Speaker: Peter Urban

17 October Talk: “Development of Cosmic Consciousness”
Every sensation is an elemental change in the state of the psyche. The education of the elements in affinity with cosmic consciousness, and the elimination of the elements contrary to cosmic consciousness, quicken our awakening.
Speaker: Adam Mistry

24 October Talk: “The Divine Pymander”
‘The Divine Pymander’ is a spiritual document of great significance and antiquity, much referred to by H.P. Blavatsky. This talk will explore and discuss some of the more important and theosophically-interesting aspects of this fascinating document.

NOVEMBER

7 November Discussion Night: “How Your Positive or Negative Thoughts Enhance or Sabotage Your Spiritual Growth”
This discussion will centre around the impact that your thoughts have on your spiritual journey and on the purification process, how you identify positive and negative thoughts, the mechanism of how negative thoughts block soul contact and the spiritual results on the path of doing this work.
Facilitator: Tony Petcopoulos

14 November Talk: “Elements of Death in the context     of Life’
This presentation will explore the five Tibetan Buddhist Bardos of Dying and Rebirth, and the illusion that engulfs the life of every incarnating personality, through Hindu and Tibetan Wisdom Eyes and the philosophical Heart Beat that exists beyond the world of illusion.
Speakers: Anna and Paul Robb

21 November Talk: “The Self and its ‘Bodies’”
Theosophy suggests that the human being is essentially a Self - unconditioned consciousness - that uses several vehicles (‘bodies’) for its expression on the physical, emotional and mental planes of existence. This presentation will enquire into how the different ‘bodies’ can be so aligned that we may enter into the full knowledge of who we really are.
Speaker: Pedro Oliveira, Education Coordinator of TSA
