  FEATURED PROGRAMS                   


  THEOSOPHICAL WEB SEARCH                 

The Wheaton-Olcott Lodge has produced a computer program called Theosophical Web Search (TWS) that runs on Microsoft Windows. TWS is a handy program that uses Google to search selected Theosophical web sites and books. This beta software:  

  • Assists you in searching the content of specific theosophical websites.
  • Maintains a history of the words or phrases used in the last 25 searches so that they do not need to be retyped if a previous search needs to be repeated.
  • Allows you to create a list of bookmarks so that important or frequently visited web pages can be recalled without searching. Bookmarks are also useful in keeping track of interesting webpages that may you find along the way but want to read later.
  • Assists you in creating internet references and bibliographies by allowing you to quickly copy the URL of the current web page to the Windows clipboard with the click of a button.
  • Defaults to a fixed set of theosophical web sites, an empty set of bookmarks and an empty search history. This can be personalized, since the entries in the TWS site list can be edited, added or removed as necessary.

Indralaya, the Theosophical center on Orcas Island in Washington State, is now offering a ten week gap year program for young people between the ages of 18 and 26. The program will be offered twice in 2014, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.

In addition to participating in the regular programs and activities of Indralaya, participants will be provided with a course of study incorporating theosophical concepts, have the opportunity to experience various contemplative practices, develop practical life skills, and engage with the natural world at a deep level. They will also have the opportunity for small group meetings with program leaders and the wide array of interesting people doing meaningful work in the world who regularly pass through Indralaya.
