  NEWS FROM THE NATIONAL LODGE       
  
The National Lodge Presents: "Theosophy in Literature"

 

Consider joining the National Lodge to supplement your Theosophical studies with our fascinating courses. Membership in the National Lodge is open to all members of the Theosophical Society. Since 1996, the NL has continued to provide quality courses on a wide variety of theosophical topics. Monthly study papers are distributed the first week of the month by email or postal mail, depending on your preference.

 

In September 2013, we begin a new course of study: "Theosophy in Literature." This 12-month course features articles showing how the ideas of the perennial philosophy have worked their way into the writings of Emerson, Tennyson, Whitman, Wordsworth, and many others.

 

National Lodge dues are $15 for postal delivery or $10 for e-mail delivery. First-time members of the Theosophical Society will receive one year's FREE email membership upon request. To join, please contact David Bruce: natsec@theosophical.org or 1-800-669-1571, ext. 301.
