The Theosophical Society In Oakland


Join us as we study and explore the concepts of Theosophy, our self-realization, and development. We focus on examining, in the light of Theosophy, the latest scientific research, and teachings of ancient and modern philosophers, psychologist, and mystics.  Our Motto is:  There is no religion (or law) higher than truth.

What is Theosophy

Theosophy promotes understanding and unity among people of all races, nationalities, philosophies, and religions. Therefore all people, whatever their race, creed, sex, caste, or color, are invited to participate equally in the life and work of the Society. The Society imposes no dogmas, but points toward the source of unity behind all differences. Devotion to truth, love for all living beings, and commitment to a life of altruism are the marks of the true Theosophist.

The Three Theosophical Objects

To form a nucleus of the Universal family of of humanity.

To encourage the study of comparative Religion, Philosophy, and Science.

To investigate unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in the human being.
