The Masters Footsteps with William Meader 3 7Spiritual initiations are the milestones of development upon the ladder of evolution, and each can be viewed as a portal leading to enlightenment. Each initiation indicates the soul has taken a measure of control over some facet of the personality (ego).  They are known and proven markers of spiritual attainment toward becoming a Master of Wisdom.  It is therefore true to say that initiations represent The Master’s Footsteps, pointing the way toward liberation.

In this course, William Meader will closely consider the steps to be taken when on the Path of Initiation. He will deeply examine each of the initiations and the changes in consciousness that they entail. The goal of this course is to deepen your understanding of the ladder of evolution, as well as your place upon it.  Below are some of the additional topics that will be explored. We hope you can join us.

Additional topics include:

  • The measures of consciousness that determine readiness for initiation
  • Applying the Rod of Initiation upon the human causal body (soul vehicle)
  • Clues as to which rung of the evolutionary ladder we stand upon
  • Methods designed to transform the personality in preparation for initiation
