Vernal Retreat: June 23-24, 2018

Celebration of Beauty in the Arts and Nature

Vernal Retreat

The Vernal Festival begins the first of May with the inauguration of the Angels of Nature descending as low as the etheric world to take over certain duties. These Angels are the saviors of the physical side of our earth and consciously renew the earth, bringing forth new species of life forms and new aspects that affect our earth both physically and superphysically. At this time the spiritual servers of the Lord Christ withdraw from their closeness to us to receive their refreshment in the higher worlds where they will continue to serve and love us. The Vernal Festival is a celebration of the changing of orders, and so we honor the Beauty of God through arts and nature on the solstice ushering the change from spring to summer.

We want to see the beauty that God is painting for us constantly to our visible sight and feel with all our inner beings what is behind that outer beauty.
