Summer Solstice Weekend

Yesterday, Sunday 06-25-17, we held the 2017 annual Conclave for The Paracelsian Order, TPO.  The Live Oak Monastery  (LOM) project is officially a “cloister” of the TPO.  This spiritual organization has as it goal to be a teaching and healing order.  Madre Grande is the primary and oldest center of TPO is in southern San Diego county, and has been in operation for 35 years.  We are a small but dedicated group who strive to live by principles of alignment with our Higher Self, our inner God-Self, in performing the work of the Order.

Theosophy is a philosophical system which was revived and popularized by a Russian woman who separated from her husband, and travelled to India, Nepal, and nearby areas seeking spiritual knowledge and advancement as a student / chela / lanoo of spiritual masters.  After her initial training and ongoing educational support, she founded the Theosophical Society.

In some ways this woman, Helena Petovna Blavatsky is the grand-mother of today’s modern New Age movement.  She popularized Hindu and Buddhist ideas and concepts for a Western audience.  Also she & the early society took on students to work on their embodiment of these principles of so-called “divine wisdom.”

Another name for this philosophical body of teachings and practices is “Perennial Wisdom.”  Currently LOM is an even smaller, but active part of the TPO.  LOM had a center in San Diego, and is involved in a theosophical book study group in the Central Valley of California, FTSC, Fresno Theosophical Study Center.  Additionally, there is a connection to the theosophical summer campground, Far Horizons, located in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
