On Friday, March 13th, we are delighted to welcome Tim Boyd, who is both International President of the Theosophical Society and President of the Theosophical Society in America. A long-time student of the Ancient Wisdom, Tim lectures internationally, conducting workshops on Theosophy and spirituality.
At 8 p.m., Tim will speak on Our Present Need.
“For the past few hundred years a cycle of human activity has been building. The dominance of a new way of seeing and experiencing the world has been the driving force leading to this time. In the words of Mircea Eliade, “The completely profane world, the wholly desacralized cosmos, is a recent discovery in the history of human spirit.” This approach to living in the world has produced a cascading series of problems including degradation of the environment, global violence, and personal unease. What can we do? How do we respond to the present need?”
The Lodge will open at 6:00 p.m., and prior to Tim’s formal talk at 8:00, there will be an opportunity to chat informally and respond to any questions that might spontaneously arise.
This event is, of course, free.
NOTE: Tim Boyd will also speak for the Theosophical Society in Oakland on Saturday, March 14h, at 2:00 p.m., at the Oakland Public Library, Rockbridge Branch, 5366 College Avenue (Near Broadway in Oakland, four blocks from the Rockridge BART Station).
