far horizoionsSince 1954, Far Horizons has provided a summer experience in Theosophical living. It is a center for spiritual education, and a place of calm, located at 7,200 feet in the High Sierra forest. Members and nonmembers alike find peace in this special place.

Our programs run from Wednesday evening to Sunday afternoon for a couple of hours, morning and evening. Delightful vegetarian meals are served under the trees, and the lazy afternoons can be spent integrating the program material, relaxing, or simply exploring nearby natural beauty. Select from camping, simple room with bath house, small apartments, or private cabins for your stay. We invite you to visit Far Horizons this summer to participate in an exploration of spiritual healing for yourself and others.

2017 Summer Programs


 

Far Horizons Vounteer

 


If you have been to Far Horizons in years past, you realize that volunteers run the camp as well as show up to support it.  What you may not know is that although we successfully completed the season of 2008, the volunteer staff continues to feel pressure because, to keep up the standard, we needed more help.  For the coming year, generating a strong staff of volunteers is a top priority.  To do so, we are reaching out to you, people who have experienced (and benefited from)  the unique offerings of Far Horizons.
If you (or any friends you can think of that would be a good fit for Far Horizons) have interest in being a part of the Far Horizons staff this summer, consider applying!
When you volunteer you get to live:

  • With 3 delicious, organic vegetarian meals a day.
  • In the absence of electricity – a subtle, but noticeable change that gives your body a break.
  • In the spirit of service, sharing your gifts with others
  • Surrounded by forest and wilderness, with many hiking, exploring and meditative opportunities.
  • In community, coming together daily with others that share common goals.
  • With the option to attend any of the personal growth workshops that take place every week.

All of this in trade for a contribution of work to keep the place running.
Listed above are just a few of the reasons why spending a summer of service at Far Horizons is so enriching, and there are many more to be discovered in the experience. 2009 is a good time to explore what else you will find during a summer at Far Horizons that you won’t forget.

A big thank you and a bear hug to all the volunteers that have helped in the past and to all of those yet to come.  See you beneath the trees!

Krotona

Krotona School of Theosophy


Since its founding in 1967, the Krotona School of Theosophy has been helping students deepen their understanding of theosophy, the ancient wisdom, in its many forms, and has encouraged them to live a spiritually oriented life. The school emphasizes "transformative education" which focuses on spiritual renewal. Such studies lead students to orient themselves to eternal truths in a changing world.

The school, an integral part of the Krotona Institute, supports the work of The Theosophical Society and its three objects, which are concerned with: 1) The unity of all people; 2) The study of comparative religion, philosophy and science; and 3) The investigation of unexplained laws of nature and our latent powers. School programs reflect the peace and special presence that make Krotona the spiritual center it is.

WE ARE GRATEFUL

Herbert A Kern, a theosophist and industrialist, generously supported the Krotona Institute of Theosophy from 1958 to 1962. Since 1966 the Kern Foundation, with Herbert's son, John, and grand-daughter, Louise, as advising trustees, has supported the School with generous grants, enabling it to operate at its present level, bringing faculty to Krotona and offering scholarships. We are grateful for Herbert Kern's vision and for John's and Louise's dedication to supporting the School over the years.

Emily B Sellon, who shared her vast knowledge of theosophy with her students, and John A Sellon, an investor, were visionaries who devoted their lives to theosophy.

Cynthia Overweg, Weekend Retreat
The Power of Gratitude
November 5 – 6
Saturday 10 – 5 pm, Sunday 10 – noon

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is “thank-you,” it will be enough.
Meister Eckh

How different would our lives be if we experienced each day as a gift? What happens inside us when we look at the astonishing beauty of the natural world, and feel a rush of gratitude simply for being able to see its splendor? Gratitude is a potent energy that can transform our lives and make us whole. In our weekend together, we will discover how gratefulness invigorates our sense of joy and well-being. Through stillness, contemplation, active listening, and encounters with nature, we will cultivate the exquisite art of gratitude and the inner peace it brings.

A box vegetarian lunch is available on Saturday or participants may bring their own vegetarian lunch.
Retreat $40 + $12 for box lunch
Pre-registration is required

Weekend Seminar
The Great Tradition: The Esoteric Transmission Including Theosophy
January 20 – 22
Friday 7:30 – 9 pm, Saturday 10 – noon, 2 – 4 pm
Sunday 10 – noon

From very early times there existed an inner tradition of spirituality. Acting as a corrective and alternative to the folk religions of the mainstream, it was often compelled to secrecy. HP Blavatsky’s teachings, emerging in the late 19th century, were an open disclosure of this tradition. Dr Hoeller will recount the features of the esoteric stream of theory and practice throughout the ages and point to its possible future development.

Series $50, Single session $15

Pablo Sender with B Bland, D Bruce, Ellwoods,

One Week Members Intensive
Serving Humanity Through the Theosophical Society
January 27 – February 3
Friday 7:30 – 9 pm, Saturday 10 – noon, 2 – 4 pm
Sunday – Friday 10 – noon
with additional afternoon sessions

• Registration for this program is open only
to Theosophical Society members.

