The EuST and Academy of Theosophy & Esotericism are happy to present their first on-line Intuitive Course entitled: ‘An Intuitive Course on the Stanzas of Dzyan – Anthropogenesis.’
The Stanzas of Dzyan, part of the “Secret Book of Dzyan” of Tibetan origin, are the basis of Madame Blavatsky’s magnum opus “The Secret Doctrine.” Writing about the Stanzas she says in the Proem:
“Indeed it must be remembered that all these Stanzas appeal to the
inner faculties rather than to the ordinary comprehension of the
physical brain”. (H. P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine vol. I, p.21)
In fact, the idea behind this course is to take an intuitive approach to the Stanzas of Anthropogenesis rather than an intellectual one. Not going in search of something but letting that something come to us in any form it may choose. It is a journey of discovery into our own inner depths to connect with the mystical keys and threads of the twelve Stanzas, in an experience of passive contemplation, unique for each person.
We are guided in this intuitive journey of discovery by fifth-four Exercises, linked to fifth-four Connecting the Dots which may include another student’s response to the exercise as sample. Each Stanza is also presented in a beautifully suggestive video format. No previous study is required but a study journal is recommended.
The Course exercises were written by three ladies, from Sidmouth Lodge Theosophical Society England, who kindly gifted their work to the EuST in the hope it would inspire other Theosophists to study The Secret Doctrine. They created the course after completing “An Intuitive Approach to the Seven Stanzas of Dzyan” in Cosmogenesis, by Beverley B. Noia, and were curious to do the same with Anthropogenesis. The course also includes an inspiring video of each Stanza.
The supplementary material was prepared by Juliet Bates – Course Teacher and Director of Online Courses and Publication and Erica Georgiades – Director of the EuST.
