SUNDAY

1:00—2:30 pm.  STUDIES IN THE SECRET DOCTRINE, VOLUME II,                                                 Ongoing
Facilitator:  Carol Hurd              2nd & 4th Sundays of the month  

In Vol. I we explored the sweep and daring of the vision proclaimed in H.P. Blavatsky"s Secret Doctrine from the
coming into being of the whole universe to a concern with our own solar system.
Now, in Vol. II we will focus on the coming into being and the evolution of Humanity through the 7 Root Races
(or developmental stages).  We are beginning with an introduction including a study of 3 new propositions
which do stand in opposition to the teachings of Modern Science, the first of which is the simultaneous
evolution of 7 human groups on 7 different portions of our globe.  There are 2 other propositions equally
provocative. This is a study of how we as humanity came to be and our place in the whole cosmos. Through
this study we can be led to a new and more encompassing world view that can make a difference in how we
live our lives.  Text H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II. Supplementary texts: Peopling the Earth and The
Divine Plan, both by Geoffrey Barborka.



3:00—4:30 pm.  SPEAKERS FORUM.  Speakers and their topics are listed elsewhere.


6:00—7:00 pm.  BHAGAVAD GITA: CHAPTER EIGHT – THE TOPIC OF IMPERISHIBLE BRAHMAN
Facilitator:  Janani Cleary                                                                                                Ongoing     
                                                                                          
This chapter is kicked off by Arjuna asking a series of questions: “What is Brahman?” “What is the inner-self?”
“What is the destiny based on our actions (after death)?” “To whom do the merits of prescribed sacrifices
accrue?” “What can be said about Prakriti (the elemental essence)?”  “What is above all that?” “How can a Yogi
dedicate himself to know the Lord at the time of death?”  If any one of these questions are of any interest to you
then you would be remiss to miss Chapter 8.  If all of them grab your attention, then the answers to them will
show to you how it does not get any better than this!  So, come, explore and discover what the answers are and
how they directly affect and unfold to you the solutions to all of life’s challenges.  See you there!



7:30—9 pm.  MEDITATION SESSION IN THE TRADITION OF THE NIMATJULLAHI SUFI ORDER  Facilitator:
Carole Ross                        EVERY SUNDAY                                                                          NEW!!!

Tea will be served at 7:30.  Mediation will begin at 8:00 with music and poetry (on CD's).  Bring a throw pillow if
you prefer to sit on the floor.  I look forward to sharing this time with you.



MONDAY

6—7:15 pm.  MAN IN SOCIETY  Facilitator: Edgar Quiroga

It is indicated in esoteric teaching that both man and woman are a part of Higher Self and that our aim and
direction in life is to become aware of the Higher Self and thus fulfill our purpose in life. We all live in a
community. Can the Society we live in have a different aim and direction? What is the true purpose of Man in
Society? For those interested in pursuing this inquiry further the class is being offered.

7:30—8:30 pm.  THE POWER OF NOW Facilitator:  Marla Past                                                            NEW!!!

A new discussion group taking form based on the teachings of  Eckhart Tolle.
The subjects: How to become free of unhappiness. How to transform suffering into peace.  Please bring your
questions, and let us explore the possibilities!



TUESDAY

11:00—11:55 am.  THE ADVAITA MASTERS FOCUS GROUP                                                            
Ongoing                     
Facilitators: Ralph Beaudry, Theresa Lawrence

Advaita is one of the world’s most ancient philosophies.  In the dialogues with Masters one catches the
inexpressible; something indescribable.  Words are the vehicle but between the words - the flow is there.
Energy moves, grace moves, joy moves.  A Master's words move you inward to experience 'who' you really are.
This is not a teaching.  Share these words with us on Tuesdays.


        
12 Noon—1:30 pm.  ESOTERICA—Facilitators: Ralph Beaudry, Theresa Lawrence                            Ongoing

Come explore with us the many esoteric topics which comprise the landscape of inner inquiry.  This is a forum
for all to share their ideas and questions.   A Meal for the Mind will follow where the discussion may continue.


