The word Theosophy has been used for many centuries, it is of Greek origin meaning Wisdom of the Gods (theo - of Gods, sophia – wisdom). Wisdom cannot be enclosed within words, it is a Truth which must be discovered and experienced by each one for themselves. Theosophy, sometimes known as the Ageless Wisdom, is the Light which shines through the many coloured lamps of religion. It is the thread of truth in scriptures, creeds, symbols, myths and rituals. Divine Wisdom is One, the paths towards it are many.
The Theosophical Society in England is a part of the world-wide theosophical movement with its centre in Adyar, India. The Society is dedicated to the comparative study of religion, science and philosophy and the practice of the Art of Self-Realisation. The Society is composed of members of different religious backgrounds who are united in a belief that mankind is a spiritual family and that humanity can have a glorious future through a compassionate and intelligent way of living.

Exciting New Developments at Theosophical Society Headquarters in London
50 Gloucester Place, London W1U 8EA
We are pleased to announce to Members and Friends of The Theosophical Society that we are planning to revitalise the work of the English Section of the TS in London.
London HQ has a new management group which will assist the TS in London in its task of promoting the work and teachings of Theosophy. A number of new initiatives are in preparation to achieve this. Further details will be posted on our dedicated website, The London Theosophical Post (london-theosophical-post.blogspot.co.uk) as the work progresses.
For now, Sunday workshops & public lectures will be suspended over the Autumn 2015 term so that we may redirect our resources to the new programme of activities due to begin in 2016, and also carry out essential maintenance work on our headquarters building.
Details of Study Groups & Lodge meetings to be held over autumn will appear on The London Theosophical Post as soon as this information is available.
We would like to thank all participants at our London events for their past support, and cordially invite all those interested in pursuing the study of Theosophy to join us in the future for the continuation of our work.
Headquarters Closing Dates Over Summer
