About Us

The Auckland Theosophical Centre.

The Theosophical Society was established in Auckland in 1892 with the object of promoting the exploration of Theosophy in the community. Theosophy is a Greek word which translates to Divine Wisdom. The Theosophical Society today maintains that there has always been knowledge of this Wisdom Tradition, traces of which can be found in all the religions of the world, in the sacred texts left by the Ancients, in the myths and traditions of each country and the discoveries by modern science. As individuals and as an organisation we endeavour to explore these traditions so we may come to know Who we are, Where we are going and Why we are here.

We hold study programs where we invite all who are interested to join us in our exploration of the Divine Wisdom and through that come to know our Self. We also hold programmes for members should you wish to join the Society. We endeavour to help the community through various types of services including through the Theosophical Order of Service in New Zealand

The Society imposes no dogmatic view on its members. We respect the right of each individual’s point of view on their own journey of understanding and ask that those that participate in our programmes do the same for others present.

Our Mission

To serve humanity by cultivating an ever deepening understanding and realisation of the Ageless Wisdom, spiritual self-transformation, and the Unity of all Life.

Our Objects:

The Society has Three Objects which express what we are endeavouring to accomplish and how we do this. These objects date back to the founding of the Society over 100 years ago. They are:

  1. To form a nucleus of the Universal brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
  2. To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.
  3. To investigate the unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in humanity
