Jenny Baker, the President of the Theosophical Society in England, will be our speaker at the North West Autumn Conference in Manchester on Saturday 29 October.
She will give two talks starting at 1.45 pm at The Quaker Meeting House, 6 Mount St, Manchester M2 5NS
Jenny has served on the Executive Committee for many years and is a Director of The Foundation for Theosophical Studies, the charitable branch of the TSE.She has also run the Theosophical Summer School for the last 12 years.
Her talks will be based on
Sankaracharya’s Crest-Jewel of Wisdom which is a practical and inspiring guide to life.
Its teachings……the shared realizations of an enlightened god-man….. tell us the laws by which we may “untie the bonds of unwisdom,” and thus be evermore free. It helps us to come to know and partake of the majestic power, light, and universal kinship of the Divine within us. It teaches that this is our birthright as humans, and our passport to grander attainments in vaster spheres of consciousness.
All welcome. Tea and Biscuits provided.

Saturday 1st October 2016. 9.00am – 5.00pm
We live at a critical turning point in global and human affairs. A new kind of spirituality is emerging based on very powerful ancient ideas known as the Ageless Wisdom. This knowledge predates religion, philosophy and science and offers a logical and comprehensive explanation for human and cosmic evolution.
This event, featuring some of the country’s best communicators of this wisdom, will look at how science and spirituality are converging, how human beings can gain a greater understanding of the way they and the universe work and how each of us can achieve a greater degree of self-development.
All day tickets £10 (includes coffee and tea).
PLEASE bring a packed lunch. Hot drinks will be provided

We are happy to welcome back Robert Woolley from Northampton as our Guest Speaker at the 2016 Federation Spring Conference Merseyside.
Robert will be giving 2 talks at Merseyside. The first begins at 2 pm and is entitled:
The Masters of Wisdom and the Brotherhood of Humanity
This talk explores the nature and significance of “The Masters” who were behind the Theosophical Movement in the Nineteenth Century.
It attempts to disentangle some of the related concepts of Enlightenment, Illumination, Supernatural powers, Secret Fraternities and World Government and the concept of Brotherhood which they promoted.
It also explains how this is relevant to our own lives and spiritual development in the 21st Century.
There will be a break for a BRING AND SHARE AFTERNOON TEA
The Second talk is :
The Mystery of Consciousness
Most of us are conscious, more or less, most of the time.
So it is surprising that we have so little direct knowledge of consciousness.
The scientific community have, until the last 10 years, steered clear of the subject, not least because of the impossibility of defining it, and the impossibility of measuring subjective experience.
In this talk we shall explore the experience of consciousness and relate that experience to scientific findings and to the ancient wisdom.
All welcome. Venue: Friends Meeting House, 22 School Lane, Liverpool. L1 3BT
