 Reel-Time Theosophy

 Last Sunday of the Month
 Beginning July 31
, 7 PM (Central) 

 With Steve Schweizer  

This monthly Webinar will look at some of the educational programs produced at the Theosophical Society in America. Steve Schweizer, a writer and producer for the Society since 1984, will introduce each program, revealing something of the story behind the production of each title. Following an online showing of the program, there will be time for open discussion among Webinar participants, exploring ways in which each title could be used as part Theosophical programming both at local TS meetings and as a part of online study.

The teachings of modern Theosophy cover a wide range of subjects, ranging from the manifestation of the universe and the development of life on our planet, to the ultimate aim of human life and the way to fulfill this purpose.


In this new section called Teachings we are providing some of the material we offer under online resources , but classified by subjects, to assist you in your exploration of Theosophy. Enjoy!

"Peace is not just the mere absence of violence or disturbance.
It's when there is a possibility of conflict, but you deliberately
avoid violence and adopt methods to solve the problem
through peaceful means. That is real peace.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
