From its foundation by the Metropolitan College, the Metropolitan Study Group has always understood that its purpose is to seek truth and perfection, and thereby heal our fellow men and women, and the world in which we live.
From 1976 until February 2020, our meetings were held in the headquarters of our Society at Stanfield Hall in Hampstead, London.
With the sale of this property, we sought a new location to provide an appropriate setting for the work that we hope to do in the future. Our search has now been completed and we will use premises at the Atlantis Bookshop, 49a Museum Street, Bloomsbury, London, from October 2021. This location has had a particularly close association with many of those people linked with the story of the Metropolitan College and will provide a sympathetic environment for its Study Group.
Our experience from the recent programme of Zoom meetings and the publication of our Pamphlets, is that there is a desire from our members for a greater range of contributions at our meetings. For example, by including presentations that blend papers and online content, meditations, music and performance.
In this manner, we will be providing a range of events that aim to offer a variety of experiences and formats, building upon the strengths of different environments both online and in person. From our online study groups that continue to build in popularity; through to our Rosicrucian Salons that bring together different experiential and artistic mediums; and in future also workshops that help people develop areas of interest most relevant to the Rosicrucian tradition.
