Making it “work”, preparing the final presentation

Speakers: Fernando de Torrijos (TS-Adyar), originally from Spain but now living in the USA, and Barend Voorham (TS-Point Loma, The Hague) from the Netherlands. Theme title: “Be a Lamp upon Yourself.”

Ser uma lampada de si mesmo

Fernando de Torrijos has years of experience with psychiatric patients whom he helps by teaching meditation. He inspired the attendees to meditate with him.

At the end of the gathering:  Marcos de Resende speaks, also on the photo besides Barend (far left) Fernando de Torrijos and, just behind the flowers, Isis de Resende

The lectures of Barend Voorham, he presented them in fluent Portuguese (!), were based on the Seven Jewels of Wisdom. After each lecture he asked three questions, which were enthusiastically discussed in small groups.

It was a unique occasion with presenters from two Theosophical mainstreams.
