International Summer Assembly 2012
The Summer Assemblies are the culmination of our annual group work. The opportunity to live together, to meet the Sunrise, to dance Paneurhythmy, to meditate, to discuss, to have friendly meetings and to link with Nature make the Summer camp one of the most joyful and unforgettable events in our life. It serves as a conclusion of the spiritual work during the year and sows the seeds for the next year.
Up to now we have had eleven International Summer Assemblies on the sacred mountain Rila in Bulgaria. In them every day starts with meeting the Sunrise. I lead the group in welcoming the new day with a Sunrise Ceremony – linking with the Highest Divine World, meditations on the Divine Masters and Divine Mother, warm-hearted prayers and formulas, and uplifting songs.
Through the Sun we link with the Solar Logos and the Cosmic-spiritual Sun at the centre of the Universe. The Divine Masters and the Divine Mother are Rays from this Cosmic-spiritual Sun. We link with them and receive their impulses for the New Era and the New Humankind. This ceremony has great significance. It is a model of meeting the New Era – linking first with the Highest Divine World, then with the Cosmic Beings to receive their Energy, and thirdly to bring this Energy into the world for Humankind.
Meeting the Sunrise on Rila
Another of the main activities of the day is the sacred dance Paneurhythmy. It is a heavenly dance bringing sacred vibrations on Earth and raising the participants to higher states of Being. When performed properly, the Paneurhythmy could become: Dance-Exodus – taking us out of the restricted earthly consciousness; Dance-Meditation – linking us with the energies of the Earth and the Sun; Dance-Ascent to higher states of consciousness within the Universal Soul; Dance-Initiation into the Heavenly Jerusalem; Dance-Mystery by experiencing the mystery of the Second Coming; Dance-Holy-Communion with the Divine Mother; Dance-Healing-Purification-Illumination of the Earth; Dance-Spiritual-Action by changing the metaphysical vibrations of the earthly culture; Dance-Tree-of-Life – by experiencing the whole vertical structure of the Universe.
On Rila, through special meditations and talks we aim to experience the archetypal structure of the New Reality. We receive keys for understanding and channelling the energies of the greatest mysteries of our time—the ending of the Indo-European cycle and the beginning of the New Era as God’s People living on Sacred Earth.
In the language of the Book of Revelation we activate the celestial archetypes in the last Chapters of the Apocalypse: the Second Coming, the Divine Wedding, the New Heaven and the New Earth, the Tree of Life, the New Jerusalem, the new dwelling place of the Lord with Humankind – The-Lord-is-Here!i
In the year 2012 however the Summer Assembly on Rila has to become the final preparation for the great planetary celebration on December 21, 2012. On the one hand we have to summarise our work for gathering the fruits from the Tree of Life, on the other we have to prepare for meeting the Second Coming of the Divine Masters and the Personifications of the Divine Feminine and entry into the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth. In a sense, the Summer Assembly could be the esoteric celebration of the mysteries of 2012, while the event on December 21, 2012 could be humankind’s planetary celebration of the beginning of the New Era!
The work which could be done on the Summer Assembly this year could be illustrated with examples from the Diary of our International Rila Assembly 2009. I am keeping the original format of the recorded Diary, with all sections in it, in order to give the fragrance and atmosphere of the Assembly. Naturally, in 2012, we have to go further and deepen the metaphysical and mystical dimensions of the planned spiritual activities.
