TSA Summer National Convention; Education for a New Humanity Conference; 37th European Congress, Paris, France.

  UPCOMING RETREAT                        


Enjoy from the Comfort of Your Home

The 128th Annual National Convention, which theme was "Science and the Experience of Consciousness," drew over 150 members. As part of the program, world-famous author Eben Alexander gave a public talk at the College of DuPage in which over 400 people heard his fascinating story about his near-death experience and how it changed his worldview. All the programs were webcast live so that those who were not able to attend the convention could still watch the programs online.

A four-day educational conference called "Education for a New Humanity" was also held in July. Representatives from the Montessori, Waldorf, Krishnamurti, Theosophical, and Raja Yoga schools were invited to share their methods of teaching with an enthusiastic group of forty-five participants. The conference included lectures, slide shows, discussion groups, and a panel discussion.
