Tibetan Foundation

Tibetan Foundation

The Tibetan Foundation began in June of 1982 when Janet McClure established contact with the Ascended Master Djwal Khul. He asked her to assist him in his work of helping people in their own spiritual progress and bringing about the coming New Age. Previously she had studied with the Brotherhood of the White Light, from whom she received a doctorate degree, and was happy to join in the work. Djwal Khul is the same master who was originally identified by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) as one of the spiritual hierarchy and later was credited with channeling a number of volumes through Alice A. Bailey (1880-1949). Bailey generally referred to Djwal Khul as The Tibetan.

While McClure was generally thought of as channeling The Tibetan, she spoke of his overshadowing her. Overshadowing is a special connection by which they became permanently linked. The Tibetan was thought to be anchored in McClure's head. He could speak through her without the necessity of her entering a trance state.

The foundation was established in Youngstown, Arizona, but soon developed affiliate centers in Colorado and California. Once launched on her new endeavor, McClure channeled a considerable amount of material from The Tibetan that was published in a number of booklets. She also began to channel from other beings such as Vywamus and Lenduce. She was among the first of the channels to receive material from both the spiritual hierarchy and the space hierarchy led by Ashtar. Receiving from both hierarchies would become common in the 1990s. The channels associated with the foundation would become part of the post-New Age Movement that was focused in the Sedona Journal of Emergence.

McClure channeled only eight years before passing away in 1990. However, by that time other channels had become associated with the Tibetan Foundation and had begun to channel the various masters previously channeled by McClure, especially The Tibetan and Vywamus. Light Technology Publishing, the parent company that produces the Sedona Journal of Emergence, published many of McClure's volumes of channeled material and keeps them in print at present.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
