T. S.  FOCUS FOR FALL 2017
Dear Members & Friends,

  Welcome back to the lodge after a short disruption due to hurricane Irma.  We are now on our
regular schedule and are very blessed since there was no physical damage to the lodge.  We send
our best wishes to those on the West coast who did not fare as well and to those suffering on the
islands due to hurricane ‘Maria’ and the victims of the earthquake in Mexico.  Let us extend
compassion and prayers to the many souls adversely affected by these forces of nature.
I would like to welcome Benny Rivera as a new member of our lodge.  Benny has been a student of
Vedanta for some time and we are glad he joined this lodge; a group of students of life.

This fall we are very fortunate to have not one, but two National Speakers who will be visiting
our lodge.Prof. Aryel Sanat on Sunday, October 15th at 3 PM, and Prof. Andre Clewell; two valued
authors.  Andre will speak on two occasions: Saturday. Dec. 2nd at 7 PM and again on Sunday
Dec. 3rd at 3 PM.  Look for these events in the program and mark your calendar!  Andre is
traveling from Tallahassee, FL and decided to make the best of it.  I thank both speakers for
sharing their insight - wisdom, time and energy with us.

 We are planning another fundraiser after the Thanksgiving Holiday and will announce the
exact date at a later time.  Thank you so much for your generosity and donations!  Also, we are
planning a couple of new classes on Theosophy starting in January… stay tuned…

Wishing you all a wonderful fall season and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

With appreciation and Love,

Renate zum Tobel
President/ TS-Deerfield


What Theosophy is
:  Theosophy is a unifying concept bridging all religions, paradigms and
philosophies offering an all-encompassing view of the multi-dimensional Kosmos.  Internalizing
these concepts will lead to a heightened awareness of who we are, resulting in an outflow of service
to all beings.
We invite all to include our statement in your meditations and/or at any other time.

The Theosophical Society in America
Has a vision of wholeness that inspires a fellowship united in study, meditation and service.     
Encourages open-minded inquiry into world religions, philosophy, science and the arts in order to
understand the wisdom of the ages, respect the unity of all life and help people explore spiritual self-
Holds that our every action, feeling and thought affects all other beings and that each of us is
capable of, and responsible for, contributing to the benefit of the whole.
Not only does the Society have a
vision of union with one another, and a mission of exploration,
but also an
ethic of putting these high ideals into action.
Membership in the Theosophical Society is open to those who are in sympathy with its

“For mind is like a mirror; it gathers dust while it reflects. It needs the gentle breezes of
Soul-Wisdom to brush away the dust of our illusions.  Seek O Beginner to blend thy Mind
and Soul…Within thy body—the shrine of thy sensations---seek in the impersonal for the
‘eternal man’; and having sought him out, look inward:  thou art Buddha.”
   ----Voice of the Silence by H.P. Blavatsky, 1992 edition, page 26
