A zoom talk by Colyn Boyce
Sunday 3rd July – 6pm UK Time
Even if she never wrote a word – on spiritual or other topics – the life of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky makes for truly fascinating reading and deserves a full-length motion picture film. A natural psychic from an early age growing up in Russia, HPB travelled widely throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas – sometimes on horseback. A professional concert pianist, she also had various entrepreneurial skills – a one point owning an ink factory and selling lumber. Her life changed forever when investigating spiritualist phenomena in Vermont, she met Henry Steel Olcott and together along with William Quan Judge they became principal founders of the modern Theosophical movement in 1875. This talk looks at the life of Blavatsky and summarizes the main tenets of the Ageless Wisdom encapsulated in her major works.
