Introductory Theosophy Course
Through theosophical study and practice, you come to explore the fundamental questions of life; - Who am I? Why am I here? What is my Purpose? Where am I going? Understanding some of the questions gives our life a context few people have, helping us to understand why the world is as it is, and open our understanding of reality to a far greater vision.
In the Introductory Course to Theosophy you can join others on this path of discovery. In a very practical way you will find that theosophy can help to simplify, clarify, and enrich your perspective of life and self awareness.
The Introductory course covers all of the following:
- The Roadmap of Self discovery and the practical steps to get there.
- Knowledge of the Self - Who am I, Where am I going, What is my purpose?
- Understanding the importance of experience in respect to information and knowledge.
- The importance of living in tune with reality.
- Fields of Awareness - Living in the Present.
- Tuning in with the Universal Energy Systems.
- The Power of our thoughts and intentions.
- The necessity of being human and authentic.
- Living in tune with the Universal Consciousness
- Understanding the mystery of life and death.
- Our threefold energy system.
- The advice of those who have travelled this road before us.
- The importance of keeping an open mind and of verifying knowledge.
- Unity in diversity - understanding that which connects us and why we struggle with diversity.
- The desire which propels us to want to know as we search for Truth.
What can I expect? There are two courses consisting of five weekly meetings during which core aspects of the Ageless Wisdom are presented and explored with the group through a dialogue and discussion process.
A new topic is brought up each week which builds on what has been discussed in the previous sessions. Discussion involves both relevant excerpts from a modern Theosophical perspective, sacred texts and modern science perspectives, as well as presenters' and students' own experiences of the topic. Students are requested to observe what goes on in and around them during the week in relation to the topic, and these observations form the basis for the following week's discussion.
The basis of the approach is active and participative enquiry, where students are asked to neither accept nor reject what is discussed, but to keep an open mind, actively seeking to discover for themselves whether what is proposed is true or false. In the weeks that follow, through observation and our own research, we can often experience the essence of what has been explored to gain a deeper perspective. In this way knowledge can be tested and if it is found to be useful it can be transmuted from mere information into experience.
The sessions run for approximately 90 minutes with a complimentary tea and coffee afterwards.
