The School of Ageless Wisdom

cycles
Cycles is a monthly publication of The School of Ageless Wis-
dom. The members of the School are experimenting with rejoining
astrology and astronomy. The experiment is called Astrochemistry
and involves astronomical calculation to determine cyclic energy
patterns and the works of the Masters D.K., M., and R. as aids in
determining the meaning and significance of these cycles. This
information is intended to be useful in daily life.

a perfect expression of the soul and the
