joint  Projects. She co-founded Win-Win-World  and is President of the Foundation for  Co-Creation. Her name was placed in  nomination for the vice presidency on  the Democratic ticket in 1984. Hubbard,  who entered the New Age movement  under the influence of Teilhard de  Chardin, created a "human front" in 1967  of those sharing a belief in transcendent  consciousness, which became the  Committee for the Future. Hubbard  called this transcendent consciousness  "supra-sex," and she has an extensive  network of congressmen involved in the  process of haruspication.

Willis Harman, president of the Institute  of Noetic Sciences and Senior Social  Scientist at the Stanford Research  Institute International. The Institute for  Noetic Sciences has worked closely with  the Temple of Understanding, while SRI  has had among its trainees such figures  as former Secretary of State George  Shultz, who believes not only in  global-power sharing "New Yalta"  arrangements with the U.S.S.R., but also  in convergence through a New Age based  upon cybernetics. Harman is the brains  behind Marilyn Ferguson, whose book  The Aquarian Conspiracy sought to  popularize Luciferian Gnosticism.  Harman is also a founding member of  Hubbard's Soviet-American Council for  Joint Projects, and he is chairman of the  Independent Commission for a Viable  Future. Harman's own 1974 The Changing  Image of Man coined the phrase  "paradigm shift" to describe the  sought-after transformation from the  Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.

James A. Garrison, executive director of  the Soviet-American Exchange Program  at the Esalen Institute, which has been  linked directly to Soviet "psychic  espionage" activities of the KGB and  GRU, penetrating the U.S. military and  intelligence communities. This is the  modern work of the Blavatsky-Okhrana  intelligence deployment, which works  today through the likes of Soviet  "spoonbender" Yuri Geller.

Notes (not in original article)

[1] Posted version revised 11/18/01. The  version previously posted contained  errors due to the fact that I obtained it  from R_SAT1.html, which is missing quite a  bit of information.  I did the best I could  at filling in the missing information, but  I left some of it blank, and some of what  I filled in turned out to be wrong.
  By sheer luck, I downloaded it again  from the aforementioned source on  impulse, and again on impulse opened it  with Corel Wordperfect 8.0.  To my  amazement, the missing information  appeared highlighted in red, although  somewhat garbled.  With a little work, I  was able to reconstruct it.

[2] Steiner broke from the  Blavatsky-Besant-Bailey brand of  "Theosophy" because it had been  "hijacked" by various forces with selfish  and evil agendas.  He indicated that his  mission was to purify Theosophy.  It  appears to me that his teachings are  being misused to convey an aura of  authority on certain movements which  take them out of context.

[3]  The term "white" in this case refers  to a class of initiates, not skin color,  although I share Thompson's mistrust of  Bailey's "guides" and doubt that they  were members of this benevolent class.
