The Dharma Karma Nexus
February 22, 7 p.m.
with Minor Lile

Theosophical teachings provide a wealth of information about the workings of karma in our lives. Often less emphasized, but just as relevant, is the role dharma plays in shaping our plans and perceptions. These two elements of natural law are inextricably woven into the pattern of our lives, both collectively and as individuals.

The Metaphysics of Light
March 1, 7 p.m.
with Richard Smoley

Light is probably the most universal symbol for spiritual awakening. So what is it about light that's so important? Is it light in the physical sense, or another kind entirely? Join Richard Smoley in an exploration about why light is such a powerful and widely used image, and how spiritual light may relate to physical light.

Rumi's Poetic Theology of Love
March 8, 7 p.m.
with Franklin Lewis, PhD

Rumi used his poetry to describe the relationship between the worshiper and the divine beloved. In these poems, the worshiper succumbs to the suprarational experience of love, usually as romantic love (eros), but also as unconditional, self-sacrificing love (agape). Explore Rumi's theology of love not only as a feeling, but an attitude that defines the very essence of righteousness and true religion.
