Summer National Convention 2020
One Heart, One Breath, One World
We come together to explore theosophy and the power of the Heart to unify and transform our approach to life. We seek to understand the Spiritual journey as a transformative experience of integration and expanded awareness for each individual. The spiritual journey is often spoken of as the journey home, to KNOW and BECOME who we truly are. Come and join us for this exciting adventure!
