National President Stephen McDonald 20 September 7.30pm
This talk will discuss the significance of a lodge in the Theosophical Society (TS) by using the symbolism of the lotus as an analogy. A lodge should represent the essence of the values of the TS as a whole and thereby, become a centre for spiritual regeneration. The talk will be interactive in nature and input will be sourced from the audience.
Stephen has been an active member of the Theosophical Society since 1976. He is a past President of Blavatsky Lodge, Sydney and was recently elected as National President of the TS in Australia. He has had an enduring interest in the work of J Krishnamurti and Theosophical classics, such as Voice of the Silence and Light on the Path.
For many years, Stephen ran a private clinic as a homeopath and later became a lecturer at Torrens University. He holds a Master of Health Science degree from Newcastle University and a Graduate Certificate in Teaching.
