WEEKLY Non-sectarian GROUP MEDITATION -  Tuesdays 5.15 - 6.15 pm 

Everyone welcome - no experience necessary  See below for details 


Current Programme 

Sunday 5 Feb 2023  Nurturing the Soul Workshop continues with

How to clear, balance, and strengthen your own chakras  

And including  The Physiological, Psychological and Spiritual Functions of the Chakras.  

Structure wise the chakras have an inner and an outer wheel, and a front side and a back side. The front side sets up the future. The chakras down your back bring in what is historical, but also what is going to support in a positive way, your subconscious and your spirit. Memory is genetically encoded in your chakras.

The equilibrium in a chakra’s energies not only correlates with and influences the health of the organs located in the chakras fields – but any imbalances in the chakra’s energies precede (and thus predict) the onset of disease. Clearing and balancing impaired energies in a chakra can head off brewing illnesses and heal physical symptoms that have emerged.



Coming up Saturday 25 February 7 pm Biodynamics with Greg and Joanne Turner - details to follow shortly.

 Nurturing the Soul - Dinner
and sharing The Sacred Secrets of Sound from The Sound of Creation series* -  

Many have heard: “At first there was the word,” but does this really mean all of existence first sprang from sound?  Connecting  science with ancient knowledge, experts across fields use sacred geometry and quantum physics to analyse humanity’s universal links with sound, discussing evolution in relation to consciousness, exploring the origins of consciousness in our universe regarding  vibrations, frequency, and the sounds of creation.
plus a beautiful guided meditation. 
*This is the beginning of five more in this a series continuing on Saturday 7 pm about three weeks apart, e.g. Not on the Saturday preceding the first Sunday of the month. Each episode can stand beautifully alone. However the entire series is magnificant in its creation.  

SATURDAY 25 June beginning at 7 pm                                                          A Must-See movie for everyone - (Rated PG) 

The Cosmic Secret, featuring David Wilcock - Humanity's long-lost cosmic origins. This movie will make you question everything you thought you knew about reality. Prepare yourself for a film that may very well challenge your every belief system and in the process unveil the secrets of humanities’ long lost origins.

For time immemorial we have looked to the stars for answers to unlock our past. We have interpreted prophecy with the hope of predetermining our future, and yet questions remain. Who are we? Why are we here and what is our destiny? In "The Cosmic Secret," David Wilcock & Corey Goode, along with researchers, scientists, and archaeologists, discuss these very questions.

This movie will be rescreened in different time slots in th ehope everyone who wishes to see it can be accommodated. 



7 pm  Theosophy - Ageless Wisdom - Why? 

With Simon Webber Ph.D.  - Theosophy - A framework for awakening 

Key spiritual principles will be presented as they apply to our spiritual awakening or insight into finding out who we are.  

And with Richard Sell  – Right Understanding

As we travel along the ‘Spiritual Path’ we confront both external troubles and ourselves along the way. Choices are presented before us, but how will we choose?  Having a theosophical view on life and the spiritual journey is very helpful as we traverse through our incarnation. We take a look at ‘Right Understanding’ - how to proceed with living our lives, making the right decisions, acting right and even thinking right.

Preceded at 5 pm  by a Vegetarian and Vegan Potluck Dinner. 


Saturday 19 June 10.30 am   Screening from -   Holographic Universe Decoded   - 

Our reality may be a holographic projection, confirming ancient spiritual teachings that our physical existence is merely an illusion. If this is true, where does it all come from? From seekers to scientists, we delve into the mysteries of our holographic universe. They suggest that our world may be a 3D projection from the 2D surface of the universe, or a projection from a higher-level universe into our own. Either way, the experts agree - everything that we experience is wave-form information, interpreted as reality by our brains, creating the illusion of physicality. With this understanding, we are able to explore the implication for humanity as we unlock the intersection of cosmic unity, where science and spirituality merge.

Featuring: David Icke, Deep Prasad, Theresa Bullard, Nassim Haramein, Andrew Collins, Mary Rodwell  

Followed by the Archangels on the Age of Aquarius  -  

showing Channeler Belinda Womack speaking with Regina Meredith and sharing answers from archangels about the destiny of humanity and the questions of our time. As we move from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius, we learn to understand the interconnection we all have on our planet. 

This Solstice, Monday 21 June 2021, is said to mark the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. 

