Theosophy is a collection of mystical and occultist philosophies concerning, or seeking direct knowledge of, the mysteries of life and nature, particularly of the nature of divinity and the origin and purpose of the universe. Theosophy is considered part of Western esotericism, which believes that hidden knowledge or wisdom from the ancient past offers a path to enlightenment and salvation.

Reality, Illusion and Life
For this year`s Summer School, we are returning to the popular venue of Hillscourt, the HQ and Conference Centre of the NASUWT, at Rednal, South West Birmingham.
The School runs from 10 -17th August and is titled ‘Reality, Illusion and Life’.
The chief guest speaker who will be giving the prestigious Blavatsky Lecture as well as the Public lecture is Eric McGough, former National President and founder of both the Diploma in Theosophy course as well as the new Higher Diploma course.
The programme follows that of previous years with lectures, Study Groups, Workshops, Yoga, Qigong and Meditations.
Hillscourt is set in the lovely Lickey Hills and weather permitting, there will be two chances to go on lead walks through the beautiful woods that surround the immediate area. The Wednesday afternoon outing will be a Canal boat trip starting at Gas Street Basin in the vibrant centre of Birmingham.
Hillscourt has excellent en suite accommodation and serves wholesome Vegetarian and Vegan food. The number of rooms are limited and so early booking is recommended at this particular venue.
