Journey of a School

 

by Zayne Marston

HAPPY 25th ANNIVERSARY, SCHOOL OF THE GOLDEN DISCS!

In light of the occasion, I spent some time reflecting on the School, how it began, where it’s been, and where we are heading now. It was fun to actually write about it and realize how much was accomplished, how many souls we touched in collaboration with the masters and the Inner Ashram. . What an honor it’s been to be an integral part of it all, and a cosmic comrade to others who join us in this fascinating, sometimes harrowing, yet enlightening journey to awakening.

Wishing you all much joy and fall colors,

Zayne, Director

Journey of a School

By Zayne Marston

Connection!

 

 It seems like a fairy tale as I reflect back upon the early beginnings of the School of the Golden Discs. It was 1991 when Moriah and I first seeded her vision to open a mystery school , to cultivate multi-dimensional consciousness and enter into the vast domain of the soul.

A major purpose of the School was to anchor the teachings and transmissions of the Tibetan in form and disseminate.

Another thrust was to build a community of kindred spirits, to foster cosmic camaraderie where we could share our transformation process and dialogue about the challenges and breakthroughs encountered through opening to the new paradigm of consciousness.

Feeling a cosmic nudge from the Tibetan (Djwhal Khul, our dear headmaster) to open the School, Moriah agreed to commit, but only if she had a partner. As fate would have it, we mysteriously met six months later in March 1991, and I joined the quest.

Magic happens!

 

 October 1991 we began our first channeled Q&A, Chat with the Tibetan in the living room of our home in Montague Center, MA. It was just five of us then, including two friends of Moriah I had recently met, Nancy Howe and Nina Simolita; and a friend of mine, Gregg Crawford, who I invited after a talk, heart deep in the YMCA swimming pool.

We recorded each session on cassette tapes and began to grow our library of metaphysical thought—the contemporary teachings of Djwhal Khul for whom Moriah was a conscious channel.

I remember asking the Tibetan, Why Moriah? And he playfully replied that aside from her brilliant psychological filter, she was also an unruly Aquarian, which was apparently just the right ingredient needed for breaking up the status quo—the crust of collective consciousness that encases the emerging paradigm of great possibility and enlightened consciousness. Lol.

I remember one of the first topics the Tibetan spoke of was that time was speeding up.  We couldn’t quite relate until a couple of years later when the acceleration was undeniable.

DK-Ville and the Core Program

 

During the next year we had Chats every Sunday followed by tea and treats and passionate discussion. A community of kindred souls began to constellate around this shared experience. We called it DK-Ville, and a new language developed around these metaphysical explorations.

This led to our first, highly transformative 9-month Core Program of soul connection and consciousness expansion a year later. We met three days per month from Sept- 1992 to June 1993.

 Magic happened in this program through the alchemy of group synergy, Moriah’s guidance and insight, and the Tibetan’s energy and profound teachings. This inspired us to continue with the in-depth program intensives and seminars.

Oh yes, at break time we traveled to power spots, the natural wonders of the region, to help ground the experience and enhance the vibration. I called this essential component, Stalking the Magical Realm.

School moves to Shelburne Falls

 

The School followed our move to Shelburne Falls in 1994 and we spent the next 13 years giving monthly Chats with the Tibetan and seminars based upon topics generated through Moriah’s widely acclaimed 10 year column in Wisdom Magazine called Soul Connection. 68 of over 80 of these brilliant articles were compiled into Moriah’s second book, Earth School: A Fresh Perspective of the Human Condition ©2006.

 Moriah’s first and riveting autobiographical book was previously published in 2002, Soul Searching with Djwhal Khul, the Tibetan.

For several years we published a journal, Transformational Times, filled with articles from Moriah and the Tibetan and enriched with poetry, illustrations,Zayne’s qigong column, True Confessions of a Chi Addict, and contributions from our community. As our web presence increased and technology took hold more, the journal went electric and evolved to an e-zine.

There was outreach and travel too. The School delivered Seminar Intensives and Chats in the Northeast—Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York City, Vermont and Western MA. And the Pacific Northwest too! —Seattle WA, Portland and Eugene, Oregon (many thanks to Dr Stephen Kimberly for making the NW connection happen).

