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, founded in 1875, is a worldwide body whose primary object is Universal Brotherhood without distinction based on the realization that life, and all its diverse forms, human and non-human, is indivisibly One.
The Society imposes no belief on its members, who are united by a common search for Truth and desire to learn the meaning and purpose of existence through study, reflection, self-responsibility, and loving service.
Theosophy is the wisdom underlying all religions when they are stripped of accretions and superstitions. It offers a philosophy which renders life intelligible and demonstrates that justice and love guide the cosmos. Its teachings aid the unfoldment of the latent spiritual nature in the human being.

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.
