The European School of Theosophy 15 – 20 October 2012
At the International Theosophical Centre in Naarden, the Netherlands
'A Mind to Embrace the Universe'
This poetical phrase from The Secret Doctrine arouses the spiritual intuition that the human mind has the potential to silently worship, understand and embody the Universe. Unlike a purely analytical and intellectualistic approach to life, an embracing mind experiences the world as a kosmos, a great, wonderful order. A central Theosophical teaching is that our mind is essentially a deathless emanation of the kosmic mind. There is therefore a sacred relationship between divine ideation, nature’s intelligent design and man’s capacity to comprehend and honor both.
During this year’s European School students are invited to explore together different aspects of this intimate relationship between the universal and the human mind. Using H.P. Blavatsky’s writings we will examine, in ten lectures and seven study sessions, the vital connections between consciousness in the kosmos, the nature of our mind and the ideal of human perfectibility. Each day the focus will be on one specific topic which allows us to have a lucid and coherent exploration of the whole theme.
Topics include the dynamics of the kosmic mind, divine geometry, the origin and dual nature of the human mind, psychic and noetic action, and the awakening of the higher mind.