Everyone welcome. Entry towards Hall costs $5, concession to CS and Student ID card holders, TS members $2.

Saturday 12 June 10.30 am - The Atlants Experiment and the Fall of Atlantis - 

In modern times, as we are now exiting the Age of Pisces, we are awakening our consciousness as we regain thes histories of the past and once again reconnect across the generations.  Matias De Stefano reveals a deeper understanding of the vast pyramid network that the Empire used for control, how the misuse of this power disrupted the planet, and how we must learn from these stories. We are entering into a time when we can rediscover the power we once had, open portals to knowledge in higher dimensions, and once again fully awaken the consciousness of the planet.

At a very young age, Matias De Stefano remembered his connection to the Akashic Records. The information he recalled gave him a unique, and powerful understanding of the creation of the universe and the many layers of reality we all exist within. He brings forward these powerful revelations in this ground breaking series.   (via

 Saturday 29 May 2021 7 pm  -  The Impact of Our Thoughts - presentation by TSNZ National President John Vorstermans

 Thought is an energy that consciousness produces to modify the subtle matter of the mental field. When we think, we cause our mental field to vibrate in certain ways, and those vibrations are passed on to the surrounding matter of the mental world. Those vibrations create thought forms—shapes in the mental energy field—whose colours, shapes, definiteness of form, and persistence correspond to the quality, type, clarity, and intensity of the thought that produced them. One of the great Teachers said, succinctly and literally, “Thoughts are things.”

Preceded by a Vegetarian or vegan Potluck dinner at 5 pm. 


Saturday 8 May 10.30 am - Quantum Leap to the Other Side

Are you aware of the connection between consciousness and the soul? There may be a quantum view to explain this. Mark Anthony bridges the scientific and spiritual perspective of what he terms the “electromagnetic soul” which unifies us all.

When we die, the soul quantum leaps from the material world to the other side, which is considered the collective consciousness. 

Watch as he organizes the thoughts of Newtonian theory and the quantum view by correlating studies of biophotons, quantum leaping, and the relationship of death to the infinite in this screening of’s Beyond Belief hosted by George Noory;  and Dr  Theresa Bullard PhD speaks of the deeper universal truth about who we are and our spiritual connection with the universe. 

She relays the four principles that govern all quantum phenomena and how we can apply them to our lives. These are reflected in the Hermetic principles, and being proven out by new scientific discoveries; reaffirming that consciousness is an essential part of all that is.

Entry towards Hall costs $5 (Concession to CS and Student ID card holders $3) TS Members $2.



Saturday 1 May 10.30 am we have another in the series from's Matias de Stefano. While it is a series each episode can easily be watched on its own. All are excellent and it's information gives a basis for what is happening in today's world. It is entitled "Four Foundations for Humanity".  

Long before humanity as we know it existed, reptilians and giants ruled the Earth and sought to guide our destiny. These two extraterrestrial species guided the course of human civilization and our spiritual evolution, with differing plans. Matias De Stefano explains how these beings became guiding forces for humanity, as our civilizations first came into being and what they hope to gain from us.

Throughout the eons, several advanced beings have visited Earth, but for the past roughly 1,000,000 years, four specific races have been major influences on planet Earth to guide humans to advanced stages of progress and spiritual evolution. These four main species took up residence in the major portals of the Earth to influence the planetary elements, directions and states of human consciousness.

Matias De Stefano shares his memories of these four foundations of humanity that we now call: Mu, the Annunaki, giants, and reptilians. Some were loving and benevolent; others used fear and frustration as the energy and impetus to help propel human evolution to a more advanced state.  To comprehend how these beings used this polarity as a tool for our growth, we need to understand: 

• The geometry of creation, from the sixth to the fourth dimension, that created an evolutionary path for beings in the third dimension

 • The portals that brought advanced civilizations to the Earth and the kingdoms they ruled over 

• The advances that they brought to primitive humans which include language, genetics, and consciousness 

• Emotions are the portals to every dimension and why some of these beings felt they needed to rule over human emotions

Everyone is welcome. Entry $5 towards Hall costs.  (Concession for CS and Student ID card holders $3) TS members $2. 


