The online course, Introduction to Theosophy lvl I. is based on the book “Deity Cosmos & Man: An Outline of Esoteric Science” by Geoffrey A. Farthing, one of the founders of the European School of Theosophy (EuST). His book was first printed in 2010 by The Blavatsky Trust Publications, and they have kindly granted permission to the EuST to use this text for the course created by Juliet Bates.
The course is divided into two parts of 14 chapters each, as they appear in the book. A set of Self-Assessment questions has been formulated for each chapter, and a segment entitled “Connecting the Dots” has been especially prepared to act as a bridge between the chapters, offering further insight into the topics. These segments are also present in video format which aim to create a sense of support and companionship during this journey of discovery.
Each chapter addresses specific teachings of Esoteric Science. The topics include: The Hierarchies of Beings; Akasha and the Astral Light; Elements and Elementals; Death and Rebirth; Spiritualism and Psychism; and Spiritual Development.
The European School of Theosophy will award an “Introduction to Theosophy Certificate” on completion of the course.
