In the late 1880s Mme. Blavatsky dictated a Diagram of Meditation to one of her close students. The Diagram is meant to assist us in a process of spiritual transformation from the limited perception of our personal ego to that of the divine self. It offers a very comprehensible approach that is not limited to instructions for sitting meditation, but also includes a set of attitudes to be observed during daily life.

Meditation, although not the only component of the spiritual life, is an important aspect of it. This Living Theosophy series explores the foundations of this practice and the obstacles encountered by the aspirant. We will also examine the therapeutic effects of being mindful as shown by modern psychological research and learn a unique technique of meditation that Madame Blavatsky taught to her closest students.
The presenters for this series are members of the Wheaton-Olcott Branch, which meets weekly at our National Center to explore Theosophical teachings.

Everything in the cosmos is subject to a process of evolution that takes eons to unfold. Most kingdoms of nature spontaneously follow this gradual growth, but human beings, by virtue of being endowed with a mind and free will, have the ability to influence the pace of this journey. The Theosophical teachings point to the existence of a path that can greatly accelerate the evolutionary process in those who are able to tread it.

According to the Theosophical teachings, the purpose of our existence is to develop the divine seeds present in every human consciousness. This magnificent growth, which began with primitive man and ends with an enlightened being, takes eons to accomplish. Explore the natural laws and processes that affect the soul's journey through lives and deaths.
What is evolution? Is it a blind process of adaptation as proposed by science or is there a purpose behind it? The Theosophical teachings postulate a complex process of evolution that takes place not only at the physical level, but also in the intellectual and spiritual dimensions.
