Precis

In this interactive talk, Stephen McDonald, National President of the Theosophical Society in Australia, will explore the possibilities and potentials for our Society in the next 3 – 5 years. 2025 will be the 150th year of the founding of the TS. Will we be a floundering organization, or can we ensure a future of growth and regeneration? What effect can a small movement such as the TS have on the world? And why does it matter? We will discover some of the answers to these and to other questions in a spirit of enquiry.

The Presenter

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 post-graduate qualification in teaching.
