Guidance-for-Skype-phone-users (March 2017)
The study group is a friendly company of students who wish to learn, apply and put into use the perennial Wisdom as it was originally given. The approach to the texts is an enquiring and respectful one that helps open them up to a shared understanding and a truer assessment of their meaning.
7 pm meeting
A study of Patanjali’s Yoga Aphorisms (the Yoga Sutras), the original and best guide to the principles and practice of the art of meditation. The remainder of the meeting is on The Secret Doctrine, H.P. Blavatsky’s great work that illuminates in detail the scope and structure of Theosophical philosophy.
8:30 pm meeting
Reading and discussion of Forum Answers from William Q Judge, taken with references from Isis Unveiled by H. P. Blavatsky. The answers give valuable and practical insights and understanding into the process of evolution in humanity and nature.
Both Wednesday meetings run from October until June.
