Faivre and Theosophy.Net FAQ

This group exists for us to work on our understanding of the ideas around Esotericism and Theosophy and to nurture ideas to act on our understanding of the framework these provide.


Theosophy: "Intuitional knowledge or wisdom resulting from progress in Self-awareness and/or experience of one's own Transcendental ('Divine') Nature."

Theosophist: "An individual who is at least willing to consider potential knowledge and/or wisdom purporting to have been derived in this special epistemological way."

B) To help encourage exploration of the ways that we can apply these ideas, not only to this site but also to life in general.

C) To come up with projects and activities based on our understanding of these concepts.
