Etheric Retreats of the Ascended Masters
In recent eras, few among mankind have entered the etheric retreats and temples of the Great White Brotherhood. The retreats, once physical on the lost continents of Lemuria and Atlantis, were withdrawn to the realms of perfection, the etheric plane, reachable only by the most advanced initiates.
With the dawning of the Aquarian age, however, lightbearers were given again opportunity to enter these retreats just beyond physical awareness. By means of soul travel, you can visit these spiritual retreats while you sleep, as time and space are merely coordinates of infinity.
Universities of the Spirit – Retreats of the Chohans
The chohans of the rays are the closest of the Ascended Masters to humanity. The offices of the chohans are divinely appointed by the cosmic hierarchy. Each one has attained self-mastery and won the ascension by serving humanity on one or more of the seven rays.
On January 1, 1986, Gautama Buddha announced that the seven chohans of the rays had been granted approval by the Lords of Karma to open, “Universities of the Spirit in each of their etheric retreats where they might welcome not dozens or hundreds but thousands and tens of thousands of students who will diligently pursue the path of self-mastery on the seven rays systematically, mastering most especially the first and the seventh rays…”