Saturday 24 April 10.30 am – “Open Mind” interview is entitled Kali Yuga and Ascension

You are invited to watch a  screened interview by Regina Meredith. Michael Cremo reveals an important discovery from the ancient Puranas which tell us how we can survive the Kali Yuga. The Puranic texts of the ancient Vedic culture defined the characteristics of the Kali Yuga, an age that will eventually lead to the end of humanity as we know it. For some, this will be a time of great calamity and destruction. Others will learn to access their higher powers and restore consciousness to its original pure state, in order to transcend beyond the cycles of creation and destruction.

Michael A. Cremo is and independent historian of archeology who argues that humans have lived on the earth for billions of years. He is best known for being the author of Forbidden Archeology, and co-author of The Hidden History of the Human Race with Richard L. Thompson. 

Entry towards Hall costs $5 (concession to CS and Student ID card holders $3). TS members $2.  

Next Saturday 1 May we will continue the Matias de Stefano series which contains first hand experience and observations of our past.    

Everyone is welcome.

1.30 pm   Finding the Treasures Within

In a world where separation and individuality are so strongly emphasised, how can the fabric of life be strengthened and nurtured by the healing balm of Empathy and Compassion?

Saturday 20 March 10.30 am 

Heal  -  Take a scientific and spiritual journey to discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal.

The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe. This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all.

HEAL not only taps into the brilliant minds of leading scientists and spiritual teachers but follows three people on their high-stakes healing journeys.

In after-death communication (ADC), a living person perceives the presence of a physically deceased person or animal. In this presentation, Jan will summarize a systematic review of published research on ADC from the earliest study in 1894 through the most recent in 2010 involving a total of over 50,000 people from over 20 countries. Findings from this review reveal many facts about ADC, including their prevalence, incidence, forms, effects, and relationship to mental health. Jan will present an example of veridical ADC, in which the experiencer received information during the ADC that was otherwise unknown to any living person and that was subsequently verified as accurate.                                                                                              Audience members who have experienced ADC will have an opportunity to share their experiences and discuss implications of ADC for an understanding of consciousness.

2019 Saturday 7 December 10.30 am 

Introduction to your Brain – Dr Joe Dispenza terms being “supernatural” as having the ability to be to change your body and your world by thought alone.

He reveals the formula for rewiring your brain and changing your life. He explains that we are not hardwired to be a certain way for the entirety of our lives. Before you can understand how this works, you need an introduction to your brain and its parts, to learn how they affect what you think, do, and experience. Armed with this knowledge, you have the power to create coherence within.    (Webcast from Gaia Inc)

Webcast from Gaia Inc - Freddy Silva reveals the secrets to the construction and placement of tens of thousands of ancient temples across the face of the planet. Ages ago, after a world-wide cataclysm, an advanced civilization came forth to rebuild the former world of the gods. They built sacred temples, which encoded their knowledge of mathematics and the geometry of the heavens, to create places of power which could transform people’s lives.

Looking at the workings of heart intelligence, to explain the importance of cultivation compassion, gratitude and love. As new science catches up to ancient wisdom teachings, we see the data that the seat of human consciousness is not to be found in the brain, but in the heart. 
And in changing the way we live and changing the way we think will shift us into a new reality. Theresa Bullard, Ph.Dphysics, deftly interweaves complex concepts from ancient mystery teachings and quantum physics to bring us real-world ways in which we can deepen our spiritual connections and manifest a fulfilled life. Doing so, she shows us the way to reunite with source and tap into our unlimited potential as conscious beings.

Local community musician, Guy Donaldson, discusses music and the brain, how music connects with our consciousness, the historic connection of music with spirituality, the insights of Pythagoras, music’s relationships with mathematics and quantum theory, and how the quest for meaning has led some philosophers to believe that mathematics and music equally point to there being some givens in the universe beyond our immediate apprehension, but which form the basis of our existence.

Guy Donaldson received his formative piano instruction from Maurice Collier, and then at Canterbury University with Maurice Till. In 1984 he studied in London with Paul Hamburger and Roger Vignoles. Guy was a senior lecturer in music education at Massey until 2004, when he took leave to pursue his passion for performance and music teaching. He is active in the Manawatu as a teacher, adjudicator, piano soloist, accompanist, chamber music player and music coach, and was until the end of 2018 music director of the Renaissance Singers.

