School of the Wisdom
Event Person: 

The Theosophical tradition has developed a wealth of teachings about the spiritual life that constitutes a distinctive system of yoga. This path is particularly relevant for today's world, since it is not meant to be tread in retirement but in the midst of our daily life. Some of its prominent practices are study, meditation, purification, self-observation, and service, all of which stimulates a holistic unfoldment of our physical, moral, mental and spiritual nature. In this session of the School of the Wisdom we will explore the practical aspects of Theosophy and their deep theoretical foundations.

The School of the Wisdom aims at bringing each student to survey life ‘from the centre’, which is intuitive awareness. An intense sense of Life must always accompany every true student. There can be no Wisdom without an ever increasing sense of Wonder.

Essential in the progress towards Wisdom is a growing intimacy with all aspects of Nature. The message which each tree, flower, animal, meadow, sea, sky, and cloud has, must be listened to and understood.
