Is Humanity going through a spiritual crisis – what are possible solutions?

Public Talk & Transmission Meditation

Share International New Zealand

Tuesday 23 October 2018  - 7pm to 9pm

Murray Jensen Room

Throughout history, especially at times of crisis, great spiritual teachers have emerged to show humanity the next step forward.

According to British artist, author and esotericist Benjamin Creme, a group of such spiritual teachers is living now in the modern world. Maitreya, the World Teacher, and his group called ‘the Masters of Wisdom’ are here, not as religious teachers, but to inspire all people, religious and non-religious alike, to create a civilization based on sharing, justice and peace.
