Theosophical Order of Service Campaign for Kindness

Please join in the TOS Campaign for Kindness

Here’s how it works: the entire year of 2018, becomes a canvas for your acts of kindness, large or small. You can structure it any way you like.

  • Perhaps you join in a community project.. Find one by clicking here.
  • Perhaps you devote a week to carrying a bag on your daily walk, picking up at least one piece of litter per day. Or maybe it's seven pieces per day--whatever is comfortable for you.
  • Maybe you commit to one act of kindness each day during the year, even if it's just making eye contact and smiling at someone, holding the elevator, letting a driver into your lane, sending a comforting thought, etc.
  • Maybe some of your family members or co-workers would like to join you in performing acts of kindness.

The size of the act doesn't matter. What matters is that it comes from your heart and feels genuine to you.

The follow up:

We’re asking that each person who participates send an email by November 15 to TOS Liaison Coordinator Kathy Gann (info@DenverTS.org) to let us know what you did, or even a fraction of what you did. Just a brief note will be fine.

Don't worry about looking like a "credit grabber" because your acts of kindness will be published anonymously. Who knows how many people will see your kindness and think, "I'd like to do that too!" And then your kindness multiplies, and that's the whole idea.

Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.

We are sad to announce the passing of Joy Mills at the Krotona Institute in Ojai, California at 10:35 am. She served as President of the Theosophical Society in America from 1965–1974, and then as international Vice President in Adyar, India from 1974–1980. During 75 years of membership, Joy taught numerous courses, lectured in over 50 countries and authored several important books. We will miss her keen mind, her insightful teaching, and her example of lifelong dedication to Theosophy.

A Special Announcement Regarding Quest Books

November 13, 2015, Wheaton, IL. – The publication of our November 2015 release, The Body and Its Symbolism: A Kabbalistic Approach by Annick de Souzenelle, marks the last new title the Quest Books imprint will publish for the commercial market. All Quest Books titles currently in print will continue to be available through the same channels as before and will continue to be reprinted and made easily available for years to come. All Theosophical Publishing House (TPH) titles produced in the US or India will continue to be available. The only change for long-time customers and supporters will be that our annual production of 10 - 12 new books will come to an end.
