The spiritual function of art and design - Sunday February 11

Sunday February 11, 14:00 (doors open at 13:30) - Blavatsky House, De Ruijterstraat 74, The Hague

International public lectures

What is the secret of music? Why does a certain type of music move you? Or why do certain structures, sculptures or paintings bring you into a different sphere?

In abstract art, we do not recognise anything of the visible world surrounding us. What is its purpose and what is it the artist is trying to express? Are we able to recognise the universal symbolism in certain works of art? And is it possible for art to perform a spiritual function? Discover the world behind art and design.

Look at art in a different light and join the Theosophy Talk on ‘The spiritual function of art and design’ on Sunday February 11th.

A cosmic view of life - Sunday January 14

Sunday January 14, 14:00 (doors open at 13:30) - Blavatsky House, De Ruijterstraat 74, The Hague

International public lectures

Cosmos, literally ‘order’, is the name given by the ancient Greeks to the universe, in which a certain harmony and order rules. We humans are walking symbols of the cosmos. We are the home for countless interacting - living - building blocks: cells, bacteria, molecules, atoms. With our mind we continuously influence this microcosm - consciously and unconsciously.

If we look at the macrocosm, we are not always aware of the mutual influence that exists between all life being part of it. If we are open to a universal, cosmic view of life, based on the esoteric tradition or Theosophia, we are better able to recognize this interconnectedness.

According to Theosophy, the same cosmic life flows through everything in the cosmos. It is one organic whole in which all life is on its way to become more and more aware of the unity of the cosmos. Compassion is the law that rules the cosmos.

These are no daily thoughts, but in this talk we will show that you can find them in all major religions, and that scientific research aproaches more and more the ancient wisdom or Theosophia.

Karma and the rise and fall of civilizations - Sunday December 10

Sunday December 10, 14:00 (doors open at 13:30) - Blavatsky House, De Ruijterstraat 74, The Hague

International public lectures

A key aspect of a civilization is the presence of a mindset directed to spiritual and intellectual values. That means for instance that the general interest prevails over the personal interest. And that no one is excluded from society.

According to the theosophical teachings inspiring and wise people appear cyclically and give spiritual and intellectual impulses. Such an impulse is the reason for the rise of a civilization.

In every step of development there is the choice: does the general interest prevail or does the personal interest? If the last prevails then the fall of a society sets in..

According to Theosophy human beings reincarnate cyclically and in groups. At this moment an indication for the cycle of reincarnation for the average man, and thus for a group of people and for civilizations is about 1500-2000 years. In this talk we will reflect therefore on the characteristices of civilizations from the past, like those of the Greek and the Romans, to see if we can recognize these nowadays. And we will also talk about what we can do now to help build the civilization of our next life.
