About the European School of Theosophy
The European School of Theosophy was launched in England in October 1982 by Geoffrey Farthing, Ianthe Hoskins and Adam Warcup and it was under the direction of Ingrid Eberhard-Evans for many years. Its activities are characterised by a five day programme of intensive, guided study with study material readily available. The School is autonomous and is not part of any organization, Theosophical or otherwise.
The main focus of the School is the research and investigation of the early literature giving rise to the contemporary Theosophical Movement such as HPB’s writings, the Mahatma Letters and more, as well as current developments within the field of humanities and science. Subjects related to Western Esotericism, religions as well as Eastern and Western philosophies are also often blended into the programme.
Courses are designed as an incentive for students to discuss and reach their own conclusions by promoting questioning and a broad mind approach. Opportunity for research projects may be given to bona fide fellows presenting a comprehensive proposal and justification of their aims.
The language of the School is necessarily English, but its location varies each year in places that facilitate opportunities to commune with nature, physical activities as well as contemplation and meditation. Since its inauguration in England, the School has met in Austria, Germany, Holland, Spain, Greece, Italy, Hungary, Belgium, Holland, Israel, Scotland and Wales.
