The Theosophical Society in the Ojai Valley

The Ojai Valley Lodge is a local branch of the Theosophical Society  in America. It holds weekly meetings on Tuesdays from 7 – 8 pm, in the School. Though its programs are open to everyone, some are planned especially for TS members. For a list of upcoming programs and information about membership in the Theosophical Society in America, contact presidentojaivalleyts@gmail.com.

Daily Morning Meditation

A guided group meditation is held TuesdayFriday, from 9 – 9:20 am, in Krotona Hall. The intention is to help us center ourselves in stillness and unity, so we may bring good will, peace and healing to all in need. All are welcome.

The Hall is adjacent to Krotona Library, and both doors to the foyer are open during the meditation.

Theosophical Healing Network

The Krotona circle of the Theosophical Healing Network, a branch of the Theosophical Order of Service, meets every Monday evening at 7 pm in the home of Gracia Fay and Robert Ellwood, 14 Krotona Hill. The simple ceremony and group meditation takes about 15 minutes. We read names both of humans and of companion animals in need of healing. Anyone, whether Theosophist or not, is welcome to attend, to submit names, and to be listed. Names are ordinarily kept on the list for a month, unless renewed. Names for this list may be sent to robertsellwood@gmail.com; both first and last names are preferred.

We welcome participation in this inner work.

Secret Doctrine Study Group

The Secret Doctrine was H. P. Blavatsky’s magnum opus and became a foundational contribution to modern esoteric philosophy. The core of this work is the “Stanzas of Dzyan,” a collection of secret aphorisms that describe the development of the universe and humanity from an esoteric point of view. A monthly group to study this work meets every 4th Sunday from 3 to 5 pm.  For more information call 1-858-353-0470 or 1-805-798-7748.
