Essentials of Spiritual Practice
Theosophical Applications to Daily Life
Tuesdays, 7-8:30 PM October 11-November 29 (8 sessions)
Today many people are experiencing a growing awareness about the difficulty of connecting their day-to-day living with their deepest spiritual needs. Even those who do have a regular spiritual practice often find that it is not balanced or complete. The teachings of Theosophy offer a wealth of approaches to the practice of spirituality in today's world. This class will focus on service, meditation, and study as practical applications of spiritual principles to promote a balanced unfoldment of our emotional, mental, and spiritual lives.
This course is facilitated by a team of Theosophical Society staff including Tim Boyd, Jim Bosco, Pablo Sender, Juliana Cesano, Ben Furman, and John Cianciosi.
$80 guests ~ $65 members ~ $12 per class
Enrollment for the full course is encouraged!

OLCOTT'S MOTHER MARY SHRINE
For the last twenty years there has been a largely unnoticed shrine to Mother Mary about 50 yards beyond the west parking lot. It is situated in a dense grove of trees which with time has become overgrown with buckthorn and wild grape vines. Over the years a few devotees have regularly visited the shrine leaving flowers, prayer requests, and various offerings. Many of them have felt a strong presence of peace and blessing at the spot. During the years Mary has been there some things have changed. The ground had settled and she and her little shrine building were starting to lean to the right, and the undergrowth was closing in.
