The Upper Room: The Dwelling Place of Christ Within

Facilitator: William Meader

Within the subtle planes of human consciousness is found The Upper Room. It is a dimension of awareness that transcends the mental, emotional and physical perceptions of the personality and is the place where your soul is inwardly found. In this two-day seminar, led by internationally-renowned teacher William Meader, we will explore the origin, nature and evolution of this realm – and how to connect with your soul’s many gifts in everyday life. Includes practical guidance, meditation exercises and discussion in a warm, group setting.

Early Bird priced places are now sold out – places at standard prices are still available.

The Dwelling Place of Christ Within

The Upper Room is the subtle realm where the carriage of the soul resides – a structure of angelic substance called the Causal Body.

This Causal Body contains the sum-total of the wisdom that an individual has garnered over the course of countless incarnations. In addition, it is a field of awareness where the energy of Christ-like love is found. Indeed, the Upper Room is where both the soul and the Causal Body reside, and is the place where the livingness of Christ dwells within each of us.

The Causal Body is often symbolised as a twelve-petalled lotus, so we will consider the gifts of awareness that these petals give to the evolution of human consciousness, eventually leading to enlightenment. Because the Causal Body is the custodian of the Christ Principle, we will closely consider the evolution of Higher Love as it evolves within us, both from an astrological and rayological perspective.

In addition, the following topics will be presented and discussed, all of which will help us better understand and access the Upper Room hidden within each of us:

  • The Laws of the Soul, governed by the Causal Body
  • Building the upper span of the Antahkarana
  • The origin of the Solar Angel, and its role in the evolution of human consciousness
  • The cultivation of Inclusive Reason – an essential quality within the Upper Room
  • Applying Synthetic Understanding when in service to humanity
  • A preparatory overview of the 2025 Conclave, occurring every 100 years

All of these topics will be explained over the course of the weekend.
