Eriel's retreat in Arizona
The ascended master Eriel maintains his etheric retreat over the state of Arizona. The etheric retreat is not far from the etheric city over the Arizona deserts, and there is a physical outpost of the retreat in the mountains.
Classes in the Light and Sound Rays are held in this retreat. These classes are open only to qualified students, initiates of the ascended masters who are deemed worthy by the Lords of Karma to receive this instruction.
Eriel’s retreat is a haven of light apart from worldly vibrations, a retreat in the true sense of the word. Here one learns the beauties of solitude, of aloneness, or all-oneness in God. Those who like to hike in the mountains and meditate upon God will appreciate the Spirit that permeates this retreat. These should call to be taken there while their bodies sleep, for only in this atmosphere of complete separation from the world can one learn the involved science of the Light and Sound Rays.
The flame focus in his retreat is purple with a sheath of pink; the radiance from the retreat is that of divine love. To this home of light, Eriel draws children who have made the transition. Young children up to the age of twelve and even those in their teens are taken there for adjustment to the new octave in which they often so suddenly find themselves by accidents, diseases and other causes. Here, Eriel assists them in developing some facet of their divine plan in preparation for reembodiment.
The music “To a Wild Rose,” from Woodland Sketches, by Edward MacDowell, captures the flame of Eriel’s retreat.
