An interactive evening discussion, with a few surprises. Every week, at our public evenings, we read an extract from The Freedom of Thought, a general Resolution by The Theosophical Society made in 1924. How many of us genuinely honour this? What are the Golden Stairs that Helena P Blavatsky says the learner climbs to The ‘Temple of Wisdom and what relevance do they have to Freedom of Thought, and the way we live our lives.

Friday August 23rd
7pm "Your Path and Messages from the Ox-Herding Pictures - Olga Monagan                                                                                    
At some point in our lives, we begin to become aware of a deeper level within us which we may not have noticed previously. Know thyself/self-discovery plays an important role in many traditions. Understanding the process of our own personal growth and awakening, clarifies and enables us to see what is in front of us, our way ahead, and, in so doing, make better choices for ourselves and for the world. Come and explore these fascinating images, the Ox-Herding Pictures, reflect on them and welcome what they bring to you   

Friday August 30th
