Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Lucis Trust (originally known as Lucifer Publishing) is a non-profit organization incorporated in New York State, created in 1920 by Alice Bailey and her husband Foster, to manage the business of publishing Mrs. Bailey's twenty-five esoteric books. Its headquarters are in New York City (at the 24th floor of 120 Wall Street), London (Lucis Press Ltd.) and Geneva (Lucis Trust Association).

In addition to continuing to publish her books worldwide, Lucis Trust's activities also include a correspondence school based on her teachings (known as the Arcane School), a lending library of esoteric books known as Lucis Trust Libraries, a publishing house called Lucis Publishing Companies, Lucis Productions, World Goodwill and Triangles[1].

Today it has around 6,000 members, and an estimated annual revenue of $600,000.

The World Goodwill group, founded in 1932, is particularly important among Lucis Trust's activities, as it has been recognized by the United Nations as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), and is represented at regular briefing sessions at the United Nations in New York and Geneva. Lucis Trust is therefore a member of the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

In part because of this presence of Lucis Trust in the United Nations System, along with explicit reference by former Assistant Secretary General Robert Muller in his writings to Bailey's philosophy, some have accused the UN of having a New Age ideology and agenda.[2][3][4][5][6]

A secondary headquarter of Lucis Trust is in Reeuwijk, Netherlands (Lucis Trust Stichting)[7]. Other esoteric associations tightly connected to Lucis Trust are the School of Ageless Wisdom in Arlington, TX[8], the School for Esoteric Studies in Asheville, NC[9], the Seven Ray Institute in Union City, NJ[10], the Great Bear Astrological Center in Eugene, OR[11], the Escuela Huber de Astrologia in Adliswil, Switzerland[12], the Associazione Culturale dei Triangoli e della Buona Volontà Mondiale in Rome, Italy[13]. The main locations of meetings organized by Lucis Trust are nowadays The Grosvenor Hotel in London[14], the Williams Club[15] and the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine[16], both located in New York.
