Theosophical Society - Lotus Flower on a pond. Introduction to Theosophy with Barbara Hebert, Juli Castano, and Ananya Sri Ram Rajan.  Barbara Herbert is a third-generation Theosophist who has been involved in local, regional, and national offices throughout her years of membership.

We invite you to join with other seekers to learn some essential Theosophical concepts in a friendly and informal atmosphere. Participants will engage with the content of each class through meditation, discussion, and practical application. Classes are successive, so we encourage participants to attend the whole series or watch the recordings of previous classes.

This is the first session of a two-part course. If you wish to enroll in “Introduction to Theosophy: Part II” in April, you must first complete Part I as a prerequisite.
