Johanna Vermeulen has lived and worked at the International Headquarters of The Theosophical Society (Point Loma – Blavatskyhouse, The Hague) in The Netherlands since 1973. She combines her professional interest in healthcare issues with a love for and knowledge of the Classics and, through these, for Theo-sophia, the core of all world religions. She is the archivist and librarian of the TS (Point Loma), translates and edits books, writes articles, and also gives lectures, public courses and private studies. From 1985 she has been studying with a small team the Theosophical Raja Yoga education, developed by Katherine Tingley and Gottfried de Purucker, both the heads of the TS (Point Loma). For 40 years they practiced this method at the International Headquarters of the TS in Point Loma, Cal., and in other Theosophical centres worldwide.
Johanna developed the theoretical background of the Raja Yoga education, made these teachings and method suitable for todays situation, and understandable for teachers. She also developed, based on Raja Yoga education, an organic method for (theosophical) students to transform themselves the highly metaphysical theosophical teachings into buddhic simple, inspiring ideas to share with non-theosophists. Ideas inspiring enough to effectually alleviate suffering in the world.
