THE 31st ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
The Will and the Way
May 2 – 14, 2017
Pre-Conferences – May 2 – 9, 2017
Main Conference – May 9 – 14, 2017
in Chandler, Arizona, USA
Well, the time of our 31st SRI/USR Conference is fast approaching and as you know we are in a new, lovely venue in Chandler, Arizona. Our Pre-Conference begins on May 2nd at the San Marcos Resort in Old Town Chandler, and our main Conference on May 9th. Please go to our website to see what we have planned.
We are beginning an eight year process which leads up to the very important year 2025, when in all probability, the Hierarchy will lay plans for the first actual stages of its Externalization. This is what Master DK tells us in The Externalization of the Hierarchy, p. 530.
Thus a great and new movement is proceeding and a tremendously increased interplay and interaction is taking place. This will go on until A.D. 2025. During the years intervening between now and then very great changes will be seen taking place, and at the great General Assembly of the Hierarchy-held as usual every century-in 2025 the date in all probability will be set for the first stage of the externalisation of the Hierarchy. The present cycle (from now until that date) is called technically “The Stage of the Forerunner”. It is preparatory in nature, testing in its methods, and intended to be revelatory in its techniques and results. You can see therefore that Chohans, Masters, initiates, world disciples, disciples and aspirants affiliated with the Hierarchy are all at this time passing through a cycle of great activity. (EXH 530)
Our work together will go deep since we are emphasizing the First Ray of Will and Power. We will also have our lighter moments, especially on Saturday night, the 13th. Our little ‘talent’ festival last year was an enjoyable time together, so we will keep the festival atmosphere going for a while. Singing, instrumental music, poetry, dramatic readings, dance–whatever little performance you would like to offer, please let us know. We greatly appreciated your contributions last year. ALSO–this time your costumes should relate to the FIRST RAY. You don’t all have to come dressed as Darth Vader in black, but something imaginative along the first ray line–OR, of course, any costume suggesting the Ageless Wisdom. Solar Angels, even if not on the first ray, will be allowed to stay!
So please do plan to be with us. This is the kick-off of our new series of conferences, beginning with the Number One and ending in 2025 with the climactic Number Nine. This year as well, we will have the Wesak Celebration at the exact moment of the Wesak Full Moon. We did this once before long ago, and now again, so the Conference will be special for a number of reasons.
We look forward to working with you, doing our part to prepare for the Externalization of the Hierarchy and the Reappearance of the Christ.