A move to Colrain country: school is built and programs expand

 

In 2007 we built our school/home on a colonial apple orchard upon an energy vortex with staggering views that drew us to this sanctuary in the foothills of the Green Mountains. This was the place to begin the next step of the School.  We moved in one frigid day February 2008 and gave our first Chat there the following weekend.

During the next seven years, right up to just three months before Moriah’s ascension, the School offered over 30, Three-Day Seminar Intensives, many of which were based on topics addressed in her last published book with the Tibetan, MAKING THE SHIFT, A Field Guide of the Emerging Consciousness, Volume 1.  At the time of her passing she was working on Volume II. Stay tuned for future release!

 

In addition, we delivered over 80 monthly Chats with the Tibetan and a variety of day-long seminars, including seminar trips to Attila’s Place in Long Island City, Daniel Neusom’s Sacred Light Fellowship in Times Square, Unity of New York in Manhattan, and others.

 Tele-Groups: Where souls come together.

 

To extend our global reach, the School offered What the Heaven is Happening?! The Cosmic Perspective Phone Group—where souls come together—with Moriah and the Tibetan.  

This exploration inspired the formation of many other tele-groups exploring a variety of topics Moriah wrote about, and it was exciting to connect with those around the country, including a dear African woman from the desert of southern Africa! She had discovered Moriah and our School through her article on-line about Self-love—ahh, the wonders of the Internet!

The feeling of a global village connection, all theses souls coming together on the Call, beyond space, was deliciously rewarding and so Aquarian Age.

Transformational Times Membership Site

 

Another program was The Transformational Times Community Membership Site. It was developed to provide recordings of the Tibetans teachings, Moriah’s writing, and those Saturday morning, over-a-cup-of-coffee, phone groups. The Calls went very deep for those who participated—from East to West coast, including Hal from Vancouver…hi Hal, miss you brother!

The School continues: Transformational Times Healing Center introduced

 

Following the passing of our beloved founder and “guiding light,” the School continued as staff members Eleni, Nancela, and myself offered three, day-long seminars on grief, loss, and finding light in the dark night of the soul. The deep sharing that we experienced in such an intimate, energized setting was profoundly healing.

And so emerged a new theme—healing—healing and integrating all dimensions of our being, particularly the emotional body.  This inspired us to add Transformational Times Healing Center, to the title, School of the Golden Discs.

The last 18 months have been a time to go deep into the feeling of the pain and upheaval of staggering loss, and find a way to work with grief and heal, discover and acquire new strengths. It’s been a time of tears and joy, licking wounds and learning, surrender and release, grace and blessings, self-discovery, trust, faith, and renewed connection with self, each other, and the spirit plane. 

In part, the sound current has served as a vehicle for this, which has prompted new explorations using Kirtan devotional music and the sound of voice (Eleni), Wisdom Healing sound qigong (Zayne), and shamanic journey (Nancela) to uplift, by-pass the trappings of the mind, raise our vibration and heal. Thus our monthly Sound Healing Saturday was born last December and continues to evolve.  

Making Contact

 

The general theme of the School for the next year or two will be making connection and contact, with our souls and to each other and the spirit plane as well. Stay tuned for announcements of new programs pertinent to the theme. The staff is here to assist through group and individual process, offering spiritual and shamanic counseling, mind-body-spirit integration, tele-groups and gatherings.

Also, Eleni is an emerging channel for the Tibetan and is beginning to share her clear and powerful connection with our dear headmaster. Come join us on the Sunday Soul Circle.

In the spirit of the School and Moriah’s legacy, we are called to stretch our consciousness, relax into the evolving edge of our discomfort, feel it all, act upon our soul’s passion as a living prayer, journey inward, find the gold in our authenticity, believe in ourselves…and the Divine Plan, share our gifts, express our magical child and return to innocence, the natural state—All is perfect, all is well. And so it is! Haola!

Thank you all for your loving support, participation and camaraderie through the years!
