In 1875, a group of mysterious beings, secluded in the hidden recesses of the Himalayas, began an experiment of momentous impact: to reveal the existence of the Masters of Wisdom and their teachings to the world. They started a revolution in spirituality that reverberates around the world to this day.

El Morya and Kuthumi were the best-known spokesmen for the Great White Brotherhood at that time. From their lives and teachings in the late nineteenth century—just before they ascended— we can glean tremendous insights about the path of adeptship and how they trained their chelas. But the story of the adepts does not stop there. They continue to teach us today, and they urge us to follow in their footsteps and become adepts ourselves—because the world needs it! So what does it take, and where do we start? Attend this seminar and find out!
