core principles and their practical application

Session 1 The Yoga of Theosophy

Theosophy is a comprehensive Wisdom-Teaching that includes an exploration of the laws and processes taking place in the universe and in us, but it is also a Wisdom that can be approached by individual experience. In the presentation we will consider the three steps in the Yoga of Theosophy: Listening, Reflecting and Meditating. The core principles of Theosophy.

Session 2 Short Trips to Hell: Understanding Negative Emotion

We all know how unsettling and painful it is to be under the sway of negative emotions. They can destroy relationships and create havoc in society. This presentation will explore the nature of negative emotions such as fear, anger, jealousy etc., and point to the steadiness of mind which negativity of any sort cannot touch. The practical application of those principles in understanding our troubled emotions.
