The Aetherius Society was founded in the 1950s by Englishman George King, whose followers believe he received psychic messages from outer space. In 1960 King came to New Zealand, and on 24 December he identified Mt Wakefield, near Aoraki/Mt Cook, as one of 19 mountains worldwide charged with cosmic energy. Here pilgrims from the New Zealand branch of the Aetherius Society stand near the charged spot on Mt Wakefield in 2006, sending prayer and healing to the world.
