    Our thoughts are with the victims of Hurricane Harvey which has left thousands without the basic necessities. We have yet to know the total effect of this disaster, however the Theosophical Order of Service and Theosophical Society in America are working together to collect funds for future disbursement. Please remember 100% of your donation will go to the impacted area as the TOS is an all volunteer organization. Thank you for your generous donation. Please use the Donate button above.

    We will continue to send thoughts of strength and peace to the area and the people traumatized by this event.
