Health and healing (part one)
by the Master –, through Benjamin Creme
Everywhere, today, are to be found groups whose main concern is to further the idea of healthy living, and to foster the interest of the public in achieving greater vitality and freedom from disease. On all sides, books are appearing offering dietary and other regimes – some new and unproved, others based on ancient lore – which claim to cure all bodily ills from overweight to the deadliest scourges to which humanity is prone. A new impetus has been given to research into the causes and nature of disease and to its prevention and cure.

As yet, the true cause of disease is quite unknown. Buried deep in man’s past, it is largely karmic, and is transmitted by heredity. In this karma, all of humanity shares. Ancient transgressions of the Laws of Life have left this unwelcome heritage and only a profound reconstruction of our ways of thinking and living will transform this situation and, gradually, bring balance. That such balance will come is inevitable; but it will take time to eradicate certain age-old diseases and to cleanse the soil of the planet itself. In particular, the traditional forms of burial, widespread today, must give way to cremation, the only sanitary method of disposal of the body after death.

Everywhere, now, are to be found enclaves of research into the newer healing methods; much experimentation is proceeding along reasonably correct lines and the doors of knowledge are opening one by one. Soon, a flood of new insights will sweep the world, leading to an entirely new approach to disease and its cause and treatment.

Spring Festivals
During the spring full moons, spiritual energies are at their most powerful because of the sun–moon–earth alignment and the potency of these ancient festivals. Group meditation, and particularly Transmission Meditation, provides a unique opportunity for us to invoke these evolutionary energies for spiritual service—something especially helpful during this time of planetary transformation. Transmission group members are encouraged to ‘connect’ with any Share International groups at the time/s the groups have chosen. This information is sent to groups in a separate communication. If you are new to Transmission Meditation, we invite you to join a special Zoom introduction and meditation on Tuesday, May 25, 7:30 pm EDT celebrating the Christ Festival. To request the Zoom link, send an email to

Below we have provided a brief description of each Festival and some simple meditation guidelines. You may also wish to sit quietly and meditate on the exact day of the May full moon, May 26th.


Easter Festival (Aries)
Date: March 28
"The first festival of spring marks a process of rebirth and revitalization. It is celebrated at the full moon in Aries, after the vernal equinox, and usually occurs in April. In the Christian tradition, it is called Easter, the festival of resurrection. It celebrates the risen Christ, but resurrection implies more than the one-time arising from the grave of the physical body. In each minute of each hour, we have the possibility to be born anew, to let go of the past and move on. When old patterns of thought and emotion are discarded, when old habits and beliefs are outgrown and set aside, we are free to meet every new situation unconditionally. Higher energies rush in to fill the place of expectancy that we have created, and the inner light expands. We open to life more abundant and are made new."


The Wesak Festival (Taurus)
Date: April 27
"The festival of Wesak occurs at the time of the full moon in Taurus, usually in May. In the East, it commemorates the enlightenment of the Buddha and is widely celebrated. Wesak marks the high-point in the spiritual year, for it is said that at this time each year, the Buddha returns to the physical plane for a brief moment, bringing an inflow of life and spiritual stimulation to vitalize all of humanity. Thousands of pilgrims gather every year in a remote valley in the Himalayas to re-enact an ancient sacred ceremony based on the legend of Wesak, which has to do with the sharing of the waters of life."



Festival of the Christ/The Festival of Goodwill (Gemini)
Date: May 26
"This will be the Festival of the spirit of humanity aspiring towards God, seeking conformity with the will of God and dedicated to the expression of right human relations. This will be fixed annually in relation to the Full Moon of June. It will be a day whereon the spiritual and divine nature of mankind will be recognised. On this Festival for two thousand years the Christ has represented humanity and has stood before the Hierarchy and in the sight of Shamballa as the God-Man, the Leader of His people, and "the Eldest in a great family of brothers" (Romans VIII: 29). Each year at that time He has preached the last sermon of the Buddha, before the assembled Hierarchy. This will, therefore, be a festival of deep invocation and appeal, of a basic aspiration towards fellowship, of human and spiritual unity, and will represent the effect in the human consciousness of the work of the Buddha and of the Christ." (The above quotes are from The Reappearance of the Christ by Alice Bailey, pp. 154-157)


On the day of the full moon, groups throughout the world link up mentally to form a conduit through which these great spiritual energies can reach humanity. You are invited to take part in this world service with these simple steps:

  • Sit in a comfortable position, with head upright and spine straight.
  • To start the meditation, close your eyes, focus your attention at the ajna center (between the eyebrows) and say "The Great Invocation" aloud.
  • Visualize yourself connected to a vast network of triangles surrounding the globe.
  • Keep your attention at the ajna center throughout the meditation. If your attention drops or your mind wanders, silently and  inwardly think the mantram "OM" to refocus. Don’t meditate on “OM”, but simply use it to refocus when needed. 
  • Meditate for as long as you can on this day, but do not direct the energy anywhere. The Masters of Wisdom will know where it is needed most.
The Cause of Stress Today
The stress which exists in the world today is a result of competition and fear—the fear of failure, disease, death, war, calamity, and economic disruption. The pressure that these fears put on humanity inevitably results in psychosomatic diseases. The cure lies in a re-establishing of equilibrium. When we establish equilibrium in our lives through a restructuring of our political, economic and social institutions, we will find that the health of humanity will improve dramatically. We will not have to spend enormous sums of money maintaining health. In fact, illness prevention will become the norm. Disease can generally be prevented more easily than it can be cured.

Transmission Meditation

Q&A with Benjamin Creme

Q. Is Transmission meditation work particularly important now while we prepare for the emergence of Maitreya? Will it be just as valuable after the emergence?

A. It is impossible to overemphasize the importance of the work of Transmission Meditation groups. This is probably the most important work that all of us can easily be engaged in, whatever other activities we might have in connection with the Plan or whatever other service activity we might be involved in. At present it is of vital importance in creating a pool of energy and, in conjunction with meditation and prayer, helping to invoke the Christ (Maitreya) into the outer arena of the world, to enable him to begin his mission in the full open sense of the word.

Transmission work will most certainly be useful after the official appearance of Maitreya and the Masters. In fact, it is a continuous activity into the New Age and beyond. The Masters in their own high way are transmitting energies from higher sources 24 hours a day. It is the major work of Hierarchy and knows no end.


We encourage you to first learn about the meditation from the sources below, and then connect with the meditation group coordinator for your region (see regional links above) to find out how to participate in a Transmission Meditation. You'll receive a referral to any groups near you as well as to a national Zoom call to actually experience the meditation.
