About Hilde De Smet
When I was 19 years old and started to meditate, I was introduced to the book of Alice A. Bailey, "Initiation human and solar". I continued borrowing her books from the public library, although at that time I didn't understand much of them. But they spoke to me, on a deeper level, they touched me and awakened something inside of me. ..
At that time I was a disciple of Sri Chinmoy, a spiritual teacher who had grown up in the ashram of Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry, India. I was a medical student then and for 5 years I travelled to New York twice a year to visit my teacher.
After this intense period in my life, I came in contact with several other spiritual teachers from East and West. I felt a strong connection with the work of Tareth and I studied the traditions of the Q'ero Indians of Peru and the Amazone tribes, the Toltec teachings from Mexico, as well as Taoism. I am very inspired by the books of H.P. Blavatsky and Dion Fortune and I am interested in Western occult and magical traditions and Celtic culture.
When I read the book "Letters on Occult Meditation" by Alice Bailey, I was intrigued by the chapter about the future meditation schools. Somewhere deep inside I knew I wanted to be part of this vision.
Only after many years of searching, personal and spiritual growth, I finally gave answer to this inner call. In August 2019 I stopped my practice as a medical and naturopathic doctor.
With this school in Jauchelette, Jodoigne, I hope
- together with a lot of other projects all over the world - to make a beginning of these future schools of occult meditation and give people a taste of the temple life .
I plan to invite Belgian and international speakers and teachers in the near future.