3:00—4:30 pm. THE GIFT OF MYSTIC POETRY   Facilitator:  Brian Burns                                      
Ongoing                                                                   2nd and 4th Tuesday


5:00—7:00 PM. ESOTERIC SCHOOL OF THEOSOPHY   
2nd Tues. of the Month       EST Members Only           
                       
For more information see Carol Hurd, theosophy2011@gmail.com or call 954-420-0908, leave a message
and Carol will return your call.


6:00 pm. A COURSE IN MIRACLES (ACIM)
Facilitator: Zandra Vann    1st, 3rd & 4th TUES.          Ongoing    
                                   
"A universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is not only possible but necessary. It is this
experience toward which the course is directed."  (MT, COT, pg 77.)
A Course in Miracles therefore is a universal spiritual wisdom teaching, not a religion.  [Paraphrased from A
Course In Miracles - Foundation For Inner Peace: web site (ACIM.ORG)]   This group of teachers and students
will review all three volumes of the curriculum as well as introducing other resources for discussion, under-
standing and practicing the principles of ACIM.  To remove obstacles of awareness of ourselves and inner
peace.  "Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.  Herein lies the peace of God."



WEDNESDAY

5:30—6:45 pm.  MEDITATION—SITTING PRACTICE AND INTEGRATION INTO YOUR DAILY LIFE                  
Facilitator:  Tony Spatarella                                                                                               Ongoing

This class focuses on calming meditation, insight meditation (Vipassana), chakra purification and Tantric
visualization meditations.  There is also some discussion on how to integrate the practice into our lives on a
daily basis.



7:00—8:00pm.  DRK DRSHYA VIVEKA OR DISCRIMINATION (discerning the difference)
                        OF THE SEER AND THE SEEN  Facilitator:  Janani Cleary                                      Ongoing

This title may seem like it is a mis-statement as the question may arise: Why is it necessary to talk about and
discern the difference between the Seer and the Seen?  Is it not obvious that they are different so, where is the
necessity to apply any discriminating faculty to these terms, much less to the actual beings and forms. While it
is true that the Seer (the being) of the Seen (any object or the world) are separate and distinct, the tendency of
the Seer is to identify with what is Seen.  Because the Seer can never be what is the Seen, any identification
that occurs is false. Therefore a person who commits this error then suffers from a case of mistaken identity.
Unfortunately, this is the lot of every human being!  Living a false life is fraught with peril because it is like being
in a fog in which you can never accurately see what is really there.  Thus, this text is extremely relevant because
it provides you with the understanding and clear vision that allows you to live life objectively, free from
confusion and ultimately, to truly see yourself - limitless and complete.



THURSDAY

6:00—7:30 pm.  MEDITATION SESSION IN THE TRADITION OF THE NIMATJULLAHI SUFI ORDER

served at 6:00.  Mediation will begin at 6:30 with music and poetry (on CD's).  Bring a throw pillow if you prefer
to sit on the floor.  I look forward to sharing this time with you.


7:00—8:30 pm.   BUDDHISM 101 – FOUNDATIONS OF BUDDHISM                                                Ongoing

Facilitator: Leilani Racoma-Lessnau

Join us in examining the essential nature of the human being through the Spiritual Scientific investigations of
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), an Austrian born doctor of philosophy, highly trained scientist and clairvoyant. We
will endeavor to dive deeply into the mysteries of the human being’s fourfold structure of bodies (Physical,
Etheric, Astral, and Ego) and how these bodies relate to the human soul forces of Thinking, Feeling and
Willing. These concepts have been modernized through the work of Rudolf Steiner. We will share our thoughts
regarding these foundational keys in discussion and investigations of Spiritual Science.



2:00—4:00 pm.  B.O.T.A.  Studies of the Tarot.  Facilitator:  Margarita Nantel                                 
Second Saturday of the Month—April 8th,  May 13th ,  June 10th                        Ongoing                                       

Builders of the Adytum (B.O.T.A.) is a true Mystery School, an outer vehicle of the Inner Spiritual Hierarchy,
sometimes called the Inner School.  Its system is that of the Western, Qabalistic-Hermetic tradition.  An
important part of B.O.T.A. work involves the study of Tarot. Tarot is one of the foremost aids to spiritual
transformation as the series of Tarot keys is a record of the inner knowledge of the western sages in picture
form.  It is this use of Tarot that our presentations will employ, not any common use such as fortune telling.
