Spiritual Service and Devic Cooperation
Service to others is one of the three pillars of theosophical spiritual practice. After a short presentation about the Theosophical Order of Service, retired Professor Elwin Barrett will present, "A Deva Cooperative Group: Sharing the Experience of a Three Year Spiritual Project with Individuals from All Walks of Life." After we learn the basics of what's involved in a spiritual project, we'll brainstorm about starting our own spiritual project.

Treasures of the Tao Te Ching
Justin Tomasino and Mo Michel will lead us deep into the Tao Te Ching, said to be the most important classic of philosophical Taoism. Justin and Mo have selected 10 of their favorite jewels of the Tao Te Ching which address: the Nature of the Tao, the Nature of the Master, and the Taoist Way of Life. We'll explore the teachings together via meditation and discussion.

Peak Experiences and Cosmic Consciousness
Joyce Barrett helps us take a closer look at instances and elements of peak spiritual experiences and the manner in which these are perceived from the stand- point of mind/body/evolution. Joyce will explore the theosophical perspective from various theosophical writings to enrich our conceptual framework and enable us to identify the influence of our Higher Selves in our lives.

Coming to Know the Life Side of Nature
For our meeting this month, let's go outside and play! We'll gather early (to avoid parking problems and overcrowding) just inside the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York Street, Denver, CO 80206. We often appreciate the "form" side of nature--the beautiful colors, sights, sounds and fragrances. But how often do we pay attention to the "life" side of nature and really tune into the life force behind and within the outer manifestation? We'll spend about an hour on an exercise designed to deepen our awareness of, and communication with, the inner side of nature . . . all while continuing to appreciate nature's outward beauty. For a grand finale, we'll have a picnic together on the deck near the Hive Bistro (by Monet Pond) and share our experiences.
