Dorothy Bell is well known as an international educator in Theosophy.  She considers that it is the way we each see life that influences our understanding of our world.

We enter this life by the gateway of birth and after spending about 70 years on this planet under all kinds of circumstances we disappear by the gateway of death. This procession of living beings has been going on for thousands of years and yet it does not occur to many people to ask the very pertinent questions as to where we have come from, where we are going, and why we are here.  I.K. Taimni.

These types of pertinent questions are basic to the human quest to make sense of the world we live in – and this relates to having a worldview. In this introductory article, exploration of the following questions will plough some ground on the nature, origins, importance and power of worldviews.

Dorothy Bell explores in context of the theme of the Conference, Exploring the Why of Theosophy, it is timely to review the ‘teaching of the teachings’, the instructional methods of the late 19th century that the Society adopted in its beginnings – which were of its time and represent one model of schooling. Since that time, new ways of teaching have been developed that reflect new models of education. These centre on learning and self-empowerment more than on teaching a subject. The question arises, “Does ‘a new continent of thought’ demand a new mode of teaching?” This will be explored.

Dorothy Bell, international lecturer from Australia on Our Potential For Change. Teachings from the ancient wisdom tradition place us beyond a unitised personality-living-one-lifetime into a higher identity and purpose. Our bigger contect is a sacred journey of evolution, a pilgrimage of the soul returning to its Source in full Self-Realisation through innumerable lifetimes of learning experiences. This bigger picture of identity describes our evolutionary journey in consciousness, marked by specific developmental stages and levels.

In our present New Age time-zone, the human life wave is at a critical turning point in this journey. What is the nature of this turning point - from 'what' to 'what'?  Why are so few moved to take the steep and thorny path of self-transformation?  What limits or enhances the potential for change?  These questions - and others are explored in this presentation.
