The Northern School of Esoteric Wisdom
In one sense we are Theosophists, in another sense, we practise both Vajarayana Buddhism along with the self-observation techniques of the Gurdjieff/Ouspensky Work ideas. We found the knowledge and practicality of the Gurdjieff/Ouspensky Work cuts through to the bare bones of the human machine and in a no-nonsense way breaks down the glamours of the spiritual path. We studied the esoteric ideas of Theosophy and included the works of the Tibetan Master through Alice A. Bailey as Theosophy. We were not glued to traditional Theosophy, which focuses primarily on Blavatsky. We followed the trend of esoteric thought as it evolved in the West. For practical work, the technology of awakening, we studied the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
The Esoteric Work is based on 5th Ray, or exact knowledge, 7th Ray discipline, ritual or harmonious living, and 2nd Ray which is the underlying energy of intelligent action or Wisdom, and Compassion. What we were interested in, is breaking everything down into its ‘essence’, to its simplest form that could be applied to increase our knowledge and know how in practice.
We are a school of esoteric meditation, study, and service. Our purpose is to further the teachings of the Esoteric Tradition, making them practical for aspirants living and working on a day-to-day basis in our fast moving world.
“Living on the Inner Edge”, An Esoteric Tale
Book 1 which will be available in Summer/Fall of 2018 and Book 2 which will be out a year later provides valuable insights into an esoteric group work that lasted for several decades. Included in this book are charts and diagrams of a practical nature that outline the “essence” of the Esoteric Path. Once these are understood their value in one’s efforts becomes apparent.
One topic that I’ve written about in detail to help aspirant to gain a deeper understanding is the “Dweller on the Threshold”.
There is precious little information on this topic in any occult books. There is information scattered throughout the books of Alice A. Bailey as outlined by the Master D.K. In “Living on the Inner Edge” this most esoteric topic is made very real and practical.
