Bringing to you Theosophical Resources

Theosophy World is a collection of Theosophical resources available for those researching a specific topic, wanting to find information, how to get information or for those wishing to put together programmes, presentations or contact people who are doing work in these areas. The intention is to make material available on this website and easily accessed through several means.



 As some of the letters in the CORRESPONDENCE of this month show, there are many people who are looking for practical instruction in Occultism. It becomes necessary, therefore, to state once for all: –
 (a) The essential difference between theoretical and practical Occultism; or what is generally known as Theosophy on the one hand, and Occult science on the other, and: –
 (b) The nature of the difficulties involved in the study of the latter.
 It is easy to become a Theosophist.

Another Chapter of Theosophical History Clarified

by Frank Reitemeyer

Since the split up of the Theosophical Society into various lineages after the death of Helena P. Blavatsky, foundress of the Aryan Theosophical Society at New York in 1875 and Head of its Esoteric School there is quarrel until today about the if, how, why and to whom of HPB’s occult successorship, beginning with the 1894 controversy between TS co-founder William Q. Judge and Annie Besant about the leadership. [1]

Geoffrey Hodson - His Occult Life of Research

Geoffrey Hodson developed these powers to a remarkable degree and all his talents were devoted to helping forward humanity at large. At no time did he seek monetary compensation for any of his clairvoyant work in healing or research. By working with accredited scientists, he not only provided valuable insights and knowledge but to a large extent validated the faculty of clairvoyance as a legitimate tool of investigation which could have positive connotations for the future. The validation given by scientists provides credence to his research in areas where scientists cannot go.

Geoffrey Hodson Story

His Life Story

GEOFFREY HODSON was born on the 12th of March 1886 at Wainfleet, Lincolnshire, England at 6:55 am. He was the eldest of five children, three boys and two girls.

His occult experiences began when he was about five or six years old. He had dream experiences in the half waking state and this seemed to be connected with Kundalini. Here are Mr Hodson’s words describing that event.

The Emblem of the Theosophical Society is composed of a number of symbols, all of which have been used from very ancient times to express profound spiritual and philosophical concepts about the human being and the universe. They are found in a variety of forms in the great religions of the world and their universality is further shown by their appearance in widely separated cultures.  Each symbol studied separately will yield a wealth of understanding. 

Taken together, as in this emblem, they suggest a vast evolutionary process embracing the whole of nature, physical and spiritual and their study may lead the serious inquirer to contemplate some of the deepest mysteries of existence.
