Wrekin Trust

Wrekin Trust

British based New Age organization, "concerned with the spiritual nature of Man and the Universe. It was not affiliated to any particular doctrine or dogma, did not offer any one way to 'the truth' and helps people find the disciplines most suited to them. After more than 12 years of pioneering courses and conferences on the holistic world view and introductory approaches to various disciplines, the Trust offered in addition, a curriculum for ongoing spiritual training. The inspiration was derived from the medieval concept of the University, which was concerned to find and orchestrate methods and systems of knowledge leading to union with the One, as the term 'Universus,' turned to the One, reveals."

The trust was founded by Sir George Trevelyan in 1971 and was especially concerned with dissolving the barriers between science and religion. The trust had been honored with the Right Livelihood Award, known as the "Alternative Nobel Prize," given in Stockholm for "Work forming an essential contribution to making life more whole, healing the planet, and uplifting humanity."

The trust organized important conferences on science and mysticism, with papers from Glen W. Schaefer, Joscelyn Godwin, and Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan. Last known address: Runnings Park, Croft Bank, West Malvern, Worcestershire WR14 4BP, England.

Wrekin Trust

Wrekin Trust. A New Age movement established in Britain by Sir George Trevelyan (1906–96), who became an advocate of ‘alternative spirituality’ after hearing a lecture on Rudolph Steiner's anthroposophy in 1942. The Trust was established to encourage the exploration of the spiritual nature of humans and of their universe through residential courses, conferences at New Age centres and elsewhere, and through publications.
