Swami Nityananda of Ganeshpuri.
Swami Nityananda lived in India from around the beginning of the 20th century until 1961. He was a being of incredible, awesome yogic power and capacity. "The goal of spiritual practice is to merge one's individual consciousness into divine consciousness; to merge creative energy into the seat of consciousness. A person established in such a place, in what Nityananda called the chidakash, puts an end to the wanderings and the multiplicities that manifest in the self. A person who lives in the Supreme Self lives beyond space and time and dwells in infinity, where all past lives are known and ended and where all past karmas are dissolved. Such a person lives the pure, beautiful, abundant experience of the Supreme Self." Swami Nityananda was such a person.

Radha Soami Satsang Beas.
Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) is a philosophical organisation based on the spiritual teachings of all religions and dedicated to a process of inner development under the guidance of a spiritual teacher.
In the Indian language, Radha Soami means ' lord of the soul', satsang describes a group that seeks truth, and Beas refers to the town near which the main centre is located in northern India. There are a number of other contemporary movements that use the name 'Radha Soami' but Radha Soami Satsang Beas is not associated with any of them.
RSSB was established in India in 1891 and gradually began spreading to other countries. Today RSSB holds meetings in more than 90 countries worldwide. It is a registered non-profit society with no affiliation to any political or commercial organisations.
The philosophy teaches a personal path of spiritual development which includes a vegetarian diet, abstinence from intoxicants, a moral way of life and the practice of daily meditation. There are no rituals, ceremonies, hierarchies or mandatory contributions, nor are there compulsory gatherings. Members need not give up their cultural identity or religious preference to follow this path.

G I Gurdjieff.
The Gurdjieff Foundation, the largest organisation directly linked to Mr. Gurdjieff, was organised by Jeanne de Salzmann during the early 1950s and led by her, in cooperation with other direct pupils, until her death in 1990. From that year until his recent passing in August 2001, Dr. Michel de Salzmann directed the network of Gurdjieff Foundations, societies, and institutes. The work of The Gurdjieff Foundation continues today with the guidance of direct pupils and the next generation. The Foundation is registered under the name “The Gurdjieff Foundation” in the USA, by the name “The Gurdjieff Society” in the UK, and in France under the name “Institut Gurdjieff.”

Self Realization Fellowship.
"We are all part of the One Spirit. When you experience the true meaning of religion, which is to know God, you will realise that God is your Self, and that God exists equally and impartially in all beings." – Paramahansa Yogananda. For three quarters of a century, Self-Realization Fellowship, a worldwide religious organisation with international headquarters in Los Angeles, has been dedicated to carrying on the spiritual and humanitarian work of Paramahansa Yogananda . Through our worldwide service, we seek to foster a spirit of greater understanding and goodwill among the diverse people and nations of our global family, and to help those of all cultures and creeds to realise and express more fully in their lives the beauty, nobility, and divinity of the human spirit.

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov.
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov, French philosopher and teacher of Bulgarian origin (1900-1986), went to France in 1937. One of the most striking aspects in Aivanhov's books is the enormous variety of ways in which he presents the one central question of man and his growth in perfection. Whatever the question under discussion it is invariably dealt with in terms of how man can better understand himself and conduct his life. And if the word can have such a reach, it is that he was himself, during all his existence, the most living illustration of his Teaching.

Eckhart Tolle.
Eckhart Tolle is emerging as one of the most original and inspiring spiritual teachers of our time. He travels and teaches throughout the world. He is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition, but excludes none. His profound yet simple and practical teachings have helped thousands of people find inner peace and greater fulfilment in their lives. At the core of his teachings lies the transformation of individual and collective human consciousness - a global spiritual awakening. Eckhart was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of twenty-nine, a profound spiritual transformation virtually dissolved his old identity and radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation and marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work with individuals and small groups as a counsellor and spiritual teacher. He is the author of ‘The Power of Now’, a #1 New York Times bestseller that has been widely recognised as one of the most influential spiritual books of our time. It has been translated into over 30 languages.

The Sufi Order UK.
"Sufism is not a religion or a philosophy, it is neither deism nor atheism, nor is it a moral, nor a special kind of mysticism, being free from the usual religious sectarianism. If ever it could be called a religion, it would only be as a religion of love, harmony, and beauty." - Hazrat Inayat Khan. The Sufi Order (UK) draws its inspiration from the work and teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan, Pir Vilayat and Pir Zia.

The Golden Sufi Centre is the vehicle for the work of the Naqshbandiyya-Mujaddidiyya Order of Sufism. The purpose of The Golden Sufi Centre is to make available the teachings of this lineage of Sufism.

Grand Lodge of Freemasonry.
Freemasonry is a fraternal tradition based on Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth; and on the Perfectibility of humankind. The Grand Lodge upholds the equality of both men and women as practicing Masons, without distinction of race, creed, colour, gender or social conditions. Freemasonry recognises all those sincere seekers of truth, who work for humanity and wish to become better examples to others in the conduct of their lives. Freemasonry offers a rich and ancient cultural heritage in allegory and symbol for our spiritual education and progress along the path of unfoldment. The Grand Lodge has made the study of the Masonic heritage and its spiritual insights a keystone of our work, preserving the tradition inaugurated by the Great Theosophist Dr Annie Besant in 1902. We are a forward-looking Order established in Britain and Europe with Lodges in London and around the country.
