HENRY S. OLCOTT MEMORIAL LIBRARY
Seeing for yourself is just what Fernando de Torrijos recommends in his "How I Became a Theosophist" interview this month! Fernando worked with contemporary Mindfulness pioneer Jon-Kabit Zinn for many many years. In his interview, Fernando relates not only his own synchronistic Theosophical journey, but explains how his present mission to spread Mindfulness Meditation has essentially become his Theosophical path.

In this month's Featured Favorites we favor the less then five minute video "Tour the Henry S. Olcott Memorial Library Website." There are many resources freely available on the library website-many more than you think. Watch this brief video tour of the Henry S. Olcott Memorial Library Website and see for yourself.

"Yield and overcome;
Bend and be straight;
Empty and be full;
Wear out and be new;
Have little and gain;
Have much and be confused...
Be really whole,
And all things will come to you."
