Dr. Sophia will introduce to us the “Great Trials of Initiation,” which are part of our heritage, not only currently that which we learn through Spiritual Science, but also from the past Temples of great Mystery Initiation Wisdom. In this first of three initial sessions by Dr. Sophia, she will begin with the “Trial by Fire.”

In each of her sessions – May 10, May 24, June 7 – she will explore with us the exoteric and esoteric gems that come through lived experiences and vast research. We shall also learn about the impact of “Trial by Solitude” as we approach the threshold of these great “Trials of Initiation.” She will also touch upon aspects of how we can consciously investigate our biographies from insights garnered from experiencing these events in our destinies and karma. We are not alone in our struggles for higher awakening.

Dr. Sophia explores with us destiny paths of awakening higher capacities well traveled by heralds from our lineage: sacrificing, suffering, and becoming through the holy and sacred “Trials of Initiation.”
