Astral Light with Susanne Hoepfl-Wellenhofer

Via Zoom - to receive an invitation, join our email list (you can unsubscribe at any time).

Astral Light is a term used by the French occultist Eliphas Levi to refer to the medium of all light, energy, and movement. In his view the astral light was a fluidic life force that fills all space and living beings. Helena Blavatsky adopted the term and used it in her writings and is an important principle in Theosophical teachings. The Astral Realm is a non-physical dimension of existence; this sphere is made of astral matter, a subtle form of matter which is said to be translucent and radiant. Join us for a presentation about this important principle in Theosophical teachings.

Susanne Hoepfl-Wellenhofer was born in Austria and has been living and working in the U.S. since 1986.  She is currently the president of the Washington DC Lodge, contributes to the Online School of Theosophy and the Theosophical Wiki on a regular basis, and mentors prisoners studying theosophy while incarcerated.  She has a law degree from Austria and an M.A. in Educational Technology and Leadership. She retired from the George Washington University in D.C. in 2019 after 20 years as a lecturer.

Mysteries of the Enneagram with Richard Smoley
Via Zoom - to receive an invitation, join our email list (you can unsubscribe at any time).

The cryptic glyph called the enneagram has evoked much interest lately. It has been called a key to all knowledge, a map of the processes underlying reality, even a guide to a person’s inner character. Introduced to the West by G.I. Gurdjieff, it has since found many explicators and has been the subject of several best sellers.
Richard Smoley will describe the history and dynamics of the enneagram, its origins, and its uses. He will sort fact from fiction and put the enneagram in its proper context, past and present.

​Richard Smoley is editor of Quest: Journal of the Theosophical Society in America. He is also the author of thirteen books on spirituality, philosophy, and religion. His latest book, Seven Games of Life, was published in May 2023.  Formerly editor of Gnosis: A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions, Richard lectures nationwide for the Theosophical Society and other organizations and has been featured on numerous YouTube videos.

The Wizard of Oz: The Perilous Journey, study session facilitated by Kathy Gann

Via Zoom - to receive an invitation, join our email list (you can unsubscribe at any time).

Join us for a deep dive into this modern-day fairy tale by theosophist L. Frank Baum.  When asked how he happened to write the story, Baum said, "It was pure inspiration.... It came to me right out of the blue. I think that sometimes the Great Author has a message to get across and He has to use the instrument at hand. I happened to be that medium, and I believe the magic key was given me to open the doors to sympathy and understanding, joy, peace and happiness."   We'll study an article authored by John Algeo, former President of the Theosophical Society in America.

Theosophy sets forth three aspects of our personality that must be developed to respond to the perils of life: 1) dauntless courage (sought by the Lion); spotless purity (sought by the Tin Man as he was constantly polished to clean away the rust); and strong intellect (sought by the Scarecrow).  As the article says, "Dorothy's companions, like Dorothy herself, have within themselves the qualities they are seeking. We each have everything we need; we lack only the intuition of Glinda the Good to tell us so."
