The Great Invocation


"As it is Above so it is below;
As it is Within so it is without;
As in the Great so in the small;
There is but one Life and one Law."

Hermes Trismegistus




"Learn above all to separate Head-learning from Soul-Wisdom, the 'Eye' from the 'Heart' doctrine.


" ... even ignorance is better than Head-learning with no Soul-wisdom to illuminate and guide it."

The Voice of the Silence,
translated & annotated by Madame Blavatsky




"In every human being there slumber faculties by means of which he can acquire for himself a knowledge of higher worlds.


"The Mystic, the Gnostic, the Theosophist have always spoken of a world of soul and a world of spirit which are just as real to them as the world we can see with physical eyes and touch with physical hands.


"Anyone who listens to them may at every moment say to himself: that of which they speak I too can know, if I develop certain powers which today still slumber within me.

Knowledge of the Higher Worlds
by Dr. Rudolf Steiner




"Every living being that you bestow your love upon reveals itself to you. Lack of love is a veil overlying the things of the world and shrouding them from view. Inasmuch as you send out love, you will receive knowledge in like measure. 

Dr. Rudolf Steiner




"In the human understanding the concept of consciousness is limited. This results from the acceptance of the visible world only. Knowledge remains confined within limits if the boundaries of visibility are not broadened.

"But let us look beyond the boundaries of human consciousness and knowledge; let us find a minute grain of cosmic understanding. How beautiful is the vast horizon! How powerful is the thought penetrating Space! What new ways are disclosed by communion with Infinity!

"Seek these treasures; in them is the guarantee of your advancement."

Infinity, Vol. I,
received by Helena Roerich




"The pillars of a nation stand erect only on the qualities of heroism of the spirit and the heart.

Fiery World, Vol. III,
received by Helena Roerich




"The task of the new education is to take the civilised masses and lead them on to the point where they are cultured; to take likewise the cultured people and train them in the ways of the Illuminati.

"Eventually it will be found that what is now taught in the schools of the esotericists will be part of the acknowledged curriculum for the rising generation, and that the teaching given to the advanced, thinking people of the world today will be adapted to the needs of the youth of that period."

Education in the New Age,
received by Alice Bailey




"The time is long past when a line of demarcation can be drawn between the religious world and the political and economic. The reason for the corrupt politics and the greedy ambitious planning of so many of the world's leading men can be found in the fact that spiritually minded men and women have not assumed -- as their spiritual duty and responsibility -- the leadership of the people." 

The Problems of Humanity
received by Alice Bailey




"There are certain basic principles that transcend all partisanship, these are the prerogative of no party nor any nation, but are shared by all things living, because they are the laws of evolving life.

"In the light of these spiritual principles, we can guide our lives with steadfastness and certainty through all crises, and may know a sense of inner peace and security that cannot be shaken by any circumstances, not even death itself. And more than this, we can learn how best to bring such gifts as we have to give the common weal....


"Whatever we may be doing -- active service, civil defence or our daily tasks, we should remember that it is a part of the One Life."

The Magical Battle of Britain,
by Dion Fortune




"And he showed me a river of the water of life ... and on either side of the river was the tree of life ... and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 

Revelation 22: 1-2

POLARIS: The Pole Star

The Institute for Global Spirituality was founded to serve the education and healing of humanity -- individuals, families, communities, nations and the comity of nations. Further, the Institute promotes loving understanding of, and the establishing of right relations with, the rest of the natural world.

The Institute for Global Spirituality is universal in the educational sense, non-sectarian in the religious sense and non-partisan in the political sense. We honor diversity of perspectives and multiple ways of knowing.

The Institute for Global Spirituality has been incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit educational corporation in the State of Delaware -- the first state to join the union of the United States of America -- and has tax-exempt status.

The Institute for Global Spirituality's unfolding program is being financed, in part, by tuition fees received from our workshops and seminars. However, generous financial support from those who recognize the importance of our work is essential to our material survival.

The Institute for Global Spirituality's motto, "the will-to-create that which expresses the will-to-good", provides focus and direction to our endeavor to assist intelligent, caring human beings to become increasingly responsible planetary citizens, whose daily living is in alignment with Divine Purpose and contributes to the working out of the Divine Plan for humanity and all planetary lives.


Our Educational Program

At one time or another we have probably all heard the phrases, coming down to us from the Mystery Schools of Antiquity:

Man, know thyself;

There is no religion higher than the Truth.

Self-knowledge is the basis for self-healing and spiritual transformation. When you do not know the first thing about who you truly are, about your purpose and your destiny, you do not know how to begin to go about educating and healing yourself in a way productive of far-reaching, lasting results.

When you successfully educate and heal yourself, and become a more loving and light-filled being, you are in a position to more effectively help others to achieve important positive changes in their inner and outer lives. The best teachers and healers know themselves best, and are working with determination, wisdom and knowledge to transform themselves into the enlightened, compassionate beings they yearn to become in the deepest recesses of their hearts.

Those who pursue self-knowledge with sincerity are able to acquire true knowledge of the greater Reality in which we live and move and have our being. They develop the awareness, arising from awakened inner senses, that allows them to explore and experience causal levels of life and consciousness. These source levels give rise to everything we experience in the time and space of the physical plane, and it is from these levels that we can effect the most profound and lasting changes in ourselves and our environment.

All religions and spiritual traditions recognize the value of prayer and meditation in linking the human being up with higher aspects of his or her whole self, and with the greater Life in Whom we live and move and have our being.
