World Invocation Day (Festival of Goodwill)

Spring, during the full moon in Sagittarius
World Invocation Day, also known as the Festival of Goodwill, is a holiday observed by the Arcane School and the churches and organizations descended from it. The Arcane School was established by Alice A. Bailey in 1923 as a training school for adult men and women in meditation techniques and the development of spiritual potential.
The focus of this observance is a prayer written by Bailey, known as the Great Invocation, which is recited by people at meetings around the world. This festival is the forerunner of recent examples of "worldwide prayer meetings," such as the Harmonic Convergence in 1988.
