Sun 7th A Turkish Effendi on Christendom and Islam (published by H. P. Blavatsky) – 7 to 8.30 pm (text here)

Sun 14th Jesus and The Brotherhood of the Essenes – 7 to 8.30 pm

Wed 17th Artificial Intelligence: A Theosophical Approach – 7 to 9 pm
 
Exploring the concept of A.I.: should we be afraid of it or embrace it? Is it linked to the idea of “collective intelligence”? We’ll find out how Theosophy sheds light on this very contemporary topic. (AI a Theosophical Approach handout)
 
Sun 21st Dialogue on The Mysteries of The Afterlife (from “The Key to Theosophy” by HPB) – 7 to 8.30 pm 
 
If we clearly understand what Theosophy means by the Ego we’ll be better able to comprehend what is said about the after-death states of consciousness and the sevenfold constitution of the human being. Click here for the study text, p. 156-171.
 
Sun 28th Knowledge – Absolute and Relative (article by B. P. Wadia) – 7 to 8.30 pm
 
Is there only relative knowledge . . . or can there truly be such a thing as absolute knowledge? Our ideas about this philosophical question have profound and practical implications. Click here for the study text, p. 17-23 in physical book, p. 14-19 in PDF.

Theosophy and the ULT

The Lodge programme takes up the writings of two of the original and most active founders of the Theosophical Society, H. P. Blavatsky and William Q Judge, along with those of Robert Crosbie, the founder of the ULT.

The influence of the Theosophical movement has popularised the Eastern ideas of karma and reincarnation and introduced to the West practices such as meditation and the – then-radical – concepts of non-violent resistance and the inter-connectedness of all life. Its scholarly and fact-based philosophy has given rise to the study of reincarnation research and man’s consciousness, both being important subjects in their own right as some of the keys to man’s well-being and his balanced psychological development.

Such developments as these have become clearly better understood and accepted over the past 100 years and are entering the mainstream due to the spread of theosophical ideas… including its New Age spin offs, cranky as some are.

Robert Crosbie was a pupil of the two founders and started the ULT in 1909 because he wished to see their work continued along the same lines and with their ideals. The programme of the ULT remains loyal to these original pioneers, whose writings remain far above that of later authors and who are the most reliable and trusted sources of the Perennial Wisdom of theosophy.

To find out more about this sustainable, rational and life-enhancing system of thought, get in touch or come to the meetings.
