Autobiography

Geoffrey Hodson (12 March 1886 in Lincolnshire, England - 23 January 1983 in Auckland, New Zealand) was a occultist, Theosophist, mystic, philosopher and esotericist, and a leading light for over 70 years in the Theosophical Society. He was educated in England. Aside from all that, he was also a freemason and a priest in the Liberal Catholic Church.

He served with distinction in the British Army as an Officer during the First World War, which experience seems to have prompted him to spend his life attempting to eradicate the causes of wars and suffering through his teachings and insights.

He was the author over fifty books on psychic powers, Theosophy, Spiritualism, mysticism, fairies, angels, meditation, clairvoyance, health and disease. On this page you will find the ones still in print.

He also wrote over two hundred articles and held radio talks. He traveled the world extensively lecturing for The Theosophical Society.

Annie Wood Besant (1847-1933) was a prominent Theosophist, women's rights activist, writer and orator. She was born in 1847 in London into a middle-class family of Irish origin. She fought for the causes she thought were right, starting with freedom of thought, women's rights, secularism (she was a leading member of the National Secular Society), birth control, Fabian socialism and workers' rights. Soon she was earning a small weekly wage by writing a column for the National Reformer, the newspaper of the National Secular Society.

She was one of the leading figures in Theosophy. Soon after becoming a member of the Theosophical Society she went to India for the first time (in 1893). She devoted much of her energy not only to the Society, but also to India's freedom and progress.Annie Wood Besant (1847-1933) was a prominent Theosophist, women's rights activist, writer and orator.
