Unique Opportunity in the 10th TS World Congress - A view

Unique Opportunity in the 10th World Congress - A view



In ten days, the 10th World Congress is scheduled at Rome. Many leaders

from the West will be attending it. In the aftermath of the

International Election and the follow-up cleavage displayed by the

theosophical leaders, the future growth of TS in the West is going to

depend on the level of reconciliation that takes place among the

leaders.… Continue

Science Historian Deciphers Plato's Code

Science Historian Deciphers Plato's Code

I thought I’d share the main issues. I am glad to see that the tabu on discussing these things is leading to important insights coming out – it’s the only way we can reframe the theosophical work in a way that’s relevant for humanity today.
