July 5-7, 2019 Friday evening through Sunday lunch

The Quest for Self-Knowledge

Many spiritual traditions point out that the root of suffering and conflict lies in our ignorance of who we really are. Before we can realize our essential natures, however, it is necessary to peel back layers of false conceptions and mistaken identities. Helped by the peace and beauty of this Theosophical Center participants will have the opportunity to explore the foundations for this knowledge and engage in a series of exercises to help us look deep within.

Pablo Sender, PhD, joined the Theosophical Society (TS) in 1996 in his native Argentina. He has lived and worked at the international headquarters of the TS in Adyar, India, and at the national center of the TS in America. He is currently at the Krotona Institute of Theosophy in Ojai, California, where he works in Theosophical education. An international speaker, he has presented programs and retreats in India, Europe, Oceania, and the three Americas. He has written books in Spanish and English. His latest book is Evolution of the Higher Consciousness, on which this program is based.

Program fee: $100 and is a non-refundable deposit, to be paid in full at time of registration.

The Other Side of Karma: How Nature Spirits and Devas (Angels) Affect Our Lives, featuring Kurt Leland, NE Theosophical Federation

Program Image: 
May 24-26, 2019 Friday dinner through Sunday lunch

The Other Side of Karma: How Nature Spirits and Devas (Angels) Affect Our Lives

Many clairvoyant accounts of the nonphysical, nonhuman beings we call nature spirits or fairies and devas or angels emphasize their cuteness, beauty, majesty, and mystery. But they may also have a darker—or at least inconvenient—side, involving such things as disappearing keys, unexpected delays, freak accidents, and even natural disasters. As such, they are the agents of the positive and negative karma we generate for ourselves in the past of this lifetime and in previous lives. From the lowly elementals we create with our thoughts and feelings to the awe-inspiring Lords of Karma, we are constantly interacting with and being affected by nature spirits and devas. Join theosophical clairvoyant Kurt Leland in this weekend exploration of how to live and work with such beings in mutually beneficial ways. Though we may not be able to evade the karmic processes we have set in motion, we can learn to transform them for the greater good of all.

Kurt Leland is a National Lecturer for the Theosophical Society in America. He is also an award-winning composer and the author of eight books dealing with subjects such as astral projection, near-death experiences, and mystical experiences associated with music. His latest book is Rainbow Body: A History of the Western Chakra System from Blavatsky to Brennan (2016). An internationally known expert on the life and writings of theosophical leaders and clairvoyants Annie Besant and Charles W. Leadbeater, Mr. Leland has also compiled and annotated Invisible Worlds: Annie Besant on Psychic and Spiritual Development (2013) and an authoritative edition of Leadbeater's classic, The Chakras (2013).

Program Fee: $100 and is a non-refundable deposit.

The Northeast Federation (TSA) through the generosity of the Sellon Trust and our members will help with the cost of the room and board. Members of TSA in good standing as of 1/1/17 are eligible for this scholarship.
