Workshops I

1 Workshop at Blavatsky Bungalow upstairs y Sonal Murali
"Theosophical Education –The Inner Flowering"

Theosophical education explores how to nurture the inner being and how to awaken the spark within.

A child is young only in body but may be wiser than adults around him/her, a being who is to be understood before being helped. Each child is an individual with his/her unique abilities in extraordinary ways and has come into this world to express that being in the best possible manner. We are unaware of the spiritual germ, the creative nebulae, within the child.

The theosophical approach to education is to see that the uniqueness of each child is celebrated, drawn out and given wings to express freely in myriad ways. In this session we will explore how theosophical education views the child and what inner flowering means.

2 Workshop at Headquarters Hall by Jaishree Kannan

Delegates are requested to attend both the sessions. The leader recommends the ancient Vedic way of learning chanting which is by complete listening. Hence there would not be any written material required nor does it require any stationery (paper, pen, pencil etc.) Let there be peace by chanting the Shanti Mantra.

3 Workshop at Blavatsky Bungalow Hall led by World Federation of Young Theosophists
"An Exploration of the Seven Rays"

Esoteric Philosophy tells us that the universe is composed of seven distinct energies called in the Theosophical teachings as the seven rays. These rays serve as the building blocks of the universe in any particular place or time.

In a similar manner human beings are also composed of these same seven rays. In esoteric psychology, each body or vehicle may be composed of a particular ray. As human beings, we are all composed of all seven rays but there will be one or two which will be most predominant.

By knowing which rays are most predominant we are able to know more about ourselves and our spiritual path. This workshop aims to explore this concept of the seven rays as it applies to our personalities. Helping us to know more about ourselves through our dominant rays.
