Find a Local Group

The Theosophical Society in America is part of the international Theosophical Society. The American Section is organized into three geographical districts (eastern, central, and western). In each district there are two kinds of local groups, called Lodges (or Branches) and Study Centers. In some parts of the country, local groups and individual members join together in a voluntary association called a Federation. Use the map below to find meeting places near you.

 Lodges and Study Centers
Our local groups are broken down into lodges and study centers. Lodges are formally organized groups consisting of at least seven members of the Society who meet regularly to study Theosophy and to present Theosophical programs for the public. Study Centers are less formal groups consisting of at least three members of the Society who also meet regularly to study Theosophy and who may offer occasional public programs. For information on how to facilitate your group, contact the national secretary.

All lodges and study centers are also grouped into larger districts to help organize and connect local members. Each district is directed by two board members.
