Welcome to the Web-site of the Theosophical Society in England

The word Theosophy  has been used for many centuries, it is of Greek origin meaning Wisdom of the Gods (theo – of Gods, sophia– wisdom). Wisdom cannot be enclosed within words, it is a Truth which must be discovered and experienced by each one for themselves. Theosophy, sometimes known as the Ageless Wisdom, is the Light which shines through the many coloured lamps of religion. It is the thread of truth in scriptures, creeds, symbols, myths and rituals. Divine Wisdom is One, the paths towards it are many.

The Theosophical Society in England is a part of the world-wide theosophical movement with its centre in Adyar, India. The Society is dedicated to the comparative study of religion, science and philosophy and the practice of the Art of Self-Realisation. The Society is composed of members of different religious backgrounds who are united in a belief that mankind is a spiritual family and that humanity can have a glorious future through a compassionate and intelligent way of living.

The Return of the Soul to the One


An introduction course to the ancient philosophy of Plotinus with  David Nieuwjaers.

Friday to Sunday
7th to the 9th October

At the beginning of her book The Key to Theosophy H.P.Blavatsky explains that the origin of western theosophy and mysticism lies in the Neoplatonic school founded in Alexandria by Ammonius Saccas and his leading disciple Plotinus (A.D. 204-270). Whereas Ammonius wrote nothing and very little is known about him and his teaching, Plotinus left us a unique treasury of fifty-four treatises arranged by his disciple Porphyry into six groups of nine each (Greek: ennea), thus giving the title Enneadsto the whole collection.
