Ingmar de Boer (1966) has been a member of the TS since 1989, most of the time as an active lodge member. Since 2008 he has lived and worked at the International Theosophical Centre at Naarden, The Netherlands. At the moment he is chairman of the Naarden Annie Besant Lodge and vice-chairman of the Dutch Section. Areas of study most close to his heart are The Secret Doctrine, especially the first volume, and the origin of the Book of Dzyan and, in line with that, Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and Sanskrit. Astrology and its esoteric background have been another
one of his interests, and over the years he has written a number of articles on most of these topics and has given many lectures and courses. Together with David Reigle and Jacques Manich, he initiated a website presenting research articles on the origin of the Book of Dzyan.
