Theosophical Society

A presention by Linda Oliveira:  The word ‘dharma’ is rich and profound suggesting, among other things, an ideal state which contains within it the inherent potential for growth and evolution. We will consider the applicability of this term to the Theosophical Society when it was formed, whether the dharma of the Society may have changed since 1875, and whether it even requires a change in emphasis at this time.

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.
