White Lotus Day
Open to Friends & Members of the Detroit Lodge

 

Join various groups of the Theosophical community online this year for a White Lotus Day celebration.  This special occasion honoring and remembering the extraordinary life of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (August 12, 1831 - May 8, 1891) is held per HPB's wish.  In her will, she stated:

 

"I desire that yearly, on the anniversary of my death some of my friends should assemble at the Headquarters of the Theosophical Society and read a chapter of Edwin Arnold's Light of Asia and Bhagavad Gita."

 

The program will include contemplative readings and meditation, followed by a presentation by National Secretary David Bruce on "White Lotus Day: Celebrating the Life of Madame Blavatsky."  The evening will end with a slideshow featuring some inspiring excerpts from HPB's writings.

Inner Peace & Outer Peace: The Road to Letting Go of Our Fears
Presentation by Mike Whitty

A gentle reflection on how we can calm our inner selves to face our life journey with appreciation, thankfulness, and hope; with spiritual confidence taking our inner peace out into the world where outer peace is badly needed.  Think of sharing things that make you brave about our wonderful inner spiritual journeys and help you act kindly toward all our  relations, both the joyous and easy things as well as the tough and traumatic life shadows

 

Mike Whitty is working on his fears, worries, and frustrations by trying to live in the now, enjoying the moment with a focus on hope and optimism about the possible human and the possible future.  Mike believes love is letting go of fear.

An Evening with J. Krishnamurti
Video viewing followed by group discussion
Facilitated by Sandy Naimou

 

Though the exact date of his birth is not known, Jiddu Krishnamurti was born in May, either in the year of 1895 or 1896.  In light of this, we have brought two programs inspired by his life and work this month.  First, Barbara Hebert will be sharing on how to live a spiritual life through the tenets of "At the Feet of the Master."  Then, on May 28, Sandy will show a short talk given by Krishnamurti after which we will share in discussion on the topic he brings to light.  The topic of the evening will be shared in the lodge's upcoming news. 

 

Sandy Naimou currently serves as President of the Detroit Lodge.  Though she studied psychology and women's studies in her academic life, she is primarily interested in the practice and philosophy of Yoga.