• The workshop is offered as a full series only, no single sessions.

• Pre-registration is required. Donations are welcome.

The founding of the Theosophical Society was inspired by the Masters of Wisdom—a group of liberated sages who remain with humanity in order to assist us in our evolutionary journey. The aim of the organization is deeply rooted in the ideal of working for the service of humanity and all sentient beings. What is the meaning of service, when approached from a spiritual point of view? How can we prepare ourselves to be true servers? What is the contribution of the Theosophical Society to reduce world suffering? And what are the most effective means to do so?

Pablo Sender, joined the Theosophical Society (TS) in 1996 in Argentina, where he obtained a doctorate in biological sciences. He lived and worked at the TS international headquarters in Adyar, Chennai, India, and later at the national center of the TS in America in Wheaton, IL. Pablo presents lectures, seminars and classes internationally as well as
on-line courses. www.pablosender.com.

Assistant Faculty Betty Bland, David Bruce, Robert and Gracia Fay Ellwood, Maria Parisen, Nelda Samarel, and Rozi Ulics. Complementing their professional careers and family life, all have a rich background of service through the TS in America, Theosophical Order of Service, Krotona Institute and other TS organizations including federations, camps and retreat centers. They participate in local lodges and study centers as well, contributing wherever the need is greatest. They will be introduced individually during the program.


Ravi Ravindra
Three Week Series
Science and the Sacred
February 14 – 17, 21 – 24, Tuesday – Friday 10 – noon February 28 – March 2, Tuesday – Thursday 10 – noon

Human beings have two great needs: knowledge and meaning. These correspond in general to the domains of scientific research and spiritual search. An awareness of mystery inspires both of these. Scientific mysteries can in principle be solved and the solutions can be publicly shared. Spiritual mysteries cannot be solved even in principle but they can be dissolved for those who have undergone a radical transformation so that their perceptions are from the eyes of the spirit rather than from the eyes of the flesh. The spiritual mind is scientific in spirit but it does not share the reductionist assumption of modern science that matter is the primary reality.

Series $138, Single session $15

Ravi Ravindra and Priscilla Murray
Weekend Workshop
Truth and Love: Healing the Soul and Healing the Planet
February 17 – 18
Friday 7:30 – 9 pm, Saturday 10 – noon, 2 – 4 pm

For the healing of our souls, and consequently for the healing of our planet, both the great needs of our soul—Truth and Love—need to be met. For several centuries now, the search for truth has been relegated to the domain of scientific knowledge, and love is addressed only in religious contexts. Of course, the search for Love can become merely a personal wish for my comfort and security, just as the search for Truth can become largely a technological manipulation of nature. Whenever truth and love are separated from each other, the result is either sentimentality or dry intellectualism in which power is divorced from compassion. We will explore how the seekers of wisdom are naturally concerned with an inner integration and wholeness; therefore with the coming together of Truth and Love. Love is required to know truth, and knowledge of truth is expressed in love.

Three sessions $45, Single Session $15

Pablo Sender
Spanish Weekend
J Krishnamurti sobre la Mente y la Atención
Marzo 24 – 26
Viernes 7:30 – 9 pm, Sábado 10 – 12 y de 2 – 4 pm
Domingo 10 – 12

Según el prominente filósofo Jiddu Krishnamurti, durante el crecimiento del ser humano su mente es condicionada por la educación, cultura, experiencia, lenguaje, etc. Esto la lleva a fragmentar y catalogar todo lo que encuentra, de acuerdo a ese condicionamiento. Pero una mente condicionada y fragmentada es incapaz de percibir las personas, el mundo, y la vida como realmente son, y se convierte en la principal fuente de conflicto y sufrimiento humano. Este problema no puede ser resulto a través de la misma mente condicionada. Es sólo por medio de una atención completa que la actividad de fragmentación puede ser trascendida. En esta clase Pablo Sender explorará las enseñanzas de J Krishnamurti sobre el condicionamiento, la relación entre el observador y lo observado, la facultad de la atención completa, y la meditación.

Serie completa $50, una sola sesión $15

Barbara Hebert and Ananya Sri Ram Rajan
Weekend Retreat
Empowering the Divine Feminine
March 31 – April 2
Friday 7:30 – 9 pm, Saturday 10 – noon, 2 – 4 pm
Sunday 10 – noon

Many women who walk a spiritual path tend to nurture and support others, often allowing their own needs to fall by the wayside. We are compassionate to others, but hard on ourselves; we provide love to others, but feel guilty about allowing that love to surround us; we listen to the voice of inner knowing for others, but are often too busy to listen to it for our own good. This retreat is designed to facilitate an understanding of the oneness of all life at the deepest level, using the archetypal qualities of the Divine Feminine, inherent in every individual, as a foundation for self-care as well as caring for others. Among other activities, the retreat includes discussion, visualization, journaling, and meditation.

