Benefits of Joining
The benefits of membership include: the fellowship of like-minded people; free copies of the Society’s quarterly journal; discounts (usually) on events organised by the Society. You will also have the privilege of belonging to a tried and tested Organisation which has been bringing the Great Esoteric Truths to the Western World for 130 years. We welcome anyone who is in sympathy with Our Three Objects which are:
1. To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
2. To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.
3. To investigate unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in man.
Members pay an annual subscription to their local Branch or to Headquarters and the first year’s subscription must be received with the Application form.
You are encouraged to join the TS branch near you if there is one and they will be happy to help with your application. Branches set their own subscription rates but generally these are not expensive. Financial hardship is not a barrier to membership and applicants who genuinely cannot afford the subscription may make an application in confidence to the Branch Treasurer.
Please contact your nearest branch to let them know you would like to join, or contact Headquarters, and we will be happy to help. Local branches can be found on the ‘Contact’ page of this site.
If there is no branch near you then you may join as a “National Member” via Headquarters. Payment for the first year’s subscription – which is currently £40 for those working fulltime/self-employed (£20 for low waged, unemployed, fulltime student or pensioner) – must accompany the Application Form (see the download links on the bottom) and should be sent to: The Theosophical Society in England, 50 Gloucester Place, London, WIU 8EA. (please make your cheque payable to The Theosophical Society in England)
National Members joining after 30th June may pay half the amount for the year. Those who join after 1 October, will have their subs cover the period to the end of December the following year. Financial hardship is not a barrier to membership and applicants who genuinely cannot afford the subscription may make an application in confidence to the National President at Headquarters in writing. National members may pay their Membership Subscriptions by Bank Standing Order, a ‘Renewal’ form is sent out in December giving current subscription details and a Standing Order form for you to complete and return to HQ.
