Tom Boyd, the National President of Theosophical Society in USA talked at HPB Lodge on 12 January 2012 on Elements of Spiritual Practice. A balanced approach to the spiritual life involves a process of constant refinement. The freedom of an effortless awareness seems to require an evolving discipline, in the beginning, middle and end. We will examine the theoretical underpinnings of a spiritual practice and its practical elements. Our goal is to develop an effective, ongoing practice that can be an aid to us in all of the situations we face in life. Below are some clips from Tim's talk.
