What are they?

In The Aetherius Society we mark certain important spiritual events throughout the year with commemoration services.

These inspiring services generally include mystic visualization, prayer, mantra, readings of words of wisdom – and often the playing of recordings of communications channeled through Dr. George King while he was in a trance state of meditation known as samadhi. Some commemorations may also include a video presentation, or an address given by one of our Ministers, Priests or Bishops. 

After the Service there is usually a toast to celebrate the event, and an opportunity to meet and talk with other spiritually-minded people on the path.

Prayer is one of the most important practices in Aetherius Society teachings; it is a way of invoking and sending out spiritual energy in order to help yourself and others. 

If you are not familiar with the prayers we use during these Services, we have prayer sheets on hand for anyone to use. Alternatively, you may wish to just focus on the experience and allow the energy to flow through you. Either way, if you come with an open heart and mind, it can be a powerful spiritual experience. 

In The Aetherius Society we also use mantras. Mantra is the chanting of sacred sounds.

If you have not been initiated into the mantras or the mudras (hand positions) we use during our Services, we request that you remain silent and just allow the energy to flow through you. The mantra initiation CD/audio download is available here. Once you have listened to the initiation given by Dr. King, you will be able to join in with the chanting of these sacred sounds when you attend.


In this 72-minute recording, Master of Yoga Dr. George King will initiate you into no less than eleven mantras of great power and beauty.
