Theosophy not only offers a vision of the big picture of life and its purpose, it also aids us in the day-to-day challenges of living. Contemplating the intangible creates a bedrock of inner stability as we go along our day, and the problems we face in life give new meaning to the big philosophical questions. This back and forth nurtures a balanced and reliable process of self-transformation.
To help us with life’s challenges, Theosophy presents a simplified take on the preliminary steps of the spiritual path presented in Advaita Vedanta, a school of Hindu philosophy. The teaching speaks of four essential qualifications and six attainments that are vital for the safe and steady spiritual unfoldment of any aspirant. This workshop will explore each of them, along with practical ways to make them a reality in our lives.
- The cultivation of discernment between the Real and the impermanent and what that means in our lives
- The transformative power of renouncing the fruits of our actions when we are still trying our best
- The implications of mastering our thoughts and the effect this has on our actions
- Living with complete trust in the process and the role of pain
- Moving inwardly from the many to the One and the source of true joy
- The role of love in the aspiration toward liberation
Registration includes on-demand access to a recording of the workshop, which can be viewed for two weeks following the date it was presented.
