Sacred Festivals

Annual Weekend Retreats

From time immemorial mankind has realized the value of sacred festivals and holy days. Their influence is, as it always will be, to stir humanity's latent longing to behold once again the Shores of Eternity from whence each soul originates, and the God Presence from Whom all life springs. It is these recollections of the inner worlds that ring true when we are moved by a sacred rite or religious observance. Somehow we know we are at a threshold—there is something awesome just around the corner of consciousness and we reach up to be reunited with it.

Our earth's holidays have vital meanings. They are like a rosary, 'each bead a prayer, each festival a communion.' Spiritual forces are released through these occasions that ordinarily do not reach the shore of our consciousness. There are openings of inner doors on these days, where light comes out in regular frequencies.
