Theosophy in 21st Century

Study Course on Theosophy in 21st Century

Many people are wondering the meaning of Life and the Universe. Theosophy is the essential knowledge about Life that has been expressed by remarkable people in different times and cultures. Helena Blavatsky rediscovered this perennial tradition for the general culture at the end of the 19th century and since then many thinkers have discovered it, have made their own contributions and modern science corroborates and expands this vision.

This course of 12 sessions is aimed at those who want to systematically enter into the study and research of Theosophy, seeing its sources, its reflection in modern knowledge, discrepancies with common ideas, and especially the potential of Theosophy to transform our practical life and improve the world.
