Presentation: Discovery of Alice Bailey’s magazine called “The World Observer”

It was a short lived magazine, of 10 issues running monthly  from July 1937 to April 1938. It’s purpose was to foster a sense of world unity, and the spirit of being a global citizen. To share and highlight stories of goodwill, humanity, oneness and the goodness of the human spirit in all different parts of the world. To truly see the One Humanity by being “The World Observer”. In addition to exploring the contents of this magazine we will look at the early foundations of how this magazine came into being, by exploring some letters Alice wrote soliciting articles and contributions for it.


Rose Bates from an early age was attracted to the Ageless Wisdom in the form of ritual and study. She started this journey as a child in the Rosicrucian Order, being privileged to have an active role in mystical ritual. During the crisis of adolescence, she deeply immersed herself in the works of Alice Bailey thereby finding a wider world view with meaning and purpose to life. During this time she also engaged in an investigation of Theosophy, Esoteric Tarot and Qabalah. Rose wants to see active expression of Soul Life become manifest in groups and individuals, where it can transform both minds and, more importantly, Hearts (the living Abundance of Self).
