The presentation: Service is very important to TS, and it is in line with TS’s object in promoting the universal brotherhood of mankind and helping people in suffering.

The service work referred to in this talk was principally conducted at SWARA - a day care centre for intellectually disabled people just across the road from Brisbane Theosophical Society, at the other end of Albert Park. It involved supervision of clients and general management of a sheltered workshop offering a range of easy tasks for these people.

The speaker

Russell first joined the Theosophical Society in Melbourne in 1970 after engaging in parapsychological research at Monash University in the late 60s. He gained a science degree, majoring in physics before specialising in meteorology, then climate change. Although retired now, he still researches Natural Laws and their predominance over the laws and processes devised by Mankind.

Safety Reminder

If you have cold or flu-like symptoms however mild, please do not attend.
