Union with Nature
Saturday, June 20, 2009



At the recent invitational at Krotona, a gathering of dedicated members both old and new suggested that now may be the time to offer an occasion where members with specialized areas of expertise to have the opportunity to meet with each other in order to connect on a professional as well as spiritual level.
This is not the first time such an event has been proposed or implemented. During John Algeo's administration, the Society hosted an invitational for in-depth exploration of Christianity and Theosophy. That gathering resulted in an enriching body of material on the subject as well as closer connections among those who participated. With networking being the wave of the future, this type of event may stimulate the creation of several new threads of connections for members. This unique opportunity will be made available for Theosophical workers instead of the Olcott Experience usually occurring at this time of year.

Members of the Theosophical Society may apply to participate in the Focus Group Invitational to be held October 15-18 on the Olcott campus. Participants will be divided into three groups, each discussing one of the following topics:

Visual Arts as an Expression of Theosophy
Theosophical Implications in Science
Applied Theosophy in Family Relations

In your participation request, please include the following: your reasons for wanting to participate, preferred topic, related skill sets, and Theosophical background. E-mail requests to David Bruce at or send your written request to TSA Department of Education, PO Box 270, Wheaton, IL, 60187-0270.
