A Conversation With Benjamin Creme
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Benjamin Creme began studying art at an early age, developing into an accomplished painter in the ‘modernist’ style. His paintings have been exhibited in a number of prestigious galleries. Throughout his early years Creme also studied various aspects of esoteric philosophy, in particular the teachings released in the late 1800s through Helena Blavatsky and more recently through Alice A. Bailey. Although these teachings led him to believe in the existence of the ‘Masters of Wisdom’—a group of perfected men who are the custodians of the ‘Divine Plan’ for this planet.
In 1974 Creme gave his first public talk on the emergence, and soon began giving weekly lectures in London. By invitation only, he began touring Europe, and then in 1980 he spoke to large audiences in several major US cities. His tours now include Western and Eastern Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and the US. He has been interviewed on more than 300 radio and television programs in the US alone.
