• The Art of Living: A New Webinar Series

    The Theosophical Order of Service is presenting a new webinar series called The Art of Living.

    This free interactive webinar will discuss the topics of conditioning, self-love, active listening, and compassion and how these aspects of ourselves are necessary to observe in order to enhance our own sense of being in the world.

    The series started September 2 and will meet again November 4 at 4 pm CST. Recordings of the previous two webinars are available.

    Participation is free. To join or for more information please email us at info@theoservice.org.

  • What Does Helping Others Mean to You?

    The TOS wants to know “What does helping others mean to you?” Not your definition, but why do you help others? What makes you volunteer? How has it changed your life?

    We are hoping to collect videos of people answering these questions. But if you feel shy about being on a video (camera phones are great and easy…hint hint!), we welcome you to send us an audio recording of what helping others means to you. If you send us either a video or audio, please also send us permission to use it as part of our outreach. We are intending to put together various clips as an introduction to the TOS to be used in lodges and study groups.

    We thank you in advance!

Suffering and Fear

One of the questions that arises in discussions with TOS workers is whether we fear the suffering that we encounter in our work. Despite our Theosophical background, we are human. And despite being human, we carry within us the animal instinct to protect ourselves for our survival. We respond to threats in different ways. We either confront it, run from it, or just stand there unable to move. Read more about Suffering and Fear
