Membership of the Theosophical Society in England is applied for through a local group (Lodge or Centre) or directly via Headquarters as a National Member.
You are encouraged to join and participate in events at the TSE branch near you if there is one, and they will be happy to help with your application. There is an annual subscription fee. Branches set their own subscription rates based on the National rate, but these are not expensive, and are generally between £20 & £40.
Residents of countries outside England should contact the National Section of their country of residence on the Adyar website or, if there is no National Section, apply directly to the International Secretary at Adyar.
If you wish to apply for membership directly to the English Section headquarters, or if you have any further enquiries concerning membership, please contact the Membership Registrar Barry Thompson for further information

The Benefits of Joining
The benefits of membership include: the fellowship of like-minded people, free copies of the Society’s journal three times per year, discounts (usually) on events organised by the Society.

- To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
- To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.
- To investigate unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in man.
