Beyond Our Truth: Reality is an Illusion, and the Truth is Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
Every person in this world, no matter what his/her role in life, is a searcher for truth. Scholars delve into the past; scientists seek to explain the universe, the atom, the butterfly; neighbors converse over the back fence. Each of us in every daily situation endeavors to see things as they truly are. Why this insistent urge for the true? It seems to be an integral part of us, a nostalgia in the soul, a longing for a more real comprehension, a hunger that nothing less than what is true will satisfy. What does this imply? We will explore this topic using short multimedia clips with follow up discussion in small groups.

Theosophy's Magnum Opus: the Ethics that Flow Out of Theosophy's Most Compelling Teaching
What IS theosophy's number one, most compelling teaching? And what are its implications for our lives, especially concerning our ethics and how we relate to our environment, animals and people?

What is the purpose of Life? What happens when we die? Do we come back? Theosophical teachings postulate that the Human Soul is a pilgrim in a plan of Spiritual Evolution. This journey is accomplished through a cycle of Reincarnation, and regulated universal laws such as that of Karma, Dharma, the Law of Periodicity, etc. We will explore these concepts in group discussions and interactive scenarios.

Join us for our annual holiday party and program. We'll enjoy a holiday potluck--feel free to bring a vegetarian or vegan dish to share--followed by a program that highlights the energy of the season. This year's program, "Christmas with the Angels" celebrates with an active invocation of cooperation between humanity and seven intelligent agencies of nature.
Holiday Service Program: To participate, just bring an item from either of the following organizations' wish lists: Lakota Waldorf School on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota; or Cat Care Society, a no-kill shelter in Lakewood, Colorado, for cats and kittens.

It's a New Year: the Power of Thoughts
How can we help create a better world in our new year? Join us in a lively and active program based on this premise: Thoughts have power—real objective power. Through the power of thought we affect not only ourselves but also others around us. We are continually coloring the surrounding mental atmosphere, for we live not only in a physical environment but in an emotional and mental one as well. Just as the air that we breathe is part of our physical surroundings, so our thoughts and feelings become part of the emotional and mental environment in which we live.
NOTE: we are still accepting holiday service gifts for the Lakota Waldorf School or the Cat Care Society (see above for explanation); you may bring a gift to January's meeting if you wish to participate.

The Art of Living
Can our everyday lives be lived in such a way that they could be considered an art form? What kind of mindset would that require; what kind of choices would we need to make? Join us as we use multimedia sources and experiential activities to consider:
1) The Art of Living with Gratitude; and
2) The Art of Living with Animals.
After a presentation, we'll consider and discuss the high ideal suggested by our topic title: that there is a way of being in the world that is so exquisite it could rightly be called "The Art of Living." Our evening together will end with a group meditation.

We enjoy the beauty of nature every day, but how often do we attune to the life expressing through the beautiful forms? We'll engage in games and exercises designed to attune us to the inner side of nature. If you like, bring a picnic lunch to be enjoyed together afterward.
