The Wheel is the archetypal symbol "par excellence" which can be used as a tool for comprehension of yourself and the Universe. This type of "Rosetta Stone" is the life's work of Arnold Keyserling, a Vienesse philosopher, Professor at the Academy of Art, and son of the founder of the School of Wisdom, Count Hermann Keyserling. Find information about the Wheel's relationship to language, grammar, the body, the Zodiac, history, geography, mythology, the solar system, the enneagram, and more!
We want to begin with a little prayer, something that will express our intent to bring the spirits into this place, so that what we do can be for the greatest good, but also so that they can show us how to reach the greatest good. Maybe those of you who can stand up will do that. Here is how we're going to do it. We're going to make some invocation prayers in Dagara, so don't worry if you don't understand what's going on. Take it deep down into your bones where language is naturally understood. We will pray to the spirit of the land here, the spirit of the trees, the waters, the fires, and so on and so forth. After that, we're going to ask that any person who's got a good spirit, a good connection with some power source, and the other side of this reality whom you think can be of great use to the beauty we want to produce by being together here for the next couple of days, you can call that spirit name and invite that spirit to come and be with us throughout this time we're going to spend together.

The inspirational messages on this web provide the kind of relevation that Jung spoke of, a wisdom greater than our own limited human perspective. The prophetic visions herald a coming good of global interconnectedness, individual spirituality, and rapid, profound change. The right brained visions were channelled through an otherwise left brained scholar, Professor Arnold Keyserling, of the Academy of Art, Vienna, Austria. The words came to Keyserling in the 1970s from entities near and far in the Cosmos, shortly before his election as President of the European Association of Humanistic Psychologists. Originally written in German, they were translated into English by the School of Wisdom, and approved by Keyserling. New Age Visions constitutes Volume 1 of the larger School of Wisdom Series of books and records. These messages - which until now have only been shared with an intimate circle of friends and students in Europe and the U.S. - are a source of profound inspiration.