Robert Ellwood
Four Mornings
Christian Mysticism
April 4 – 7
Tuesday – Friday 10 – noon

The Christian spiritual tradition is replete with mystical experience, despite some opposition to it. We will first survey the meaning of mysticism, then discuss the mysticism of the Gospel of John and the concept of the Kingdom of God. In later classes we will look at the medieval classic, The Cloud of Unknowing, and Franciscan devotional mysticism. Moving on to Protestantism, we will consider the Reformers Luther and Calvin and their ambivalent attitudes toward mysticism, George Fox and the Quakers, and Thomas Traherne’s remarkable mystical book, Centuries. Finally we will examine Theosophical interpretations of Christian mysticism, based on Geoffrey Hodson’s analysis of the parable of the Prodigal Son in his Hidden Wisdom in the Holy Bible, vol. 1.

Ed Abdill
Four Mornings
The Road that Leads to the Heart of the Universe
April 11 – 14
Tuesday – Friday 10 – noon

St Augustine wrote, “Our hearts are ever restless ‘til they find their rest in Thee,” and HP Blavatsky told us of a road that leads to the very heart of the universe. Where is that road and where is the peace for which every heart longs? Through archetypal symbols in Christian scripture and with the help of Theosophical philosophy we will search for that road and the peace that passes understanding.

Series $50, Single session $15

Elena Dovalsantos
Four Mornings
Man and the Riddle of the Sphinx
April 18 – 21
Tuesday – Friday 10 – noon

Legend has it that in ancient times, the temples of the mysteries and other sacred places were guarded by a sphinx, a mythical creature with a human head and the body of a beast. In order to gain passage, a traveler had to answer a riddle or risk losing his life. The most famous story related to the sphinx was that of Oedipus who was asked, “What goes on four feet in the morning, two at noon, and three in the evening?” Wisely, Oedipus answered: “MAN” and was thereby granted access. What is Man and why is the understanding of Man critical to passage into the Holy of Holies? What could be the significance of this story and what does the sphinx stand for? Could the sphinx be a symbol for Man himself? We will explore myths as well as occult teachings that bring a greater understanding of who and what we are and what it means to be fully human.

Series $50, Single session $15

Padmanabhan Krishna
Saturday Morning
Krishnamurti and the Wisdom Tradition
April 22, Saturday 10 – noon

The Wisdom Tradition as prescribed by different religions and by Theosophy talks of various practices and paths to be undertaken by the disciple for a gradual evolution in wisdom. Krishnamurti denied the role of Paths and gradual evolution through time and effort, saying “Truth is a pathless land”. In this talk we shall consider the role of paths, what they can achieve and what their limitations are. We shall explore what is meant by Truth and Wisdom and whether one can come to ‘freedom’ or ‘liberation’ gradually. How does Krishnamurti’s teaching relate to perennial philosophy?

Single session $15.

Amit Goswami
Four Mornings
Quantum Psychology: A New Science of Transformation
April 25 – 28, Tuesday – Friday 10 – noon

The new field of quantum psychology can heal and transform the human psyche, and bring wholeness to one’s life. It is an integrative and scientific psychology that includes all of human experience – thinking, feeling, and intuition; the experiences of the ego and the transpersonal self; behavioral conditioning and creativity; and the experiences of both the ordinary and sacred dimensions of life. In this course, quantum physicist Amit Goswami will explore how quantum psychology can lead to balance and harmony in our internal psyche and its interactions with the external world. He will provide a step-by-step methodology that can transform both suffering and pleasure into true happiness, and thus bring about the fullness of human potential.

April 28 – 30
Friday 7:30 – 9 pm, Saturday 10 – noon, 2 – 4 pm
Sunday 10 – noon

Vital energy, or what the ancient Chinese called chi, is quantum in nature, a transcendent wave of potentiality expressed as a yin-yang wave particle. In this weekend workshop, Amit will discuss the conceptual basis of vital energy movements, and explore how to experience feelings in the body and in the chakras. He will discuss chakra balancing and other aspects of energy healing, such as healing the imbalances of vital energy movements within the body.

Four Mornings
Amit Goswami
Quantum Economics, Deep Ecology, and Social Transformation
May 2 – 5
Tuesday – Friday 10 – noon

Today’s distorted capitalistic system creates repetitive boom-and-bust cycles, enriching a few at the expense of the majority. While many economists believe a new economic model is necessary, there is no consensus on what to do or how to do it. Amit will discuss a reformulation of economics based on the quantum worldview. Quantum economics recognizes that we not only live and work in a physical place; we also inhabit an internal place of feeling, thinking, and intuition. These aspects of our being must be included in the economic equation. We will explore how vital energies, meaning and values can be restored to economics, and how quantum economics and deep ecology go hand-in-hand in sustainability. They can inspire positive social transformation, protect the planet, and provide a spiritual grounding which gives meaning and dignity to life and to work.