For centuries, mysticism has been a major force in our quest to experience God and the spiritual dimension of life. Over time, this quest has evolved into a new and more enlightened approach called practical mysticism. To be a practical mystic, an individual must be inwardly oriented toward the soul while at the same time focused on practical action in the outer world. In this presentation, the nature and application of practical mysticism will be presented. Methods for blending love and mind will be discussed, as well as a more enlightened understanding of spiritual service.  Presentation to the Theosophical Society in America by Dr William Meader

Values express our unfolding capacity to invest in, and devote ourselves to, activities within the world and within ourselves. Julia has taught both in Australia and for TSNZ. She will look at the living ness of theosophical ideas as they influence life, their relevance in providing an ‘anchor’ and a ‘compass’ in our rapidly changing world.

As a teacher and private practising psychologist earlier in life, Julia’s interest has always been in psycho-spiritual  development. She has a Master of Science degree in Esoteric Psychology from the University of the Seven Rays, and lives and teaches with her husband Orest at the Southern Lights Centre Meditation School at Akaroa.

6 pm Vegetarian Potluck Dinner – please bring a plate of vegan or vegetarian food to share in hosting Julia and Orest

7.30 pm The Electric Universe presentation with Orest Tarnawsky 

- Essentially knowing how to     enhance this “electrical flow” may be useful in promoting well-being. The gradual realisation of the significance of electricity in the human form was initiated by Harold Saxton Burr - Blueprint for Immortality - Electric Patterns of Life. Since then much investigation has contributed to our understanding. Several researchers and their work will be discussed.  Orest Tarnawsky had an early career as an art teacher and sculptor. Deep interest in the Ageless Wisdom teachings led him to attaining a Masters of Science in    Esotericism through the University of the Seven Rays. Combined, these developed Orest’s passion for and skill in mentoring those on the quest towards awakening consciousness and in teaching the Ageless Wisdom teachings through creative expression, study and meditation to all that enquire the way. He has a particular interest in plasma, sound and electricity in their microcosmic and macrocosmic aspects. (Diploma in Teaching, Bachelor of Arts (visual arts). Master of Science in Esotericism (esoteric psychology)).



     Saturday 2 June 7.30 pm John Vorstermans TSNZ President
looking at the essential steps to transforming the mind                                       as shared in the Yoga Sutras,                                                                                    with The Essence of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

To be able to live our life to its full potential in this day and age, it requires us to learn more skills and understand more about our own Mind. For some each day is another wonderful day of beautiful experiences, while for some the day could be difficult dealings to the extent that is tiring and draining due to contentious interactions with information overflow.
Mindful living session that takes you through understanding experiences that allows you to live with your full potential no matter what people, events and situation bring to you.
With Ravi Mistry, Art of Living Facilitator National Coordinator,                                                        hosted by TheosophyPN, Palmerston North Central. 


Saturday 7 April 7.30 pm






Know Universal Law and Your Self - Be your own Master, for the highest good of all concerned.

Science has shown in reality, a person’s perception, not genetic programming, is what spurs all action in the body. It is actually our beliefs that select our genes, that select our behaviour. Our emotions physically shape reality!

Anthea, a science (and maths) teacher, knows the difficulties a lack of knowledge of Universal Law caused her. Therefore she likes to bring forward science that verifies the Ageless Wisdom teachings.














Nondual Kashmir Śaivism is a religious philosophy that developed in Kashmir, India primarily between the ninth and eleventh century of the Common Era, and is currently undergoing a global revival. Like the philosophy of Advaita Vedānta, Kashmir Śaivism is a monistic, or nondual system, that asserts that ultimate reality is pure bliss (ānanda) consciousness (cit). However, unlike Advaita, Kashmir Śaivism does not claim that the phenomenal world of difference is merely an illusion (māyā); rather is maintains that the world, as the vibrational energy (spanda) of consciousness is real. This has led some modern commentators to describe it as a form of “idealistic realism.” Another important difference between Kashmir Śaivism and Advaita is that while Advaita finds scriptural authority for its philosophy in the Vedas, Kashmir Śaivism looks to the Tantras devoted to the God Śiva as the supreme consciousness. Finally, whereas Advaita philosophy is meant primarily for male ascetic renouncers, Kashmir Śaivism was developed to be practiced by both male and female householders, and therefore is completely compatible with modern life. This presentation will outline the worldview and main philosophical concepts of Nondual Kashmir Śaivism and describes some of its unique practices for realizing the supreme state of oneness and bliss consciousness
