Wheaton, Illinois: Theosophical Society in America, 2019. (68 minutes) You have likely heard of the secret teachings of all ages – a body of knowledge that goes under many names. Sometimes it’s called the Ancient Wisdom or the perennial philosophy. It’s reflected in traditions such as Theosophy, the Kabbalah, esoteric Christianity, Hermeticism, Sufism, and many others. It is discussed in many books, but it still often seems hard to pin down what, exactly, it is. Why are these teachings...

Wheaton, Illinois: Theosophical Society in America, 2019. (1 hour, 27 minutes) The Tibetan Book of the Dead (Bardo Thodol) is traditionally believed to be the work of the legendary Padma Sambhava in the 8th century A.D. The Bardo Thodol teaches that once awareness is freed from the body, it creates its own reality as one would experience in a dream. This dream occurs in various phases (bardos) in ways both wonderful and terrifying. Overwhelming peaceful and wrathful visions and deities appear....

Wheaton, Illinois: Theosophical Society in America, 1956. (50 minutes) A brief outline of kundalini, a power which lies latent in most human beings - its source, its operation in the human body, and the nerve centers through which it operates. The safest way to develop this power is through a yoga practice. The motive of the yoga practice is of utmost important -- deep, impersonal, non-possessive love which embraces all of humanity. Drawing from passages of the Voice of the silence and Bhagavad...

Wheaton, Illinois: Theosophical Society in America, 2018. (78 minutes) Science and spirituality are often believed to be fundamentally opposed to one another, yet the application of scientific methodology to the study of spiritual experience has led to striking validation of the latter.

Wheaton, Illinois: Theosophical Society in America, 2017.

Believing passionately in the myth of Zep Tepi, a time when enlightened semi-divine beings shared wisdom with early Egyptians and taught that all things are One, he reintroduced this spiritual philosophy for the betterment of his people....
