Alice A. Bailey (1880-1949) From her conservative British background, Alice Bailey's life led her in many directions, but always in one direction - towards the time she acquired a synthesis of outlook and understanding, and an absolute conviction that one divine life pervades and animates the one humanity; that the Plan for humanity requires the cooperation and service of trained and dedicated human beings intelligently informed about world affairs, in collaboration with those who form the spiritual Hierarchy, the inner government of the planet. Her life work became an integral part of this synthesis and this realization. Without in the least losing any of her very human qualities and involvement, she took up her soul work and committed thirty years to the production of the books that constitute a continuation of the Ageless Wisdom teaching. Alice Bailey founded The Arcane School and The Lucis Trust which successfully operates today based on the principles formulated over seventy years ago.
