Fundamentals of Theosophy:
Interpenetrating the dense matter of our physical world are other “higher” planes or fields composed of finer grades of matter vibrating at higher frequencies. In the same way, man also has “higher” fields composed of these finer grades of matter interpenetrating his dense, physical body, or “vehicle.” Today’s study group discussion will cover man’s seven fields and their conveyances, or vehicles of expression.

The Third Fundamental Proposition

Fundamentals of Theosophy: The Cyclic Law of the Universe and Identity with the Oversoul: The Third Proposition states that we each are connected as a spark of the Divine to the Universal Oversoul. As such, every spark, or soul, must travel through its own specifically designated time span or cycle in this world until that spark is “extinguished” and returns to be absorbed into the Oversoul. How does this last Proposition affect our attitude to our own current personal journey and purpose? Continue reading

Fundamentals of Theosophy: What do high and low tides, night and day, and life and death, for example, all have in common?

Problem Solving for Occultists

A Workshop with Kurt Leland

Saturday, November 4, 2017
9:30 AM – 3:00 PM

We often hear or read about subtle bodies and planes. For most of us this information remains in the realm of the theoretical unless we have had an out-of-body experience, near-death experience, or some other mystical experience in which we learn we are more than our physical body. Yet we use these subtle bodies all the time: Continue reading

Power of Thought

Sunday Afternoon Public Programs
March 19, 3:00 PM  •  Group Study

An early member of the Theosophical Society wrote that thought “is a power possessed by all, but intelligently used as yet by few.” Thought by itself can be used positively or negatively and is one of the ways we generate karma. Today’s group study discussion will center on the nature and effects of thought.

Developing Spiritual Wisdom

Sunday Afternoon Public Programs
March 12, 3:00 PM  •  A video with Pablo Sender

In this video, Pablo Sender explores going beyond concepts to directly experience the spiritual life. He explains that while the teachings help to change our perspective, we must raise our consciousness to a region that is beyond the senses in order to discover the innate wisdom of our spiritual nature. Theosophy teaches that there is just one universal consciousness and that each of us expresses only a fraction of that greater universal Self. We must transcend our physical, emotional, and mental natures in order to directly know that greater life.
