Event Theme

School of the Wisdom Session
Event Person: 

Who are we? What is the purpose of life? How do we actualize our potential? These are questions that thoughtful people have asked since time immemorial. This session of the School of the Wisdom will present a comprehensive study of the teachings of H. P. Blavatsky and her Adept teachers on the nature of our spiritual essence, its evolutionary unfoldment, and what we can do in daily life to consciously participate in this cosmic process. The first part of the course will focus on the metaphysics and philosophy of the subject, while the second part will explore the practical application of the teachings, including exercises that lead to self-knowledge through awareness and meditation.

Recommended reading: The following books by H. P. Blavatsky: Key to TheosophyThe Voice of the Silence, and Esoteric Instructions (compiled by Michael Gomes); and Evolution of the Higher Consciousness by Pablo Sender

He is currently at the Krotona Institute of Theosophy in Ojai, California, where he works in Theosophical education. An international speaker, he has presented programs and retreats in India, Europe, Oceania, and the three Americas, and has written books in Spanish and English.

The School of the Wisdom aims at bringing each student to survey life ‘from the centre’, which is intuitive awareness. An intense sense of Life must always accompany every true student. There can be no Wisdom without an ever increasing sense of Wonder.

Essential in the progress towards Wisdom is a growing intimacy with all aspects of Nature. The message which each tree, flower, animal, meadow, sea, sky, and cloud has, must be listened to and understood.
