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.
