Le Bonfin was then an isolated countryside in the pine forests, uncultivated, without much value. In this place, which was not easy to access at the time, but which was always sunny, the Master wished to establish a centre for spiritual renewal, a place for the study and application of the Initiatic truths, and above all a home for brotherly life.
Over the years and with the goodwill of its members, Le Bonfin has become a flowered and wooded estate, decorated with vegetable gardens, orchards, vineyards, olive trees….
A large, spacious and bright hall has been built and expanded to accommodate fraternal gatherings. Various premises have emerged according to the needs of community life: kitchen, bakery, greenhouses, workshops, dormitories, bedrooms, chalets, areas dedicated to reading and study, music, choral singing, the arts, etc. The campsite has been structured and extended to include caravanning. This infrastructure is constantly being modernized, embellished and further diversified.
All this was only possible thanks to the skills and participation of all.
For decades, Le Bonfin, the international congress centre of the Universal White Brotherhood, has welcomed members of the Universal White Brotherhood associations from all five continents in spring (one month) and throughout summer (three months). Every year, hundreds of men and women of all ages and of all cultural, social, philosophical and religious backgrounds, all united by the same ideal, share a rich, vibrant and warm fraternal life, of exchanges and common activities.
By listening every day to the Master’s lectures, recorded until 1985 in audio or video, they discover how to harmoniously nourish all the components of their being: physical, emotional, intellectual, moral, spiritual. And in this blessed atmosphere, they participate in consciously creating together an intense spiritual radiation that calls the whole earth to unity and is a precursor to a golden age.
The daily activities at Le Bonfin, as in all fraternal centers*, take place according to the principles given by Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov. The Mediterranean climate is radiant and the morning meditations on the Prayer Rock during the sunrise are an enchantment and leave wonderful and beautiful impressions for the whole day and for the rest of one’s life.
