Our world is facing a variety of challenges that include a pandemic, climate change, wars, and social and political unrest. How can the Theosophical Society and its members help in these difficult times? HP Blavatsky stated that “the kingdom of peace and love, of mutual help and charity and food for all” cannot be conquered by violence or by “cold, reasoning, diplomatic policy.” These problems can only be solved by bringing about a change in the hearts and minds of people. In this interactive seminar, the mentors of the Partners in Theosophy Program will guide an exploration into the nature of the change needed today and the role of the Theosophical Society as a vehicle of transformation of human consciousness.

Open only to Theosophical Society members. Full series only, no single sessions.

Pre-registration is required. No tuition fee. Donations are welcome.
