PETER & ELIZABETH GILL & WAYMARK CENTRE Elizabeth & Peter Gill were two extraordinary people who were among the major forerunners re-awakening the Ancient knowledge and teachings in Ireland. Elizabeth was born in Burma, Educated in England and set up a 200 bed hospital in Holland for displaced people during the 2nd world war. Peter studied engineering in Trinity College Dublin and was assigned to the Technical Branch of the Royal Air Force during the 2nd world war. They established a small centre at the base of Three Rock Mountain in South Dublin in the early 1970’s. There they carried on the work of teaching, meditation and healing. The house became too small for the growing numbers that came there and so they moved to Dunganstown, Co. Wicklow. In this beautiful setting, they opened a centre for teaching the ancient wisdom, for meditation and healing and to organise courses and workshops. There they healed, taught, inspired, counselled and encouraged people in personal growth. It was a large house set in four acres with beautiful grounds and trees. They called it “Waymark”.

Waymark they described as “a way by which a return may be made through raising of consciousness and understanding to the source of all life.” In the sanctuary they kept an everlasting lighted lamp as a visible symbol that their home was dedicated to prayer, meditation and healing. In those days books on esoteric subjects were not easily available in Ireland but they set up a well stocked library and it was free and available to all. They were spiritual pioneers and their work was unique in Ireland at that time and was not generally accepted. As time went by, in a more open society, there was a growing interest and acceptance of esoteric matters and more and more people came to understand and appreciate it. Through their example of dedication to spiritual ideals, they helped many searchers to know themselves as spiritual beings with a special purpose in life. In the words of Peter, their work was grounded on Christian and spiritual values.

They devoted their lives to spiritual work and they brought many advanced spiritual teachers to give courses. They travelled to America and studied the works of Edgar Cayce in Virginia Beach. They met and studied with Flower Newhouse in the USA and with Ormam Michael Ivanov in France. In 1963 they organised their first lecture about Edgar Cayce given by a Col. Frank Adams, who in turn introduced them to the work of Ronald Beesley, from the College of Psycho-Therapeutics at White Lodge, Kent, England. In 1975 Mr Beesley taught the first Spiritual Psychotherapeutics Course in Ireland, in Cloona, Westport, Co Mayo. Over the years they brought many great teachers to Ireland. 

Elizabeth and Peter Gill were Waymaks. Elizabeth was a woman of substance who combined her many qualities to anchor & hold the work undertaken Peter. Her knowledge and respect of the Bible provided the impetus for Peter on his Spiritual path as documented in his book “The Way of a Healer”. He went on to write “Love & Light”, “Reflections” and “Keepers of the Light”. The environment Elizabeth created was the backbone for Peter to work with “the thoughts & ideas” so as to bring through the message of the ancient teachings. Through their combined energies numerous lives have been touched, and the flame of Light in the hearts of many people has found renewal. The legacy of a message carried in this way can never be measured in earthly terms – its resonance carries on through the skeins of time. To have known and worked with these pioneering people has been a privilege and honour.

MR RONALD BEESLEY - COLLEGE OF PSYCHOTHERAPEUTICS The Centre was founded as The College of Psychotherapeutics in 1958 at White Lodge (near Tunbridge Wells, Kent in England) by Ronald P. Beesley (1903 - 1979). Ronald Beesley was a practical mystic. A man well ahead of his time. His work and example pioneered the principles and practise of Spiritual Psychotherapeutics in education and healing, business and health systems. Ronald Beesley lectured, taught widely and published many books. His students were drawn from every walk of life and from many countries. He researched the use of Light, Colour and Sound for healing. He worked with Colour especially as a therapy for Distant Treatment. His aim was to facilitate the safe awakening of intuition and deeper awareness in response to the challenges and changes of our times. In 1991 the College became The Centre of New Directions whose work builds upon the foundation establishes by Ronald Beesley.

PETER GOLDMAN - CENTRE OF NEW DIRECTIONS Peter Goldman qualified as an Osteopath and Nautropath in London in 1963. He studied with Ronald Beesley from 1965 and worked intensively with him until his passing in 1979. Peter was part of the original research into the therapeutic use of Light and Colour as a Distant Treatment Programme. For over 20 years now, Peter has been teaching and lecturing internationally on the philosophy and practise of Spiritual Psychotherapy. He has developed and is teaching an approach to Sound Therapy using the harmonics of Musical Tuning Forks. Peter's aim is to work with healing through the consciousness and to support the awakening of inter-dimensional awareness and whole brain living. His special interest is in research into the subtle properties of light, colour and sound and their place in education and medicine in the 21st Century. Peter Goldman is currently working on a series of handbooks in support of the student opening to the inter-dimensional potential of Colour, Light and Sound.

EDGAR CAYCE Edgar Cayce was an American mystic who possessed the ability to answer questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis and future events while in a trance. These answers came to be known as "life readings" and were usually delivered to individuals while Cayce was hypnotised. This ability gave him the nickname "The Sleeping Prophet". Cayce founded a nonprofit organisation, the Association for Research and Enlightenment that included a hospital and a university. He is credited as being the father of holistic medicine and the most documented psychic of the 20th century. Hundreds of books have been written about him and his life readings for individuals. Cayce became a celebrity toward the end of his life, and he believed the publicity given to his prophecies overshadowed the more important parts of his work, such as healing the sick and studying religion.

MARIE LOUISE LACEY - KNOW YOURSELF THROUGH COLOUR Marie Louise Lacey was a pioneer of colour training in the UK. She trained many therapists in the use of colour treatments and was the author of two books on colour therapy.

Peter Deunov is “the most published Bulgarian author to this day, teaching his followers many physical and breathing exercises for the purpose of remaining healthy and vital. He also promoted vegetarianism for ethical reasons, being against cruelty of any kind. OMRAAM MIKHAEL AIVANHOV was a student of Peter Deunov who brought his teachings to France and Western Europe.

VICKY WALL - AURA-SOMA,  was a practising chiropodist, pharmacist and herbalist was 66 years of age and clinically blind. She had no idea what she was doing when she found her self in her small laboratory and formulating a mixture comprising different layers and colours of the most natural ingredients she could find. In 1984 the name AURA-SOMA® and the vision of its creation, was bestowed upon Vicky Wall. In a series of re-occurring meditative visions - Vicky was given the same message repeatedly - she was told to "go and divide the waters". This marked the birth of 'Equilibrium' . Vicky later reported - "that other hands had guided her own" - she could see neither the beautiful jewels she had spontaneously and inspirationally created nor their possible intended purpose. Even more bewildering to her was the resonant power she felt emanating from them, as they radiated in the sunlight of the following morning - clearly revealing two distinctly separate and different layers. Over a period of a few short years, this in depth analytical approach verified the answers to all these questions and more. With absolute certainty Vicky was able to confirm the premise that "Colour speaks a language of Its own ".
