The Temple of Purification is in the etheric realm over the island of Cuba. It is presided over by Archangel Zadkiel and Holy Amethyst. The retreat is also the place of the Order of Melchizedek and of the eternal priesthood of all religions of the world.

The temple on Atlantis

Before the sinking of Atlantis, the Temple of Purification was a physical retreat for the priests and priestesses of the Order of Zadkiel. These Masters of Invocation used not only the focus of the flame but also the accumulated good of their causal bodies for the transmutation of misqualified energies on earth. Journeying to and fro, even into the astral realms, these dedicated servants were, and are, a self-appointed clean-up committee who remove the debris, especially in the large cities of the world, so that mankind may continue to function.


There are seven temples at this retreat. The complex is composed of a central temple with seven pillars surrounded by six lesser temples. The architecture and design of the central temple is very similar to that of Archangel Michael and Faith at Banff. The temple is circular with a golden dome, having four entrances with a pyramid-shaped altar in the center where the focus of the violet flame blazes. The decoration throughout the temples is effected with amethyst inlaid in gold, while the golden dome is plain.

Saint Germain

At the time of Atlantis, Saint Germain served in the Order of Lord Zadkiel as a high priest in the Temple of Purification. Prior to the sinking of the continent he was called by his own teacher, the Great Divine Director, to carry the flame of freedom from this temple to a place of safety in the Carpathian foothills in Transylvania. When Atlantis sank, the Temple of Purification was withdrawn to the etheric plane.

Saint Germain later returned to the location of this retreat when he was embodied as Christopher Columbus, who set forth in his ships to discover a new world. He was magnetized to this retreat by the flame of freedom in the etheric Temple of Purification and by the inner memory of serving in that temple on Atlantis. He studied here between embodiments and also during his embodiments while leaving his body in periods of sleep. The impetus for coming to those islands was the impetus of freedom, helping him to chart a new course for a new land.

The keynote of the retreat is the “Blue Danube Waltz,” inspired upon Johann Strauss by Saint Germain.
